Sorry 'bout that... I thought I'd sent it to you already. I'll go ahead and post it here for all to see. These are the approximate number of miles of each route of the tour:

Route A--77
Route B--48
Route C--81
Route D--88
Route E--61
Route F--69
Route G--53
Route H--59

Dave,
How many for Route Z? I'm bringing a novice along, and he'll choke on the ridearounds on D, I know.
T is 15 miles, I know. I'm going to give that one a try for the view at the top.
AND, are you going ot put the latest revisions on the website, or do I need to write ya and have ya send 'em?
I'm yer Magellan user from Burlington, since you might not recognize the handle.

I clocked it on software, and the "Z" route is ~7 miles, and cuts ~15 off "D"

Sideroute-T is closer to 12 miles, but you must remember that you have to come out the same way you came in, so it's actually a 24 miles sideroute in total.

No, Route-Z Detour is 12 miles of road travel. Even if you could fly it like a crow, it would still be 8.5 miles. Also, it cuts off approximately 24 miles of Route-D, not 15.

Not sure how you came up with your numbers Hammer, but perhaps this says something for the useability of Garmin's software over Magellan's?

As to updated files, you'll need to email me as per directions on the update page on the GripTwister Tours Website.

Hammer, I should also mention that if your novice friend will have problems with the washouts, then he may also have a difficult time on the "hill-climb" on Route-D as well. If in doubt, you may want to take Detour-Y, which will detour you around both obstacles. This is part of the update that's available to you via email.

Dave

route Y problem

hey guys,

Just back from a water logged return from Quinault. We'll post later about the ride, but a quick heads up an Route Y. It's closed. About 2 miles onto the dirt, the road is all torn up and there is construction machinery all over. Batfink and I tried to find a way around, but to no avail.

Thanks for the notice Luca. I've added that to the updates page. Looking forward to your ride report!

Oh that hill

I remember that hill now that I see the pictures of it, the branches hang real low in some parts too. It was wet and sketchy when Dave and I rode it last summer. I had the fuggin Metzeler Saharas on which weren't preferable for that section!

There was a great lookout closer to the top as I recall.

Let's see some more pics!

Here's the one of BajaDave injuring his back.

I got my #'s just quick drawing them on a map. They were estimates at best.

As to updated files, you'll need to email me as per directions on the update page on the GripTwister Tours Website.

Another revision you will want to note as on Route "A", there is an active logging side blocking the 2441 road. It is thoroughly blocked, too, with not only a rubber-tired mini-tower, but MANY down trees.
If you go back down the hill to the 24 road, you can bypass to the 2480 and get to the Hamma-Hamma and resume the tour. I have no idea how long they might block the road, but since it isn't a main through-fare, no one I talked to up there seemed to care much. They've gotta be out of there by next season. I took the opp to go up to Jefferson trail. If it had been clearer, there would have been some great photo opps. As it was, there was a pretty good view!

660 miles, lotsa fun, really tired butt! I need a Renazco!
