I'm guessing the U.

Thank you, Infidel, for all the hard work. With pit support like that racing is easy.

We're going to Mesquite this weekend, but not to get ready to race...

INFIDEL/STARSKEY: do you have gpx for the route you did?

anyone else have gpx for anything down there? I want to get over to the "Angle Fire" rock formations, but the route that i'd scoped out was closed.

GardenGrrrrl and I are leaving Friday mid afternoon and camping through Monday early afternoon... come one, come all.

That's kinda an insult to women.

More like a guaranteed date. Listen close, sometimes
you can hear Wyoming boys slip and say "Flock Ewe!" when they're mad.

It's always on their mind. The term "getting a little trim" comes from
shearing the sheep.

Infidel, we are just teasing you. It's cool. I just feel bad for the ugly
sheep cause they've got Infidels bitch written all over them.

Sometimes we call them Bring Your own Ewes......BYU's.....so be careful........

KEV........Starskey was the gps guy in Parashant/Grand Canyon Monument. I'm sure he'll share tracks but they really are not needed for the two rides we did. Send him a PM, I don't know how often he logs in.........or lurks.......

Same plan here... I'm planning to ride on Friday, so if you don't mind riding with a novice or two...

Starskey, do you only teach in Ogden? If so, how many training sessions does it take to complete the course?

Where do we sign up?

I may be able to drive/ride to ogden a couple times a week for a while. Would be nice to learn from a fellow rider.

Pluric, don't think I overlooked that "Wyoming car pool" comment. There is no such thing; I mean there is no other state where the "big truck small &$%#" principal holds more true so man-on-man contact is strictly prohibited. Plus the sheep are more friendly and they will call you the day after...bahhhhhh bahh...so I've heard.

Actually I just moved up to the amateur class so take that with a grain of salt: Give me a call and we'll hook up and ride. I'll PM you my #. Should be a good race, I'm excited to get back out there.

It's done through the Red Cross in Ogden. Starskey is just their bitch...er...I mean, instructor.

Anyone know if it's a bit drier out west by Knolls? Thinking about going out there friday. I need to get the XR6 out for some post rebuild testing before next week.

http://www.wunderground.com/US/Regio...SnowDepth.html (snow map)

http://www.flashearth.com/ (daily satellite imagery)

These would suggest the knolls is still snowed in, and watching the weather, it's been 10 degrees colder there than SLC recently...
