Holycaveman's Neanderthaw ride

Just some quick pics of the ride today and of the the stay at the cabin. Rained all day yesterday and the mud was everywhere.

Buildit, rallycarjon & blimpman haul their red KLR's to within 40 miles of the cabin.



Constant light rain all the way. As you can see, it had been raining for awhile.



REALLY muddy hill up to the cabin.... Accesed by 4WD ATV or maybe if you had shoes with 6 inch spikes.




Well.... Rob948, Sparky11 & Holycaveman made it up the hill. Rallycarjon fixed his mirror trying. A+ for effort. Did I say it was raining?


Buildit and KLRmike watching the hillclimb festivities


Stofte was there but still on the mend.


Ohioroadrat in from an afternoon of riding in the rain.


Warm and dry in the cabin.


Next morning .... still raining until just as we set off for a 50 mile ride thru the township backroads of SE Ohio. First gas stop.



MeefZah thought his KLR could swim and little stronger than it really could. Did I mention it had rained?



OK... highlight of the day... Holycaveman is leading down a "dead-end" township road and fails to negotiate a slight righthand turn "over" the rain swollen creek and slides safely down the bank and into the water landing upside down. Could have been easily hurt but he came up smiling.

Here are my videos.....

video was good, but the pics aren't showing up.

The shortest distance between two points is a damn shame.......

I rode Broke Back mountain, and my a$$ is killing me.....

yea looks like I have exceeded my bandwidth quota on Photobucket.... Should reset on the 19th and everything should be OK.

Now I have to find a better place to host pictures and videos.

Suggestions?
