I got back to Sessions again, but this time I led a small group. Everything was rolling well, but there was a few spots with standing water/mud. We ended up doing almost the same loop I had done two days earlier, with a couple small variations. We hit Jug-a-lug instead of staying on Jug all the way through, that was a mistake. There's a big tree across where the a-frame used to be, and the a-frame itself is gone.

We started by crossing 69 and riding up the blue trail to the by-pass>up the ass kicker hill>2 bears>fire road>cemetery twisties>jug>jug-a-lug>>scoville twisties>truck trail>b-street>done.

We took the slightly longer route from the truck trail over to b-street.

Good ride. I'm starting to feel like I'm getting some stamina back, but I definitely still got gassed quite a few times. it ended up being just a tad shorter than my ride on Monday, at 6.98 miles, we also must have taken more breaks as it took us a little under 2 hours. That was probably due to my rambling on about who knows what at every stop. :lol: The average moving speed ended up being the same, 5.97mph. Somehow the GPS figured that we did around 100 feet more climbing.

It was a little chilly at first, but we warmed up quickly. Its definitely nice to be riding some old favorites! I'm still loving the Scoville Twisties... 8)

I think all of the wet areas we ran into were spots where the trails crossed skidder roads from recent logging, so it's not a big surprise.

This.

Over the past few years, the CT crowd has peaked my interest in Nass. The vidoes I have found on Youtube don't seem to do a good job showing what it's about.


Here's some from last year.........

I gotta get myself back over to those areas! That's me in the vids and I hardly recognize half the terrain...
