    Swamp riding

    I got out and rode southwest of my place to the Black river area, I was amazed that 40 miles west and I'm in some rugged mountains and 40 miles east I could be in a black water swamp. I'm a hillbilly and have a hard time walking on flat ground, but this place was pretty cool and I'll go back when I can.


    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    I hope you took your fishing pole, there's gotta be some big ones in there!

    Looks like a cool place to visit, nice that it's so close by.

    Very nice! I didn't know ya'll had cypress trees anywhere north of the very southern part of Arkansas. You're in the northern part of the state, in the Ozarks, right?

    Yeah, I'm 18 miles south of the Missouri line, that cypress is pretty far north for sure.

    Those are cool photos. Did you run across any animals?

    I saw a few turtles and a lot of water birds. I was watching for snakes more than anything, Canebreak Rattlesnakes get huge in that area.

    Nice photo's. Really look neat r80t. Reminds me of a movie scene from the movie "Southern Comfort" I think?
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Southern Comfort is one of my favorite movies, Ry Cooder played some good swamp blues on the soundtrack,

    I wanna see the pics, but can't for some reason. I wonder what's up with that?
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.
