I had two things to do today: see a supplier in Ellington and check out a harvest site at University Forest. It was incredible. Left the office at 7:30 and went straight to Bay Creek. Very quiet, with just two of the good riverside sites in use. Then over to Alley where I hit the creek road to Eminence. This was about 9 and the fish were hopping!



Motored on the Ellington. I had forgotten how nice 106 is East of Eminence. Great road.

Did you know there is a cycling hostel in Ellington? Crazy.

Lunch was at the tiny, dirty, sketchy Mill Creek store, Mill Creek, MO. Go there. Killer burger.


Double with cheese, chips and a can for 5$. Nice.

It was about boiling after I left the woods, so I stripped down and jumped in lake wapapello. That was the opposite of refreshing.

That was my day at work. I missed one conference call and a production lunch, but man oh man, it was a good 300 miles.

I agree with ya there! 41 yrs old next month and I'm still having a ball in the dirt.. been riding a lot of trails lately on my WR250F and its so much fun... esp. now that my two young boys are riding with me! Makes me a better ADV rider for sure... soon enough I'll be too old for this stuff and I just can't have that.. yet! I hope to have my boys join me on some adv trips in about 6 or 7 yrs...

Those were the days my friend, I thought they'd never end.......

Enjoy your wife, your children and your riding (in that order) every day. And freeze dry those children when they get around 10 years old.........before they get to that "roll their eyes" "everything you do is wrong" stage.

My old riding buddy (who worked outside everyday of his life) is 73 and still riding difficult single track. It CAN be done. But for those of us who were trapped in an office ten hours a day for 45 years of their lives (read that as over weight and out of shape)......it's a bit more difficult at 71 than it was at 60 or 65.

Where is this pic taken? Looks like a great trail to ride regardless how big the bike.

I'll be 53 in October, still do a bit of trail riding and racing. I taught my son to ride when he was 4 on an old Suzuki JR50. At one time me (KDX200), my wife (XR200), son (KX 80) and daughter (PW50) used to ride. Wife hurt her back and her riding days were over, daughter decided it was more fun to shop with mom. When my son went to college we sold his bike to help pay for tuition etc. Alot of great memories of riding in the desert of California (I was stationed at Edwards AFB CA from 1988 to 1992) and the hills and dirt of Missouri. So many great memories, and met some of the best people in the world. This is a pic of me last November at a Hill Billy Gran Prix race near Bolivar, MO. BTW yesterday I brought home my newest KTM - a 690 Enduro, and soon as my ribs heal well enough to go back to work and the doctor allows it I plan on getting in on some of these rides everyone is talking about.

106 is part of the Adventure Cycling TransAmerica Trail

I had an ultralight flying buddy who lived in southern Illinois who rode it coast to coast on a recumbent.

Thanks for the invite Sieg, but the wife and I will be in Jackson Hole WY that weekend. I've been lurking and reading the reports on some of your infamous rides and can't wait to get in on them.
