    Nice, sounds good Chris - I just noticed there was an opening on the Hunter Mtn to Lippencott loop ride. Looks like that one hits Racetrack and Teakettle, etc. so I penciled my name down in there for now but will keep my eye open on any additions for sure. Thanks man

    I am planning to drive the 4x4 over Hunter Mt to Teak kettle, I will be taking pavement back via Scotties and the crater.

    If there are any N00B that are going to ride that route and leave before I do at least there will be a sweep coming by to pick up the bike to sell the parts.

    But I don't give rides to hitch hikers, you will have to do a butts to nuts ride out on another persons bike.

    :deal

    Just another option for a group ride so to speak.

    I'd like to get out to the Hot Springs one day - who's going when?
    I'd also like to take another kick at Lippincott if I can tag along with somebody. I guarantee I'll do a better job than last year!

    I may do a ride down there on Thurs or Friday. I also need a soak. Lippencot can be intimidating to the uninitiated, but a steady pace on the pegs will yeald success. Just don't drop it..:norton

    Lippincott kicked my ass last year, the bike laid down 8 or 10 times. This year I'd like to return the favour :deal

    Nice. I'd stop by for a drink but I'll be in San Bernardino that day getting my ARC CPR cert through the SBNF Adopt-A-Trail group.

    That will give you just enough time to get your call. You'll just hvae to check the FCC website to learn it.

    So you want to be " laid down 8 or 10 times" I am sure there are people there that will accommodate.
