This will probably a common theme for me for the next few weekends, but things should free up a bit come mid June.

That is 3 hours to Rausch creek 18 May. We're talking about Peter's Mill on 25 May, so 8AM should be fine.

That would be great, we haven't yet made plans where to meet, however, I live in Prospect Hills, on the opposite corner from Loudoun county high school. Dan, is this cool?

Peter's mill is right outside Edinburg. Usually we meet right off 66 at the Sheetz in Gainesville. Depends on who is going. If it's just us Leesburg guys the the shorter route is to go out to Winchester, so a better meeting place might be the Sheetz in Leesburg.

Rapidan WMA is great for kids.
Easy trail and lots of places to stop and let the kids play in the water.
I like the Middle River Tract best

Rapidan Wildlife Management Area (WMA)

Not so great during hunting season, but great for camping otherwise.

Hey c3j3, are you around leesburg?

Dan, I say we meet at the Sheetz in Leesburg, I see you at 8:00 am in one week, hopefully, we'll see c3j3 there too.

I know you're bringing coffee, any suggestions or requests for me to bring? Is there be anyplace along the trail we can have a campfire and cook some hot dogs or someplace close we can grab lunch?

I'm in Woodbridge so meeting in Leesburg is going out of the way.

I can catch up to everyone somewhere on 81 maybe? If you guys can stop for me?

I don't know my way around out there so if I can't meet up with you guys I'm not going to make the trip at all.

I'll bring coffee. We usually just grab snacks and bring lunch with us, usually stopping on the trail to eat. I don't know if we can build a campfire anywhere up there. We have to stop in Edinburgh to get permits for using the trail. The cost I think is $5.

As for what to bring. Do you have a CB or hand held radio. Other than that, your stock Jeep will do fine.

What route are you taking? If you're going down 66 to 81 an alternate place to meet is Sheetz in Haymarket.

Yeah I have a portable cb from the 90's I used when I used to four wheel. I also have a couple older 5 mile FRS's I'll check to see still work.

Since its just is leaving from leesburg would you rather leave for the high school? It's not a madhouse on Saturday morning like sheetz is.

AM, PM. Close enough!

We'll be meeting you at Safeway, it's pretty close to my house.

Just in case, as we have the stomach bug in our household right now, I'll send you a private message (once I figure it how to do so) the morning of. We should be in good shape though, took the 9 year old to the ER this morning because we were concerned she was dehydrated, however, she was only mildly dehydrated and now seems to be on the mend. Just hope no one else gets it since we all plan on going!

I'll bring Bo my hand helds in case none of the others have one.

Dan I hate to bail, however, I have a house full of girls with the stomach bug. I thought my oldest was on the mend, however, she's feeling poorly again this morning and now my wife and youngest are sick!

I think I'll stay at the office for the next few days so I don't get it too! :0)

Again, sorry to bail! I don't bail unless there's no other choice!

Have a good time and let's try to do it again late June or July!

I was planning on going, but been in bed for 2 days with some kind of respiratory illness. Was hoping to feel better this morning, but I don't. I have to say that I'm out, unfortunately.

This will now be the second trip I'm missing due to someone's illness.
