There is a nice 4wd trail on down the road if anyone is feeling sadistic. Please do not ride it alone.

Don't think the Jeep trail is open yet

The last time I was in the area the Jeep trail was closed, I was told it would not open until April...

Hmm, It seems I didn't look under the right rock.

Hmmm... Davo's pics were pretty explicit. Wonder if it's been grabbed, but not posted yet by someone else? Seems unlikely that some passerby would have found it randomly. Did it look like the rock had been moved?

Ok tallbob. From where your bike is parked, walk PAST the sign. Then looking from that direction, look at the sign post on the LEFT (uphill side). At the bottom of the sign post remove the flat rock that is in the 9 o'clock position. RAT is underneath. I know you have done work at the Radford Arsenal, this is much easier and safer. Caution to all...do not forget that there may be traces of snow still near the top of Potts Mountain.. I was hauling A-- up the mountain, entered a tight curve at about twice the "recommended" posted speed and encountered the snow run off. Rear tire slid about a foot over, then grabbed dry pavement and stood straight up. I was about 5 mph away from a high side

I suspect that Tallbob was searching on the wrong side of the sign. There is no way that the RAT would have been noticed and removed. I ASSUMED that my pictures led a obvious path, but that is probably my mistake for ASSUMING. Tallbob, I would be happy to ride up there with you on Sunday, at this point I am curious

Half of TVR will be up that way this morning. Soon we'll know if the RAT will show. NVTS

I didn't pay close enough attention to the pictures. I thought it was under the rock at the post closest to the road. I looked around the other post but didn't pick up the rock. When I got home and looked at the pictures again it was obvious so the rat is probably still there.

I can think of a lot worse places to ride to if you are going to get bruced.

Went back to Potts Mt. this morning and looked under the right rock. Took Mr. Rat to the TVR breakfast and then on a tour of West Va. then home.
