@eemsreno yes with the thought that I need more time then I have to do it. So for right now it is something to read about and log advice, locations and pictures for inspiration. I have been riding for a few years now and hit offroad as often as I can. Most of it solo due to my wacky schedule. You are right it is way better with a couple buddies and I would take you advice and look for a couple if attempting some of the roads you have done. That doesn't mean that I haven't made the odd offroad excursion when riding solo. I do wear a sat tracker just in case.
