    Friday pictures. I actually took more Friday than any of the other days, I've been struggling to get it down to a reasonable number.

    Off we go from around the cabin area.

    This park (Gold Head State Park) is pretty nice.
    [​IMG]

    Met at the front gate.
    [​IMG]

    Sfront didn't even have time to unpack his gear.
    [​IMG]

    Off we went looking for dirt.

    Is that two up?
    [​IMG]

    Maybe, but what about that water?
    [​IMG]

    Nope, two down!:rofl
    [​IMG]

    The last two times over this bridge someone ended up off the side, not this time.:clap
    [​IMG]

    Everyone made it this far, but some decided to call it quits after this.
    [​IMG]

    Waybill the group leader.
    [​IMG]

    On we go.
    [​IMG]

    What's next?
    [​IMG]

    Wait what is that? I thought Florida didn't have sand!
    [​IMG]

    Hay, any ideas? Now that's some deep stuff.:lol3
    [​IMG]

    There we go.
    [​IMG]

    But what's on top? Something I'll bet Kyle B wishes his weighed this much.
    [​IMG]

    He didn't have any problem getting up the sand hill either. Great seat for the show.
    [​IMG]

    Another great riding area and a nice place for a break.
    [​IMG]

    The dirt roads were in great shape.
    [​IMG]

    Next stop lunch.
    [​IMG]

    The chili was great.
    [​IMG]

    I think Cotton is around here somewhere. Is that him? No.
    [​IMG]

    How about the guy on the left? No
    [​IMG]

    There he is. Thanks Cotton for your hospitality and great chili.
    [​IMG]

    Hey Eloy, you may want to stay on the hard ground. Opps too late.:eek1
    [​IMG]

    Time to go. Load up rangers.
    [​IMG]

    They let anyone show up. If you missed it you missed a great day.:freaky
    [​IMG]

    That's all for now. I'll post Saturday and Sunday as I get them.

    For anyone interested, Home Depot has these great 20" Husky Waterproof bags at 64% discount for a total of $8.98 per bag.

    Can't shop for them online. Need to look at your local store but at the site you can see their in stock qty per store.

    I bought two after seeing of how great they work this past weekend where Rambo1 and I rode 300 miles under on and off rain and his clothe was perfectly dry.

    Bahahaha! When I saw this at work I broke out laughing. Actually this was one of three for the Mrs. and I. But this one was the wettest. Glad you captured the moment. We copied you pics and description to our Facebook account.

    Had a sweet time. Thanks for putting this event on. The A group was a blast. Wish we could have stayed for the Sunday ride but it was a long drive back to the panhandle.

    Us at lunch the next day (after 80+ miles riding);

    "Think I'm still drunk!"

    :freaky


    And, BTW, someone this weekend had asked about a beam conversion for a Trailtech 8" light. Can't remember who. But, here is the linky for the inmate that sells them:

    Saturday's ride had a great turn out.

    [​IMG]

    All these rider but no bikes? Oh wait, there they are.:evil
    [​IMG]

    All the riders broke up into groups.

    A group - these guys were fast and didn't even know there was sand on the ride.:huh
    B group - look for sand (this is what it was suppose to be).:cry
    C group - where is the dirt, not crazy about sand (forget it you are in Florida).:rofl
    Adventure group - big bike friendly and of course Urals.
    Street group - man Phil can ride.:evil

    The ride leaders got the groups together and gave a little more guidance.
    [​IMG]

    Now some of the victims at various points in the ride.

    Pete and Bill were talking about something. I couldn't hear them I think it was something about gas. Yep he ran out!

    After lunch the A group caught us and passed us in a flash. Yeah they went a lot farther is why they passed us.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the A group had a few outlaws too.

    This was a secret place only waybill new about. It is a great place, but the sand looked like a parking lot for some of the B group. This is were the A group left us in the dust. SAND

    I have no idea where he is going....:bmwrider

    Dinner was great that night. The night ride didn't happen, because the sky fell. Then after the sky got done falling Rich and Ken did the drawing for prizes. They even gave out two Klim items, a pair of paints and a coat + a 40% off coupon for each to buy the other half. They gave out a bunch of tee shirts and such too.
    [​IMG]

    Saturday turned out great. The groups were big, but it all worked. We had a couple get mixed up in the wrong group, but we have an idea for next time. Sunday's ride when I get it all together.
    Guns out!

    This is my second attempt. The first took about an hour and was pretty good.:cry
    In my opinion.
    Started with about 12 or 13 by lunch we were seven.
