Cry Don't let me die alone

New Years resolution : now that the new year is here I hereby threaten to get out and sling some dirt at least one day afternoon /eve during the week .

From Orlando

I have 3 options in front of me .

Okechobee area - miles and miles of trails, doubletrack a few single or just make your own as needed . Soft sand, hard sand , mud, scrub , palmettos , hammocks, great riding No closing time ride into the night . ( have a camp there )

Holipaw - lots o sugar , mud , sugar , mud, sugar, mud there is some good riding there but I havn't begun to explore it yet , am ready. ride into the darkenss and beyond if need be. ( have a lot and gate keys there )

Croom - everyone knows Croom ... and no riding after 5 pm so that kinda rules that out

of course there are some other options for plated bikes that I'm open to if need or desire be.

I'm willing to travel an hour or 2 from Orlando to get some seat time so if anyone has other options close to them and doesn't mind someone tagging along .....I'm all ears

I plan on ditching work early and heading to the dirt early to late afternoon and getting in an hour or 2 or ? of scrambling if anyone want's to join I'd be happy to have someone to ride with. I have room in the truck and or trailer if your aren't to far off .I like fast doubletracks and tight through the woods single and busting my own trails when the terrain allows, I have brown/gray hair and also like long walks on the beach and smooth jazz (not) I'm going with or without and when I bleed out trailside alone in the darkness because you wussed out know that it will be on your head for not having your riding priorities in line

So .......

Looks like fun but it's kind of hard to get away on weekdays unless it's close by.

I'm south of Orlando in Haines City. I haven't even started the YZ yet.

Been busy working on chit around the house, car maintenance, bike maintenance, family time, etc, etc, etc.

Looks like I've got another weekend coming up of the same stuff.

All work & no play makes Dr.Z a dull chucklehead!

AH , the ever faithful Donkey .....perhaps the wind will carry my dying words of love for you and my final goodbye as I fade to black with no one to tell of my last struggle which will only be relayed by the marks of my twisted body as I drag myself trying to reach out for you from the distance.
