sunday ride

well the weekend is upon us again and a ride is being planned. leaning towards a ride to the old camp livingston area just north and west of alexandria. a little dirt,35miles, or so is layed out in this area. it is of interest as it has some areas to explore and ride light dirt trails if the quads have not ripped it tooooo much. me and mud have nothing in common. like hard dirt, gravel and some sand. anyway it is worth a trip down there for a look see. we can always find alternate riding in this area. hopefully we can pick up some riders this week. thank you for your time alan

a sunday in the woods

Well I can say we made it thru another adventure,ride or whatever two not so young wanderers may call it. Ridgerunner and myself went down to Camp Livingston area and cleaned out the quad trails. Mud,which I somewhat hate, seemed to be on the menue for this ride. Weather was amazing for Feburary and we had the trails to ourselves. Lost for hours and a tank full of fuel was the result of our cutting trails and not having any nav. equipment,again. Well the sun was out so all was not lost as we remembered going in on the east. Every try to go due west in the darn woods? Spent some time getting back to civilization and hwy. 165. Running dirt and gravel roads on the east side of 165 finally led us back home. Another good ride with a good friend. Thanks Ridgrunner later Alan

message to trailmaster

If you want to ride next weekend on some solid ground let me know. I think Ridgerunner has fishing plans. I"ll let you pick your poison as it matters not to me. I will ride the Beeeeeeeemer. Oh by the way I made mention at DJ"S about you and Debbie said she knew you. Shoot me a line if this works for you. Oh! bring your nav. equipment if you want to get home in a timely manor. Getting lost is one of my best traits. Latter Alan
P.S. Ridgerunner if you can make it that would be great as always. Don't forget Mrs. T's special day. lol

we headed on for a bit until we started seeing figures along the roadside with mock weapons,OK i will go ahead and say it assault weapons damn it. then the sign came up that stated DANGER live rounds and munitions. this is where the smart phone came out as we had no maps of our home state with us. smart phone was of no use as this place was not for mortals to be riding adv. bikes on . we were to travel for about an hour is this forbidden zone. crossing many low water sites and turning a few times. PS road turns were marked with arrrows made from limbs. old time weigh points for all you gps folks. many mock villiages and destroyed cars trucks and helios in this area. at this time things are not looking so good. finally we see a camera on a tower off the road and all wave at it. sure enough help comes really quick. this is fed. land in the middle of live fire exercises and we werent invited. as luck would have it we were nicely escorted off the area and not detained. Didn't know Ft. Polk covers a large portion of the Eastern side of Toledo Bend, eh?

Sounds like a great ride, Guys! Next time, leave early and wiggle down to Mamou, arriving at Fred's Lounge well before 0800 on Saturday ( http://www.esquire.com/features/best-bars-in-america/best-bars-2012/freds-lounge-0612) so you can down some fresh pony beers while the Cajun bands get wound up. Probably a good move to reserve a room at Hotel Cazan first, though (http://www.hotelcazan.com/id9.html. ) When you get hungry, ask for directions to Charlie's Meat Market, home of the best red boudin in the world (IMO, of course) and a bunch of other seriously fine comestibles.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Sounds great. This coming weekend will work much better for me. This past weekend was my daughters 6th birthday party as we had 20+ kids out at the farm all day Saturday. Which day works best for you?
