    Thanks, It was a fun ride. Actually, my battery died just in time to miss me falling over in the next section. Thank goodness for the group I was with to help me pick up all that weight.

    That looks more like Pannell Road down by Natural Dam and Lee Creek.

    You Know, I think you may be right about that after looking at the time stamp.

    At our meeting last night we set a tentative date for next year to be the second weekend in October 2017. In January we'll probably put something back up in the Rallies forum.

    Also we haven' t heard any requests for tracks... distance, difficulty, something you want to see? we mentioned making up some short tracks for those that want to get in a short ride before they leave Sunday or if they get in later and want an evening ride.

    Now is the time to ask so we have all year to put it together and modify it.

    Hey Big Deal, that short track idea is a good one. If you guys can think of a route or two that would be a couple of hours out and back. I really cannot suggest one as I am not that familiar with the area as a whole. But maybe a short run to a waterfall or a good ridge top view point?

    Isn't this Pannell Road and not Warloop? This looks just like Pannell Rd and I don't remember Warloop having quite this many technical sections. Just asking.

    Wait a minute. My wife and I rode Pannell a couple of years ago and she didn't have any problem. I always read that Warloop was very technical so we never went there because I figured it would be too much for her. Are the reports on Warloop exaggerated?

    Very much so! There is one rock ledge that can be troublesome if riding uphill but that is about the only thing that is.
