Been a long time since I've actually posted a trip.... So I'm trying to make up for not wheeling at all last year.

Me and my Girlfriend went up Friday afternoon and camped till Sunday and came home. We had some amazing weather while we were up there. The Weatherman was calling for rain Saturday-Sunday but that wasn't the case. Friday was nice a cool in the mid 60s, Saturday it was up in the 70s and then Sunday the rain and moved in. Saturday we waited for some of my club members to show up to go hit the trails. We headed out to Marble Head and Shale Beach and took the same trails back. We took the muddiest side of Drummond which ended up being fairly dry... The Island was pretty dry and wasn't much of a challenge compared to when I was up in April. Sunday we took down camp and then just drove around the Island. We went up the North end of the island and I tell you what it was beautiful. Never been up there before and it was just amazing. Didn't take any pictures other than the Sign explaining what the area was.

Looks like a fun weekend, and a good workout for the SAS. Thanks for posting the report, and all the pics.
