    We just came back from Turner River Rd. It is unpaved, sorte of gravel road, fun but ok. We went all the way to Bear Campground. Later, a permit is needed, that's mean no bike allowed.

    I'm open for an invitation to visit Holley land any coming week-end. Let me know who can be a good guide.

    That place must be under water. Went there ones with my kids on quads and couldn't go too far in because that is some deep mud out there, can't imagine what it will be with my pig. I got a spot around the airport.
    I'll PM you.

    The levees are alway passable but once you're off them.......:eek1 70 miles is not a whole lot of range so an extra couple gallons are needed for Holey Lands and the Reservation area beyond...
    I am out for the next couple weekends..:cry

    Yeah goat racer. Some guy here at work said he saw a national geographic program and some guys where suiting up in leathers , next thing you know they line up and run to their goats . He though it was a road race.
    He just made that crap up because they where talking about how long each had been riding for. The guy that was born here was telling the other guy from ST Thomas there was no bikes back then in the island only goats.
    So he stayed, goat racer.:rofl

    I'll try to meet you out there sunday.
