    I'm plan on just following the course markers :deal
    No leaves on trees easy to see everything.

    As a side note- for those of us who have trouble rolling out at zero-dark-thirty- is there a hard start time/riders meeting?

    No- there is a meeting - but no hard start time. As Marco said earlier this event,is not to mistaken for a dual sport or a porker run etc. This is a fun day in dirt - only goal to be safe and raise a bunch of toys and money for the kids.

    The attendance was impressive. Latecomers were still coming in when the guided rides were leaving at 0930.

    Photo taken just prior to the Mudtacular. The DR650 isn't presently white, nor are my boots or pants black. Everything is a St. Clair gray.

    Fantastic day at Reading Anthracite!
    I heard someone say there were over 500 people there - up from about 120 last year!!

    Marcus and his crew put together a really great event where everyone benefitted:
    - toys for the kids
    - temps in the 40s
    - great trails
    - tons of rocky riding
    - food for the hungry

    Thanks for putting this together. It was great to see so many friends at the event.

    Good ride today. Great attendance, wow. The raffle was a hoot. And plenty-o-chow.
    Thanks to the organizers, looking forward to next year (you may need a bigger parking lot).

    We used everything from DW to Valley and that's 3 lots alone ! :D There were people coming in from Walmart and Burma as well. Completely unexpected and totally insane ! We knew it was an issue at 400 that we were prepared for. When we hit 500 and people were still pulling in we kinda knew we were screwed. :lol2

    Registration went on till 11am !

    Great weather, trails, food and prizes. All those people and still plenty of room on the trails. I'd definitely get a RAC permit if I lived closer.
