I can't do tomorrow night but might try to get out for a few during the day. Have fun out there if you go! And just an FYI in case I haven't mentioned it before (or you ahven't been before), it's just a terrain park, that's it. They have beginner through advanced features, but it won't be like riding on a real "mountain".

Still, it's only like $10 for all day and it's a great place to practice.

Yeah I've seen it and know what it is. Hit my first jumps at Crystal last Friday and I want to work on getting better at it. Was going to take off tomorrow and hit Crystal one last time but I can't afford to miss work right now and didn't feel like the drive anyways. Thought this would be better than nothing for a couple hours after work, which is only 5 minutes from there.

If I like it might go there Friday too.

I might try to get out there Sunday sometime if I can... although it is starting to be "yardwork" season

Let me know if you do because I will probably be free. However, it's supposed to fucking rain this weekend I think.

It looks like it'll be alright for Friday. I have that day off too and would love to make the trip up there, but I'd be surprised if the wife didn't give me shit about it. Sigh.

yeah, works ok for me because I leave after the kids are dropped off and will be back in time to pick them up...comes out to about 4hrs of driving time and 4hrs of riding time. Maybe get her some flowers today and then ask?

Haha maybe. What time you plan on leaving/getting back? I'd be up for splitting gas, but like I said I'd have to talk to her first and it's a long shot. You're in GR right?

Man I'm honestly a little glad that they'll be closed next week so I can stop scheming and daydreaming at work.

Also, with a Shell coupon you can get two for one lift tix. Ride for 12.50 each. We did that last Friday there.
