I know, I know , yet another Cold Knob ride..big deal. Well other than running into the boys playing in a big mud hole we had a rather unadventurous ride Sunday. Believe it or not we’re still coming on trails/roads we haven’t ridden before. We managed 88.5 miles and I was extremely happy to be in the lead as it was dusty. We stopped and refilled the quads on the way home as I was curious as to what kind of mileage we could expect. Jos quad took 4.1 gals of gas, so she should expect to get over 100 miles to a tank easily. Mine took 4.7 gas so I still had a little over a ½ gallon left so I think I should be able to push 100 also. Our riding was a combination of trail crawling and open roads so I think it should be a pretty accurate guess.
We have some new roads to explore unless they are on another clubs lease.

A view many of you might remember from last year. We took a group shot here.

We found the guys playing in this big mudhole. Don’t think anyone will be making it thru this unassisted anytime soon. Either that or they were filming swamp people on Cold Knob

We stopped by Nancy Harts grave site. She was a confederate spy during the Civil War.

Please keep the reports coming, G. Always enjoy your reports and of course, your pics.

Nasty mud those boys were in. That has overheated engine written all over it. Looked like they were having a good time.

Is the grave site in a state park that you were able to ride your quads to?

PP the grave site is just off the county road heading into Richwood. I didnt realize it was so close to where we come up Beckys Run and I should have taken you all to it last ride on the Mountain

Great pictures as always showing the good stuff in the area.

Good to hear the gas mileage is improving for you and Jo.

Bob, Cold Knob looks interesting. Me and some friends may want to check it out. Rupert appears to only be 45 minutes further than Hilltop where we usually ride out of. Are there places to spend the night around Rupert. Also, if you don't mind I would like your GPS tracks in case we do go. I will pm you my email address.

Just wondering if this site has the ability to attach files to post. Most of them do now, you just have to turn it on.
