Yeah we moved the rock back, and this was on Saturday. It was cold, but still a good time! And I'll let you know the next time we go up there.

I had my buddy air me down to 10 psi, but while airing that one down, somehow the valve stem came out, and lost some more air, beyond the 10psi, and I forgot about filling it back up to 10psi until after we left. Lol

Potts closes each January when hunting season ends. Last day of hunting was Jan. 4th so the gates should be closed sometime tomorrow.

I've got a busy wheeling schedule for the year but I'd love to get down there at least once this Spring. It's a long drive from NoVA.

Please post your dates once your plans firm up.

I'm going to try to make it to Harlan at least once this year and would love to go to rausch creek. But idk depends on a lot of different things.

i just called the ranger office, and she said that the plan is to open on the 1st. but to call just to make sure!! and it would be great to get a few of us together and go to Harlan or RC. i'd do either (or both) and my schedule is pretty flexable....

Sorry for the late response. I don't check the forum very often. Looks like we're not going Saturday, not sure when we are going to go. Check out the seven hills jeep club. We go a lot of places during the summer, and we're organized. I'll keep you posted on our next date for the trip.
