    HUGE thanks to everyone that helps put this thing together each year! Had a good time riding with Art who was gracious enough to lead us around the woods and deal with my shenanigans directly behind him lol.

    GREAT time, as always! Going to label a few of these pics so I don't have do ask too many names next time lol. Hope to see the lot of you at the polar bear.

    One of the many interesting things about the Trot. With about 100 folks I did not have 1 complaint. Not 1. If anyone had any bitches they did not tell them to me. Thanks to everyone for that.
    I did get a lot of thank yous and compliments so Thanks to everyone for that!

    I must say the Trot took its toll on me. I walked to much and did not ride enough. Or maybe it the the constant BS that wore me out! Anyway this old man was tired! But well worth the effort.

    Hell now that we have a good party spot we might plan one of these for the Spring. Spring Fling at Blackwater? Impact the Forest Ride! PAR Spring Rally!

    There's a spring turkey season?

    I'd like to get out there when we don't have to worry with the hunters. I know they are pretty much out there year round but if we could catch an off time of the season would be great. I thought it was kinda funny reading those Bookface posts about our group over the weekend. One hunter posted that we were lucky that we didn't get an arrow flung at us. Another guy gave him hell for saying that! I think we have about half of the hunters who are tolerant. Other half is what worries me. I wouldn't put it past them to set traps. I've ran into them in NC. I had a cable almost break my neck. Not fun. My neck was swelled up like a frog!

    PAR Spring Rally? Looks like turkey season starts up March 18.

    Most definitely, and without a doubt--IN!!

    Either of those first 2 weekends in March would work for me.

    I figured I better put up an unadulterated pic of OG and also thank him for the demo of his GPS and the use of his reading glasses. :*sip* Thanks OG :thumb And also a special thanks for posing for this pic. I think it may come in handy in the future. :nod

    If I can find the time for it, I will try to come up with a fire pit mixture that turns the flames Psychedelic colors, and smells like reefer and Klotz. The kidz can watch all the old timers' eyes glaze over.

    Maybe someone else can bring a hundred pounds of munchies...............
