    Stay safe and good luck to all through this storm.

    The Pensacola folks are having the Turkey Trot rally next weekend for any interested.

    Well that was a little bit exciting! Sat on back porch in winds till eye passed over about 12:30. Growing up in Biloxi I've been in several hurricanes in my life. Betsy Camille etc. But This was my second eye. First eye was in Elena in 85, that one was so cool since it was a daytime eye. Perfect blue circle in sky. Crazy part of that was all the seagulls flying around in eye!
    This one was kind of a dud!
    Which really was good, don't get me wrong, hurricanes are bad we lost homes in Camille and Katrina. So I guess I should be happy this one was a dud.

    We are getting hit pretty hard at the moment. I'm in south Mobile co on Fowl River. Wind gusts are still pretty strong. Hope everyone is staying safe.

    No damage to report here. We have been lucky all year.

    LOL yup wife and I laugh constantly at his antics and drama!

    No damage here either, just sticks and leaves everywhere.

    So now back to October ride plans, I may make it to AR to ride with those MS boys at Don't Fall 17 after all!
    Will know later this week once I check workload.

    Missed going last year. That is an excellent group of folks and riding area. Need to start working on excuses to get up there end of this month.

    I'll be working nights all weekend. Might try to get up early and check it out before I go to work.

    On another note. Saw a guy on GS 800 yesterday in Ocean Springs wearing an AMA national Trials T-shirt. Was that any of ya'll?

    Hey fellow riders from the lower land mass. I’ve been a member on the forum a few years but don’t post much. Nothing much to say I guess but love to read the forums.

    I live in Gulfport and currently ride a wee strom. I usually head north and ride Desoto and points beyond. I’m a 63 year old fart that don’t mind riding slow, fast, or halfast. Pavement or dirt, it’s all fun.

    I’ve got a semi flexible schedule (self employed) so a weekday morning is sometimes more doable than a weekend. Would love to meet up with some of you guys sometime and take a ride. I’ve been riding for many years so I’m not a noob. Hollar at me sometime. The name is Jeff

    Very nice photo-documentation! My favorite has to be that Norton Commando 750. I was droning on the interstate to Houston when all that was going on.

    Hope that you do not mind me interloping on this thread, but I'm looking for someone to trail ride with in the Southwest to South Central part of Mississippi.
    I'm from the Baton Rouge area but do a good bit of my riding from there to Natchez, Brookhaven, or McComb. I'll venture much further for a good ride. Just rode around Fort Adams/Pecan Grove today and posted about it on my initial post for the Louisiana region.

    Is anybody else off on Mondays?
    I'm thinking of heading over to Bethel trails tomorrow , and was wondering if anybody might be interested in meeting up.

    Sounds like fun but I'll have to pass - tried some unpaved stuff yesterday and a Yamaha XTZ750 on TKC70 tires does not like wet mud at all. (Also a bit too far south to sneak off to. :-)
