Talking Feels at home in the woods for sure

Found a easy atv trail yesterday and was surprised at how well Woody did.

Post Back at it.

With all the Thanksgivin' mess over with, our thoughts turned back to getting out and explorin' some back roads and woods. It was easy to convince my son T_Off to come along with his Impreza and to get some riding buds, who are always on their dual sport motorcycles, to come along in my Subie for a loop yesterday.
The weather is turnin' cooler, 25 degrees at 9 am yesterday and 55 at 2 pm but full sunshine and blue skies all day!






We headed East from the NC Piedmont into the Atlantic Coastal Plain of South Carolina. The differences between the two regions are a big part of what makes this loop interesting. The Piedmont has endless rolling hills and is primarily red clay dirt while the Coastal Plain is flat as a fritter and sand, sand, sand.
Part of the morning was spent makin' our way through the Sandhill game lands, which covers 58,000 acres in NC, and where there's many miles of sand roads, some hard packed and some are deep loose sand. There are dozens of small ponds to small lakes scattered all around to check out too.

Mindblowing scenery you got there dude.

Say, if I were to visit America, are there car rental companies that have Foresters?

Nice!!! Amazing the difference between the eastern and western parts (I know you were in SC) of our state. Looks like y'all had a great day. I want to know what kind of machine that ball screw, your son is standing on, is from.

Thanks Turbo, it's a big change from ridin' bikes together but just as much fun! My oldest son, B_Off, is having an awd issue or he'd been with us.

The local Subaru dealer may rent Foresters, I'd be glad to do some leg work for ya if you decide to come our way Tweaksta. If we can't find a rental we'll make sure you're mobile while here! There's a couple of "hots and a cot" waitin' on ya at my place too.
I'd like check out some of y'alls scenery sometime as well....

Thanks Carl! It was one of those perfect weather, route, company and mechanical days. Other than my sons phone...
We'd all rather be livin' near you in the mountains but it's not too bad livin' halfway to the beach and having the two regions at hand. Huge differences in weather too! Everyone I know that spends any time playin' outside heads to the hills for most trips, the east side of NC/SC plays 2nd fiddle. It's a little harder to make the flat sand interesting.
The big screw...I've done some research but found very little info on it. The screw pin was placed by the Marlboro County Historical Society in 1970, they changed the road name to Screwpin rd also, that's all I've found. It's an oddity for sure. Considering the items left at the base of the screw, I'm pretty sure I know what the local teens do there.
