    I don't live there, but I'd not expect much.

    Neither the major rain nor wind fields made it out that far to my knowledge.

    I was thinking about hitting that and/or Rothrock but don't have a co-pilot and it's too far/expensive to go solo from where I live. ;^(

    Very dry with slight amount of shale developing in some of the turns. The pockets of mud are mostly gone. Minimal wetness across the system. Most of the briars have been removed from the system.

    Irene really didn't hit the area to hard in terms of rain. Just lots of high winds. So for all you eastcoasters enjoy!

    I'll be getting at least one good ride over the weekend.

    I was over there yesterday with my wife. We thought we would try the west side trails starting with Stoney, dirt surfer, Allegheny, badge, etc (16 miles total for us). We have never done that side before and thought we would try it. This is now possibly my favorite side to ride. There were only 2 people coming out as we went in and saw nobody else. There were plenty of riders coming and going from the parking lot but they were doing the side with Allie, doe, buck, hydra plane, etc.

    This side just seemed to flow really nice. We both decided it was not really hard (like all the trails there IMHO) but it really wore you out. There was only 1 BIG tree down and one small one and conditions were great!

    I'll be at Raystown on Tues afternoon and camping at Rothrock Wed/Thurs if anyone wants to pray the rain away and join on some rides.
