Default Midwest US in other!!!

Texas gets their own area and the Middle of the country gets relegated to Other? Doesn't seem fair, but it is funny.

Just another uptight Minnesota Monkey with nothing else to complain about!

Sorry - I am from the "left coast" - what is the midwest?

You have your forum now - now go post something there! And being the grumpus that you are - try not to make the first one a complaint about something!!!

It was funny and gasgasman spent the last decade organizing national enduros. Spending countless hours helping put on national enduros and promoting the sport. I figured he deserved his own turf.

Here is a map to help establish the boundary lines for West vs. East Coast.

Hey Jeff,

How about this idea...
Western USA = West of the Rocky Mountains
Central USA = between the Rocky Mountains and Mississippi River
Eastern USA = East of the Mississippi River
You could also add these definition into the titles to help establish the boundaries.

The issue with "Midwest" is folks in Nebraska are Central not Midwest and I'm more Eastern than Midwest. Rather than creating many segments... how about just using West, Central, and East... kind of like the time zones?

Central sounds like mid-pack to me, so it's where I'm usually at. Perfect.

Jeff, I'd like to post something in the new spot, but I've got nothing useful to add.

Default Upcoming trail ride

I don't think it actually counts if you just move it into the section.

However, in other news. August 19-20 is one of the best trail rides around Minnesota. Located in the Paul Bunyan State Forest near the hamlet of Akeley. At least 100 miles of trails total and most of it is singletrack. I'll get more info when I can find it.
