    Hey guys,

    I've got 1 day to come out and play and I'm trying to figure out which day, I plan to head out the night before and camp. Wheeling on Thursday would be cool ‘cause my wife has Thursday off and could join the fun, but it looks like Friday is the best day weather-wise; I don’t have much experience wheeling and don't have any recovery gear yet, so I'm hoping to tag along with an experienced group that's willing to babysit and newbie on the trail. Suggestions, volunteers to babysit??

    My recommendation is Friday. We'll be wheeling at Rausch Creek, so we'll be closer to camp. The start time on Thursday is still way up in the air, so you may only get a half-day of wheeling in.

    As long as you have solid tow points at the front and rear, the rest of us will have you covered.

    Speaking of Thursday, @Stumpalama, @Jakes40 and I all hope to arrive sometime between Wed night and Thursday at noon. Hopefully, we can get on the trail on Thursday for a few hours.

    Anyone else planning on wheeling Thursday?

    If he happens to have the hinged latch for the small window on a late 40s hardtop, I'll take it. I don't think it matters but it's the driver's side.

    I won't be able to leave home until about 8:00 on Thursday, so you'll beat me by at least 3 hours. Thinking they'd be the only ones up there, Chris and Bob were going to just have a lazy morning and wait for me. But if y'all are up there together, go ahead and hit the trails. I'll text Bob when I get up there so I know where to find you.

    I like this idea.

    There is a very good pub in Pine Grove. I've eaten there three or four times. Good every time. We'll need to make a reservation.
