    great report...I ain't never seen nothin' like that up here in new england.
    We're planning on a northern tet ride this spring, but won't make it down that far. I don't know how you can ride into that stuff. I 'd never trust that much water.

    We didn't trust the water either, but there was no way around most of it. There was some holes, but they were small enough that the front wheel was coming out before the back wheel went in, so no problem with drowning the bikes.

    I enjoy your reports!

    Sorry I won't be able to make Treemans ride next weekend.
    I'd sure like to talk to you about the TET and what your planning next.

    I saw that you're on call this weekend. I'm sure you gonna miss a good time.

    Hell, I never know what our plans are 'til the day or so before we leave. our trips revolve around Larry's work schedule.

    Glad you enjoyed the ride - but MAN - I never saw that much water when I laid it out!!!!

    Treeman gave me the eastern half of the Florida section, the rest I scoped out on my own.

    You were riding Version 3, I made a number of changes in western Florida (and all over) when BlueLghtng and I went through in April 2012. They are included in Version 4 along with extensions to Tybee Island and Tellico Plains.

    I did run into pretty deep water in the section just north of Tate's Hell one time... the roads were causeways through ponds of water... way neat!

    You did a good job of laying it out.
    we rode the Alabama section from south to north last spring, then all of florida and up to Screven Ga in August and then Screven up and over to Talladega NF in November. The only improvement I would suggest is putting Treeman's Pine Mountain route (I helped build that one)
    in place of the lower Alabama section.

    Still a GREAT route as is

    I checked around and found TreeMan's Pine Mountain route.

    Next time I'm down that way I'll run it and check it out to see if it's suitable for what I'm doing.
