I'll likely be in the Eminence area Sunday. I'm camping at my property.
An overweight longhaired dude on a wr250r would be me. I hope to head over there later today to do
some work and then ride Sunday.

out for a ride today

Saw several of you out at Rusty's today for the offroad poker run. Here is a small video of Ross and I riding the easy loop and a bit of floyd tower trails.

It seemed like a real good turnout this time. Lots of Huskys there to try.

I was there on my 690 to tool the 2-tracks & dirt roads. Also trying to sell my '07 KTM/Thumper Racing 320 XCF-W. No bites on that.

One of my friends took 3rd place and took the $25 prize!

Cheers,

MrHix

Sunday was a nice day in the Ozarks even if it did cloud up. If you have to work this week, call in sick and enjoy the peak colors down there. I went for about 120+ mile loop....too much was backtracking from dead ends.
First stop was Stegall Mountain fire lookout.

You park maybe 2/10's of a mile down the road and walk the rest of the way.

My GPS showed a route through Peck Ranch which I knew was a fantasy from previous experience.
Lots of traffic here trying to catch a glimpse of the Elk.....no Elk seen.
I did find this little spring.

So after numerous dead ends I go to a road that I know will take me to my next spot.
This spot is near Fremont. I'm looking down the old track bed of the Current River Railroad. there is a RR tie
next to the glass bottle.

The next picture is just beyond there where you can see the old pilings from a creek crossing.

This is the same railroad that fed the logging industry in Grandin. Many of us ride what locals call "the tram road" but
in reality it was railroad and not a quickly built "tram road". Next stop was the old stack of the MIDCO smelter. I figured it was still posted NO Tresspassing but it was worth a chance.

Some old ruins near the smelter outside the posted sings.

Do a search on Midco and save me the trouble of plagarizing someone else's work
Or you can read a bit here.
Midco
I stopped in Van Buren at Jolly Cone for abite to eat and then went to visit another fire tower I had been to years ago.

This is the view from Deer Run lookout tower.
Not real far from there is this cabin I found back in the 90's. I don't know any history behind it but still had the waypoint after all these years.


I hit some more gated roads until I found my way back to highway 106.

Generally cross at Ste Gen. or Chester. But 255 will work. We can meet 21& M. You have a route or just ride 21 south? Time? PM me if it will work.
