    I'm down if the rain holds off. Forecast is showing 30% chance right now of raining the morning. Have to be back to the parking lot by 7:30-7:45 so if the pace is on the slower side I'll have to turn back early. Would prefer to be FIP by 5:30 at the latest, but I can do whatever!

    Assuming your meeting at the ramada closest to the DC trailhead?

    Can you promise weather like this morning? Perhaps I'll join up your ride around the water tank at 6AM.... but don't wait for me

    Nice to meet you guys this morning. Sorry I had to bail out early but fun nonetheless. Couldn't ask for better weather on a July morning!

    We ended up just doing the heli-pad, then down goat with a little detour on Corona De Loma before heading back.
    Good riding with you and let's do it again soon.

    Same route I took back as well. It was getting warm towards the end, I was surprised at the number of people heading away from the parking lot!

    Thanks for letting me chase you guys around. I should have gone further before turning around, it only took me 1/2 hour to get back to my truck. Oh well...

    Here's the picture that Cenobite took of the snake that struck my back tire:
