    Not sure who this is but snapped a photo. He hit a submerged rock at the last second and went all crazy legs. Couldn’t believe he saved it. I would have crashed. Lol

    At the top of knobby section 1. It was a battle! I did get to follow @soupbill up the rocky climb. He always picks the best lines

    Great meeting you Steve and heal up fast. It was also nice meeting and riding with new folks, Mike, Raaf, Dave, and John (I have no idea what your names are on here, sorry!). Fantastic tracks and I will be back.

    Things were a bit hectic for us prior to leaving. Neither bike would start and one had lost all charge in a couple days. Should have double checked prior to.. But I couldn’t let all of Loose Nuts planning go to waste. So we loaded up the Jeep and hit the points of interest we could Saturday. And did the Sunday AM and most of the PM route. Awesome views for our first time in eastern Kentucky. Met a couple people and as always, love waking up to the sound of bikes leaving the campground.

    Also, the gentleman from Iowa we met at a creek crossing. The one we were just sitting at as you so graciously called us out for pitter pattering about, I have your crossing video if you would like it for any reason lol.
    Again, great people, awesome community. See y’all next year

    Well Loose Nut (wife and crew) you amaze me with your ability to match and/or exceed previous Loose Nut rides. Thank you Steve and Shanta and @RedBirdStation and @cRAsH a lot for the AWESOME tracks, beans, cobbler and fish. Your time and treasure to put this ride on doesn't go unnoticed and is so so much appreciated. Also, besides the riding and great "fixins" it is good to commune with likeminded motorcycle folks!

    As you will see by the poor quality of this video, my GoPro was on its last breath, and finally did go belly up on the ride - RIP (and good riddance)…

    Here’s me eating some dirt too! May or may not have said “F*** YEAH” right after”... wish I was back in KY already!
