Thoroughly enjoyed the ride today Tony, thanks for leading it. Melvin, you should have came, we did not see a single hunter!

Tony you lead a great ride today, about 6 or 7 of us lost you after the trail tunnel. Surprise Surprise Missed the turn to Burnt Corn, got gas in Monroeville, rode back home with Eric. Great day.

Sunday ride

FBM, thanks for taking the lead today. Had a great time riding with you and Skid. Trails were perfect, temperature was ideal and everyone returned unscathed. Good stuff..

Ditto MM! FBM gave us the big tour today of west Brox. Not much dust, and didn't see anyone in the woods. FBMan looked like a superhero up there with his orange bandana/cape flappin' in the breeze!


Good times and my forks are feeling much better.

Great ride today. Looking forward to many more to come!

Another Madhouse Wonder Ride

Well Madhouse finally got his wish... lots of riders and NO issues... plus one the the best days of the year to ride...

We too got lost and had to regroup. Went North to Camden and then East and back down. Sorry I missed the tunnel AGAIN.

I rode 327 miles yesterday! Actually wore me out. I didnt even make it to the end of superbowl!

I will post some vids up later. There were several of you there I never got a chance to meet and greet.

Eric, being one of them.... Thanks for the vid BTW.

And of course a special thanks to our Madhouse for leading... and leading quickly...

Great ride Once more Tony.
Great Vid. Eric
No one got hurt - What's up with that ?????
Jeff kicks ass on his DirtWing, put some TKC's on it and take him to the woods to ride and we may have to start calling him SingleTrackJeff or some thing like that.

Thanks for the ride Madhouse. I need to get your $2 bungee back to you. Maybe I'll get that plastic at the same time.
For as many riders as we had it went OK. We need to work on communication when there's such a large group. Right down to when we split off people were making mistakes. Luckily I noticed JP followed us instead of you.

My only pic

Even if you skip middle at least see the end.

Grand kid being born cost me the non carnage ride

Great pics and vids Eric, Vic and gang!

Hated to kiss the festivities but I was riding a couch at my sons house in Lakeland awaiting our second grandchild. She was born Saturday morning at 6 am and everyone is fine. (now I have as many grand kids as Vic!)

My son with his two girls!

Also found all the ammo I needed! There's no shortage down there!

Tony, please send me the gpx file for Tunnel Springs. I've seen just about everything you showed me but that!

Here you go Rick:

N31 40.338` W087 13.352
Just put those lat/longs in you device and your good to go.
The cave was a no-go because of a seasonal(hunting) gate in place. It'll be gone after spring turkey season is over.
Also didn't visit the homemade car ferry,Burnt Corn, and Old Federal Road because of daylight slipping away.
Another day perhaps.

Thanks for the videos Eric and Vic!
They take a lot of time to edit/upload and post, so be assured we enjoy your efforts.
Rob, just keep that $2 bungee net.
You can buy me a cold drink and a cookie cake next time out.

Everyone else,,,I enjoyed the day riding with you all. A lot of nice chats added to that great day of riding.

Congratulations! Sorry you had to miss the ride, but I'm sure it was well worth it!

Is that what that huge mound of dirt covering the bridge was? Crazy!!!

Great Video, Vic! That was indeed a very unfortunate casualty.
