My wife and I took advantage of the long weekend and went camping in the Great North Mountain area just west of Woodstock, VA.

There was beer:



Wine, woman, and dog:



There was fire:



There was food. Mmmmmm Chicken Pot Pie!



There were bikes:



Oh yeah and there was some riding too. We stuck mostly to 4wd / fire roads. We road up Cedar Creek to Bread Rd. then hooked up on the Little Sluice Mnt Trail, across Tuscarora trail to the Sugar Knob and down Little Stoney Creek. It was a pretty good ride. We covered around 13 miles and 1500' of ups and downs.

I bet the smell of chicken pot pie mixing with the smell of autumn leaves was breathtaking. Almost brings a tear to my eye just imagining it.

Yeah. It was pretty nice. The almost-full moon was just the icing on the cake.

Ha Ha! My wife is not too fond of the "dutch oven" of which you speak!

Got shot down on Saturday, tried doing a mountain trail that starts at 2800 feet up. The town that it's close to had no snow and the snow started on the ridge above at about 3500, so i figured we were good. Well we get all the way out there (100 mile drive) and there was over a foot of snow at the trailhead.
(insert game show loser music here)

Then on Sunday had a great ride. It was a birthday ride for some mt. bike club members and it was good times. The trails were easy but were in the nicest winter shape for lowland Pac N.W. trails i've ever seen in my life. Hardly any puddles, hard pack, and sloped. As it's been raining in the area i really couldn't believe it.

Those do look quite disgusting. We don't have anything like that on the east coast. We do get big giant millipedes, but they are fairly harmless. They make a good crunch when you run over them.

Yup! Did an awesome day of beershuttles on Saturday at one of the local areas. No pics, too busy riding!

Maybe I'll take my cam next weekend. If I get off my bike I'll let you know what us hooligans get up to every weekend...
