I'm trying to weigh the pros/cons of everything to my boss err wife since she is funding the new toy ;)
Iffin you're looking for a 625 sxc, I could put you in touch with a guy who's got one for sale fairly local.

I trained pretty hard, by my slacker standards, and ran the 10k in the rain (you know how I enjoy a good chafing )

But just here recently I've become gimpy in my left knee.. Hopefully it'll pass soon and we'll get back out there.

With rain in the forecast for the 10k you didn't trot on over to Lucky Feet or your fave running store near or far for some preventative problem-solving? Rain should not be your bane. As to gimpy, sorry to hear. Hope a bit of time off does the trick!

Thanks to all for the trailer offers. All covered now, and hopefully the mule will get fixed quickly on Thursday.

I'll gladly check the garage, but anything I might have that will fit his 9 year old granddaughter will most likely also fit my 10 year old girl. Scan eBay, I always see a lot of used MX there CHEAP! Scan CL too!

I think I've got an HJC helmet laying around somewhere that's a size small. May be too big for her, but it's the smallest thing I've got.

So I was using Google Maps to look up a couple real estate properties for a client, and came across this plot of land. Doesn't look like any houses are on it. Doesn't really look like hunting land as there aren't a lot of fields around. Wondering if anyone has been back here, or if they know who owns it?

Type 37.317445, -77.462583 into Google Maps. Looks like a LOT of trails.

It is owned by The Thomas Company LLC and is co owned by Shoesmith AKA the Chesterfield Landfill people. It is a whopping 1032 acres!
