Well, it looks like I won't be riding with you guys tomorrow. I am riding up to Memphis. Hopefully, if the weather cooperates, I will be back on Thursday and can ride next weekend. But take some pics and post them please.

Well we invaded LITF This morning and found a bunch of riders wanting to ride! A few HAD to go to some wedding?? Bronc3 managed to get excused and 5 of us had a really great ride Every type of terrain except water Everything was great until Bronc could no longer keep his blood inside we fixed that, then Josh decided he wanted two tank slappers within a mile And we finished the day with DR Z Trying to relocate his knee All in all a great and very exciting ride, all new area for me, most of it was VERY challenging Great ride everyone, you guys are great Josh went to bed awhile ago!

Sorry, couldn't make any of the rides this weekend, but I've still managed to get out and ride.

I've taken my kids to Croom, twice this past week. My daughter is slowly getting the hang of the sand on her TTR125 and my Son is starting to rip it up on the KTM 450EXC.

We went out to our little grassy spot, this afternoon, and putzed around for an hour or so until a guy and a kid had a collision. The guy was on a kind of mini bike, not wearing any gear and the kid was wearing full gear. Anyway they hit pretty much head on, fortunately not too fast. The little bike broke it's front wheel at the hub and we had to lift that onto the guys truck, the other bike bent it's front wheel. The two riders bashed their heads together, resulting in no injury to the kid but the other guy got a gash, down to his skull, from the kids helmet peak/visor, that was about 5" long and I guess will take about 30+ stitches to fix. We managed to get him off to hospital.

Anyway we are off to Croom again tomorrow and hopefully I can do a big boys ride next weekend.

Don't any of you so called Fleas have cameras ? Looks like a day of carnage without anything serious, I hope. Next weekend might be good for me.

Yep, my right knee is a little swollen. Hopefully, it's not too bad. I'm going to see the doc tomorrow. Heck, we still rode about 40-50 miles after my faceplant, so it can't be that bad, can it? I had a blast riding with Bronc3, DumpsterDiverDave (DDD), Josh, & Vertical HP. Bronc3 showed us some kewl single track (about as wide as your handle bars throughout most of the ride)! Overall, a great ride and it's good to put some more faces with names. Looking forward to riding with y'all again sometime.

I brought my camera but only took a few shots because we were having too much fun! Here's a few of the pics I took:

On one of the stops we made to see the Ranger for some first aid... From left to right: Scott, Josh, Mike, Dave


Here's the Ranger getting his first aid gear ready for Bronc3...


Here Bronc3 is all smiles after he was patched up... That wound looked pretty bad Bronc3, hopefully it won't need any stitches!


Sorry, I wish I could have taken more but no time to take pics when you're on the saddle all day having fun.

Thats better, I needed a dirt pic fix.
By the way, I saw someone on a yellow DRZ yesterday, coming out of the Villages Publix in Summerfield. Was it any of you ? Looks like you had a bag of groceries in your lap.

After hearing about you trying to rearrange your body parts...


Sounds like you all had a spectacular day.
Wish I had been there.
Next time.

That might have been DDDave. I think he lives in Summerfield.

I had a great time & rode some new stuff I've never ridden before.
There's always a next time!

I hope someone is riding next Sunday, because I am. It's been a long, long time.
