This pic is the entrance to some trails in the woods behind my neighborhood:
These pics are from last summer, when a buddy of mine on his BMW 1150GS and I rode from Orlando down to Bull Creek, a wilderness preservation area near St. Cloud with off-road trails. We had gotten a lot of rain the week before, the swamps were high and some of the trails were cut by streams. We crossed 3 or 4 streams that were footpeg deep before we reached a place about 7 or 8 miles in where the road was completely washed out:
We waded out and the water was knee-deep, and we couldn't tell where the road was exactly. If we were in the middle of Kazakhstan on bikes given to us by the manufacturer and being followed by a documentary cameraman, we'd go for it; but we turned back. The road was submerged for at least a hundred yards before we lost it in the trees, and we could hear someone in a truck trying to come towards us from the other side and it sounded like he was struggling.
Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I didn't bring my camera, I snapped them with my cell phone and the lens was extremely dirty.

It's not an adventure unless you need a tent, a passport, and a leather glove for your shooting hand.
