If Sam's not been to Hemmingway, it might be a good place to go because Ed's 650 will feel like a 1200 at Pickle Butte - it's more of an MX style park and a DS park. At least at Hemmingway, one can ride around the whoopdies, and find alternate routes to various destinations. That's one of the reason's I like Hemmingway - there are several ways to get to any given destination there.
I'm game for Sunday afternoon around 2? That'll give it a little time to warm up, and provide me an opportunity to hang with the fam in the morning?
Ride your own ride & enjoy your ride.
