    I have it loaded in my GPS and for once it actually guided our group correctly without major incident.
    670cc and I were joined by KSL noobs: CRSTEP,Kodiak and fiescr.
    We rolled out 9:30 and made it back to MO's famous BLT dinner.
    With no rain and high 80's it was a bit dusty and hot. We rode 1-5 and everyone agreed we gain altitude and head over to the Pkwy.
    I spotted an NC coming up from the West of the overlook where we were stopped and gunnut also recognized our group.
    Perfect timing, as if we had planned to meet him there.
    I'll let others fill in the details about the route but it was one of the best I had this year. Same roads for me, so it must have been the good companyReturn to the Land of the Dragon...again....2017

    Here's a quick snap of a stop along one of the great primitive roads DCTFAN led us on. It was gravel road trial by fire for CRStep, shown on the left, but she came through with flying colors. While it wasn't "off road", a few spots were challenging by gravel road standards.

    The person that sorta almost barely dropped their bike was me, on pavement after I hauled down quick to avoid t-boning a pickup that crossed our path, at the weirdest intersection I've ever seen. I guess I tipped over in slow motion and held the bike up off the pavement since there's not a scuff or scratch anywhere to be found. DCTFAN rescued me and got me upright.

    Nice. I was worried you were leaving the area and we had not even ridden together yet. We need to do a ride when your mobile again. Pm me when your ready. I'm in Arkansas now. (Sorry didn't mean to intrude on the thread)
