Travel plans are set. I will be arriving Little Coal River Wednesday July 2 around 1.30 PM. I intend to ride that day on LCR. Thursday July 3 is planned for Ivy Branch. When I load up there, I will be Beckley bound. Burning Rock on Friday July 4. Hampton Inn's rule!!

Don't make me ride alone!!  Rolling Eyes

Nope, not banned. More like ~chained~to work duty. Hope you have your normal good time when you make the trip to The North Country. LCR trail system has come a long ways from it's early days of being nearly 100% green and flat. It always was a fun place to ride, but now it has plenty of variety to go along with the fun factor. And since it is Up North, the cool temps will be a plus in July. If she is willing, I would really like to see a photo of your Hawaiian lady friend on your ride report. Your last report didn't include any trail shots of her, and that really bummed me out. Laughing Laughing

The Hula Hussie is going PP. LOL It will just be me and her on Wednesday, but I do have one joining me on Thursday and 2 on Friday. Maybe a new goal should be to have her 'pose' in front of all 8 trailhead signs this year. Burning Rock too!! The stories she would be able to tell... Twisted Evil 

I believe I can smell it too Sportsman!!

Will do Ruger. It is so much easier to load up staying at a hotel. There will be loading and unloading once there; but one bag, with the riding gear on the passenger side of the cab. No gas jugs, sleeping bag, pillow, food, coffee pot, foreman grill, etc... Just typing about that stuff tired me out.  Laughing 

I'll probably check in one evening. Should begin the ATV riding portion of this trip about 2 PM tomorrow at Little Coal. Have a great 4th!!

BYE!!  Cool

Made it!



Got in 32 miles on LCR today. The Hussie seemed happy.




We did have one discussion about where we were. I kept telling telling her we are here but she had to see for herself. Women...



Had dinner with Roger and Rocinate at the Quakersteak. Good times!!! Wink

We made it here today. I'm so glad James decided to ride with me yesterday and today. On LCR, we saw one group of 4 and 3 SXS's. Today on Ivy we saw 2 SXS's on our way back to the trucks. I would have been alone. Anyway...

Ivy Branch hasn't made it to the signs yet.



If you didn't know where to turn you might have problems. Finally a sign.



They have cabins at the trailhead now.



Trail 77 is awesome.





There is video of us coming down that tiny waterfall. James will have to post that.



A rock formation.



And the Hula Hussie.



I don't know if she felt strong or tall.



There is a story here, but let's just say avoid T-75. Can you see the winch cable?



James took me via highway 3 back to the interstate.



And we paid our way to Beckley.



Burning Rock tomorrow!! Life is good.

I love it! Lee, you ain't right! Love that too, though. Great report. Hula Hussie is back!!

The creek bed trail looked super cool. Thanks for the pics and details. Kudos on The GPS/TOPO screen shot.

 Very Happy
