Anybody want to come out this Saturday? Looking to run north to south in the afternoon to hopefully end when the sun is going down to test out the lights.

I can potentially be convinced to change venue to Flagpole/Switzer Lake.

Meetup would be at 2pm at Fort Valley Country Store where you can buy a trail pass.
7091 Fort Valley Rd, Fort Valley, VA 22652

I might make this. I gotta get the oil changed in the X and turn up the parking brakes again.

Gotta decide if I want to drag the minion horde along or not.

I told some other Xterra buddies but haven't heard anything from them.

Might let some other friends know if there won't be many. We might show up early and run it S-N and then back N-S with y'all. I'll keep you posted.

Hey TerryD , let me know if you do that . I'd be up for making a day of it , especially since it's just under 2 hour's one way for me.

I haven't heard back from anyone elsewhere either, so as far as I know just the people that have posted here.

Hey Terry , I've only done Peter's mill once and we all met up at the gas station next to a wendy's and across the street from Micky D's . Would it be possible to met up there ? I don't remember exactly how to get to the trail from there since we followed each other. If you got an address for the trail head that would also work . I can probably get the gas station address from Jay. Thanx""" Eddie.C.

It was 7-11 with gas pumps next to burger king . Think I got wendy's on the brain.

Thank's Jay , got it back on the phone .
I think we met up at the Big Apple Exxon when I ran it last time. I've only run it once myself.
Ok , that's the one I just stored on the phone . You gonna pack in a lunch or run down to town and come back for the reverse run ?

We used channel 17 on the GMRS last time , is their any preference's or just grabbing a open channel when we get there.

It's Jay's run so he can pick but I think it would be good to all run the same channel in case we're not to the meetup in time, they can bump into us on the trail.

Ok , I got his cell anyway so I can hear from him when he's fueled and ready to hit the trail . He said meetup at 2 at the country store Probably add 30 min for straggler's to get fuel and to get to the trail [ 2:30 ] so figure out what time you'd like to meet/fuel/trail pass up and run it to end up where their starting at or go to the store for lunch and meet them there . That's your call , i'm just along for the ride Lol.

How long does it take? I can't really remember from the last trip. I've got about a 2.5hr drive myself.
I can't remember either I've only ran it once, I'll find out from Jay or he'll be popping on here later to check thing's out. Might have to thaw some shrimp out and make shrimp salad sammich's [ bubba gump style ] for the run .:D

Yeah let's say 17 and hopefully we'll be in range. If you guys don't want to waste time with air and whatnot driving down the mountain to the country store, we can just meet you at the trail. We can say we'll depart the country store at 2:20. I can't remember if I had cell service at the store, but I did at least right near there.

I'm thinking we'll try to be at the Exxon at 9am. Fuel up, buy the pass and then make for the trail head. So far none of my buddies are gonna be coming.

Well that was a good day !! Left the house before 7am got home 8:30pm-ish. Think I'll buy a memory foam cushion to sit on cus my A$$ resembles an Xterra seat that AIN'T that comfortable to begin with. It was nice to finally meet TerryD after picking his brain for a couple year's and helping Odo to shape shift into it's present form !!! [ Can someone change his moniker to Xterra Whisperer ?? ] Anyone have any thought to doing a strictley NORTH or SOUTH run ? Run flagpole south to north stop and do lunch then convoy to P.M.R and run going same direction then maybe later down the road do it in the opposite direction . Just a thought . We could even get some sticker's made , everyone need's more sticker's. Lol

We may do Flagpole the day after Christmas with the whole family. Not sure if we would do PMR right after (time-wise) but I'm open to the idea.
