Fords and only Fords! No Chevys, no Buicks, no Turbo-Yugos either. Post the coordinates and a description of the creek crossing. Interesting dirt or gravel roads only - no asphalt! Also post your awesome ADV GPS tracks (.gpx files)

Moore's Ford Road

Post by pcoburn » Wed Aug 24, 2011 10:48 am

Not sure if this is considered part of the DAMN-area, but went through it last weekend so figured I'd share.

Coordinates:

N39 05.867 W78 21.285

Description:

Along the TET (Trans Eastern Trail) near Strasburg, VA. Video below includes footage of the crossing, nice and wide, wasn't very deep (but I do need to "T"/re-reroute my carb vent lines as you'll see from the video.) Crossing is about 35 seconds into the video.

Yes, it was a great day, and the following day it rained in buckets so definitely picked the better part of the weekend. 260 miles for the day that included a detour to pick up a new battery (wasn't holding the charge and no kickstart on this model). Between my hands falling asleep from the buzzing to the rock hard seat - that's about the limit at my age for this bike but it is a blast to ride!
