It got up to about 92°. The route we picked was void of stores. I had one bottle of water and it was gone by 3:00. The stores were so far apart that I nearly ran out of gas. Still, it was an excellent ride.

You know what? Me and my realtives/buddies have had this conversation before. No matter where one lives it ain't perfect! No one can find a place that ticks all the boxes. Just can't be done.

Good riding? Lousy Winter. Pretty trees and green? Lousy humidity. Great restaurantes and entertainment? A bazillion preople and expensive to live. Blah, blah, blah.

If you could ride 1/2 as good as you think you do, you would be a pro.

These are from last weekend. I rode with Chris again. The route included part of the GOAT and a few new routes and variations.

Under the railroad bridge over Sallisaw Creek at Marble City.



This is Old Stagecoach Road. Apparently, it was a stagecoach route at one time. It must've been an awful rough ride, it was bad enough on bikes.



Low water crossing at Little Lee Creek. This was my fourth time here and the first time that water wasn't over part of it.





Chris holds his feet up.



Well, it is a Suzuki, after all...



The last time I was at this lake, the gate was locked. Today, we were able to go in.







This low water crossing was our last adventure of the day. It was so slick that we both went down. At least the water was cool.
