Been out scouting today again. Found 3 new "slick crick" crossing and one bad-ass hill . After I cut and paste tonight I think I will have a route???. A loop with no back-tracks or crisscrossing. Used some of what we started with and alot of new. (6 days scouting) Don't use that return track from Lestrville I gave you, I hit so many dead-ends after I left you that day it's totaly changed. You must have been my good luck charm we didn't have to turn around once when you where with me.

Yesterday the MTNF and MDC lifted the fire ban. There is no longer an alert on the OSR website so I can assume
it has been lifted there too.

I have a route almost all laid out from Ste. Genevieve to Bixby and back. It will be about 175/200 miles each day. (I may ride the finial missing link tomorrow or Thursday if anyone wants to join me.) Saturday night we could camp at the MTRAs land ($5 and they have johns, a shower, campfire rings and a grill) or the motel in Viburnum. September 8/9 is the weekend I had in mind, or what ever. Let me know if there is an interest I will continue planning, if not Ill have a good loop for personal use.
Ok this may die from lack of interest. I have a track finished. Looks like me and Camel Bill are the only ones that can make it this weekend. Im pretty well booked with other riding trips and a wedding till December, sorry, so maybe next spring. Anyway I'll do it this week end if your Bill and anyone else wants too. The hard parts done all I need now is riders.

No Lack of interest here!

I would LOVE to try out the new route. However, I am off to Colorado, Wyoming and Utah this week. Let me know when you head out next time. And Thanks for your hard work on the route. -Kevin

Sounds like a fun ride, but there are 2 things keeping me from going......1) The Leadbelt National Enduro in Park Hills 2) Don't have a bike for that type of ride....the Duc exhaust is too low and the Husky is not street legal :(

Street legal = license plate (the one from the Duc will fit)

Unfortunately I'll be working the enduro all weekend. It's a tough job, riding trails all day, but someone's got to do it.

The weather is looking ideal for this ride, 70's both days, no rain, but chance of rain on Friday to keep the dust down. Doesn't get much better than that. What you got in mind for a start time & location on Saturday morning? BTW, I'll be on the nine-fiddy

Just e-mailed Farrell about this. I was going to start from I-55 and RT J cause there is a motel there, but I dont think that will be needed. I was going to cross the ferry too, but its closed because of low water. So I may haul to the start now crossing at Chester, in that case there is better truck parking at 55/32. Both spots are on the course since its a loop we dont miss anything either way. Im thinking meet at the gas station at the southwest corner of I-55 and RT 32 at 8A.M. Saturday. Where we met before. They have donuts!

I just want to let those of you in SW and Central Missouri know about the RustyJug Dualsport Ride tomorrow (Sat 9/8/2012). It's not my ride, but I want to make sure the word gets out. More info here:
