    Those root heaves are off the hook. I considered ordering custom yard signs saying “Free Vasectomy Ahead”, “All Terrain Vehicles Only”, “Have Your Dentist’s # Handy”, “Helmet Buckled?”, “Hold On Tight”, “Secure Loose Change Now”, “Who Needs Bouncy Castles”, “Bend Those Knees, Please!”, etc. Still may do it

    So the project to re-pave the Bluemont Trail (not the bit between Bluemont and Wilson as I think many were discussing above) has started in earnest today (there were "trail closed" signs all last week, but the trail never seemed closed). Today the bit from Wilson to N Emerson was completely closed and re-rounte and they closed the trail down to Illinois (I think that one). They claim they will be done in a week to 10 days. They are re-routing in three batches, but no idea how long each will be.

    Trail has been repaved from the W&OD Trail to Wilson Boulevard.

    And now the paving is complete. A wonderful smooth ride from end-to-end on the Bluemont Trail
