Great pics! This just reaffirms that sometime I have the funds and the time I need to get out there. Looks like it was great weather

somebody needs to spring for some better offroading tires! I'm guessing he struggled a bit more than the others.

The single pass uses 3/8" and the dual uses 1/4" NTP.

I'd be up for a RC trip or another place over that way, I need to get outta state sometime this year. Either that or I may hit WV in November sometime if they have a run down that way. When are the two runs you speak of?

We have a ride at our place on the 17th if you wanna come out... a couple trails will probably be out of service due to hunters being on them; you know... an arrow in the ass wouldn't feel so good!

If you hold out a couple weeks (maybe even next year, depending) there should be a new off-road park opening in Northumberland county. I hope.
