Greetings Hillbillies! Checking in for the first time this year. The Subaru business is rocking, so I shouldn't complain, but I get tired of working all the damn time. Only ridden twice this month/year.

Pete and I cut a sweet route out of Fayetteville to Talimena. 80% dirt, 20% state back roads. No need to trailer to Oklahomo.

You can get from the K-trail to Mena pretty easily on almost all dirt. Countless Jeep/4x4 trails fanning out in all directions. Lots of fat dirt/FS roads to explore over there, great look outs etc. If you are feeling more adventurous, there are miles of nasty single track as well. Clayton Lake State Park is a great place to camp with a trailer, but with street legal bikes, I prefer to camp on top of Kiamichi Mountain Ridge. Pete and I hit all the above on our knobbie tire street bikes. Round trip out of Fayetteville with all our camping gear strapped on the bikes was easy. Plenty of places for fuel until you get pretty deep. Be sure to fuel up in Clayton before you get on the K-trail. Used to be a gas stop just off the K-Trail, but last time I was there it was closed. Luckily we had a few MSR fuel cans or we would have been walking.

Happy Adventuring bitches!

You're supposed to cut the heat off at home first and then describe the options...

BTW, heating blankets are a product from the devil.

Thumb leak

The roofer dude dropped by and checked-out the leak. We had a nail-hole through a small gap between the decking.
I think he fixed it.

For me that would be 30 seconds of warmth followed by an eternity of cold - 6ft underground.
