    Most everyone I know rides in the upper Talladega (Shoal Creek section) and there is no doubt why - fewer people, more interesting and challenging terrain and spectacular views and overlooks - it is the tallest part of our state here in Alabama. But after riding and camping last weekend in the SW section (first time in 30+ years) I wonder if anyone else has ridden or camped in here? I did hear what was a motorcycle or a quad in the distance, but other than that, just birds the way I like it. So, anyone know about this place?

    A small taste:

    Well thank you Twang, I just rode my motorcycle, turned a camera on, and started talking, like you were sitting there with me? Thanks for coming along!

    Hi Don. I had heard of Oakmulgee but had no idea what/where it was. I watched about 15 minutes of your video but don't have time right now for 49 minutes. Maybe later. I hope you are doing well.

    Yep, it's a long video. Thought maybe a few folks stuck inside/at work might dig it. Cool place to ride, lots of hills, a few creeks and birds and wind. Good to hear from you.
