    i used one of the ride "Log Books" on my trip and it was nice, but seemed to have a lot of wasted space.

    After getting home, decided to get a few Write in the Rain little spiral notebooks and a Space Pen. Now I just keep them in my jacket pocket and can whip it out (notebook and pen) whenever needed.

    Late post but I'm thinking about truck camping at Rapidan WMA tomorrow. Maybe hike up the river/explore some on foot. Any interest?

    Hey, anyone interested in some really technical rock riding should try tail 495 out at taskers gap. Went through it today and had my first instance of not being able to open my hand for about 5 minutes. Death grip on the bars.

    It's short but sweet. The worst is about 2,000' long. It ended just as we were kinda getting into its groove. :lol3

    Fun stuff.

    You sir are nuts. That first section is Erzberg/Trials Bike territory. Though I have seen it done on dirt bikes.... as in I watched. :)

    The first rock garden climb up from trail 553 was intimidating, but just get up on the pegs and give it the gas...:ricky

    .. And slip the clutch, and deweight the pegs, and pick the bike up 2 or 3 times. :lol3

    I was surprised how much just having some momentum would get the bike up and over those boulders. It wasn't easy, but was super satisfying to have made it through.

    Enough tractor seat time, need some DR seat time tomorrow. Heading from King George thru Orange to Madison, the easy stuff east of 231 first, probably finish up doing Quaker Run & Blakey Ridge out & back. Or maybe something else. Happy For anyone to join up, will hit the Sheetz at 3 & 20 around 1030.

    No rush to get home, Packers don't play until 8!
