Home safe,

Had fun thanks everybody

Well I dropped the Vstrom so the group identity is preserved. The regular route was too much for ME, Vstrom and the 1/2 used Anakees. I screwed up and followed a group into a hero and dropped it trying to turn around. Then on a #2 found a tire sized holes and only with 2 other guys could we lift the beast free. So when I see I am on route 2 I pointed her home.

If there is a next time the TW will be doing it

I had fun will do it again just brought the wrong tool

I definitely enjoyed the camping and the group

Hope you all are happy

Home safe and sound. Sorry I left the group , I didn't realize I was the only one who turned right to head to the Hero and SuperHero sections. You should all be glad you didnt follow. Oh my freakin God ! The tunnel road .5 mile section was tough but I got through it, so I figured why not try Old Florida Road. I missed the turn off and ran into 5 guys from Jersey on big KTMs who also missed the turnoff. I turned around and found the road with the sweep riders parked there waiting for the last guys to come through. They turned the Jersey Boys away and told them not to take the Adventures in there. A wise decision. I went in. The roughest nastiest riding I have ever done. 4 miles in first gear. Picking your way over couch sized rocks, every turn I prayed for a break, but it does not end. The sweep riders caught up to me and stayed with me till the end. Totally whipped. I did get most of it on video. I only crashed once and turned the camera off at that point. I got back to Otis about 5 oclock and home by 7. Sorry for leaving the group hanging, I didn't realize what I was getting myself into. Still had a great time.

Damn Drew, sounds rough. Makes me want to bring the small bike back up there. Well that, and all the scenic views and endless dirt roads and trails.
