Ted, its drying up quick! Big marsh is a pretty much a night ride once the dew sets up, puddle jumping at best and thats not much, if you don't like cherry red headers I'd stay middle river, running south till we get some rain.

Hit the back trail from Florance last night and there was water all the way with a few muddy skips but like MArshrat said the water is coming down quick. Half track had some water to the trees and also Mikeys

Water is down a bit i seen it lower. The slew infront of the oak head still has water. I have seen that dry. Boat ran good all but one battery conection. guess when I reinstalled the batteries i mised one clamp. Saw Turtle out there beside that it was lonly out there. I like that. Riding by my self I stay on the caustion side of not getting stuck. That being said i have ran the trail with 3 on board from florance to the middle river dry. I have also slide up on a bank and spun around and got stuck bairly out of the water before.

In orange county. I was getting a variance to put up a 5 foot fence in my front yard (Iron fence and gates) and they tagged my canopies as unauthorized structures. Now i have to get permits for and be brought up to code for 150mph winds. It the meting even the people who recommend approval or not of variances said what those are not allowed, there sold everywhere?

Well, not much water over by Harry's and along the fenceline. No water on trail from moccasin to oak head either.

Ran them both today end to end. Talk about windy too....however, Florence trail was totally fine.
