During the Memorial Day weekend, we had a terrible forecast for Saturday, so Harley and I decided to do something we haven't done in years. We loaded up Big Blue (my F150 4X4) and took off to the Talladega National Forrest and climbed over Rebbecca mountain.
TALLADEGA NATIONAL FOREST - REBBECCA MOUNTAIN
There's an old washed out fire road that connects Hwy. 77 to Hwy. 148 near Millerville. When I say washed out... I mean Grand Canyon sized gullies and craters that made maneuvering the truck very slow and interesting. A couple of times, I even had to get out to see if our wheels were even going to make contact with some tangible earth. It took us two and a half hours to ride over 18 miles of fire road. I could kick my own butt now for not getting any pics of the road, but I did get some pictures of the beautiful flowers of the forest.
During our little adventure, Harley and I reminisced over the good ol' days when we used to drive an old '75 Ford Courrier through the woods in Meridian, Ms, just to see how many ditches we could take it through. Good wholesome redneck fun! Woo Hoo!
I have to admit... I'd much rather be cruising the highways on two, but every once in a while it's nice to have fun with four. Have a great Monday everybody!
