The beginning of a nice powerslide. I took the photo too soon again. Sorry.




Valvecrusher said he had explored this small track earlier. It offered a nice view.



Speak of the devil.




That track is going to require some bicycle recon. We pushed on to Maple Sally for a "backwards" run. I think the other direction might be a little better for drifiting as more of the turns are constricting radius in this direction.

It was getting dark.




I went on reserve before the end of Maple Sally. 124 miles back to the house.

Im going saturday. There's a ballfield parking lot in Collestville behind the gas station, that where the trailer people unload. HWY 90 and Adecko Rd. Then its about 3-4 mile to dirt.

It was a epic ride...props to AppalachianDR for toughing it out with us..he was hardcore, riding SM street tires up a mountainside, covered with wet leaves..never quit spinning the rear tire..
The only riding shot i got of anyone all day... everything else came in blurry...

You'll probably have to play around with the settings on that new toy.....look for a "burst" mode for action shots.

Sometimes if you set it to manual focus and just estimate the distance it'll catch action better too, since you're eliminating the auto-focus lag.

Hey "digital film" is free.....get out there on the street and practice.

It's supposed to warm up again by Sun-Mon.....the Mrs. is due home today...maybe she'll want to go riding one of those days...but...
my truck acted up again on the way home, so we may have to ride closer to home though.
(I think it may just be the EGR valve sticking open after a long hi-way run or possibly the spark advance)

What's going to be the gravel/pavement ratio on this one?
Any good goat trails?

Oncer leaving the gas station I plan on staying on gravel til I get back, i'll have a newer DS'er with me so I don't see doing many goat trails, unless everyone wants too.
