Heading to the Tar Hollow area to explore. Can anyone recommend a place for lunch down that way?

Utilizing the Tent-Space thread... I'm trying to make this loop become a reality:


Might be leaving mid-next week. I'd love to get out west(er), and see Colorado and Utah, but I'm afraid it's still to early in the season. Colorado is still getting fresh snow.

I'm dying to install my auxiliary fuel tank from my last bike... But I'm a bit terrified about drilling a big hole in the bottom of my factory fuel tank immediately before leaving on a big trip.

There is a gas station that has pizza & sandwiches at the int of SR56 and SR664. Jimbos is just south of there on SR56 but wasn't open when I was over that way a few weeks ago.

Jimbo’s Bar and Diner
23356 SR 56
(somewhat southwest of the intersection of SR 664 and SR 56)
South Bloomingville, OH
740.332.6550

The high desert parts of Colorado, like Rabbit Valley, should be good. Moab should be good by now too. I was there 2 years ago, around this time.

My stomach didn't make it that far (or I need to ride faster). Taking my chances in a little place called Cherry Street Diner in Ashville.

That is not Texas!

Perhaps southern Oklahoma or Northwest Dallas at best.

167 miles down to Tar Hollow and back. I found a few gravel roads and a bunch of renegade / unmarked trails. I explored as much as time allowed. Some photos:

That's always a good sign:



Power line trails:



Wildflowers in bloom:



Tall pines in Tar Hollow:



If anyone is interested, here's the route. The black roads are asphalt and the green roads are gravel.

No that's the longest one I got , got 'em in 3/8" and 1/2". Perfect length for transmission bell housing bolts back in the 70's and 80's. Good eye.

I have a couple like that, one is too long to fit in my toolbox. Top bellhousing bolts on jeeps take one of those, a u joint, a 6 inch extension, and one of those reverse torx sockets. Or, a holesaw through the firewall, which is what I usually do.

If I head much further south than that, I'm afraid i'll hit the Mexico boarder and there'd be no turning back! I'd LOVE to get down there and travel Mexico and Central America.
