    Which raises the question, do we want to add a 2nd one to the calender?

    Course then we'd have to call it the Bipolar Bear. :D

    Didn't get any pictures until Lunch.

    There were bikes all over the place.
    [​IMG]

    My group all parked together.
    [​IMG]

    And the Adventure B group had a security system with them.

    Even seen a Wanker towing service.

    The trails were beautiful, but I never got any pictures since I was leading. I was sweep on Sunday so got a lot more of the actual ride.

    Sunday was a small group and we just took it easy. It wasn't long until he pavement ended.

    It was a very manageable group and everyone stayed together.

    The dirt roads were not bad. There were some that were dusty, but not too many. We had mostly bigger bikes on this ride.

    Beautiful area. We went though a lot of places like this.

    Best part of one of Bill's rides, we stop for lunch. :freaky
    [​IMG]

    We had three go back from lunch, but had two join us.

    It was a nice ride and we got back shortly after 3pm. Great event. Already thinking about next year.

    Saturday pics...

    Some of my peers volunteered me to lead a ride following the small bike "A" route. :rofl at least for 50 miles... give or take

    No worries on my end as long as you FFs don't mind turning around a dozen times because I followed the wrong track. :lol3

    Off we left with 13 in tow. The tracks started off of the rear entrance to the park. Once there, we found out the back gate was closed. No problem, a rider that was part of our group knew the combo to the back gate lock. :clap

    After riding for about an hour, we were going through one of the singletrack/muddy portions and our group grew from 13 to 24. WTF? :scratch

    It was the "A" group that we ran into. :lol3 We took off as part of a 24 bike group but quickly found out a group that large wasn't going to work so... about 9 of us stayed back and let the "A" group take a 30 minute head start.

    Well, too much dialogue... here are some pics...

    Lunch at Salt Springs was great. :clap We ate at the Deli and the Bacon Cheeseburger was... :tb

    At the parking lot...

    Chuckleheadery ensued at the "Hills of Interlachen" ...

    "Hunter" guy came out of the woods after we had been there for about 30 minutes and informed us that we were trespassing and asked if he could see my ID. :lol3

    Chucklehead response... sorry, no ID. :dunno

    One of the fellas in our group said... where are the "No Trespassing" signs?

    "Hunter" guy... well, people tear them down all the time.

    My response... HTF are we supposed to know we're trespassing?

    No witty response from "Hunter" guy. Besides... WTF are you hunting at 3:00PM? :scratch

    "Hunter" guy says... people have been stealing tree stands in the area lately.

    No shit! I'm sure the peeps stealing the tree stands are on dual sport bikes. :lol3

    Oh well, we excused ourselves but not until "Hunter" guy took a pic of my plate. :asshat

    We continued on the tracks to get back to camp until one of the 2-smoke bikes in our group ran out of gas. No worries though. There was extra gas and oil. We made it back without incident around 4ish.

    A few pics around the fire after Saturday night dinner shenanigans...

    Had a great time, really appreciate everybody responsible for making it happen.
    Wondering if anybody snapped a picture of the Lab riding shotgun on the hack? If so, can you post it up so i can share with the wife.
    Seeing him riding with his goggles was just cool and a high spot of the morning.
    We had a Lab for 14 years and that brought back some good memories.

    Bill did a great job on our Friday ride, herding the orange cats

    Saturday we were in a small spirited group. Accidently picked up two from the wanker group when we crossed paths in the woods.

    [​IMG]

    Glad to have our Savanah racer in the group!
