I just need a better clue, but that is just me. I will go anywhere my 690 will take me. I have to go to Griffin in the AM for work, and have plans for tomorrow afternoon, but Sunday is wide open. And I am always looking for new places to ride.

No worries, I just found the second set of coordinates, I can find them from there. Ritebike is on the hunt, do not move the twins, I have plans for them.

Oh lawd...last time that happened, the girls had to be stablized, sanitized,
remoralized, baptized, decriminalized, deodarized and sterilized because
they had been tyrannized, terrorized, tantalized, ghettoized, fetishized,
traumatized, heathenized, demoralized, Rite-ized.

But they ate good bar b q.

I spent way to much time in that rats nest, and still have no idea where those damn rocks are.

Maybe this will help show the error of your ways. If you don't feel up to a redo let me know & I'll pick them up this week. :)

That helps a lot, I didn't venture to far South of the power line cut. It will be a few days, but I will try and make it happen. I am glad that you put it there, it opened up a new place to ride my 200 XC-W, and to take my truck off road.

And I think I may have passed Ting on Union Grove today. Was that you Ting? It was a Brother on a scooter.

Doode....Ting tagged this place last year. I remember after I grabbed the tag and posted some pics of the powerlines you called to ask if the XC would be happy there. That place is crazy....I gave a jump to a couple guys in a jeep that had watered the starter and then spun the battery dry trying to restart. It was pretty neat when we got the Jeep going...they were blown away that a bike was able to jump start it!!! I'll try to get it this week but no promises.

Dude that was me. I was wondering if that may have been you on the
orange bike. Crap, I was close to turning around, but running a bit late.
Oh man, I hate I missed you. I was going to ride out as far as I could go,
then walk the rest of the way to the girls. I dragged bottom getting over
the curb on the the little turn-in, then bounced a few dips and figured
there was no way I was going to go down that long hill.

Man, I hate I missed you.

I think it is about time to get together for a drinking session soon. What do you all think? Maybe a night that Ghost Ryder can join us.

I think the 200 XC-W will be VERY happy there. I am going to take my truck out there as well. I can't believe how much is out there. I am having to work on the bike all this week, so I won't be able to get back out there, and I am out of town next weekend.

I've heard there are 15 miles of singletrack, but I've only been on a few miles of it. Going there for the first time without a GPS can be disorienting as you pick back through the woods to the powerline. Some of the singletrack sections are chewed up from centuries of use.. some are impassible. Once you go there a couple times you'll remember the main route. It took a dozen visits before I found the loop where I placed the rocks with eyes. That's now my favorite section.. the water crossings and the challenging hillclimb right after were right up my alley.

Been out there a couple times on my (now former) KX250 two smoker. I think a 125 or 200 would be just right for burning fast laps around there. The 640 is a handful in the tight stuff.

The 690 was definitely a handful.
