Count me in. This will be a nice run just before a relaxing weekend at MRV. Not sure yet if it'll just be me, or if I'll have the wife and boy with me too.

Come on guys... it's a holiday. No one else interested in a little pre-MRV shakedown run of the area? I've been on James' runs in the past, and they're awesome. Come out and have a good time!

Be careful when you follow the masses..... sometimes the "M" is silent.

Run is tomorrow! PM me if you need my number.

If your planning on going but haven't committed, please pull the trigger, I would like to have a head count so we know who to wait for. wouldn't want people showing up a little late and the group has left the staging area.

Thanks to all who came out yesterday and to James for leading the group, and for allowing my uncle to join us. 

It was nice meeting you all...we had a great time.

Sorry for going as slow as I did.  This was my first time wheeling as the driver....I was a little nervous!  ;)
