    It was brought up on another thread that we need a place to post rides and/or events taking place, it doesn't have to be an organized deal...it could just be "I have some spare time this afternoon I'm riding to _____ if anyone wants to go?" :ear

    I don't care it could even be I got to run to the grocery and I need to get out of the house so I'm going to the grocery in the next county! (I know you've all had days like that)

    :dealPost it up even if its a trail ride, weekend ride, road, dirt, dual sport, camping, or even "I'm driving across country with business and I can't give you any perks but if you want to tag along and see the country (and pay your own way) your welcome to come along!"
    Sometimes you want to ride alone...sometimes you just want a buddy!:freakyThis is for that time!

    Have I made it clear? Anything at all that you wouldn't mind if someone or no-one shows up for!

    Cool chart.
    Not counting that negative spike, I read about a 15 ft difference
    from last 2 years.
    Was told by someone in the know that,
    the water levels are strictly controlled with chart they go by
    day by day. Recent rain must of thrown em off schedule.

    xr650r,anybody is welcome.

    Stu,if your gonna come down around 305 out of
    olive branch(nice country ride) I'll just meet up with ya in independence ms. If your gonna highway it I'll just meet ya at the lake
    (highway bad for knobbies,make many replacement:D )

    Most everything's flooded. Could do a lap around the HS forest if the rain
    ever stops.

    Considering the rain, and the end-of-semester on the horizon overwhelming me with stuff to do, I'll have to pass on tomorrow.

    I couldn't pin down my in-town in-laws on their schedule today to see if I had time to go so I didn't bother loading the bike in my truck before work. So I guess I'm out. unless the boss walks in now and sends me home. (which could be bad cause it'd mean I'm fired)

    I think this thread has some good potential! I will be checking it regularly.

    Thinking about a dual sport/geocaching ride up around Natchez Trace state park on Sunday. Some pretty good gravel roads in the park and some cool looking geo's between there and the TN river.

    Thanks for the offer...I will go but I have to leave there to be back late afternoon. So I'll just drive separate so I don't have to inconvenience anyone if I'm leaving before anyone else!

    Tony...I'm writing you a PM right now.

    Saturday, 10/31. I've gotta take my 1150GS over to BMW of Little Rock.

    1) Anyone want to ride along? I've got to be there @ 9a for an appointment but will undoubtably take the small fun roads home.

    2) Anyone need anything? I've got 2 Jesse's and a flat rear section where I've tied down some pretty big stuff.
