Super Sunday Fun Run, DTOR, Feb 4th

Turn off the tube and get out in the woods! Nothing too hardcore, just a fun little daytrip.

Some of us will meet at the Florence rest stop about 830, to put us at DTOR about 930, and try to hit the trails by ten.

Post up and we'll look for you!

There's a rumor that the rest stop we usually used might be closed.

If so, we'll meet somewhere off the next exit, Richwood Road. Maybe one of the truck stops? Looks like Wendys has a huge lot that should be empty that time on a Sunday...

They're calling for rain on Sunday. Do we cancel or move it to Saturday?

This looks like snow in the morning but drier in the afternoon.

I can't do Saturday, I'll throw up a post on facebook and see who can or wants to cancel.

Me and Tim are just going to my brother's house in Clarksville to ride Saturday. We just did a bunch of work to his razor and want to test it out. Would rather not drive all that way, pay to get in and have his razor break again.

We've still got a decent group going Sunday, and reports that the rest stop is reopened... Meet there at 830.

Not lots, but a few. It was as muddy as I've ever seen. Worse than anything at Haspin. It was heavy and sticky and cold. It clung to the tires til it filled up your fenders. It was a MESS.

But it was still way better than a good day at work!

And finally a few of another group, apparently from ATO. We saw them at the rest stop in the morning, and a few times through the day. Their JKs were fancy...

Glad i decided to go riding at my bros place instead. We rode about 4 hrs. Spent some time looking for some fun stuff. Was frozen most of the day, so not much mud. What little mud we found got washed off in the creek. All in all a good time. Rzr came home cleaner that it left.

Dirty Turtle is pretty hideous after a lot of rain.

After the last big hillclimb, I limped mine back to the trailer, making a gawdawful grinding noise that I was afraid was my front axle, finally giving up.

Pulled it apart this week, and didn't find anything horrible. Test drove it again today, with the front shafts pulled, and it still did it.

Started looking at the rear axle instead, and discovered that I had picked up a rock the size of a football, and got it lodged between my fenderwell, leaf spring, and left rear tire.
