Dolly Sods road sucks, washboard and way too much gravel.
That's easy enough. Definitely looking to get as much dirt in as I can before my schedule and the white stuff ruins all my fun. What time do you usually hit it? I'm definitely not opposed to sleeping in a bit on a Saturday, but if there's good stuff to ride I have no problem getting my ass out of bed.

Its going to be a stunning weekend up in the high country. I'd love to ride with you guys but my attendance is required at a wedding in DC.

DC? Don't you feel a cold coming on? Could even be the flu.
Best to not take any chances. don't want anyone at the wedding to catch anything.

I'd stay here and go riding

As for time, I try to leave here around by 11. If I stay too late my wife finds stuff for me to do.

So, where do you guys want to meet?

I'm game to meet wherever. Where could we meet that would be easy to find and close to some riding? I figure either that or grab lunch in Davis and leave from there.

Man, it woulda been nice to see something besides cruisers. We were at hellbenders early afternoon, but the wife hurt her back so we were in the cage. On a positive note the fish in South Branch were cooperative as usual.

We parked across the street, on both sides of a bagger.
I bet the rider was horrified

Mine at least isn't very clean.

Mainly bluegill with a few smallmouth thrown in. If I felt like fooling with them I would've had probably 30 or 40 eating size gills.

What's the latest scoop on the Canaan loop? Wife and I are GSing over in the eastern part of Wv next weekend and I thought we may hit it up and check out the purple fiddle afterwards.

Yesterday I would have said you were good if you had decent tires.
It's been dry for a couple weeks.

Started raining this early this morning, and looks like it's staying for the day.
So, I'd take a hard look at the creek crossing. I was there this summer when it was wet and the creek was about 5 feet deep at the far end.

I may pass then as I'm on 1/8 tread scouts and will be 2 up and no one to help fish the beemer out if I goof up.

Good plan.

I'll recon if I get a chance tomorrow
