    Had lunch at E-town Thursday and did some riding around in Hardin, Pope, and Saline counties with a buddy. About 3 months back he and his wife bought a small house in Rosiclare as a get-away...but he spends most of his time there now.

    We spotted this while eating:

    Stopped for a chat at Glen O. Jones lake before parting ways.

    Will do. Also seen on a earlier post, of those "performance awards" the LEO's were giving out for those "Road Close" signs! Do they not know that is only a suggestion for us motorcycles riders??????

    Report:
    Thebes Rd just south of the railroad overpass. About 400 ft of trees & muck is reason that road is closed.
    Wilderness Retreat Road. Road to left, (before Lingle Creek Road). No trespassing sign facing road on right next to field. There is no signage where this road comes back out at Silica Hill Rd. Verdict, I road it through and back!
    Pine Hills Road just north of McGee Hill is gated for rain sheet erosion.
    Railroad Crossing on Muddy Levee Rd west of Larue RD Closed. (does railroad need a reason?) Larue road bypass has awesome cliffs.
    Grand Tower swinging "NG" pipe bridge loop has been gated sometime since 2014 LN.
    East Jacob Rd. SW of Jacob, narrow strip of the crown of the road is now exposed to travel, maybe 4" of water @ crown was the deepest.

    Water crossings in general are dry.
    There was a "rattler" laying across the lane leading back to the lake off of Bean Ridge Road.

    I’ll be there tomorrow with the kids. It is a tradition for us, Friday mornings are so nice at the Threshermans and the last day before school starts.

    I hope to go back for the pull tomorrow night.

    No getting to the confluence today. Assume it had been this way for 5-6 months.

    Can't believe you're letting a couple of little gates stop you.
