yeah, to ride the fs roads you must have a tag or get a ticket.

If anyone could do Peters Mill on a unicycle, I am confident you could.

I haven't ridden my unicycle in a while, but I could give it a shot.

Dave, if it is serious slop and no one wants to do the Peters Mill section it could be edited out. If some folks want to do the PM section, you could lead the other riders not familiar with the area and not wanting to do PM section to the Woodstock Tower overlook. Come out and ride with us. The rest is forest service roads out to WVA and back.

You make that thing look rideable by the rest of us sub-6'3" mortals.

Hey, you can wheelie that thing, right?
