    Watched the vid, looks like a good time was had, Maestro! I take it y'all didn't see many hunters, I figured the woods would be crawlin with 'em.

    Also, good to see JP and Brad Gaines out there, I haven't ridden with either of those gazoonies in far too long.

    Good time riding with BZ today, he noticed something we've never seen out there before--a ginormous sinkhole. Naturally the pic doesn't do it justice, I'd need some elevation and a wide-angle lens to show how big it is:

    It ain't very deep but is almost as long as the Mystery Crater was--it's in a rectangular shape, more or less:

    It feeds into this ravine; it's just off F80, not far from Norman Riley Rd.

    Good times; let's do it again!:clap

    I know very little but if you change your original source (moved file - deleted file from source) then it will not be available since ADV does not actually store the photo.

    My best guess...

    Can't believe this thread fell off page 1, that's just unacceptable and I'm doing something about it!

    This is prime time for enjoying BW, no hunters and no heat; I'm hoping to ride out there every Saturday this month. We rode for the better part of the day last Sat. and I took a couple pics, I'll get around to posting 'em up eventually.

    BZ, you gonna make the BW/Conecuh ride on the 20th?:ear
