On Saturday morning, May 17, 2003, we got up extreeeemly early.... and met up with Jeff and Jim. We headed west from Orlando, to Croom, a dirt bike area in the Withlacoochee State Forest.... here is the evidence!

Here's the setting.  We're right near I-75, about 50 miles west of Orlando, in the Withlacoochee State Forest.  A very serene setting.
Here's Jeff with his toys, and Jim. 
Here's the 420 machine... Rick's baby!
The boys are out riding, and I've stayed behind to take a few pictures.
That's Rick in the distance, on the 420 machine, heading out into the great unknown, a big smile on his face.
A view of some of the areas we rode in... Nice trails, really... lots of obstacles, a fun ride!
Rick taking a breather...
Jeff, Jim, and Rick.... all paying proper homage and respect to good ole 420!
Another view of Rick and his baby....
Jeff's LTZ250.... a fun machine... soon to have a twin brother....
420 again.... Rick never gets tired of looking at his bike....
Rick and his bike.  Notice the mud.  Rick stopped to help out a fellow biker who was stuck in the mud.  As they say, one good turn deserves another.... good thing Rick was so generous....
Here we are, stuck in the mud.  That's me way in the background.... I chose to walk around.... Hey, it looked solid...but I was stuck up to my knee....
Luck a passerby had a rope...Jeff pulled out Rick's bike with the quad.  I am in the background, weighing about 20 pounds extra with all the mud on my feet and ankles...
The mud.  Looks innocent enough.  Verrrrry deceiving!
Another view.... you can see that the mud sticks to everything
Good ole 420, with about 50 extra pounds.... That mud is heavy and slippery.... a lot like quicksand, I imagine....
