So I setup a small group of guys to go down and check out this HH area in SE Ohio.

I had the local AAA office from Logan, OH send me a county map so I could outline the roads I wanted to check out.

So Thursday we left... and started out the trip with traditional breakfast stop

It seems like everytime I go to these trips these same a-holes follow me

Then he gets even more comfy... back seat driver?

We decided to make a small detour and see Hale's HD in Mansfield, OH. Then Tom violated my poor bike

Then Dave followed suit and teabaged Brandon's (noob) bike.

Tom snagged the rare pic of me rolling
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Riding/Hocking%20Hills%202016/IMG_3069_zpsgvfysag2.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Riding/Hocking%20Hills%202016/IMG_3069_zpsgvfysag2.jpg.html)

After we made camp and slept a night... we hit up our favorite diner in Logan. M&M on main street. The owner, Michelle, came running out because she remembered us from last August when we ate there on our way down to WV to rafting... anyway she's a hoot and this is a must eat place.

We stopped in our travels to many great eats... and another dealer in Athens.

We stopped by some old train and looked around... Nate found this water filler for the old steam trains. Not sure what he was thinking.

The final night (Sat) we even cooked some burgers over the camp fire... it was heaven.

We also visited Ash Cave
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Riding/Hocking%20Hills%202016/13450025_1127760537287409_1598656031547869981_n_zp szxr9fsem.jpg (http://s99.photobucket.com/user/cjclark69/media/Riding/Hocking%20Hills%202016/13450025_1127760537287409_1598656031547869981_n_zp szxr9fsem.jpg.html)

So against TLC's advice we chased after this so called waterfall.

It had a big rock...

Then you could walk up and be on top... nate of course stepped beyond the guide ropes and went out to the edge. It made him feel alive and sexy so he posed

OK I closed out my Odo with this.
