yeah, I have my dates mixed up. I meant to say that if anyone doing BUMP that weekend wanted to go I can move the dates. I was doing XTERRA but plans changed. guests coming into town that weekend and I can't change it. So I will be doing XTERRA First Coast in Jacksonville in July.

My road trip might have a change of plans. People are suggesting I go to Racoon Mt. instead. I'm actually thinking of doing a big loop as follows:
Chicopee ? in Gainesville, Ga then Blankets Creek then Racoon MT, then Oak MT then Swayback on the way back to Pensacola. Doable??????

Any takers. sounds like a good road trip.

Sounds awesome, but I can't swing it right now... too much going on.

On an unrelated note, give me a call if you want to hit the U Sunday morning.

Yeah Los, we did Raccoon Mtn and Mulberry Gap a month ago. Two totally different types of riding; so it's all about what you want to ride. MG is much more elevation change: long, steep climbs and super fast, long decents. The setting is more "mountain forest" feeling than 'Coon Mtn. If I had to rate it on the difficulty-o-meter, I would say it's an 8 out of 10. It would be higher if the trails weren't so smooth.

'Coon Mtn is very comparable to Oak Mountain in terms of elevation change and mileage, but I thinks it's more fun than OM. More single track than OM and far less wear on the trails, just make sure you do the loop clockwise. I would give it a 6 of 10 on the difficulty-o-meter

BTW, I wish I could go. You're trip sounds like a blast. I think I'm going to try to do a 3 day weekend later in June to do 'Coon Mtn, whitewater rafting, and either Tanasi or OM on the way back.
