You could have tried out your GS on the downhill jump that is now famously (infamously) called "Henry Hill" (after Doug Henry's unbelievably scary crash in 1997...I saw it from the starting hill area...Very scary ).

Anyway, thanks for the pictures from Maryland...It was nice to reminisce.

Thanks CharlestonRider. I'm hoping to take the family to Budds Creek this summer to watch some races. I remember working as a flagman when I was a teenager back in Colorado. It was a great being able to watch MX races while being paid at the same time.
