Pretty sure we did gauley ridge and camped along it. If I'm not mistaken. We also did ditcum down to the gate and back up. That's a nice trail. Good rocks and a couple good mud holes.

No problem Mike (Firefox) like the guys were joking about, I live for that stuff. I love problem solving and fixing things. I also like helping people whenever I can. I'm glad our camp site eyeball job was good enough to get you home and not ruin your tires.



Fwiw I got my spare tire mounted on a new rim today. Going to start investigating the gas tank issue soon.

Dictum Ridge is an enjoyable ride. That one and Second Mountain are the trails that I usually take people on for their first trail rides. Although I did take Bobby (blazintrails) to Flagpole for his first trail ride in the TB...

I will have to make a trip to check out Gauley Ridge. It has been on my list for a while...

Yes, we hit Gauley. Its not what I had really hoped for; it was fairly well traveled, but it was a good enough spot to camp on. We found a new campsite (dubbed Songbird) that I hadn't camped at before, so that alone was worth the drive. Plus, Gauley had some good open fields, so I was able to get some nice aerial shots.

Bacon, if you have time, pull some of your favorite shots out and post them in this thread.

Love the shot Jason, it really brings out your eyes.
