    We absolutely are lucky here! Thank you!

    I'll send you a link to any other shots I have of you. Sorry I had to bail on the campsite - that tent didn't sound like fun in those temps! Crazy running into you at the gas station on the way! Good riding with you!

    Eight years of Loose Nut Dual Sport Rides and the only disappointment was not finishing this year's tracks! Thanks LooseNut, Mrs. LN, Raaf, RoadDad, Kenny, everyone else that scouted routes and tracks, Kaveman for loaning me a tube, and Donnie, Ditch, and Steinbaker for helping me change multiple rear tubes, and my wife for coming to Daugherty road with my pickup. It was a great adventure scraping ice off of my seat for yet another brisk Loose Nut morning. It was also a great adventure trying to keep up with KTMs and Beta's on all of the incredible knobbie sections riding a 17 year old, poorly sprung, underpowered Dizzer with a 100# pack on the back. The bike went down several times but I managed to stay standing almost every time. I got my last flat tire just shy of "KY Creek Xing 27 Deep" right after we chose to turn around because of the fleeting daylight. I chose to ride on it out of the woods and across the previous creeks to where a truck could reasonably reach. Lastly, thanks to the two gentlemen lost on Daugherty Road looking for a camp spot in a bumper-less 2003 Eclipse with Cali tags, a loud pit-bull, and no exhaust. They spotted me 4 Police-issue Detainee Zip-ties that allowed me to ride the bike up the ramp, into the truck, and ultimately into my basement for future repair. I'll get her all fixed up this winter with a new rim strip, tube, beadlock, and tire for next year's adventures.

    I finally made some time to put the videos together that I took on this Epic ride. All of the videos are from Saturdays tracks and most are from the Awesome Knobby sections. We came back to Saturdays tracks on Sunday to do more of the Knobby sections we missed.

    Saturday, before lunch.


    Saturday, after lunch 1.


    Saturday, after lunch 2.
