Text or leave a voice mail.

Only took a handful of photos today. Nice ride, met Eric and Steve for the first time, there were 9 of us total.

I managed to cut myself out of the group shot cause I got mad photo skilz.

I do have everyone individually going through the creek, except for Gorman, I only opted to post Steve but if anyone wants their individual shot shoot me a PM.

It was nice to catch up with some old friends and meet some new ones today. Thanks to Alan, Mark , and Mike for showing us around and helping out where needed.

Mark, Alan and I finished up the day at Wills Creek which I found to be a bit of a challenge. Wrestling the pig around all the mud wore me out, but it was fun and a challenge conquered is good for building skills.

I was wishing for a 250 at times today, but the tractor did pretty well.

meanwhile, I got out on Sabrina and did about 250 miles...snagged 3 covered bridges and rode all through the Shawnee State Forest...good place for a dual sport ride, much gravel/dirt roads....only found one very short (maybe 100-150 feet) slick spot but it was a straight so I was able to roll gently over it with no issues (unlike last week when Pete and I went to Leo Petroglyph Park.)

found a burned down house and the shack/garage next to is that survived the fire:







and speaking of shacks, I found a good BBQ shack in West Union:







and managed to snag a great file photo for tag. all in all, not a bad way to spend the day.

Nice!

Can someone put screen names to the faces? I know Gorman and Alan and of course Meef. Actually some of those old fat white guys look familiar too.

Looks like its muddier up that way than it is down here. I only did about 175 miles, just scouting around. Found a few cool trails. Considered riding north, but it was 29F when I would have had to leave.
I think I found out why folks like steering stabilizers. I was wide open for several miles on some old AEP haul roads today, 70-75mph, soft spots and potholes give the arms quite a workout on dirt roads at those speeds.

Lots of fun riding with y'all today ! Thanks for the encouragement, tips and reminders, Alan, mgorman & meef. My lack of off road skills was a little embarrassing,
