I've been on a lot of roads just traveling about in the Nat" to Many to Leesville Area. Love getting lost in the big forest up there. All ways make sure I have a full tank leaving Leesville headed north into the forest area.

I forgot to mention that HWY 191 sort of sucks compared to what I have in store for you guys.
Even for folks that are used to riding twisties else where have been thoroughly impressed with this secret little road. Its no Deal's Gap, but fun regardless.

My wife and I went on our first ride together today. Did some meandering backroads and she even wanted to hit a dirt road. Kacy did great..... but she had a dumb-ass cell phone tottin' woman try and kill her... so shes a little freaked out about that but kept riding... I wish I had a brick to throw through the windshield of the bitch's car... did give her an unfriendly salute however!

That's wonderful that you can ride together. Not so wonderful about the close call.

How did you get such a pretty woman to marry you?

I have been doing some more exploring for new routes....

Thursday 10-2-08
Having a buddy (retired fella) gets me motivated to get out more







But being 66, on a heavy bike in decently tough conditions... I am obligated to help him up a few times...

I mean I did drag him down the road....















(A nice find. A dog-trot style home.)



Monday 10-6-08


Same fella on the Dakar. Decided 4wheels for today's challenge are better than 2.









Jim took a direct route to this point. I took a route that was double the distance and included a trail. On the dirt roads, I was in rally mode, doing 70mph. I beat him.

Speaking of Deal's Gap and area, I hope to be in that neighborhood Monday through about Thursday playing about on the Bandit. ;-). N. Georgia, N.C. and Tenn.

Ehhh, we went by a hunting camp with a ton of dogs. Immediately after the camp, we made a left. There was a gate, a lot of sand, and a stick. You go three miles passed that location and that is where the house is....

Not many dog trot houses left.

The best I can do is that it is close to here.... N31 31.067 W93 20.020


not in kisatchie

Thanks. That's on the other side of the interstate from where I was thinking. I was off of the Longleaf byway.

Looking again, it is the correct side of the interstate. We camped off of Longleaf years ago, not all that far from an artesian spring (pipe coming out of the ground) and on right a stream. There was a "house" like the one in the pic on the way in. Seems like it was historic and watched by the forest service. I went to NSU in the late 80's/early 90's.

That would be the old Beasley House
