    I've been on a couple of them. Never been up Long Run, but we can figure something out. probably ought to put the better tires on the Tiger just in case things are slippery. There's still snow in several places.

    We could meet at Sheetz off 33 in H'burg whenever you guys make it.

    Post when and where for the sat. ride. If I can make it I'll be there.

    Parts of Dunkle near the top never see the sun and I imagine will be difficult, like wise for rough run. I'll try to scout some this week and report on the ice.

    Sounds good Paul and dean. I need to coordinate with Matt to figure out when we are leaving. I imagine he'll ride down to f-burg from dc and we can depart here at 0900. Puts us in the burg about 1045 or so. Too late? Matt wants to be back in dc by 1800, but he can always break off. I thought about swinging by for blooch's crab cake dinner.

    Hopefully most of the snow and ice will be gone by Saturday. The weather for Linville, VA calls for highs in the mid-50s all week and a high of 68 on Saturday. :clap

    Depending on time I may just do Long Run and head back but plans can always change.

    Hey Kev, which way you thinking of going up to Marshall on Sunday for the RTE? I might be coming down to Madison county on Saturday to see the folks, and would be leaving from there on Sunday morning to go to the RTE. Would be nice to hook up somewhere along the way.

    If you are interested?

    Walt and I will be taking River rd ( 618 to 620 to 610) thru Fburg working our way up to cross the river at Kelly's Ford. Take Summerduck toward Remington, Freemans Ford rd (651 turns into 621) to 229 north to 211 NE for a few miles. County rd 691 is a straight shot north to the intersection of highway 66 and 17 just outside of Marshall.

    Sounds good Scotty; my plans for the weekend are changing every hour it seems, so I don't know if I'll be leaving from Prince William county or Madison county. I'll keep you posted as we get closer to the actual day.

    Can I make a suggestion to get you totally lost? :lol3

    When you reach 211, turn right, then an immediate left onto Old Bridge Rd., Rt 622 and take that to the stop sign. You will get to cross the old one lane bridge taking this route.
    Turn right onto Leeds Manor Rd., Rt 688 and go about 2,000', then turn Left onto Old Waterloo Rd., Rt 691...part of your route.
    Go about a mile and take a left onto Cliff Mills Rd., Rt. 681. This is a nice short stretch of gravel.
    Follow that to the stop sign and take a right on Piney Mountain rd., Rt 678. Go less than 1/2 mile to a left on Dudie Rd., RT 689. When you get to the stop sign you will be in Dudie, DEEP Dudie...Don't dab a foot! :lol3
    Turn right onto Wilson Rd. Google maps show the same route number as Dudie Rd. Dunno.
    Go a little more than 1/2 mile and you will see Carters Run Rd., Rt 691 on the left. From there it is a straight shot to Marshall.

    Be aware in that Rt 691 isn't quite a straight shot. It is a combination of Old Waterloo, Wilson, and Carters run roads. Old Waterloo to Wilsons is a no brainer. Wilson to Carters Run is easy to pass as it is a side road, on a curve.


    This option shouldn't make the trip any more than five minutes longer and it is slightly more scenic.
