    No pix. Yeah, I know, it didn't really happen without pix.
    Beats the heck out of the snow a few years ago that took out WAY more trees here, blocked our drive and the State road for a good while.

    No, I didn't intend to imply that here - it was so epic that I figured you or your wife snapped a few images of the carnage.

    The sausage gravy recipe is very complicated. I can give it to you in person when you drop your tent off for our campout Memorial Day weekend.

    Yesterday I decided to go out riding. There was a group of guys going out from the Richmond area but it seemed a bit unorganized and a good bit of a ride to even get there. So I just figured I would do my own thing. I left my house and rode west to Stokesville. Took North River Rd north to Briery Branch and headed up to Reddish Knob. I got almost to the top where the road splits.

    Down into WV....

    Up to Reddish Knob....

    Up to Flagpole (I think)......

    There were some guys up there in Jeeps. They tried to go down into WV but had to turn around. They all had big tires, lifts, and winches. They said there were some places the drifts were 5'-8'!!

    So I went back the way I came.....

    Riding around just having fun in the snow....

    I went back down and rode up into Hone Quarry. The road was just wet where cars had driven through so it was like riding single track. There were a few spots in the shade where I almost got in trouble. The snow was packed down and SUPER SLICK!!!

    I rode back to Stokesville and headed up to Todd Lake. Then across to Elkhorn Lake. The road from Elkhorn out to West Augusta was very packed down by everyone that had been up there fishing. This was where the low gearing and the light weight of the little XT really shined! I actually had to get off the bike and walk it out. I just played with the clutch and throttle and pushed. It was so slick and I was sweating like a pig by the time I got out to Rt 250. Caitlyn got tired before I did and decided to take a nap.

    Trip was about 100 miles. I wore my new Arai XD4. I really like it. Its a little more noisy then the Vector, but very comfy! The weather was great the whole day! This be probably be my last ride until I get back from the sandbox in May. :(: Overall a great day!!
