Heading out to Forest City Riders club grounds for thier picnic, camper & the mighty CRF280X is loaded and ready, 10 lbs. of German Potato Salad in a crockpot prepard last night, this will be the first time back on the bike after my soil sample at Walnutz 4 weeks ago.

For those of you that rode Leaf River DS in the past, the trail runs thru the club grounds, it's right after the big red barn where you got your first poker hand, big pond with a couple of miles of single track and 2 creek crossings.
