since you pricks insist on going when I'm at work, I'm gonna let Steve borrow my camera so he can get you all on film when/if you go down...of course, that assumes Steve can stay upright, which is not guaranteed by any means

Is there a good gas station with coffee in New Straitsville near the trail head? I'm going to leave the SW corner of Columbus about 8am and just take 270 to 33 to 93. I hope to get down there 20 or 30 minutes early and grab coffee and fill up.

I think Logan will be your best bet for a gas/coffee stop coming from that direction.

Yeah, there's no gas station in New Straitsville. Go north on 93 a couple miles to the junction with OH155 at Shawnee and there's one there.

Ah, that's what I was afraid of! Looks like I'll pass a speedway on 93 in Logan, I'll just stop there!

I’ll give it a shot with you. Not sure how much off road riding the shoulder can take yet, so I’m just gonna plan on taking it easy and will bug out for home if it starts acting up.

I'd be on the WRR with a new rear tire but I'm sure everyone else will be on a real dirt bikes.
You'll be fine. Sportsman are all at the end, and with this weather, it'll be loads easier that usual.

I'm thinking about heading down to Wayne to ride. Is there a head count?

I guess I need a tag or an APV sticker right? Just no Wayne pass.
