Mama's day is Sunday so Saturday is probably best for me.

Anyone want to offer there services as a guide?

That's what those damn KTM guys kept doing to me on the trails this weekend. Talk about impatient...before I could even think about getting out of their way I'm being passed on both sides at the same time!

According to Alan, it's much better than it used to be. I have only been once, this spring, and it is worth the trip. The really gnarly muddy spots mostly have bypases.

I was relieved to hear that it wasnt you involved. I heard stolen cop car and Sparta and pictured you turning it into a woods buggy.

Plus,several of the old township roads that are included in a lot of the Tar Hollow rides are pretty close to the house.
Sweet! We will keep you posted!!!

1.5 hours pass and it's 4 flippin' pages. I can't wait to read them.....

Fixed.


Case closed, we see your point.


(seriously Mark I am just fucking around with you and could care less either way.)

While it's a sad story, and I feel for all involved, I had to chuckle a bit at the fact the guy stole a cop car and drove it to Mc Donalds.

I have to think that the deer he hit was pregnant, there is a SMASHED doe and a tiny fawn in the road about a mile up from our place....I think he hit it so hard it knocked the baby out....

I read that? I think the guy must have been high on bath salts and just finished watching the Blues Brothers.

Im thankful he wasnt. I could see the dead mans family trying to sue Brandon for shooting too quickly and blaming it on him not being back to work for very long after his situation. Families for losers never see their offspring for what they really are or were, only as innocent little angels.

EDIT** HOLY COW, you guys are on a posting frenzy!

Just remember, bicycles were here before the cars And just for the record, the 1st road atlas for Ohio was publish by the League of American Wheelmen, Ohio Division in 1897. If you're bored, I have an original you can come up and read. It has all the road surface conditions and routes between major cities and a map for each of the 88 counties.

If my memory serves me correctly, it says that if you want to ride across Vinton County, you would be better off walking or taking the train. Sounds like perfect roads to me!

Not really a gunfight, it was kind of one sided.
