    I think you should wait for first snow. At the least, a good rain.

    I here tell of an Alder Creek Trail within a drainage or three, I'm sure if it were real it would look very similar to the last picture I posted...

    Hey Grub!
    Me neither, I was J/K-ing. I don't think Hell is looking out for me.:lol3
    I'm hoping to get out your way after I get back from Baja (3 weeks from now), are you going to be around?

    WTF Tony! I thought that you when you got back from Baja you were going to make my bike "that looks like it fell of a trailer going down the highway" functional again!!!!!!!:lol3

    Grub, I'd be careful taking cross-country on a ride he barely knows how to ride.
    Although when he led our last adventure; we told him to go the wrong way and enduro-ince, after he had caught him by waving arms across a big drainage said "We got lucky, 'Cause neither of us would've ever caught him!" Truer words have never been spoken!:deal

    I tried to follow him a couple of years ago for a little while :nah

    That's the beautiful about riding with him in my hood, he doesn't know his way around so he can't get too far in front of me :lol3

    Hey Jeff...I was looking at your pic, and I thought...that's no trail, and why are these morons trying to go down it. This morning while drinking my coffee, I'm looking at the pic again and realize that's us trying to go down that rubble pile. And yes...I'm a moron.:lol3

    Hey...at least I rode the last 20 feet of that stretch.:lol3 Man, I look back with fond memories of riding that big loop again after 22 years of absence...except for running out of water. Thanks for letting me tag along.
