Manly off-road skills...
GuyMANbro's easy trails are normally as easy as he says... Only post-Hurricane Irene-what-the-hell-happened-to-the-road? got the better of the 7 of nine last year.
If I were able to come this year I would follow him again if he'd suffer to have me along. He and Troy are two guys I would trust trailside anywhere in the world. Same for the others whose names I cannot remember.
I will try to have a donation set aside at the store this year for the gathering.
Dark beer, maybe a few steaks...
