    Now that the leaves are off of this it's a lot easier, still steep though!

    This was interesting, little saplings crisscrossed under what ever those green things are. Oh an a downed barb wire fence. There's a gap in it somewhere but I couldn't find it.

    Tried to find a more big bike friendly route, didn't happen.

    I used to live on a beach an after I moved away I realized how much I had taken it for granted. I try to make a conscious effort not to ever do that here.:D

    I can honestly say I spend more days riding in the mountains then hanging out on our beaches. Doubt Ill ever really miss the beach, now, not being able to ride up there - that's a different deal all together.

    I'm driving up Wednesday, if anybody's riding this weekend, LMK!

    The big question is will you see it on a new "bad ass dirt bike!:eek1"?:ear


    It was good to have you along. And I appreciate you following me around while I figured out what I want to do. :thumb (Gaston is really a lot faster than I am.) So are you going to come when we do this again?

    Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I won't be able to make it up your way until this summer but I will definitely be asking someone to show me around.
