We found another with a wire across it that wasn't very visible and we almost hit it. It was cabled at one end ---but not the other.

This one was just on the Missouri side of Chester, Illinois heading South.

DAM!!!

That's where I would have gone too.

It was very mucky out---maybe they'll take it down when it dries up ???

When you first get on it right off of route 51 its not gated (actually a cable)---but just a bit down the levee---maybe a 1/2 mile is where the cable was----we dove off the levee there on a dirt road heading East to paved route C.

Point rest is on the levee that was cabled---so we didn't ---------or couldn't go there.

Ate at Als restaurant in McBride late in the day----chicken and dumplins---and pie.

If you Missouri riders haven't been to this little town and restaurant----it is one of the neatest mom and pops I've ever ate in. About 5 miles West of Chester, Illinois on route 51---turn off the main highway into McBride----population-----------oh about 38 (during lunch at the restaurant) then it goes down to 4.
I owe this find to my buddy "Curious Steve"----------I've ridden by that little town 3,467 times in the past and never knew Al's was there.

It's always good when BigDog leads, (of course I'm a good follower as I don't care where or what or how much we ride) but the best part was after wondering around aimlessly for hours me pulls up at a dive with chic'n & dumplins on special. My favorite food, how's he do that?

That's awesome. Thanks for the wave. I'm not sure I was feeling stable enough to take my hand off the bar most of that ride.

I stopped at the boat ramp on 94 and then Treloar on the way to Marthasville so it probably was me you caught up with.

A friend just told me about Massas as well so I'll need to get back out there (and Charotte?sp?). I'll probably wait for dryer ground.

Cheers!

Creek crossing video.

We ran it Sunday

No helmet mounted. I need to adjust it a bit but I have no more sticky mounts.

Happy New year!

Good to see everybody coming out of hibernation a little and getting this thread active again. I had an excellent DS ride on New Years Day, about 300 miles, including lots of trails and even some single track.

Heading to the great white north for my annual snowmobile trip the last week of Jan. Maybe I'll post some footage when I get back. After that, bring on spring and let's wear out some rubber this year!
