    I have no explanation for that----------yes crazy-----thanks for pointing it out to me.
    Gave me something to do on maybe the last "good" riding day of 2017.
    Did you notice the blown out levy just a bit Nortwest of it ?????
    I use to ride on that------before Kalifornistan stepped in.

    Shocked as shit when rode up on that.


    Guy told us close to twenty million of our money tied up in it.
    Yes we rode past the equipment and to thie missing levee. Mississippi claimed a bunch of that back. Doesn't seem like a good idea to put it on that portion of a bend in the mighty river.

    Google earth shows pre destruction. Sill no harbour there tho.

    You see the burn out marks from some one backing up to that missing piece of railing?

    You know some broad was screaming at the top of her lungs as that took place.

    What the heck is it, a rocket launch pad? Open rail for doing some sweet jumps into the river?

    On the West side?

    So if anybody doesn't understand where this is.

    The waypoint "Barge" is it--------I put that waypoint there probably 10 years ago as there was a barge parked there.
    The yellow line leading East to "Barge" is a big wide smooth gravel road leading right to it. No signs whatsoever. You can see St. Genevieve on the map.
    The waypoint "Levee enter"-----was where I use to get on the blown out levee before it was blown out---------and before it was gated. The gate is right at "Levee enter".

    First time in this tread for many years. Thought I would say hello. HELLO! My name is Grant and I am from Tunnel Hill but now I reside in Paducah, Ky. I am riding all the time and I am always looking for people to ride with. Weekends are kinda hard for me to get away as I have a ton-o-kids so I go alot durning the week. I love doing day trips on gravel roads, back roads and trails. If anybody would be interested in riding let me know. 87E3E636-1469-404C-963B-D8328F1A9D8A.jpeg

    Awesome Mr. Mike---------we'll have to get together soon.
    I always remember that when I had a new bike--------I'd ride in weather I normally wouldn't.
