Eric, see you at Hampton Park basketball court ~10am
Leaving from the James Island McDonald's (hope some others show) ~9:40
If we hit Willow Hall and some other FS roads we should be at
Wambaw around noon or 11:30 if we ride at "Robert" pace


Last Saturday was nice and packed but lots of whoops, I tore off a rear reflector on one hard landing. I hope to many limbs aren't down but don't mind helping clean up as needed.

If I'm back in country Sunday I might try the DS loop to the south of West Ashley.

Unfortunately I came down with this respiratory thing going around - I'm out. But maybe in a few weekends, or early this week if things go well and I feel better.

oh, the Ho-Cat, yeah! My bad, just didn't make the connection. I'd love to do that tomorrow, but my Nuvi doesn't do tracks. I saw Laura's instructions somewhere for converting the gpx to img - anyone happen to have the img file?

There's a way to use an android phone as well. Check Google, I'm in bed playing on my phone.

Wambaw plus on Sat Mar. 22, 2014

The GRN KLR 650 is going to be displaying slow trail riding technique on the Wambaw trail Sat. mar 22, 2014. Should be starting at the trailhead about 11am. Bring $5 for the box and ride along if you like. May also demonstrate how to properly drop a KLR, depending on riding conditions.
