I might be moving to the DC metro area soon too, depending on how my 2nd interview goes next week for a federal job. Snow and ice are not an issue for me, but moving away from real mountains and desert will be hard to do again. But it sounds like there is a good community out there and fun trails.

It'll be later this year before I have the time to do much. Life's pretty busy at the moment but give me a shout and we'll get out and explore some. Are you more into challenging trails or just being outside?

Be ready for slick, tight trails. Just a touch of rain in this red clay and even your M/Ts are slicks if you aren't spinning them hard enough to clean them.

Always test mud holes you're unfamiliar with. They may be 3" of dirty water or 3' of the nastiest gumbo mud you can think of. Never take either for granted either, some "good ol boy" may have chucked it full of fire wood chunks trying to unstick his pickup.
I'll definitely be in touch. I'm used to tight, slick trails. The PNW has much for the same. I enjoy challenging trails, but I prefer if they afford access to a good view or quality campsite. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Thanks for the welcome, and yes I'll certainly miss the easy trail and backwoods access of the west, but...it is what it is.

Yeah dude, I had to leave WA unfortunately. Starting a new adventure out east. Post plenty of pictures of Fortune Creek this year so I can live vicariously through you.

Similar to my sentiments. It is painful leaving the west, but there is a community here that will help me make the best of it.
