We are set to go down the end of June 馃榿. I'm hoping the trails won't be SO crowded by then. But from the sounds of it everything is booked up.

Not been to the seawall in Matewan. I stayed in Matewan once at the Boars Nest my buddy's former co-worker owns it.

Other then that I've stayed in Gilbert. My first year I stayed at the Baby Bear Inn. The last 5 years we stay at and ironically..........the Fire House, lol. We rent both the House and Fire House. I always stay at the Fire House and not in the House, haha. But there's never more then like 5-6 guys in the Fire House at one time when we stay. So like if there's 10-15 guys between the 2 spots that's about it. We are never at capacity.

Oh and I'll be leading this year as my one bud will be in a KRX as he did about 2/3s of the leading when he was on his Griz. Then I would do about 1/4 of the leading with some of the others taking turns for the remainder of the lead. So I'm definitely going to have my Spidey senses set to "HI"!!!!

First pic is the whole town of matewan (Battle of matewan) where the shootout with the Brooks Felts(Same as the Pinkertons)Center of pic (by the river) is the door to the seawall. The Bridge to the right is the Kentucky Border and a good gas station with a good selection of H&M T shirts
Second pic is the gates on the highway that close when needed. 3rd is the seawall door that is suprising easy to open and close with some random people that wanted thier pics sent to themFirst pic is the whole town of matewan.Which is where the shootout with the Baldwins Felts (like the pinkertons) happened

Yup we go into Kentucky from Matewan every year. Cross the Tug, fuel up, grab a bite, and head back.
