So who's up for some fun in the George Washington National Forest? What dates are good? I know JD talked about Pots Mountain Jeep trail in the past. Looks pretty intense from the YouTube videos. Anyone have any interest or know anyone that has done it before? Any other areas of interest post them up.

MY 40th birthday is the 22nd of November. It would be one hell of a great way to celebrate!

I'd love to go, but I'm out. I'll have to make some local trips!

This might have to be the first TECORE that I'll miss. Just really bad timing, plus my transmission is also on its last leg with some bad slippage and overheating starting to show. I need to nurse it through the winter, or at least until I can get a chance to find a replacement.

I could probably do the last couple weekends in November, before that and I'll have to pass.
