I'll be moving to the mount Vernon area 7/18

Just accepted a job.in the area. I will drive out by myself, and look for a month to month roommate situation. Then my family will come out the end of August. I'm excited to explore a new.area, and make new friends.

I brewed commercially for 12 years. People liked me better when I made beer. Now I just make water safe to drink. Not nearly as important.

you'll be right near Walker Valley ORV area, lots of good single track with roots and rocks, if you like that sort of thing

:)

Yummie single track. Is walker ridable all year round?? Most of our good riding is unridable from November to April or May.

yes, you can ride it all year around, but.. a lot of the good stuff is closed due to snow in the winter. Only a few days a year max is walker totally unridable. Bring your big boy pants, walker is not for the faint of heart. Burly, Burly, Burly.

pm when you are in town and ready to moto.. Tons of single track, tons of Forest Roads, just plain tons of riding to be had up here. I work at home 90% of the time so usually can sneak out during the week as well. Some fantastic folks up this way, and a few retired fellas that like to ride A LOT!!

Some parts of Walker could be subtitled as "Walkerzberg"
It can leave you pining for some dynamite.

Post up when you are ready to go for a rip. There is good riding in quite a few places around here. Particularly in the summer.

I'll be leaving the family behind to sell the house, and driving to Mount Vernon tomorrow Friday the 18th. I have to be at work on the 21st. Hopefully this will be the beginning of my next great adventure.

Oh and how high is Walker, and what is the normal snowline, or is that much snow unusual??
