PT or Mukilteo? I'll check it out. If all goes well with the cleaning, I should have enough power for a real headlight and other fun stuff. Has anybody tried a Cyclops bulb in the stock housing?

It's the descent into Ardenvoir that's shut down. There are signs and personnel guarding the access. We came up Merry canyon to 7804 (great singletrack) to 7801. That's where we met them.

Just got turned around at French corral. No way into Ardenvoir. We had to backtrack to Chumstick canyon and take 97 to Chelan. All routes are closed up in that area.

I should rephrase that. Turn out the idle screw (not the mixture screw) until the RPMs drop back to normal. Then fine tune the mixture screw.
