Well back to the topic, Crabb WAS convenient for me since I live at 59 and BW8. I guess I will have to go to one of Frank's SMR to find some new roads. Have a good day folks.
I lol at your education comment. Go back and read your original post. A five year old can string together a better sentence.

The only time I worry about tar snakes is early am when the light dew makes them slick. Other than that, one should not have any issues.

It was a big difference from the time you took us out there the first of the year to the 2 weeks after when we went there.

I used to think that too.

I don't remember which road it was, but last year we were coming back from Yankees on a hot day and I was slipping all over the road on every corner. That road had TONS of tar snakes. I remember asking Cali and he said, Yup they're slick when hot too.

Sounded counterintuitive to me but...

Tar Snakes are good practice

A little movement is ok. a lot, well that sucks! One thing the track teaches you is to look way ahead in the direction you are going...if you do this controlled, tar snakes are not so bad. Almost like tail braking at the track. A little freaky at first, but kind of fun.
