    New Years resolution : now that the new year is here I hereby threaten to get out and sling some dirt at least one day afternoon /eve during the week .

    From Orlando

    I have 3 options in front of me .

    Okechobee area - miles and miles of trails, doubletrack a few single or just make your own as needed . Soft sand, hard sand , mud, scrub , palmettos , hammocks, great riding No closing time ride into the night . ( have a camp there )

    Holipaw - lots o sugar , mud , sugar , mud, sugar, mud there is some good riding there but I havn't begun to explore it yet , am ready. ride into the darkenss and beyond if need be. ( have a lot and gate keys there )

    Croom - everyone knows Croom ... and no riding after 5 pm so that kinda rules that out

    of course there are some other options for plated bikes that I'm open to if need or desire be.

    I'm willing to travel an hour or 2 from Orlando to get some seat time so if anyone has other options close to them and doesn't mind someone tagging along .....I'm all ears

    I plan on ditching work early and heading to the dirt early to late afternoon and getting in an hour or 2 or ? of scrambling if anyone want's to join I'd be happy to have someone to ride with. I have room in the truck and or trailer if your aren't to far off .I like fast doubletracks and tight through the woods single and busting my own trails when the terrain allows, I have brown/gray hair and also like long walks on the beach :evil and smooth jazz (not) I'm going with or without and when I bleed out trailside alone in the darkness because you wussed out know that it will be on your head for not having your riding priorities in line :D

    So .......

    Been busy working on chit around the house, car maintenance, bike maintenance, family time, etc, etc, etc. :baldy

    Looks like I've got another weekend coming up of the same stuff.

    AH , the ever faithful Donkey .....perhaps the wind will carry my dying words of love for you and my final goodbye as I fade to black with no one to tell of my last struggle which will only be relayed by the marks of my twisted body as I drag myself trying to reach out for you from the distance.

    Am I the only one who can carve out a few hours before dark to go w HeadedNW? Hasn't any one else asked for permission yet, or are you just going to ask for forgiveness later?

    HNW, are you planning on doing this at least once a week through April? the summer? the rest of the year?

    I can go at least once a month, and one weekend too.
