I am sold for this run, though I might ask to ride along for some of the more interesting trails.

We need to let Skip know ahead of time to wait until the wives are not in the room before he gives us the "warnings".....

If it has rained in the last 3 days, Skip says "Trails will be impassible with street and all-terrain tires. If you go by the lower part of the park 1 out of every 3 people will die!"

Atleast this is what my wife hears.

If it rains hard he doesnt so much close because of the trail condition anymore. The state roads division told him they would close him permanently if he had as much dirt on the road as he did the last time he opened despite the wet weather.

The roads got caked up with dirt and mud clods and the local fire dept had to come wash the roads at his expense.

"Ohkay ...Once again we will be closed today (April 27th) and Sunday due to rain. They say it is going to rain Monday Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday and Friday next week too. (what do they know) But as for me I'm gonna start building an Ark. ....Whats a cubit?"

I keep telling you guys the Night Ride (Fri),camp, day ride (Sat) at URE is still by far the best plan, but for some reason, you guys seem insistant on setting yourself up for disappointment! Laughing

Alright Paul, Are you going to be at the Uwharrie Night Ride? IF IF the Gulches gets closed down are you going to camp in the rain and do the wet night run. Because Uwharrie + night time + mud = lots of fun.

I've always been in on the Night Ride, and have a 90% committment from the wife. Heck, I'll even hammock camp in the rain if it rains AND Kelly cant make it if the Crazy Rube will!

As long as we can decide by Friday morning I am OK.

I am riding into Charlotte Friday after I get off of work and staying at a friends place if we decide to go to the Gulches.

Everyone come on down to the GULCHIS....bring a bathing suit and sun tan lotion for the gorgeous "white" "sand" beaches...and beautiful "clear" "free from debris" "river"

I was dead set on the night ride but was hoping for a big turnout...I think Chad and one other are still in, but it seems all the Big Names are focused on the Gulches, except you and I read somewhere you're going to VJunction. So right now I'm not sure...but the weather is going to rock at both places! Very Happy
