I had plans to the UP next week but that ain't happening, so I got Thurs & Fri off work.

Wife & kid will be out of town so I'll be riding Wednesday night thru Sunday, travelling one or two of those days as long as I can arrange to board my dog. Otherwise, Cannonsburg is about as far as I'd want to go on a day trip (2h each way).

Shit, if you just look at the aerial views plastered all over their website there's a lot more that can be done with the North Peak too. And I've always wondered why they couldn't do more to improve the interlink between the North Peak and South Peak. Cut some more paths both ways or something. I dunno.

Just spoke with my mom during my lunch break; she lives about a half hour west of there and said they have a lot of nice fluffy new snow there and have for much of the week. Two more days bishes.

Sabatoa just read of your injury. Tough spot dude, tough spot. I've been nursing a groin sprain all winter but I've been lucky I've been able to ride through it thus far.

Yeah, I'll be there tomorrow as well! Say hello! ...I was hoping to hit there tonight as well, but Too much to do, and I've been irresponsible as all hell lately to get that 20 days! (...It's been mostly "Quantity" as opposed to "Quality", but I'll take what I can get!!)
