    I'm fine with warm and wet just not cold and wet.
    It's active but if you liked that do a open house tour at muscatatuck down the road. If they do building tours during it you may get a creepy vibe.

    Warn us? I took that as a recommendation. Been disappointed every summer time trip that there wasn't much water in the creeks. We couldn't have asked for a better amount of rain on Thursday night. Just enough to wet the gravel roads so it wasn't too dusty and give us a little bit in the creeks......that made them fun to cross without being too overwhelming challenging

    Don't worry I apparently can run pretty fast in riding boots

    I agree water crossings were great, and no dust, I was looking at my bike and riding gear never came home this clean before!!!! :D

    So much has already been said about this fabulous weekend that it's difficult to add anything meaningful except, "Thank you Mr. & Mrs. LooseNuts, we deeply appreciate your organization and generosity." Here are a few images which I'll remember until the next time. (That's BackRoadNomad riding away in the mist.)

    Steve, thanks for posting the boat/bridge in the morning foggy sunrise on the Ohio. Beautiful! I regret not stopping for that pic, but now I have it. Thanks!

    BTW, Does anybody have the video of the two 690's crossing the very fast flowing creek with the taped off area on the far bank (Knobby3)? There was a big group there trying to decide if they wanted to make the plunge, said they were waiting for the 690's to show up and cross, which we obligingly did. I got my upsteam side boot wet on that one, luckily it was near the end of Saturday's ride.

    Yes, Jefferson Proving Ground gave me the Walking Dead feel. Then thought of all the "special" ordinance that was tested there. Regardless, it was very cool to have gone through there.

    Thanks so much to Loosenut & everyone involved with helping make this a fantastic ride! Also would like to thank everyone that is willing & able to post all the great pics & videos. Last but not least,thanks to the crew I ride with, without them I wouldn't be doing the kind of riding that is now my favorite. Hope to see everyone at Loosenut 2016.

    So, Mr Bones, your video cannot be watched in Singapore. We don't know why. It could be copyright on the music ... or gratuitous water crossings, gravel, rocks and trees!?!
