    Weather is looking better for that weekend. If nothing else a few degrees cooler would be nice. Will be a good day to explore Dupont.

    I am getting dragged to a wedding in GA involving 2 people I have never met, one of whom is a distant relative of my wife. She owes me big time for this one.

    If they've never met you why do you have to go? Just find someone to pretend to be you :thumbsup:

    Weather looks to be a million times better then last year. If you missed out on the online registration you can still show up at Guion farm tomorrow morning and get in on the fun.

    Price is 45.00 for SORBA members and 55.00 for non members.

    Thanks to everybody participating for your support. Thanks also to DuPont state forest for the great trails. And a special thanks to all the volunteers who make this happen.

    Trying to make my mind up...
    Edit: Please note there is no participant camping associated with this event. Don't want to cause any confusion and should've just e-mailed m separately...

    I'm camping tonight (friday) mainly so I can be at the registration super early 7:00AM I'm not much of a morning person so the shorter commute the better. I think a few others are also camping tonight and Saturday night. I can't stay on Saturday night.

    Camping is a perk for volunteers. If you'd like to volunteer and camp or just volunteer send me an email at [email protected]

    thanks to everyone at PAS for a great day!
    found the course to be poorly marked (or not marked at all) at several key intersections and thus miles 23-44 were filled with doubt and confusion yet my wife and i had blast nonetheless. we hope PAS raised the $ they needed!
    we'll be out for next year's event, no doubt!
