Here I be! Stumbled on the thread today and think I might be able to mosey over thataway again, still w/o dirty bike, though. But you have no tab to settle; if anything I owe you for that life-saving cuppa on Sunday morning.
Need another "Clint Eastwood" or two?

Put me in the Def Maybe class, pls, GR.

The Midnight Rider.


Well, I've got to run to keep from hidin'
And I'm bound to keep on ridin'
And I've got one more silver dollar

But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

And I don't own the clothes I'm wearing
And the road goes on forever
And I've got one more silver dollar

But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

I would rate my trail 'small bike friendly' and 'big bike possible'. Seriously though, I'll ride it on the GS.

I discovered this weekend that my ambitions are much more than my abilities... and I don't mean in the riding sense (I discovered that was the case long ago). I have a great trail laid out around your property but clearing it is a real S.O.B.! It took me, BigDave, and BigDaveLittle all day to make a relatively small trail; something my 450 would eat for an appetizer. So my dream of having a single track loop established by Ghost Beat the Heat may be a pipe dream. I'll do what I can before then...

Should have come up with this idea back in January or February when the temp was a little cooler. That brush clearing is hard on a OLD FAT BASTARD ! ! ! I have truely figured out now that I need to loose some weight, but not quite like that.

At this point I'm not doing anything on Saturday. I could come up and help, but my chainsaw is down right now.

In, for the camping. I might be able to help create some trails this weekend.

So, any definite work plans out there this weekend? I'm still up in the air waiting for memorial service plans to be made for my BIL, but I need to escape and work off some frustrations and cuss for a while. I'm pretty sure I could get one or the other done with this crowd. Maybe even two birds with one stone.
