Well one thing I vowed during this trip is to start spending a little more time with maps before during and after a weekend of riding like this. I really need to start keeping and organizing files of tracks and routes.

On Friday Mike, Carl, Gary and I headed out on the northern part of the VT dual sport loop that someone had posted a few years back. If I get a chance I will clean up the file and post it somewhere if I can figure out how.

Not far into the first road we ran across this large tree in the road but with a little effort we made just enough of a hole to slip by





We found lots of great roads and trails to run just outside of camp...





some were not quite so big bike friendly though...Great job out there though Gary


Seem's every time poor Gary rides with he three of us he breaks something on one of his bikes I think this time the skid plate was the weak spot..

the first few hours of riding was more 2 track and technical type roads, the latter part of the day was a lot of faster dirt roads..great views though



I think this shameless self shot was after Gary decided to split off with a group of riders doing a little less aggressive type roads





all in all a great day of riding

more later...

Washed out road GoodOlGuzzi, MZCountryBoy and I ran into on Friday. We ended up manhandling MZ's GS through in a spot upstream of this. No pics of that, unfortunately. We needed another guy to handle the camera work.


Was this road in Danville by any chance? It looks familiar.

Cool2 Old ways...

This year was done the old way...paper map and bikes without computers on board. It's a lost art, and certainly fun to do. Mike and I were riding our old BMW airheads. John was riding with us on his GS Adventure. This was good for the one time we were looking for Vermont route 116; John's GPS unit was a useful tool. Other than that, we were all paper all weekend.

Laugh good times!

Thanks for an awesome Cromag, Shrineclown & everyone! That's a heck of a playground you've got!

Some vid of my ride up Fri, towing the Mule: http://youtu.be/woTLe5wEmRw

Sat was a blast doing the Barnard Loop. Awesome BBQ (please bring more chili next year)!

Sun was awesome, hitting Harpoon for lunch & back down the Croydon (couldn't resist the dirty call).
