Hi new2moto,
Some of us try to get together and ride when we can. This time of year it's been kinda quiet. Hunting season has had some places out of reach. Hopefully in the next few weeks will be able to get out and do more rides. Keep an eye on the thread. Someone will post up a ride.

Yes, weather dependent.

Saturday looks like the better of the 2 days. See what the forecast looks like Friday afternoon. Any suggestions or preferences as to where someone speak up.

Hey guys & motogirl25 ,

Several of us Sandlappers may be eating in Ridgeland this Sunday and riding the WMAs afterwards if any of you are interested. Right now the forecast is warmer and drier for Sunday vs Saturday. Chatter is here.

Update (I just posted this as well over where we were planning Sunday's ride):

Well, the BBQ Grill and Dukes BBQ are closed on Sundays. There's a Jasper's Porch that has a Sunday buffet but it has some negative reviews on tripadvisor.com. More importantly, while looking at the weather forecast I noticed a flood warning from the NWS saying the Savannah was 2.7 feet above flood stage at Clyo last night. Here's the full text of it:
Issued by The National Weather Service, Charleston, SC:

THE FLOOD WARNING CONTINUES FOR THE SAVANNAH RIVER NEAR CLYO. * AT 8 PM WEDNESDAY THE STAGE WAS 13.7 FEET. * FLOOD STAGE IS 11.0 FEET. * MINOR FLOODING IS OCCURRING. * FORECAST... THE RIVER WILL CONTINUE TO FALL. * AT 13.3 FEET... ONE FOOT OF WATER COVERS TOM GOETHE ROAD JUST AFTER THE PAVEMENT ENDS.
I emailed the on-site DNR guy at Hamilton Ridge to ask about the road conditions in there and Webb WMA and he said the river swamp areas are flooded, and Fowl Craw Lake is inaccessible. I think even if the water recedes by Sunday, with Saturday's forecast being wet, I doubt they'll open any roads leading towards the river.

With no Q and no getting near the river, I think I'm going to bail on Sunday and wait on a dryer Saturday.

Knox and I might be game for a ride on Sunday. Depends on what comes up and if I can kick this sinus infection's butt by then. First dose of antibiotics today so hopefully I will feel better by then. We went riding on some dirt roads last Sunday towards Pembroke and had a great time. The weather was wonderful and I got to try out my new Rev'It jacket :).

Guys,
I was just reminded last night I have a birthday party to go to tomorrow at 1:00 for my step grandson. Doesn't look like I'll be able to take any long ride but if anyone is interested it would be nice to meet up somewhere local to grab a bite to eat.

Anyone interested speak up
