I've got lots o stuff on maps/gps out that way, but don't know the conditions although some looks like it could be burly. I join ya when you're ready, and i'll help with navigation... although i've not charted your direct route...
I've got 5.5 gal and am going to put a koplin on the back. Also my wife says she will drop gas or meet me to give me fuel. I just need to ride dirt for 12 hrs with min stops. Riders welcome for all or part of it.

here's a bit of helmet cam video from last weekend. (9MB) 8/9 hr day, very few breaks... fuzzy head when done.

FROG 5ml --> Delta: 12 hours of punishment is my regular weekend... let me know if you'd like company.

Hopefully we can find some slower more technical stuff so it's not all 100 plus mph. How about sat or sun?

5mile to Delta (and back?)

Sat or Sun may work out for me... once we get to Delta, do we just return home the same way, or are you planning to get picked up?

let me know the plan and i'll see if my other weekend plans are on or not.

I was planning on turning around but the wife and I are going camping in Cherry Creek so I could ride down but won't come back till sun night. Your more then welcome to camp with us or if you want to ride around cc I'll be doing that after we get down there. So leave SLC at what time?? How many miles is it from five mile to eureka?

5mile to Delta

Not sure on the mileage from 5m to eureka, but around 30 miles.

When do we leave? Saturday at 9?... doesn't matter to me.

Sorry I missed all the fun, it seems that my boss thinks it is more important to be on the sales floor (tis the season) than having a girl in a jock strap pass me. Congrats to all, who gets to wear what in the next race? Quite an outfit Dumbgirl, but I think the pouch on the strap should have been much larger!
