    Figured it was easier if I started a new thread.

    I had a great time last weekend, and I want to do it again. :bounce: So, I (and at least one other) are coming back down to Harrisonburg this Sunday at around 10:00-ish. Which trails we're doing is still up in the air. Even if we did Salt Shed again, I'd be happy.

    For those of you who said you were busy this Saturday, I moved it to Sunday, so you should be free. :D

    For those of you who missed out last weekend (Jamie, Tony, I'm talking to you), you're getting another chance.

    Who's in?

    I'm planning to attend the world famous Pig Run at RC. It can't compare to "Pigs in Heat '03" but it will be a great time. Where are you camping BK?

    See, I'm going to be on vacation over the weekend of the Pig Run, so I need to get my wheeling in beforehand.

    I thought I might not get much response.

    Brandon is doing his birfs this weekend, and I might help or at least stop by and critic his work. ;p I'm watching my 2 year old son as wife is out of town. :crybaby: Sides I'm kinda waiting till my birfs are done and then I'm gonna wanna do the conway and the ditch. :D GWNF is allright but with gas where it is I don't think I can justify breaking out the G8TR for dat right now but appreciate the invite dude. :cool:

    Well, I hope you guys all have good trips/days-at-work/luck-with-the-wrenching, etc. If any of you get free for some reason, I'll be driving by the Food Lion on 33 at around 10:00.

    Sorry Felix, I can't make it either. I'm headed down to school for the weekend to pick up tools so I can try my hand at roofing next week :doh:

    Don’t forget the flat blade landscaping shovel, pops nails out a lot easier than a hammer!!!

    I picked up a "roofing removal tool" for $20. Figured it would pay for itself in time and frustration. We'll see how it works.

    Pics

    Sorry you guys couldn't make it; it was a great time. :cool: It ended up being me and another guy from CLCC, Ross with the 62. The water was lower this time, in both the river and mud holes, but the mud was thicker and the trail more challenging overall. We played around on the hills heading towards the reservior and explored some of the trails that head past there.

    Here are my pics, but most of the cool stuff was shot with Ross's camera. Mine sucks. Once I have his pics, I'll post any cool ones.
