remember that hill behind the shack? its in front of the shack too! should be a good photo moment.. I don't think you got the chance to see that part.

I can only assume that I'll have more that a 3 foot run at it and it won't be covered with moss and leaves. We could always take a tour group on a little side expedition back to that camping spot.

It's not the shack itself you have to worry about,,,,,, just what lies behind it.

And now Winter's back.
Love that brick structure you pulled up to. Any history to it?

It's our old school house/shop. Built in 1890.

Registration is closed!

So we have our group of riders for 2013...lots of familiar faces and a bunch of new ones

Maybe time for some pics and videos to see what you have in store

This vid is a couple of years old but everything you see is in the second third of day one




Should be "interesting" to see what some of trails look like after 100+ people ride through it

On day three....37 notable water crossing on this one trail...I highly advise walking them first











Day one about 3 hours into the ride this little gem of a mud hole.....





Day one about 5 hours into the ride....

















Day one, after the 3pm cutoff....I suspect "most" teams wont get this far and will have to take the track that heads directly to the campground. For those teams that start early and make the cutoff....you have one heck of a great 2-4 hour trail in store. No turning back once you get on this trail as your in the middle of nowhere with NO bailouts














Team work








Looks like May will be nothing but pre riding

Email will be sent to everyone within a couple fo weeks with gps files, maps, info


Cya in June
