    Slatyfork Shuffle 2014

    It's been a number of years since I could make the pilgrimage from FL to WV but I want to make a "real" bike trip this year. I know its earlier to speak of these things, but I'll be watching for details to drop. Ive read posts about it "shuffling" to other trail systems, thats cool I'll figure it out and aim to make it.

    How many of the originals still hang around? Davis, Chili, Whitt, Hecklerboy, Rick, numerous others I can't think of at the moment.

    Just keep me in the loop, I'll try to figure out a way.

    Well not sure how many of the other originals will be in for a shuffle, however the word is out. I'll push it some. Davis is now up in PA, Chilli is around Frostburg, geeze Whitt has a couple kids now and not for sure where he is living, although I still have contact with them all as well as Hecklerboy. I'll start some feelers out. We were trying to decide when to have it and the last note I threw out we were looking sometime in July.

    Would be great to have it in Slatyfork again.

    Sign me up. Funny. I look at this site for the first time in months and see this at the top of the page....

    Try to drag Rick up with you. I'll start working on chili. Will need to pry HB and CaptPhun off of their motorcycles. Whitt's back east around DC somewhere after they threw him out of Montana.

    i spoke to Rick today and planted the notion of a Slatyfork Shuffle trip. He sounded excited and hopefully could make it. With this early planning its hard not to make it. no matter how we've all had to grow up and become responsible, irresponsibility just takes planning now!

    Just reliving some of the past 10 years of Shuffling in Slaty. Googled "Slatyfork Shuffle" and hit the image tab. Oddly, saw more pics of people riding rather than just drinking. Although, I did see one pic of some moron drinking a can of Iron City at the overlook along Cow Pasture Trail. Good times. Keeping fingers crossed for 2014.

    Well, since I only live 20 miles from Tea Creek campground now I have no excuse. Hopefully my knee will hold up. Haven't been on the bike since I pulled a ligament in my knee last year.
    I'll be getting the MTB out soon and giving it a try.

    One of my local watering holes had Iron City as a "premium, limited time offering" a couple of weeks ago. They were $4 a can. I told the owner that I probably paid for the case with the 3 I bought. At least he had no idea it was the cheap, local beer of Pittsburgh. I didn't mind as it was reminiscent of great times.

    Lets do this thing!

    This just in….

    Long time regular and all around fun guy CHILI is returning for this year's shuffle! He promises to be the fat and slow version that we've all come to know and love, not the latter skinny and fast version who was such a d!ck.

    So let's set a date. I know everyone needs some notice for vacation days and such. Can the weekend of July 25th work? I would likely arrive Thursday afternoon. I'll call Rick and muscle him into this. What's everyone else think?

    I spoke to Rick it looks like he's in. It certainly works for me. I hope we can book this thing. I'm looking forward to getting the heck out of FL for a little while.

    How's the date looking for everyone?

    As in the past, I will bring a refreshed for 2014 official Slatyfork Shuffle decal. As you know these are incredibly rare and highly sought after due to the very limit production of the artist. I would like to get an idea of who is trying to make it so I can provide one for each of us.

    I look forward to seeing everyone and hopefully a few new folks as well.

    Happy Trails to you until then,

    Ok, so that is the first time I've attached pics sorry for the double images. Would anyone planning to attend be interested in Koozies? I'll pay for stickers as I have in the past just to commemorate the event. Koozies cost about $6 each with a small break at 10 and 20. If you like the kookie idea and want one let me know. Ill order them and settle up at the Shuffle. So who's in?

    Lost my 2003 Shuffle decal when I traded in the XTerra. Still have the second one you brought, still on the vinyl. Koozie? DAMN STRAIGHT! Sign me up for 2 of them summ*****es. Already have some of the Appalachian Powerdrink stocked away, and should be able to get much more upon returning to Pokie. And I'm bringing some tequila and cachaca, too. Wish I had a propane powered ice maker.

    I'll have ice, do you worry. I just got a new "Grizzly" cooler. Its one of those 14 day kinda super insulated things, its pretty bad@$$.

    I haven't heard back about conflicts, so thats that! Its unofficially set for July 25th-27th.

    I still plan to arrive on the 24th but will have to book out early on Sunday. Ill be getting my shuffle on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
