    Looks like a wet weekend!

    The forecast is not looking like it's going to change. Rain is likely Friday and Saturday.

    This is an adventure ride so it's a rain or shine event.

    Showers will be open for all to use.

    Don't forget your rain gear and water proof tents!!!!

    Don't worry, my friends and I will be there. I just might opt to ride the CRF230 Saturday and the AT on Sunday... Unless I put the Kenda big block on the rear that's sitting in my garage.

    I'll have both. I tend to do really wreckless (but awesome) things on the CRF. Mostly because it weighs nothing and I can throw it around wayyy to easily.

    Big improvement over the Shinko 805? That's what is on there now, but it's close to 50% so it isn't very good offroad now.

    Weather update.

    The amount of precipitation for the area has dropped. Now we are looking at .95" instead of 1.5".

    It's going to rain as of right now, but it's starting to change toward lower amounts.

    When checking the weather, don't forget we'll be west of Blue Mtn for most of the riding, and it's supposed to clear up the farther west you go.
    Pottsville area was looking good last time I checked.
    Friday: Cloudy and a little rain, high of 63
    Saturday: Occasional Rain and drizzle, high of 66
    Sunday: A pm thunderstorm in spots, high of 79

    Just sayin...

    Sorry for the loss, thoughts and prayers are with your family.

    If you can't spot the crazy on the bus, you are the crazy.

    This is the third year in a row it will rain at smokin hole. In years past, it has always stayed overcast which made for a perfect day of riding without much dust and with cool air so you don't overheat. Don't fret.

    Hoping there is a designated old and slow group I can join. Although we need to recruit a couple of young guys to pick up our bikes. :-)

    Bring your GPS if you have one, I'll load up the tracks on Friday night.
    If not, you can get the tracks on Rever too.

    Regardless, we never leave anyone behind
