I think it is a wonderful thing you have done. Having a wife who is deaf and blind must be tough. God bless you sir.

ANyone need a trailer? I have a 16' tandem axle I want to unload. It was built out of an old 24' camper, the axles both have brakes, it has a 2 5/16" coupler. The axles are 3500#, I have had about 5000 pounds on it with no problem. It's too short for my tractor with the brush cutter and loader and I want to move up to a 12k trailer.

I put it on CL for $750, I'd sell it to an adv'er for $700.

If anyone is interested in an OH ADV cap let me know. I had a friend make about a dozen for me. Logo is embroidered on a top quality made in China low profile adjustable cap in either khaki or black. My cost is $15 each and that's what I'd sell them for if I don't have to ship.

Anybody thinking of doing this ride on Sat?

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=148

I don't know much detail about it other than what is in the post. I'm considering riding the KTM over if the weather is decent. Looks like fun, gravel roads mostly.

Thoughts?

Any of you bike pedalers wanna join me at Alum Creek I'll be there Tues. and Thurs. around 1pm for some trail time...and Qdoba afterwards (Chipotle without the obnoxious world music and dicks in North Face garb).

Speaking of trails I spent my weekend in the woods carving out more single track in my woods. Getting close to 3 miles, I'm thinking I can work in another 3 if I plan carefully. Got some skinnies built, have a few huge tree trunks that will serve as technical bridges once I can get them hoisted them into place.

This is in addition to the motorcycle loop that's already there...some of you have ridden that part.

They are strong enough...but not if you miss them.

Omta

I know a couple of new faces from the ADV Ohio thread made it to the OMTA meeting on Sunday. Unfortunately I was unable to go and had to sen in my report on legislative action and called in for questions. I know GailCallsMeCarl was there, and I think Z@ch went also? Maybe I can coerce GCMC into providing a recap for everyone. Might be interesting to hear it from a newcomer to the sport and the organization. Plus I heard that she fell asleep, and woke up to find she had been nominated for a job within OMTA. Hey, it's our way of hazing the newcomer; how do you think I got this job?

There's quite a few logovers on the bicycle path, but that one would have fucked up a really fun down/across/up creek crossing.

If you wanna try the motorcycle loop, by all means give it a whirl there's plenty of rocks, logs and steep creek banks left for the heroic. There's lots of multi-flora that hangs out and tears you up, so you really feel manly when you get done.
