    Went for a ride this morning. About 35min from my house. Mostly paved country roads until about 10 miles from the river.



    Some pics....



























    Ran into some quicksand riding close to the river. Kept the throttle in it, and attempted to hop off, but sank half way up my boots. So got back on the bike pushed from the saddle and it make it out. front and read wheels werepass the axles. After i got free you could not even tell i had rode through that area. No trace of my tracks....... but made it home safely and learned a lesson....

    Thanks for the pics!



    Reminds me of some of my old stomping grounds back in Eastern North Carolina. I don't miss the rain, but I sure do miss the water.



    Glad you and your bike made it out of the quicksand OK!

    The color of the water in your 3rd picture reminds me of the color of the water in the TV show Ax Men where the S & S boy's do the water logging . I've never seen quicksand, other than in the movies and TV shows. And if avoiding snakes, spiders, panthers, bears, and wild hogs etc. weren't enough to worry about! Looked like a fun ride, and way warmer than here! Thanks for sharing.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Pretty close to the same water. We are about 4-5hrs from where they do that logging on the Swannee river. This creek was WAY up when comaperd to normal. I went on this same river last year on a canoe trip withmy 2 boys. I had to walk most of the 15 miles due to the water being to low. Im trying ti find a few better places to ride off road. I really enjoy riding the dirt roads and tails.

    Nice ride!



    But how do you say "Escatawpa"? I have been trying different things out loud and probably one of them his right.



    GO TIDE! I am Stanford fan and I hope Alabama kicks N.D.'s butt really hard! (Stanford lost to ND.)

    Escatawpa is a stange word... its pronounced around here as S-CA-TA-BA or S-CA-TA-PA.



    And yes I'm a TIDE fan, but not sure if my blood pressure can handle the game....

    Beautiful country down there. Looks just like the sandhills here in SC.
