    JasonK94Z, I will join you all for this route. What day and time will you be leaving the lodge? I will be in Joplin, MO overnight on Thursday, thus if the ride is Friday early, will have to know when to roll out of Joplin. On an 09 KLX 250 with the "cross of questioning" on my side plate, symbol used on my posts. Blue Oyster Cult fan ya know, currently Alice in Chains to be up to date, so will have to put their logo on my other side plate . . .

    Sounds good! We will be doing the big ride on Saturday. We won't be arriving to White Rock until maybe 2pm Friday. Just look for 2 guys in a silver Honda Ridgeline with 2 KLR's int he back from kansas. We are staying in the lodge.

    upon further inspection, I didnt see where I had put the by pass track up for Lee Creek and Pannell road..here it is now

    This starts at Old Cross Rd and hwy 220 and makes a loop to Natural Dam on hwy 59.

    If you go south on hwy 220, it is all paved and is abt 12-13 miles to Natural Dam..

    If you go north and loop up and back around, it is abt 17 miles of dirt and you come out on hwy 59 just north of Natural Dam

    So no matter which way you go, follow this track and it will keep you out of Lee Creek and off Pannell road..very big bike friendly!

    Thanks! I will use it and route it for Pannell rd too. I'll keep the bypass also in case it starts looking bad. I'll walk the bike through Pannell if i have too :lol3 One of the guys that taught me how to ride offroad last summer actually has taken his BMW GS1000 down pannell and says its a walk in the park. Of course, he says everything is a walk in the park and I end up eating dirt and getting a workout picking my bike up off the ground. he makes it look like a casual ride.

    I'm prolly gonna follow you local yokals around. I like trouble, but not too much. I'd like to go up whoop and see if upping my fork oil to 15W will keep Pigboat from bottoming out when I land:D

    We have had questions as to how best get to the mountain so here are five suggested routes. The easiest and most vehicle friendly is the one coming in from I-40. If you are camping at Shores Lake this is the one you want to take as it is paved to the lake but not beyond.
