Ride across West Virginia. Well most of it..

We are leaving tomorrow morning for the "Outspoken" ride below. This ride will take us from Charles Town W.Va. to Weston W.Va. 250 miles in 4 days. If you go to the link you will see the route we are taking. If anyone happens to be on any of these roads in the next few days keep an eye out for us. I think this qualifies as a long distance ride. We will be climbing some great mountains along the way. Give us a beep and a wave if you see us. Here's a pic form last years ride:

That's awesome Falcon.!! We made it to Jackson's Mill safe and sound about 2:45 yesterday. We stopped at camps every day along the route. We were greeted at the Mill by the OMC crowd. This was my 2nd year riding and I felt the same thrill as the first year. That 4H spirit is alive and well in WV. It was a great ride. We had 15 riders and a SAG crew of 9. I'll get some pics up when I get some time....

Congratulations on the ride. I lived for a time in Petersburg WV, in Grant Co. Looking at your Q-sheets I see you went through that area. I wasn't riding when I lived there, but I visited Moorefield, Seneca Rocks, and Elkins a number of times. It is a beautiful region, and I'm sure you had some really challenging climbs along the way.
