    Mark, you're not the only one riding in circles.

    The low water bridge across Shoal creek was 10ft under yesterday. This turning around stuff is getting old. I'm going to try for higher ground next week. How's flooding in the Shawnee forest? Seems the higher areas would drain out fast.

    Sometimes I find the gates open, other times I just ride around them. There are quite a few places to ride and I always find something new and interesting. Do you have any other riding spots locally?

    Thats good to hear. Don't know of any good riding spots nearby. Just some old rail road lines and dead end gravel/dirt roads here and there.

    Hey Chain, I'll try posting a few pics in your Chaingolian ride report thread
    if the dialup connection doesn't give out.
