Quarantine

Koi in a bucket of old water, in a pond that is being filled with aerated water from a hose. This is being done to acclimate the fish to the new temperature of the pond, and to dechlorinate the water.

Big Frog Road

Anybody who is looking for a really mild OR trail, the Big Frog Mtn Loop that runs along the TN/GA border off of FS221 is open and mostly clear. Good surface, but a lot of trees down/cut. Bring a saw. 
This is a well-maintained, gated FS road that is the access point for Hemp Top and Beech Bottom trails. I haven’t been up to this area for dozens of years… though I’ve hiked and ridden MTBs on this route, it’s a relatively new “road” connection. Again… BRING A SAW.

24F battery

A 24F OEM battery from a 2017 Toyota Tacoma, taken off at 42K miles. Includes tray and strap. Does not include meter.

Replaced this battery because it tended to leak a little water and acid during bouncy and steep off-road driving.

Battery is in good shape and fully charged. Strap shows some corrosion from fluid leakage. Battery does not leak under normal use, only under extreme use such as high speed on rough forest roads, or steep off-road conditions.

Kona Process 153 AL 29 2019 vs Santa Cruz Heckler 2008

11 years of progression. All mountain has come a long way. The old Heckler now feels like a BMX bike, compared to the big wheel modern enduro.

Nitto Ridge Grappler 265/75R16 on 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD OffRoad 4×4 Double Cab

Just got some new tires, so far so good on Georgia inland desert conditions during July 2019. Hopefully it rains and we’ll get some clay compaction. Otherwise… Georgia = Gobi.
