    Wow! What a great two day ride! Rode the long tracks.

    There are two detours:

    End of HNF 1 Track. HWY235 East of Medora.(Marked Road Closed???) East Fork bridge is open. Singer Ditch Bridge is closed. On HWY 235, take S County Road 460W (there is a photo op on this road), turn right on 500 S, right on 600 W, then left onto HWY 235.

    Early on HNF 3. County just started Monday tearing out this bridge. They said it will take a month! Middle Fork Deer Creek, between :620 & :622.
    On County Road 10, turn right on county road 81 (:619) to county road 5, turn left thru (:627) and continue the track.

    Hope you enjoy this ride as well as I had!

    Unfortunately I won’t be able to make this ride. I am bummed out but hope to make Loose Nut. Be careful guys/gals, I almost joined the woodsrat club (with Jerry and most recently Steve) this morning but those awesome KLR binders saved me yet again!...

    Doug an excellent question. Unfortunately the answer is no. If you happened to be in cabin #1 and married to Dirt Flirt it wouldn't matter but your not, so kick rocks....

    Thanks for putting together a great ride, Jerry. I had time to ride about halfway and had to head back to Indy. Thanks to the group of KTM haters that let me tag along. :D

    Had a great time this year. Weather was perfect and tracks were awesome. Heck, our cabin even came with a personal chef! Ready for the next one! 20191019_171844.jpg
