My runs are pretty set too. Friday will be a run down a re-explored road I ran 20 years ago. The pre-run group re-ran it this spring and proved to be a great trail with numerous creek crossings, a little playground of rocks and a more serious rock trail that has not yet been run. There's a bypass for that so those that want to watch can do so. The trail I suspect is about 0.5 miles long with an unknown number of challenges.
One we conquer that we have a trail called No-Bridge. As the name implies there isn't a bridge in sight, they were all removed with the logging stopped. between 8 and 12 missing bridges and some pretty steep grades down to the creek and back up out. Once we finish that time permitting we have a simply way out to Hwy 17 but that make for 30 miles road trip home. I'd rather explore and find the connector back over to Carp River which will cut the road miles in half and give us a few more options for other obstacles.

Saturday is much simpler with a trip to the Mine and Lions back if we can't fit that one in on Friday due to time.

With the rain they have had I wonder if some of those creek crossings will be raging river crossings.

So what is the final tally on rig count?
