Jaydee1445 and Nutzky came to spend the weekend with me at The Swamp

Our Shelter

Although I think we spent most of our off bike time at The Bayport Inn out on the rear deck slamming some suds



Jaydee will have to post pics of the Friday evening debauchery

And yes there was a girl's bacherlorette party and we were in the middle

Saturday Morning mandatory bacon pic

Jaydee and Nutzky


And yes the paramedics showed up about five minutes later for Nutzky's mandatory morning biff...

Jaydee you got the pics, right?



The guy at the bike shop said the owner hit the front fender with a chain saw so it's at the paint shop


Chassahowitzka Swamp

Nutzky "Francis" on his 2006 beat to shit 250 enduro

Watch out for that Swamp



Jaydee on his '03 ninefiddy

Yes this is a good area to ride a pig too; much of the road has been rocked in recent years


Orange vest due to it was the last weekend of hunting season


We stopped in order to take advantage of the superb hiking in this area...



Here's a shot of the trail leading to Buford Spring

Nutkzy's camera has all the pics from Friday and of the crash scene.
I hope they turned out. He broke the display when he crashed @ Maytown.
Screw this Hiking shite, I ain't doing this again.


The thick canopy was playing hell with my old GPS II+ so we turned around to find our way back to the trail, then the batteries died.
Nutkzy thought we were doomed. JD found the trail while I changed batteries.



This is where I lowsided@ about 45 mph after too much throttle Lost my glasses in the weeds. They were pretty twisted when I found them.
The Pressure suit saved me, only a bruised thigh

Saturday we awoke to broken bikes. JD's MZ took a nap on it's side and filled the airbox and cylinder with gas and Nutzky's KLR had a flat.


How the heck do you get this plug out?


Screw this, lets see if the bar is open.


The locals came out packing. Better turn back and find another trail.


Imagine that, a rattler on Rattlesnake Rd. Tastes like chicken.

The well pump burned out Friday @ the Swamp so we had our Saturday bath in the Weeki Wachee river. I still smell like a Mermaid.
Bet you guys in the north wish you were here. It got into the 80s.

The funny part was that Francis gave both me and Jaydee plastic kickstand discs the night before

I went out and checked my bike and it seemed to be fine where it was...

Then it rained

I really think it was my pet white tail that knocked it over during the night

Yea, big enough that he took out a section of the Mgt. Area fence behind my camp

And if he hadn't have made the hole in the fence we'd have to backtrack 15 miles to get out

I told the guys to stay put and I started walking around them in a circle...

We were within 200 feet of the road but you would never have known it

I used to hunt down in that swamp before bright eyes were invented,

It was a real bitch walking out after dark
