Actually just headed over there this morning with my son. We hadn't been in a couple of months and, after the posts on here, had started to park at the elem school on the other side rather than go in behind Martin's. Unfortunately as we were getting ready to pull in to the parking lot, we saw there was a Chesterfield PO/marked car sitting in the lot so we bailed. We were glad we saw it before unloading or coming back out of the woods and he didn't follow us. We were disappointed that we didn't get to ride because it was perfect weather. I guess we're looking for a new spot to ride now, if anyone has any local ideas...

Here is a video from a similar trip last year to give you an idea of what to expect: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZoqYde0WVQ

I can provide a ride for one person and their bike from Newport News.
PM me for further details or if you want to join the ride.
Great vid! Wish I was staying around for the next couple of weeks 'cuz I'd have to partake in at least one weekend of that kind of ADV.
I'm off tomorrow morning for MN with some Spock gloves, thanks to Snore Machine. Hopefully we can catch up again at the September RBMWR.

Thanks re street rockets. Let me know if you want some if the awesome bags! :)

--

I've a few requests for the bags (yea!). I need to know how to get them to people, and if people can post which ones they take dibs on that maybe helpful. I live in the west end near regency mall if those interested want to pick them up, or I can send the usps if I can get the postage paid for. I'd like to get all the bags out of the house by end of next weekend or sooner if possible. Thanks for the help on this bag grab! ;)

Here is a video regarding those little DIY alcohol stoves I handed out today. Hammockforums has a discussion about it in the donating members kitchen section. Enjoy!

Richmond Va chatter

The great bag give away is now closed. I think I have people who are interested in each and every one now. Keep in touch with me to work out delivery options and I'll sort who gets what mainly by order of pm's and dibs taken.

Just to be clear if you PMd me asking for bags (but may or may not had a chance to post in the forum), you just need to let me know how to get them to you.

Thanks everyone!!

Finally had time to catch up after being gone for a few days. Ended up blowing a radiator away from home the weekend. Ended up having to change it out on the side of the road with minimal tools. Looks like you guys have been riding hard.

I saw some post up about riding this weekend. I don't think I can do the overnight thing this weekend, but I would love to get out Friday to meet some people in the mountains if anyone is up for a ride.
