My wife will be out of town, I will have had two graduate mid-terms that Thursday, and Ill want to ride!

Im VERY interested in Purgatory, that place was just mindblowing. I couldnt believe it. But if someone is able to ride but not there Ill be more than happy to go elsewhere.

I wondered if it would be risky riding there during the work week, that's too bad.

Well, I can make it out to the lake too I guess, what would you think of Brookhaven? I havent been out there in ages it feels like. Plus Ive never seen any photos from Brookhaven, Id like to get some of that spot.

Really?! Youre willing to drive that far down? That's awesome. I guess it's only about 2.5 hours for you, only an hour more than me. Cool, cool.

i think i am retarded.. cause i just read all the posts and was confused as to where the ride was... i think i got it figured out, friday 5ish @ grapevine... right... i've been riding lots, i just got back from riding @ brookhaven, i kinda got jap-slaps/touch-hops/frontwheel-taps/McGuiver-ups/whatever-the-hell-you-wanna-call-em figured, i was doing them on some rocks earlier (consistantly). i guess around 30 - 33 inches.

I cant go Saturday Steven. :(

I marked Purgatory and Grapevine Lake in my mapping program and decided to cruise the areas for more possible areas, it's always hard to tell if anything is a rock or dirt, but I think I found one spot, but it's most likely a big dirt pile from building the stadium near it, but who knows, it might be where they got the big rocks for Purgatory from, see image:


Here are images of Purgatory and Grapevine Lake's shore:




I cant wait to ride! :eek3danc: But like Kamil said, tests suck, I have two midterms to go before riding. :rant2:
