    I'm trying to organize a Last Ride. Will Oklahoma winter weather permit?

    Ok, so check this out. We could start from Natural Falls State Park in West Siloam Springs, Ok and turn to the backroads. There is a low water slab across the Illinois River and then ride into Chewey for a snack break at the Chewey Store. From there, follow the river south to Combs Bridge, then around Sparrowhawk and Bathtub Falls to Pumpkin Hollow Road and out to Briggs. Then into Tahlequah to B & J Restaurant to end the ride and say farewells.

    This is mostly gravel road and VERY scenic backroads. We might have to hire a farmer with a tractor and flatbed depending on the depth of the water that day. <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    I'd be down for that, schedule permitting. My dad might be interested, he also rides a klr, but he is a weenie and doesn't like cold. Even though he has heated gear :loco

    A suprise to me too A_G, the cashier was my insurance agent a few years ago. Do you have a bike you can ride with us on the Last day of the year ride?

    I had to turn back in Tampico. Work sucks! But it was great while it lasted.
    I watched the video of the Zombie ride. Looks like fun and challenging too.
    I'm trying to organize a Last Day of the Year ride from Natural Falls south along the river to Tahlequah if your up to it. All back roads.:ricky

    Sounds good. Last Ride of course is December 31, this year its a monday.

    Not sure about the low water crossing of the Illinois. If you want to ride up there and check it out we can. I did confirm with the Natural Falls park and they welcomed for us to start the ride there. All are welcome, we just having fun.:clap

    Perhaps if we put the Last Ride into its own thread we might get more participation?

    I remember driving across that low water crossing years ago while doing some surveying in the area. We thought it was cool so we took pic's. I'll have to see if I can dig them up. It was back in the pre-digital days.

    Are the falls flowing at Natural Falls? It's been kinda dry this year. We had an invite to go last weekend but we had the kids and couldn't make it.
