    I didn’t get all the way to the river but from the maps it looks like maybe there was a bridge. Looks like a road going from the other side on the maps that might be fun too

    @ZLTFUL and I are gonna do an overnight camping run to Briggs Woods Park just south of Wester City on Friday night. I need a quick overnighter to prep for our trip in a couple of weeks through Wisconsin.

    If anyone is interested in camping or whatever, just swing by. You can’t reserve a camping spot at this point, but the person I spoke with at the campground said they are “never full” this time of year. It looks like a nice area.

    Turns out it does go all the way to the river. No sign of any bridge but there must have been one here at one point because you can see where the road carried on the other side.

    You must be no taller than an XT250 to get that far though

    I would definitely stop by as it’s only 10 miles from my house, but....I have to be in Elliot Iowa this evening.
    Have a great time.

    Rode today at the C180 MX track. Just south of Douds, Iowa.
    They had a lot of riders.
    Broke riders up into A, B, C, Vet. and mini.
    I was probable the oldest rider on the track.
    The jumps were just to big for me.
    Still rode 5 motos.

    And here I thought that was you!

    So was this a race, or an open practice day?

    I raced the Sprint Enduro at Mt Pleasant last Sunday and got 2nd in the 60+ class. They actually had 9 entered, which is a good turn out, since most of the old guys are dead...lol. And now there is a 70+ class which had one entrant...and he has one leg! So no excuses, you keep racing until you stop breathing.

    @ZLTFUL checking the sag on his camping suspension. {I think he needs a higher spring rate, myself.}

    Just had a really nice night camping at Briggs Woods Park just on the south side of Webster City. I even got a quick hike and nature shot in this morning before heading out.
