17th ORT in The Lone Ranger– SIJA Jeep Jam at SMORR 5-18-13
We covered around 15 miles worth of trails Saturday, staying mostly on 2’s and 3’s since my wife wasn’t feeling 100%. We did manage to play around on Larry’s hill a little bit, but with things being so wet, it wasn’t happening.
The fog was thick as we took the back roads down to SMORR:
Wandering through Stocker Stomper and Pewee’s crossing:
Then the Wife wanted me to go play on the ledge some so that she could get some photos. Me being the goofball that I am went for it at full bore:
But the wheel base put me in a place where I was trying to climb two mud slicked ledges at once. It did make for some fun video though!
We went through lost bridge and a few other fresh trails in the park:
After that the group wandered back up to Flex and Stuff to wrap up the day:
The next day we started out with breakfast at Coop’s Café just off the highway in Seymour (very recommended for cheap, good eats). We started heading east with JN into some pea soup fog, eventually it let up:
And we jumped onto some two lane:
Where we stopped at the remains of Turner Mill:
Until we got to the wheel and springs:
We then hit the single track again:
Until we got to Falling Springs Mill. Sadly this mill (and the area around it) has been severely vandalized within the past year:
Until we got to the last mill, the Klepzig Mill and Shut-ins:
