Lenda and I scouted out Jeepy Hollow looking for a way to open it back up. Then rode dirt bikes Friday. We had the place basically to ourselves. On our way to Jeepy Hollow we saw 2 coyotes. Unfortunatly we were shocked and they were too quick for us to get a picture of them. The 1st one was across from Twister going through the little valley. The 2nd was in the middle of the road at the RV camp.

As far as wheelin, Saturday there were 4 rigs 7 people and 2 dogs. We had a riot. We just skipped from trail to trail. We started at 10 am and by the time we left. We had hit about 11 sloppy trails. The group of 3 continued and can fill you in on that part. With only 4 rigs in the group we moved right along. I have to say going down Jerry Pauls was about the craziest. Ben said we had the driver rear 2 foot in the air 3 or 4 times. This was as we slid down the ledges cleaning the mud and leaves off for the folks behind us.......
With the heavy duty sleeping bag and 2 puppy heaters we slept great. We were treated with the moon coming out a couple times over the weekend.
Friday night we traveled west of Gilmer to Pine Mills. There is an excellent catfish resturaunt at the corner of hwy 49 in pine mills. Highly recommended. Open Friday and Saturday night from 430-9pm or so http://pinemillscatfish.com/
Sorry we missed some of you. Maybe next time.

Hey Guys!! Looks like fun!! I wish Scott and I could have came- maybe next time! Lynda, looking forward to riding with you, It would be a shame for me and you to show up Mike and Scott--(ha-ha)- We will leave them "lying in the mud!" See you guys soon, Rita.

Adam ... you forgot COLD

Looks like y'all had fun. You are supposed to turn over YOUR rig, Mike, not Lenda's!

No matter what, I heard it was Mike's fault he was spotting.

We did have a blast this weekend. Since I've only been riding a few times, and this bike is relatively new to me, Mike's still taking it easy on me. ;) We rode for a couple of hours and did several trails at BMRA. We would ride a relatively easy trail... and then we'd hop onto a single-track through the trees for a little bit... and then we'd hop off. Mike didn't want me to get too frustrated but wanted to push my skill just a little.

We had a great time. There's so much riding that I coudl still do @ BMRA... It woudl be interesting to take the GSPD and do some 2-up riding as well. It woudl be very good practice for us before trips ot Mexico!

Perhaps we could get a bigger group together some time and head out. It'd be great to have a "beginner" group and an "experienced" group so people that want to mix it up a little in the day have the opportunity. Perhaps after the holidays we can get something organized.

Thanks Mike for tolerating my need to camp thsi weekend... and for your patience with me learning to ride teh bike. We're having a riot!!

That is right, Mike doesn't really camp that much. Ahh, the joys of marrage.
