Just a heads up to the locals, some dude went over the falls today.He was lucky he only broke his wrist.
Holy Cow. I would say extremely lucky to only break his wrist. Was he crossing underneath the falls or did he go down crossing up top? Or just got too close and slipped?mtnbiker66 said:Just a heads up to the locals, some dude went over the falls today.He was lucky he only broke his wrist.
Heres a tip for Cornmill, take your shoes off but not your socks when you walk across.Socks work kinda like wading boots, they stick pretty well.Cannon Ball said:Scary!!! I've always wondered if anyone has bit it crossing the river on Cornmill Shoals Rd.
I've always thought a guide wire would be nice at a minimum.
Yea,l was riding a log on Caney bottom last January and dropped my front wheel and wound up in the creek.I rode on nubbs the rest of the ride.Cannon Ball said:I have crossed the top of Bridal Veils once in my life and that was during a drought period. I would never cross it now knowing how slick those rocks get. Speaking of river crossings have you ever crossed one in the winter time. It hurts sooo bad when you get out the other side. I have to walk around for a few minutes to bring life back to my feet.
Yeah my friend Jamie and I did Lower Trace>Laurel Mtn> Big Creek the day after new years and the first big river crossing i make it 3/4 across and throw a foot down and walk the rest ankledeep. Jamie wasn't as lucky makes it 1/2 way and the front wheel washesout and Whoosh in a split second is completely submerged...yeah that had to suck! 5minutes into a longass ride and every inch soaked and cold outside. we get up FR1206 before LM and he goes for the waterbottle and at this point is almost dry...Whossh the lid on the waterbottle wasn't on tight and so he was wet again with gaterade...the rest of the ride was at least eight to 10 more watercrossing...kept waiting for some more humor...nadaCannon Ball said:Speaking of river crossings have you ever crossed one in the winter time.
