Thanks for arranging this Lee, and for everyone that showed up. It was fun checking out rigs, exploring the terrain, enjoying a concert, sharing stories, and getting to know you guys/gals more.

That raccoon is going to haunt me in nightmares the next few nights!

I will upload pics from via ferrata and misc camp shots when I get more time. Had a great time and will look forward to the next rendezvous.

Upzmtn 2018 East Coast Meetup Trail Report

Thanks again tlg for arranging the meetup. We had a great time. It was great meeting everyone, and we hope to see you everyone again in the future. Lots of fun!

Here are some of our pictures from the weekend.



We had a great full moon on the first night. I walked up the road and shot this picture with Nelson Rocks along the ridge.



Saturday morning. View of our campsite.



Saturday we did a mountain bike ride on the North Fork Mountain Trail, (Upzmtn & Shyll). It is a point to point trail along a ridgeline for 24 miles. We did an out and back with 10 trail miles and 5.5 road miles back to the campsite. After being on the trail we decided we could do the whole length, but had no way to contact anyone since cell coverage was non-existent. Thanks to 86Scotty for ferrying us to the trailhead, and taking the picture above.




The trail runs along a ridge with rock outcroppings and great views of the valley below. It was very windy on Saturday.



After we made it back to the trailhead we posed with the elevation sign, 3,580 feet… Yeah!
We decided to ride back to camp. It was all downhill on the road from the trailhead. 5.5 mile downhill!



Stopped along the way back to snap a couple of pictures! Beautiful area!



Hanging out with everyone after our ride Saturday afternoon. Really beautiful day!



A Bluegrass band, Whiskey Victor, entertained us on Saturday evening. Great time hanging out, walking slackline, and playing cornhole. It did rain a little, but it didn't dampen the fun.



We had a little gear swapping on Sunday morning, Wish41 and Gahamby. Pretty impressed with these guys on how fast they changed out the front bumpers on their SMB's!

We really had a great time meeting everbody. Wish it was not so short (a weekend) Hope to see everyone again soon… and hopefully without the raccoon.

Got back late last night...followed the weekend with a cruise through the West Virginia & Virginia backroads, till we met up with the entrance to the 100/ml long Skyline Drive and then about 200/mls of the Blue Ridge Pkwy - Fun drive through those mountains & fantastic scenery.
TLG: EXCELLENT VENUE & have to say that Rock Climb continues to make me feel youthful - It was a great activity!
It was a lot of fun meeting up with all those that attended - we went away with exciting memories, and look forward to the next encounter.
If anyone has a trip planned which encroach's on the Historic Annapolis area, please feel free to reach out - we have a Driveway available that allows easy access to all activities the area has to offer (everything is within a 6 block radius), also an easy 30 minutes from DC if thats of any interest. house is available to you as well. We would get a kick out of seeing any of you again, anytime (Gahamby will have top show up without his tools)
Attached are a couple pictures some may be interested in

Here are some more pics for those interested.
