    Just got in and settled, Great Trott even if I didn't get to ride any due to battery problems.

    Had my mom and all 5 grand kids with me and everyone had a blast.

    No time to go trough all the post Trott post hope to get to that Monday PM

    I was the last one to leave today and the place looked amazing thanks to everyone for policing their area upon leaving.

    This chair was left around the fire pit, it had some other items on it when I found it, If you are missing anything send me a massage and tell describe what you are missing and hopefully I have it.

    AG, Thanks for posting all the pics. I had a battery malfunction with my Garmin Virb so I din't get a video this year or any pics. Appreciate you taking the time to leave evidence of this assemblage.

    Thanks to Billy, and Eloy for the place to crash Thursday night, and a big thanks to Mug and Tony for coming out early to wish me safe travels. Mug :bow bestowed upon me a lucky chicken (no helmet) that very well may have saved my hide today as I may have been over the posted by a tad in North Texas
    Glad to hear all went well and I'm also glad I missed the riders meeting- I'm already in enough meetings as it is :lol3

    TURKEY TROT VIII A SUCCESS

    Big thanks to everyone who helped with the trot.

    Special thanks to my son Dr Philgood for his effort it making the food portion of this event so awesome. Without him the food line in the evening and for breakfast would NOT have happened. I imagine he will finish cleanup by Wednesday.

    Next thanks to those who simply jumped in to do the thing things I forgot. Like Madhouse for the awesome fire pit. Gimmee,Barney and others for firewood. Flirting with Disaster for trash trailer ice and spare gas. Single Track Jeff for route board and policing the area last night.

    The food donated by so many is always appreciated. Of course there was no drinking so no passing around of an amazing assignment of intoxicants.

    Tomcat for handling the awesome shirts stickers and cuzies.


    Thanks to all who took pics and videos and take the time to share with us. Your pics and reports are all part of the fun.

    Last - big thanks to all who attended our little gathering. I appreciate your coming and commend you all on the responsible way you all conducted yourselves. With over 100 rides we had a huge impact on the forest over the weekend but with no real incidents.

    Lastly- there were a few who got hurt but NO INJURIES. let's all that God for that one.

    Hope to see you all next year.

    On a high note... I learned everything you need to know and then some about a AJP motorcycle in matter of 30 mins.. Followed by a lot of "Ok, Right, Uh Huh, Yep, Sure, uhhh, OOhhKay"

    Thanks Vic for the awesome event, Tomcat for the T-shirt etc effort, and Easyrider 58 for the epic romp through Blackwater; DS2 forever! Only got about eight minutes of video before my battery died, I'll try to get a minute or two out of the dust and post it soon. Here's a pic from Hurricane Lake, shows most of the Dual Sport 2 crew at a break:
