I mapped out a partial GPS route that consists of mostly dirt roads, to the Enterprise, AL area on the computer a few weeks ago. My overall goal is to find a dirt route to Knoxville, AL. area. But I’m working on one section at a time. Anyone that has done any of this knows that sometimes regardless of what the map says, the “planned” way may not be a public road anymore or it has been paved. So this leads to the fun part, Exploring it out.
NoleDiver from ADVrider had called me the day before about wanting to go for a ride somewhere. We met early the next day & head out.
We lost track of total miles for the trip but it was somewhere around 250
A couple of our favorite signs of the trip
NoleDiver is back there somewhere…..
A quick pit stop & helmet wash
We came across several patches of new gravel. The pucker factor was high enough that it kept me too busy to remember to take pics….
We grabbed a bite of lunch a Larry’s BBQ in Enterprise. It was great as usual!
One of the reasons I wanted to go towards Enterprise was that I wanted to see the devastation of the recent tornado first hand. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,255698,00.html
What is left of the High School
Across the street
It looked like a war zone for block after block after block. Words can not describe what we saw. Please remember them in our prayers.
As I always seem to do, I got so caught up in the ride I forgot to take as many pictures as I should have. Please forgive me.
