If I am not out of town I think I will join you. Have always wanted to ride it but just could not get anyone else interested. When time gets closer I will firm my plans up.

Lee, I'll see if my schedule permits me to get away. Its a whopping 1 hour from my front door to BR so I might see if I can slip down and join you. I think the first and last time I rode with you was there wasnt it?

It was either there or Garden Grounds Bob. You guys did manage to sneak me in before the changes. I seem to remember locking the keys in the truck that trip!

Sorry - I missed your post Bob T. Got sidetracked by work. It happens sometimes. You and that other Bob come on! There may be one or two others from NC showing up. One on a CanAm 2up and a SXS'er or RZR'er.

I should arrive at BR around 1 PM Thursday. Sounds like Rocinate will be there too, and ride with me (look over me) through Saturday. Darrin Albert and his wife may make it - 50/50. They would be on an orange RZR. Darrin said he might just rent a cabin there.

Read that as an open invite to join - or - come take charge of the festivities!

Wednesday update: I'll be on this. It's going in the truck in mere moments...

So I did make it.



So did 2 guides. Rocinate and G Bob



The group behind some no entry signs. Don't tell anyone!



Scenic Overlook on T-72

This adventure isn't like staying at Mountain Top at all. Instead of firing off some coal or something, now I got to decide between Outback and Applebees. Oh well...

Rest of todays photos are here.

Well I did get thru a ride without blowing a tire Wink However it wasnt without incident as a bee took upon itself to sting me above the eyebrow. I thought I'd got hit by a little rock at first until the burning started. With my luck I'm beginning to think its time to change hobbies again

You should have brought your BB gun! Laughing There was more excitement today. T-75 got me, and got me good. Luckily the Brute planted a 10.0 side landing and stayed on the trail. Luckier still I couldn't right it on own and send in on down. Man was it slick. I did make it 7 miles this time before my incident. Only made it 2 yesterday! clown

Still having fun though!!!!

100% fine. I seemed to finally remember how to ride an ATV Saturday. I had a grand time. Thanks for joining us Bob. It was good to see you again! All of my photos and some Darrin sent are here:

This one is partly an illusion or all about perspective...

Yes, it was worth it Bob. It's not the place (well sometimes maybe). It's the company you keep. I was in good company!

There were 2. One we could ride through. It was all new to me! Of course Bob T has been there. LOL! I didn't have much of an idea where we were until I viewed the tracks. Bob has us pegged though!!

I liked being last in line for a change!!! pirat

I get what you're saying about being last, but when you are leading the air is cleaner.
