    Conditions at Patapsco Tomorrow?

    Can someone with experience give me an idea on how bad it will be at Patapsco tomorrow since it will be a thawing day? I'm thinking of heading up.

    Probably. Either winter needs to come back or we need spring a month early.

    How about Gambrill? Would I upset people if I road there? I really have no preference of where to go. I am looking at going my first time out, Monday is my first day off in close to 3 weeks. I work in the basement of a building in the middle of a city. I have a shiny new bike that I would really enjoy riding on something other than a road with salt and grime...

    Head up there to Gambrill state park, as you start driving up the mountain, the first parking area on your right, pull in there, then start your ride across the street following the yellow blazes, the yellow loop is a good start, you can then intersect with the blue too...lots of climbing, and technical rocks, but a blast...have fun, they'll be LOTS of riders up there tomorrow morning probably. There is a trail map mounted at the parking lot.

    Copy that, I will be looking for the yellow and blue trails then. As I would like to go on one of the rides tomorrow, but I will be climbing in the morning and working that night.

    Mr. Wood922, 10 years ago, I would be all about riding blindly into the most difficult trail I could find, but the closer I get to 30, the longer it takes to heal.

    Yea, I didnt think that excuse would fly. After the last hurricane that came through last September a buddy of mine and I went to OC for a day of surf jumping on his jet skis. Well, a 700 pound jet ski with less than 2 feet of separation falling on you from a height of 15 feet feels like a ton of bricks. The guy who owns the jets, 12 years my senior, called me a weenie because I fell off the dang thing from only 15 feet... He said try it from over 20 feet up.


    I also climb with a guy who is 15 years older than me... Dont get me started on falling off of a line when climbing out doors.


    I am just a weenie. I went 2 or 3 years without health insurance and I stopped doing anything fun. I am just now starting to get back into the fun stuff. Therefore Monday will be yellow and blue trails. On Friday I will try to tackle the black trail mentioned above. I should also have another rider with me, to make things more interesting and to take pictures.

    If it's your first ride I'd suggest sticking with the yellow trails. You'll probably have to walk your bike through the majority of the blue IMO.

    Well, it was a serious let down. What was supposed to be an afternoon filled with woods and fun turned into a 7 mile loop around my neighborhood. But the bike is in my truck ready for a trip to a place in Annapolis. Any of you guys heard of Truxton Park?

    Tradestead has been growing rapidly since it was founded in 2004. It is a leading supplier of consumer electronics, IT facilities and accessories direct from China. What makes Tradestead different is that customers can easily order online thanks to the cutting-edge B2B E-commerce platform at www.tradestead.com. Furthermore, customers can enjoy flexible payment options, such as wired transfer (T/T), major credit cards, PayPal, Western Union, and Letter of Credit (L/C), and various shipping choices as you like, including Express Couriers (FedEx, DHL, UPS and TNT), Air Freight, Ocean Freight, EMS, and Postal Parcel. It is noticeable that customers can use their own couriers. Plus, the responsible customer service team helps keep customer loyalty.

    We have an EEOC meeting at work tomorrow. I hope to burn off some of my annoyance energy.

    But I am slightly confused by the china delivery talk...
