Eric,

How technical is the ride? I may bring the boy along and some of his friends.

Bill - this is the ride the UTMA did earlier in the year. They listed it as "Intermediate". I think if they're comfortable riding in the woods they'll be fine.

Eric,

BTW thanks for the indictment on the Dumb Crashes thread. I had to defend myself after I saw that :). As for the smell it's still there. My leg is slowly getting better. I think I actually sprained my ankle pretty good. The swelling hasn't gone down yet and there is virtually no lateral movement. I'll live though. I had to miss my hockey game this week because I couldn't get it into my skate. I haven't missed one of those for years. The funny thing is I haven't had this many cuts, dings, & bruises in the last 8 years of riding combined (8 years ago is when sanity kicked in). And this was just one ride. Hopefully I'll be back in form next time.

Doug

P.S.--I won't be able to make Hobble Creek tomorrow. Another family reunion that I had forgotten about.
