Any of y'all want to ride 500 miles of gravel in NW AR this April? I'm getting ready to sign up & pay the fee. It's a beautiful part of the country that is unmolested compared to a lot of the US. It's only 12hrs to get there.

Sounds good Eric.
Snazzy is good and we need more of that around this joint.

One of the stops will be here:

Woah! That looks great. Someone got funky with infrared film.

Looking forward to the ride.

Think we'll be home in time for the Super Bowl?

Very good, your exactly right.
The last visitor to my Geocache located at the train tunnel made those (and more) pictures here:

the powerline trails are gone. logged to death, they're still out there using the trails as a highway for skidders.

now, I wonder if they know they're treading on pitcher plant territory - I wonder if any environmentalists would be interested in this fact.... calling SPERZ to the green courtesy phone

What power line trails are you talking about. The one by FBMs house?

Not my pictures.
I know of three locals that ride with us that have expensive camera equipment. Dallas, Jeff and Eric.
Eric picked right up that those were taken with infrared filter.

I can tell my little point and shoot camera is degrading.
Pictures are looking a bit out of focus(or something).
Time for a new one.
What to buy?????
