Yeah let me know when you travel south.

I will let you know when I head north-have a parcel of land west of Churchville. Plan to put a cabin on it maybe this year? Or next?

I did not make it to LF.

One of those times something more important than riding came up.

West of Churchville is where we do most of our riding. Definitely let us know when you're up this way again. Sorry you couldn't make LF maybe we'll see you there this fall.

I rode part of the BRT Memorial Day. I started at Fulks Run, VA on FR423 and then connected to FR240. I've been on the road some years ago in 4WD and it pretty much was like I remembered it. Pretty rocky bed in places, plenty of ruts but not too bad, some muddy patches but again not too bad. Crossed water 3 times with no problems.

This was my 1st DS ride so I kept it fairly short while working on skills and techniques. Here are pics if you want to see what happened.

Thanks for the all the hard work and now that I've started I'll run it again and expand the ride.

Thanks for the RR and pictures. If you don't mind I am going to cut them into this thread for others to get a sense of what this route is all about.

Just looking over your map for my area and realized I rode a section a couple weeks ago. Rte. 623 in Bland County north from Rte. 42 into Burkes Garden. Out of the Garden on Round Mtn. Road. All was easy riding except for some rocky sections and greasy areas on Round Mtn. Rd.
