I'm done in Florida, starting home tomorrow.
May do it all in one day, but I'll probably stop somewhere and sleep.

Gonna be off 2 or 3 weeks maybe

Lets ride!


p.s. Change them tires, they will kill ya on dirt.

The dirty edition.

Took a ride today, had some roads in mind that I have not been down before.
72 South to Parsons, Hambelton and Hendricks.
Then onto Jenningston Rd.
Then came to this sign


And took a break to think about what road I should take,




So, I took the one less traveled

This road less traveled got steeper and rougher.
I'm thinking this is the Granville Bad Road


This was fun for a few miles, would have liked to got more pictures but it was too steep to stop.
This passed a few abandoned houses and farms, but then came to an (open) gate and a No Trespassing sign.

So I turned around and back down the hill I went.
At the bottom, made a left and shortly came to the Dry Fork river. No bridge, but a low water ford.
Sadly, the water was about 5 feet deep. Having forgotten my add on pontoon I turned around. Again.

Back up the way I came, and continued on the Jenningston Road.

Thru Sully (have to check out Sully Rd sometime) and down to 33 East.
Nothing picture worthy for a bit. Until I got here.


continued down Sugarlands, then onto Close Mtn Rd.






I've been thru here a lot, one of my favorite rides.

Down into Horseshoe. This poor thing has been here for years, maybe I should rescue it.


Up Hile Run Rd, and over another mountain.


Nice old farm here, with a great view.





Just a few years ago there was someone living in this house. Sad to see all these farms and homes empty.


Top notch facilities too.

Off of Hile, onto Location Road and onto Stemple Ridge.
Turn onto Snake Rd









One last glamor shot, then down Snake Rd to Rt 50 and back to the house.

Yep, it was a good ride. About 140 miles total, could have used more dirt.
Looking in my Gazeteer at some of the roads I went by today.
This could turn into a multi day thing, and you would still be in WV.

Beautiful weather, perfect temps, great roads.
Needed only boobies and beer to be perfect, except I don't drink and ride and a woman would have wanted to talk to me.
(and not ride the bad roads) So we'll call it good.

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 5

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same, 10

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back. 15

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost

Think I should get this as a tattoo.

My $170 point and shoot. Casio Exilim, set at 2MB so it doesn't eat up a lot of bandwidth.

If you figure it out, let me know.
Because I'm still not sure

I don't have a GPS on my bike, and I just sort of ride by intuition.

Pick a general direction, after that I just take random lefts or rights, get lost and then have a good time finding my way home.
