now to go thru a few hours of LBL200 video then a few hours of Copper Penny DS ride video. :(
Actually, none of that is part of the TETs loop. IIRC, it goes up the east side of AL?

This route consists of a little of TreeMan's Sneads to Pine Mountain route and and maybe some of the Atl-FL dualsport ride by CraftyCoder. Also the Dixie Dual sport guys had a lot of this laid out too on their Cuthbert ride. U just put a loop together of the best roads that we could do from Senoia down to Cuthbert and back.

I have a GDB/GPX file I can share, but doesn't look like I can attach it here.

One of the things I'm not sure of though is I saw a picture a month back that that skinny wooden bridge had collapsed and a lot of the good stuff was just past that? Supposedly the deer hunters built that, so maybe they'll fix it?

That was a great looking ride. I forgot how many dirt roads there are to ride south of I-20. I did take a trip to Ft. Walton and took some side roads down through Andalusia AL; wow the Conecuh Nat. Forest looks cool.

I wish there was a mapping service that was only dirt roads. There's not is there?

I'm not aware of any mapping service that would actually route you on dirt roads on purpose. One of the reasons is very few are actually up to date on what actually is paved vs dirt. One of the best way to find dirt roads is county type maps, but it takes a lot of time studying them and then putting a route together. Then of course, you don't know if the roads still exist, are accessible, or how tough or easy they are until you ride them.

route planning...

this is still a lot of work that relies on you to carefully look and select the routes, but google earth platform makes it easier than most other tools and it also outputs a roadbook that you can share...

Trip planning question.

If I am riding a girls bike, do I have to stop and ask directions?
