Cool! Actually PK on Fri. during the day would probably be pretty sweet! I imagine it's a lot less crowded compared to what I've experienced there there on a Sat. & Sun.

If that works for people, I'm there!! Last few weekends I have usually been getting out there between 10-11 am and staying until 6, 7, 8pm or later anyway!! Not as many Pink Toddler Missiles on the hill after 4 pm! I work evenings & nights so weekends have been the only time available for me!

But again, Just a suggestion! Sat. is fine by me too if that works better for people!


Oh, BTW. As far as the "park" goes! One good thing about bein' Old!! I can no longer be "Peer Pressured" into jumping off the Empire State, just because "Johnnie" did it!!

Yeah,.. Good point though! None of you guys will be required or expected to hang too tight with the Old Guy if I can't keep up with you!!! You will not hurt my feelings if you head out to the jumps & rails after a bit! Ride a couple runs, scope each others skills & temperament,.. If we get along and don't annoy the shit out of ea. other. Cool! Maybe a couple carpool days n some buy one get one lift tickets to save us some money between now & the end of the season!!! If not, Well I've been riding by myself and havin' a blast since I started!

So Who's in & for When? Vote? PM? how do you usually set up a meet!

We usually set up time here or on Facebook. Most of us also have each others numbers.

OK. Lets set it up here. (I'm not on Facebook) and really, for this weekend anyways, You guys should come to a consensus about what day & time works for whoevers "in"!! . As I said, I'm off work Fri. so time and day is completely flexible for me. If you guys need to go later than I was planning to,.. Well, then I'll already be there when U get there!

So get together amongst yourselves, decide and post it here! I'll make it work for me!

Thnx! Lookin' forward to it!

Considerably less crowded during daytime weekday hours than evenings or weekends.

Usually we set up a meet (which might consist of 2ppl or might consist of 5+) by kicking it off here or FB and whoever can make it goes like I will go to ALpine at 8pm on a Friday and if someone can meet me up there, great, if not, I go solo. No use waiting to try & coordinate everyone's schedule but usually you can find at least one person to hook up with.

I like to post to both the forum and FB since some ppl are on one site more than the other and I personally like to schedule my days when Leo is not available to ride

I am probably not available this weekend but

Another oldster here, from the Detroit suburbs. I'm always up to meet someone on the hill, even if it's only for a few runs. These days, I'm almost always out with my (older) son, who's 5-1/2 and on skis. If plans come together, we'll be at Nubs Nob this Sunday and Monday (he has Monday off from school). Locally, in general, we tend to go to Mt. Holly for Sunday day sessions.

Nope, sorry. I work M-F 8-5:30, so day session on weekdays is out for me. (Monday the 30th is the exception. Kid has the day off from school, so I scheduled vacation from work to cover it, but we're heading north.) If something shapes up on a weekday evening, I could do a 6-9 or so. But in general, don't plan around me. If I see something coming together I can come to, I'll chime in.

Ok, So my plan right now is to head out to Pine Knob Friday morning. I'll get there sometime between 10 am & 11. (gonna wait for rush hour traffic to clear out!)

Depending on when anyone else who's interested can arrive there, post your ETA and I will plan on looking for you @ the Board & Ski check out in front of the rental shop.

How's that work for you Leo?

BTW, When looking for me,.. this is my "Ride"! Arbor Roundhouse 163W / Burton Cartels.

...& I'll be wearing an Olive drab, Gray & Dark gray Zero Exp. Jacket, with Tan & Red Burton Pants, White Thirty Two's Boots. (...if my helmets off, I'll be sporting a White bandanna dew rag for persp. control)

Sounds good. I'll probably be there around 9. I'll make some turns before you get there. Not sure which jacket I'll be wearing. Depends on weather.

I'll be the only one with this:
