There were quite a few sightings in the area around our farm about 4 years back. However there have not been nearly as many credible reports since then. Makes me wonder if it was an animal that had been released by its owner.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

All kinds of weid creatures around that part of the world...
The outside world learned about Louisiana's Honey Island Swamp Monster in 1974 when two hunters emerged from a remote area of backwater sloughs with plaster casts of "unusual tracks." The men claimed they discovered the footprints near a wild boar that lay with its throat gashed. They also stated that over a decade earlier, in 1963, they had seen similar tracks after encountering an awesome creature. They described it as standing seven feet tall, being covered with grayish hair, and having large amber-colored eyes. However, the monster had promptly run away and an afternoon rainstorm had obliterated its tracks, the men said.
The hunters were Harlan E. Ford and his friend Billy Mills, both of whom worked as air-traffic controllers.

If I were a T-Rex, I'd eat them too. Think about how frustrating it must be to have those little useless arms. You know he got made fun of on the dinosaur playground.

I guess this was one hell of a thread hijack. So how bout' those riders in south MS?

Hello

I returned from the desert a couple of months ago, recently bought a new bike, and I thought it was time to introduce myself; I've been lurking around here way too long. Being stationed in Biloxi, I'd love to learn about some of the good riding spots around here. Unfortunately, I was deployed shortly after moving here, so I'm still trying to learn my way around. I'd appreciate any suggestions, advice, tips, etc., you can offer. Thanks.

Bike Show Today

I know this is really late notice, but I figured I'd get the word out to the ADV world. My dad and younger brother are putting on a motorcycle show today to raise money for his high school's robotics team. It's going to be in the parking lot of Competition Sports (the Sea-Doo dealership) on Courthouse Road in Gulfport from 10-3. I'm at school in Oxford now so I won't be able to make it. There is going to be food, drinks, music, a people's choice award for the top 3 favorite bikes, and a raffle of a 1979 Honda CX500 Custom with only 3500 original miles. If anyone sees this and feels the urge to get out, enjoy the weather, and possibly ride home on a great classic motorcycle, ride on down to coast and show off your rides.

Old Americus, MS. Still a little peeved I was the only one that got wet feet. We all went through twice, i think i might've been a little throttle happy. Area is very flooded and most folks use a boat or atv to get to and fro.
