I would prefer to start 9am or earlier. I figure beat the heat, any weekend crowds, etc.

I have to understand my weekend schedule yet, but we can make it one of these days for sure. I'll let you know tomorrow. Also what time do you think you would start?

I've seen crowds there, but they end on a parking lot. Or a Peters Mill run which is a road, basically :lol2:

But ok, let's do that on Sunday then, turns out I have a thing to do at noon on Saturday at home.

So Sunday 9 am at Tasker's it is :)
I'll be in a white older Sequoia with hitch bike carrier and a yellow-ish DRZ on it.

Yes. Here on Google maps https://goo.gl/maps/TAwapwDDrK62
You have to buy a pass before. I've been to two places where you can buy it: Shell https://goo.gl/maps/jCYPJB4zXTs and Exxon https://goo.gl/maps/txWN1uVTthn. Day pass is just 5$ and I have a year pass for 30$

Have fun, guys! I have a game Sunday morning so I won't be able to make it. Then again, I just found out I have a game Saturday that would limit travel, too. :-/

Had a good ride yesterday. Nobody showed me around and took me on some trails that kicked my ass. In all honesty, it was my choice. probably not the best choice for someone who has not ridden proper technical trails for many years. I heard Taskers was rocky, but i had no idea!! The weather wasnt too hot but it was incredibly humid. It wore me out pretty quickly. Nobody split from me as i needed a break and some easier trails. after the break nobody suggested another trail that was a better choice for me. still technical with all the rocks and such, but a bit higher speed and i started to get more comfortable with off road technique (instead of my road technique that ive burned into my muscles over 20 years). I had a couple get offs due to poor technique and fatigue, which led to even worse technique. all in all a great day and i have the bruises to show it!!

Nobody was a great riding partner. Nobody would check to see if i was still following. Nobody waited a few times for me to catch up. Nobody helped rescue my bike from the weeds preventing it from slipping over a steep grade. I have Nobody to thank for a great day! I cant wait for the next chance for a proper ride.

I'm glad you liked it :cheers:
Was a great day for me too as my signature states. Too bad I didn't capture you trying to take the shortcut down the slope. :lol2:
Hopefully I'll find some time to put together all I have in a short video. Gotta show you the snake I found. I'm still thinking it was a rattlesnake.
