Looks like a few of us are gonna be heading to Deal's Gap this weekend to enjoy the nice weather and get some good riding in. We aren't sure of the details of where we are staying yet, but will probably know tonight.

Just a head's up if anyone wants to join us.

Yeah, let's do that. I would like to go if the weather cooperates at all. I have absolutely nothing to do this weekend.

I have lots to do but nothing I cant put off another couple of days . If that weather system looks like it will get past the mountains before Sat. morning then I say we go for it ! Looks like GaTech is about to beat Duke !:lol :lol

I would say Brown Mtn . but we have been there . How about either Brushy Mtn in NC or Durhamtown you have talked about ? If we met fri. night , ride all day sat . , I could get home sat night and still get some things done sun . that would be pretty cool . But if we had to because of weather , we could leave early sat. morning , meet at lunch ride , camp out or get a room if its cold , ride a little sun and go home ?

Meeting Friday night is fine with me wherever we go. Any of those 3 places is fine with me. If we did Durhamtown, then the 2 guys that I rode with a couple of weeks ago may join us, but I haven't talked to them. Whichever place you want to go is fine with me. Not sure if Brown Mtn. is open or not though. It might be closed until April 1st. Most of the Ga State ORV trails are that way. Durhamtown does has 2 cool MX tracks and a harescamble trail. But it really doesn't matter to me.

Just checked www.georgiaoffroad.com and it says that Brown Mtn is closed from Jan. 1-March 15th. So I guess that one is out.

How far are you from Brushy ? I am three and a half to four hours . I am about 5 hrs from Durhamtown . I think Durhamtown looks like a really cool place but it is a bit of a hike for me . lets talk again tom . and look at the weather . I'm gonna crash now !( go to bed that is ) :lol

I am guessing I am around 4 hours from Brushy. We can look at the weather tomorrow and decide what we want to do.

I just looked on Brushy's website. If you are camping you have to get there before they close. And that is 1 hour before dark. So if we were to go there we would have to get there saturday. I am sure Durhamtown is the same way. We can just look at the weather tomorrow and go from there. It may get better for the Gap.:dunno

I would be better off with my responsibilities if we wait one more weekend , The main reason I wanted to trythis weekend is that I thought the weather was going to :rock but now it doesnt look that way !? :(
