Runs will be short, but it is much better than Hawk Island if you just want to ride. I thought maybe I'd go and work on some switch or something.

Edit: it is park oriented, but not exclusively like Hawk Island is.

They have tubing there too, but if you want park you are better off to just go to Cannonsburg.

Don't want park at all really, which is why I avoid Cannonsburg. That and the crowds I've experienced there the two times I've ever been. Really I wish that Bittersweet was a bit cheaper and a bit closer, that'd be perfect to shoot over to for a night session.

Well if you ever wanted to, it's about 20 minutes from my work so I could meet you out there one night.

Ugh, I should have pointed out that I can't do Thursdays. My wife plays volleyball Thursday nights.

Haha fuck it's always something isn't it! I've been trying to plan a weekend in Boyne for February and it seems every single weekend there is SOMETHING that's screwing me over.
