You guys got some great pics, I'll add a few:
Image
Weather was looking sketchy Fri nite with the wind and rain...Foggy Sat morning
Image

It improved pretty quickly and some blue sky and sun were seen
Image

Lots of cool wind turbines
Image

I was surprised how well the pig hooked up, though sometimes you'd come into a corner to find
Image

Fun hill climb
Image

Image

From Mountain Ridge you can see the Flight 93 Memorial, so we went on the way out Sunday. Flight path
Image

From the impact site overlook you can see the wind turbines at the Mountain Ridge camping area in the distance
Image

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I though it was very well done. Very moving and emotional walking thru the timeline display. Here's to those who fought back on Flight 93, we'll never forget.

Until I make a mistake and then the extra hundred+ pounds beats me to death...

Yup, good point, I plopped into a mud hole at one point following the OFG into some swamp and started to go over. As much as I didn't want to fall in myself, I really didn't want that bike stuck in there. I kinda pinned it as I was going over and let it go at the last second to launch it out, then jumped toward the edge myself. Worked out pretty well!

I still have them on my phone. I've been having trouble posting pics. My wife promised to help me, just havn't had the time for the two of us to sit down together to do it.

I have a couple good ones of you and your boy! The pics don't show the steepness down and up out of the creek but they are still pretty good.
