Best Time of the Year

Temps climbing, and no hiding foliage to speak of. Not much bug issues, just a few on the shield tonite, and it's going to get better, not worse. Except for the bugs I got in a 60 mi loop tonite, did a snotty single track to see the vista of the cool Conowingo Dam from a vantage point only dirt adventurers can access. I love the riding this river offers, and right now you can see pretty good, even if it is brown everywhere. Tomorrow, thanks to some late nights this week fighting teething problems with a new truck rig at work, I am off! I will be heading to the New Castle DE area to visit, and from there hope to find my way around the C&D canal, do some eastern shore riding, see a new addition to our cool family, and generally enjoy moto sport. Jax, if you read this, can you impart some tips on posting pics- all I can pick up on is a required subscription to a photo hosting site- what do you use to string those great ride sequences together? THX, and BTW, I am really high here Check out the wires...

I was in Michaux tonight, I did not ride the bike though. We ran 10.4 miles in the dark with only the moonlight shining on the trail. There was a group of mountain bikers out too but they had lights.
Gotta love Michaux!

Yeah, I'll bet that was a nice moonlight ride. Great way to say good riddance to 'ol man winter.
I wanted to get out earlier yesterday, but was dealing with an upset system in the am, didn't want to risk being far from modern indoor plumbing Felt better by 10am, so I headed for New Castle DE for a brief visit, down to the civil war era Fort Delaware. (rebels POW'd there were probably wondering where all the gators and cottonmouths were...and what's with these ducks?) I did some guesswork, and some zig-zag, and got on the C&D canal dirt at the first legal entrance I could find. Went back east as far as made sense with a laden bike, and explored from there (Delaware City) to Chesapeake City, I think about 40 mi, if one went in a straight shot. Maybe less, I was having too much fun with 60 mph feet-up slides and spectacular visuals to check mileage. There was lots of parallel roads, two track 'unkept' roads, and non-gated or posted roadish looking trails to check out. I saw no LEOs, but I was having so much fun, I was considering turning myself in. I'll go back and ride the other side soon. Here is the first shot, till I figure out how to get the full sequence to post.

Motojunky and myself made it up there on Sunday. Pretty nice area and the fire roads are fun to ride, just wish there was more of an off-road option in the area.

Nice OVO! Great to see folks getting out there.
Did you make it to Ridge?

I think we're gonna have to buy SoPaRider a camera.... He goes up there a lot!

Jax, Not sure we made it to quite a few roads both north and south of Rt. 30.

Here is a little clip from the ride..

Were you guys parked in the lot at the corner of 30 and 233? Three of us were pulling out onto 30 and the bikes in the photo look like the two we saw being loaded up.

I'll keep an eye out for you guys. We are up there quite often although usually through the week in the evenings. Next time you are there stop at the ranger station, they have a great forest map that will get you around.

Love the video OvO!... You must have been on Ridge road... you came across the Brady Bunch on Hogshead rd which is off ridge.

They were at this overlook:

He has one, or at least it looks like a camera...good thing the forest ranger that pulled up, when we were on the boat launch where we shouldn't have parked, didn't do a luggage search! I almost made a run for it when the ranger asked if the backpack SPR had leaned against the park info sign post 40 ft away was ours, and Jeff said "why, do you think it contains explosives?" That was priceless.
Jack, the Low Country photos are awesome. What route did you take getting down there? I can't wait!

Yeah I had my GPS with me, but we still would have liked an larger view of the layout. That was our first time up there and we just went where we felt and just to see what was at the other end. The only problem I had was that we always found an end and it found way to early...LOL
