Anyone know what they sell here?




I have ridden past this old mill / plant / something and still don't know what it used to be. The road is called "Oil Mill Road".



More to come...[/QUOTE]
The plant on oil mill road use to be a cotton oil plant and when in operation smelled worse than a paper mill and the store is just a backwoods general store

The area is north of Lake Ouachita north of Hot Springs just west of Hwy 7. Here is a map of the area.



I haven't gotten thru your entire ride report yet but I am sure you had a good time. Scotty and I were preriding some of Day 1 of the AR500 ride this coming weekend. Check out the ride report here.

Oleary, here is our breadcrumb trail. You can see where we backtracked and it looks like the same spot!

Unbelievable! It sure looked like it to me when I saw your photo. Dry Fork or Little Creek I think. I haven't seen or heard much from Peaches for quite some time. What has become of him?

Peaches pops in every once in a while. DQ and I rode with him a few weeks back. I think he got into AutoCross and spends a lot of time with cars now.

Day 2 continued

Then we decided to ride down the mountain on a 4 wheeler trail








Things went great until we reached the bottom and it started raining. It was hard to stand up in the slick mud, much less ride a 500 pound bike back up the mountain.







We all helped each other out and after a couple of hours of hard work, we were all out and had smiles on our faces.



We headed back to town for a late lunch and to dry off.

Day 3 of 5

I forgot to charge my camera battery so the only pics I took were a few with my cell phone.

Today started out with 5 of us from MS who ride quite a bit with each other. We know what to expect of each other and most of us like to turn it up a notch.

The crew: Me, BackwoodsKLR, Trailblazer 990, dirtdoadsinms, and theduck

We took some fantastic roads down to Oark for lunch. We arrived about 11:30



As we were getting ready to leave, another group pulled in.



As we are getting fuel and preparing to leave, a guy walks over to me and ask if he can ride with us. He heard we ride at a pretty good pace and thats his style. I welcomed him in but you never know what you are going to get with someone new. Let me say that Donnie fit right in. This guy can ride and he is fun to be around.

Meet Donnie (I assume he is on ADV but I dont know his screen name)



Water crossing








The road soon dead-ended so we turned around and headed back to the crossing.



Everyone made it through fine except Roger, who is now affectionately known as theduck. He managed to take a swim so we had to remove his spark plug and pump the water out of the engine.

We made it back to camp just before dark. I am still recovering from foot surgery and the long days still play havoc on it.

Day 4 of 5

The 6 of us joined another group today. There were 10 of us total. I was a little concerned about the number of riders but for the most part, things flowed very well.

Nice roads



Hello Greg






Theduck



Bob



I love these old barns

Day 4 continued

Hello theduck






Donnie has a small ranch in NW AR with some trails on it so he took us there to ride a few miles of them.
It was pretty slick under the leaves.


A little log jumping action







Enjoying life





Donnie has a few waterfalls on his property.



and a few buffalo


Hey Bob




More good dirt roads,




and a cave




Time to head in for some food and beer
