    Rusty you have to look at this way; if you didn't try the crossing you would still be wondering if you could of made it across and it would be on your mind till the next SBR, I think you would of made it on the ST.

    It was good riding with you again this year, maybe next year I'll lead more and you can just follow and enjoy the ride.

    Rusty, you saved the rest of us from trying it and that's all that mattered to me buddy! After seeing you go down I said to John that $4 ferry ride is lookin pretty good right now....lol See you saved us from trashing our bikes and sitting on the riverbanks enjoying the day wasn't so bad for me at all:) I love to sit in the sun, just wish I would have had my swimsuit on underneath....maybe next time!:1drink

    So I missed this creek crossing and the Ferry, my GPS brought us out on the other side of the Ferry, was this the Ashly Creek part?

    Maybe you should get the upgrade kit for that GPS of yours, it seems to have a mind of it's own!!!!!!!!:rofl

    A "sooner" SB could be arranged by anyone who knows a specific area, it's just the GPS thang that would have me stumped!:huh

    Any more input into arranging another tour somewhere in Mizzoo/N Arkansas???????:ear

    Yes Jim, you cross Akers ferry to get to Ashley Creek.
    South on Hwy K to Ashley Cr Rd, hang a left

    If you have a tracks capable gps, Ashley creek is a separate track from the rest of the SBR tracks.

    When I got to the ferry I just loaded up the Ashley Cr portion and off you go!
    This track brings you past Bo's Hollow and up through Montauk St Park

    Tami we all wished you had your swimsuit on also while you were sitting on the side of the river. You think them drunk hillbilly were watching you in your riding gear, just thank how much they would be watching if you had it on.

    I guess my approach of not talking about it would make it go away is not working here. Keith your pretty cute for a chubby_guy but your ugly on the inside too.:d. I liked you rr but i didn't think that the water crossing was quite as dramatic as you described it. And a word to rusty's brother, the only reason you were invited to the ride was rusty wanted to ride both his bikes________:lol3__________

    I got it now roll over the photo you want to paste to your RR. Left click the IMage Code bar that pops up, it will auto copy, open you ADV window your posting in and paste where you want the image. EASY PEASY!

    Oh you will just see your code in your text box as you compose your post. Until you actually post it. I usually hit enter twice after each line of code before I start typing or post a new image.

    You want it like this right?

    [​IMG]

    You want the "album" page in PB, The one that shows all the small photo's in the album. Then roll over the photo you want, a box with 4 choices appears below the photo, left click the last choice, "imgage code", It will auto copy, then past it to where you want it in your ride report.
