Default It's been awhile..Richmond Laboratory Sharps

I recently moved, so that's always fun ..and busy.

After a little Maprika work I got access to a new spot not too far away so I rode my mountain bike there and that worked great.

Didn't have a whole lot of time so I just a little scouting today and after a little off roading it I think I found the area I was looking for so I will be going back for sure.

I'm pretty sure you will need some help with that site. What time do you need me to be there.

I like how you're toting your shovel. I found a site where I live that is only accessible by bike so I'll be doing the same soon.

I used some McNett Tactical Camo Form wrap which you can reuse to strap it back on for the ride home and next time you go also. Maybe Velcro straps would work but I think it would clank and slide around , the wrap holds it firm so it doesn't slide around or anything..it becomes part of the bike basically.

duct tape would work fine also.
