    Sorry, change of plans. Have a soccer game to watch on Sunday, and going North on Sat for a street ride. Did sneak out for a little ride today... Looks like someone's camp fire got out of control by the Mullica River.

    Was planning on it, and had a cabin lined up, but couldn't get any of my buddies to commit. So, cancelled the reservation. Great event, though!

    Want some company? Where are you going to start? Time?
    I love riding with newbies. For at least one session, I'm usually at least a little better then one of the riders! :lol2

    I know the Stoney Fork water crossing VERY well........I did the STPR Car Rally for more than a decade and the
    water crossing was at the end of the first stage (it comes up really quickly); I went back to that area last year
    and re-ran several of the stages on my DRZ - "to bring back the memories"; The crossing is about 2 miles
    up the road from the Stoney Fork Campground.

    The water crossing was really easy and not too deep;


    I'll be in that area this week-end in Bald Eagle SF - they have a tons of legal Dual Sport trail - which include knarly
    single track (if that is your thing).

    I would highly recommend this area for anyone who enjoys riding on gravel roads; There are hundreds of miles of
    legal riding - catering to a wide variety of riders.

    Seems like a blast Bill. Looks like more stable terrain than the beach we rode through on memorial day. That was my first outing on the tenere and its gonna take a little time to become secure in the sand. I would like to join you saturday if you dont mind an extra machine. I'd like to get to know the pines.

    Sure. The guy I'm taking wants to get his dirt wings before an event in the Finger Lakes. If I run him through deep sand, he'll probably give up on dirt. As soon as I get him nailed down on an arrival time, I'll let you know here.
