I'm leaning more towards riding down there with you guys but I would meet up some where between New Market exit and a Harrisonburg exit on rt 81, if that would work. If you guys come down next Tuesday.

What's the current thought on this trip? It's been mid 40's the past 3 days here melting snow, but there is still a couple inches left so far. Weather shows mid to high 40's through Monday and then creeping into the 50's Tuesday through Friday without dipping into freezing at night during the trip days. Probable rain, though.

I'm thinking about cancelling (or postponing). I havn't had as much time to prep for this as I'd have liked. With weather conditions and huge amounts of slop out there...

I could probably be talked into heading out to the Cove (or somewhere) one of those days to ride small bikes in the slop.

Got some more dates to throw around? May is pretty busy with events on here. June is busy for me. April perhaps? As long as it's not the first week, I've got almost the entire month off if I wanted it.

The 8th is the WATR Spring Trail Ride, but something like the 10th-12th for the same trip would fit my schedule quite well...

But you guys plan another trip as you can. Scout it out!

Yes down south they got 14" snow into this morning. And that is in the valley like Blacksburg or dublin. I bet the mountains got more As far as postponement dates, I may make whatever you guys choose.
