back from douthat

back from douthat... great people, great riding, great time... rode mountain-side to brushy hollow with tim, jason, and trevor friday afternoon... festivities around the campfire friday night then wake up saturday morning to see the total domination of mountain bikers in the park... 80+ from MORE in our campground, plus another 15 or so in cabins and a couple dozen from EVMA doing their camping trip in one of the other campgrounds... up the 7 switchbacks of stony run to tuscarora overlook on saturday, groups getting mixed up by the climb and everyone having a good time, then along middle mountain and out of the park and sprint down the road and back into the campgound as the rain was beginning...

then the miracle... instead of the deluge that was expected we get sprinkles on and off all afternoon and a new group forms up for for a quick loop on the lower trails (huffs, blue suck, locust gap) that keeps getting longer... geek out a bit and download tim's helmet cam video to my laptop, people orbiting around the back of my truck watching ricky scream down middle mountain trail... more potluck and campfire fun... round out the weekend with another trip up mountain-side to the epic brushy hollow downhill
