FL P, Sanpau & Rubadub Went Camping This Weekend



People came from far and wide (FTL, Stuart, Okeechobee) and met up near Sebring
for a ride over to the West Coast for lunch along the Manatee River.









Some people stayed there for more celebrating, we headed out for a search for a camping spot.
The weekend weather was great, so everyone and their ex-inlaws brothers next door neighbor went camping, the inn was full...

We ended up setting up camp at our old stomping grounds...



... along the Peace River



The bikes grazed nearby



A good weekend's worth of riding, 540 miles back and forth across the state.

Looks like fun camping, hopefully it was cooler than our summer outing to the Peace river.

My outing this weekend was to the Shawnee National Forest. The leaves have started to change, although the weather was a bit warm.

Plenty of gravel in S IL.


From the plains to the hills




Ever wonder how the farmers kids communicate




Dats some funny chit



Destination Glen O Jones Lake




Kelty Green River 6 Condo - Holds at least 10




Riding in the Shawnee NF








Ohio River




Mmmm Ribs on the smoker


Dutch oven breakfast WOW please note Dr

Looks like you are living the dream. And that is one hell of a durability test on a home built machine.
