I'd love to ride down and camp a night, so if anyone has any information, I'd really appreciate cluing me in

Hope everyone is having a great week!

And as somebody mentioned the granddaddy of Swinging Bridges is just a few miles from Bagnell Dam. If you come down and want a guide I might be able to go.

Saturday

Well since I am the only one that didn't go to SLAP, I guess I'll check out the pirates tearing up their bike down at Shady Jacks, (Burnout on Broadway). Should be interesting, unless somebody pipes up with a better idea before 10:40 am.

Another NoOb

Hey guys,
Received an email from an inmate letting me know that I wasn't the only rider in Missouri so I thought that I would post an intro here. I'm currently living outside of Ft Leonard Wood and have really been enjoying the riding in central MO.

My current main rides are an '07 HD Street Bob and an '05 GSXR 600. I have a couple of bikes in pieces and pretend I have my own reality TV Chopper building show while I weld, grind, weld, and then grind some more on them. I probably shouldn't give up my day job so quick.

If anyone wants to ride give me a shout and if the Army doesn't have me off doing training or dumb stuff I'll be up for it.

Ball Mill Resurgence Site Near Lithium, Missouri

I've had this waypoint in my gps for a lot of years "BallMill"--------------went by it a jillion times but never hiked the 1/2 mile back to it.
I was visiting my friend Steve Robertson and he asks me if I've ever been there---and after he told me about it I had to see it and off we went.




Here's what it looks like on mapsource------and you can see it's about 2 miles South of the tiny town of Lithium, MO where there is a neat spring by the way.
You can see the waypoint I made where you need to park.

Here is the coordinates of the small parking area-------it's a no-brainer to find your way hiking back to the hole.
N37 48.190'
W89 53.129'









Just recently I've started packing shoes for hiking ---------and we went for a hike---and here is Steve starting down the trail.
Him and his wife have both been there-----and this is really an interesting an extremely unusual thing of nature.
I've never heard of anything like what I was about to see.





The ticks and chiggers are out----------and I brought an imbedded tick home with me.




We are just downstream of the big hole in the ground in this picture.




So we walk up to it------------I brought my hiking shoes------just didn't put them on . Probably a good thing as I would have had more chiggers and tics.




We came upon a 25 foot hole in the ground with a 70 ft. vertical cliff right above it.





So here is what happens when it rains a lot.
Now this is amazing--------water that pours into sink holes in the surrounding area finally starts shooting up out of this hole with quite a bit of pressure and shoots up out of the hole---with enough force is actually picks up those rocks you see and rolls them around like in a washing machine--------which makes a rumbling noise that can be heard quite a ways away we were told.
The rocks tumble and tumble and some of them are tumbled together for so long that become round and smooth.

I just found this amazing.




The excess water then runs down this creek and becomes a very fast flowing creek.











On the way back to Steve's we found this.
And after getting to Steve's I find out he plays guitar and we play guitars till almost midnight.









Built in 1927





And any Missouri ADV rider worth his salt knows where this is
Me and Sieg were going to ride thru here not long ago but figured it was under water-----------or washed out.




Got home and JoJo found that "Little Dog" had invaded my little piece of desert heaven.
It was a good 2 days of riding.
