    We all know how accurate long term weather forecast are but right now it's looking good for the 16th and 17th. I'd be interested in another Dual Sport ride:ricky:ricky

    Encountered a flooded road in Buck's Pocket State Park today. Sheriff vehicle to my right, and moments after taking photos, another appeared on the other side. No worries. No intentions of attempting a crossing. Easily, this was circumnavigated to the other side and up the road.

    Always like stopping along rivers. The Tennessee River is just as impressive as the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.

    I live over close to bucks pocket there usually ain’t no cops down there but we had a boy drive his Jeep across that bridge a couple weeks ago with the water up and the Jeep and kid are still missing

    I can recall the news but had lost track of when it occurred. Had no idea this was the location while I was there.

    I'm thinking of heading up into TN tomorrow on my KLR and wandering around. I have no real plan and expect to be lost half of the time. I expect this to be a mix of bumpy paved roads and dirt/gravel roads. If anyone is interested in joining me we can set a place and time to meet.

    I left well before you posted this. We met around 10:45 and were done around 2:15 when we split up and headed home. I"ll post a Ride Report later today.

    No worries, I saw it this morning and thought it referred to riding on Sunday, then later I noticed that you posted it Friday afternoon. Lol. Looks like y'all had a good ride.

    Similar to your ride today? If so, then yes.

    What would be a good time for you to meet in Taft, TN? I don't want to get there before 11 but later will work too.
