been wanting to take a multi day float/camp/fish trip for years, just can never get my schedule right.

Those are my favorite kind of routes. It kind of reminded me of this dead-end road Gus and I found (then Doc and Mike and I went down again). Burr Ridge Rd, CR 1016. By the end it was just a 4-wheel trail that appeared to wander north, not back to CR 75 like we hoped. Arkwizard likely has less-than-fond memories of the dead-end.


I don't mind back-tracking new roads at all, as riding them reverse is an entirely different deal. Warloop up is not Warloop down!

Ride on, blinkie !

Those dead end roads drive me nuts, I usually REALLY want to see where (or if) the trail comes out somewhere after investing the time riding it. I can think of one time in the Jeep with the famdamily we invested an hour or so on a MO trail in spiders and heat only to find it dwindled away, and the first week my buddy and I bought DRZ's and were new to dual sporting. We rode to Cove Creek, took the first trail we found, it got gnarlier and gnarlier until we could go no more. Tried to turn around and go up the steep muddy hill we went down, no go with the stock tires! We walked out.

Sometimes that trail will come out though and make an epic adventure!

So that taught me to not be "too" brave if I ride alone, it's always better to have a buddy if you're gonna really explore.

I agree. There's been a coupla times where my "adventure" mindset was overwhelmed by stupid. I look at dual sporting like scuba diving, use the buddy system. There's nothing like looking around you on some lost, lonesome dirt road on the back side of nowhere and thinking "What would I do..."

Enough of that Besides I was only trying to show some trail manners. That blinker might have been clicked 3 times in the previous 6000 miles.

Ted's lesson. Ride with someone else so you have a talking buddy for the Walk Out ehh?

Or Trailwings + Mud = bad things.

Ride with Ted for a month or two. He knows how to push start those things.
