    If I wanted to ride when I come up to visit my brother, will someone show me around? I'll be happy to use my truck for shuttling.

    last spring when stiff, dbr, and i came down to ride with you, it SNOWED like crazy. whenever stiff stops being a P.I.M.P., we'll hit up sherando again.

    i just bought a house in silver spring and i should have extra room to host guests coming up the northeast region (you should hit up diablo with us this summer, jeffro).

    Well, the kicker is I work until 6, and many nights after the fact. So during the week is out, and my Sundays are all tied up.

    Well then YOU need to make a point on riding on Saturday!!!!Its called preplanning ahead of time like tell everyone I'm going riding next Saturday and then do not cave in and just go ride.( unless something VERY important arises)

    Pre-planning is a great concept! thumb: However, with a wife AND 3 kids, pre-planning is more theoretical than practical...

    If pre-planning doesn't work, escape may be the only option. Run, Ralph, run!!

    Haven't been in Korea. I just decided to sit out 07 as far as Snowshoe/DH went. Car stuff took over. This year, Snowshoe and DH are back in the schedule - it will be a busy year.
    Hey, I rode Buttermilk/Forrest Hill/North Side trail today. The RVAers have done an unbelievable job on that trail system!

    On that note, and with only 1 kid, I'm planning a trip to Diablo in August after I take my 1st round of board exams. Hopefully everything goes through on it.
    ANd to keep the tread on track, I too can't wait for spring.....

    oh my other bikes have been ridden. the xc bike saw some neglect because a hub paw decided to take a trip in to outer space. the trail bike is currently buried in mud and the trials bike gets some action from time to time
