ok its Sunday the 30th of october,

I think its time to see if we can get some definates on who is going to be heading to Richland Gap trail...and definteatly where to meet...there has bee alot of talk on this subject and i have seen a bit of wishywashy stuff...lets get it all together and get this going...

Brian7758, i think you should go ahead and edit your initial post ans try to get a list of who in fact is going...as of right now i am going to confirm that me and my wife are definately going, also i want to tentatively say that a friend of mine Allen with a Heep is going. i cant speak fully for DIRTGHOST but i will assume that he is going also...



so to recap

Mike and Angie Thompson

Allen Beacom and family (+3)

Darrel and Annette Combs

If you go camping where would you camp at? I won't be able to camp out this time, but maybe on another trip. Just curious.

There's a ton of free camping at nat forest land in the area. Then there's Julian Price Park but I think it's closes in Oct.

If anyone planning on going has trouble with the meeting arrangements please let me know.

THIS RICHLAND ROAD RIDE HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO NSUFFICIENT INVOLVEMENT.

I am going to try to meet up with Jami and Doug (and others) who are heading to Brown Mountain OHV park. I am sure they would welcome anyone.

I was still trying to make up my mind if it would be worth it considering all the rain today and colder temps tomorrow. Thanks for trying to put this together though.

I sorry guys, everyone that confirmed couldn't make it. Paul, Yuri, I am not opposed to going, just wanted at least 3 vehicles. If you two are in, we can still do this thing. If not I am going to catch up with the group heading to Brown Mountain. Just let me know something.

Yuri, I personally think the rain and the cold weather will make it more fun!

Paul, If we can still do this run are you coming up in the morning, or camping Friday night?

My limiting factor is an event I have to attend later that evening. I'd have to be back home by 3pm and I think that will cause me to be under time pressure. So although i agree it would be fun to go even if the trail is sloppy, I'm going to make the call to sit this one out and just mess around the house this weekend, maybe take a look at my brakes if I get some time.

Sorry.

bigdogdewey2, good to hear you and your eye are going to be ok!

As for the ride, weather today looks great, would've been a nice ride, but the wife couldn't make it and I would've been pretty tired from work, so not a total loss...definately going to have to plan another, soon. Who was it that wanted to do it once it snows?
