    Great road when not under water or full of deer with a death wish.

    ...we get the regular flyers ...after the fact. Not horrible but the water fails marginally on most tests. Some days they slug it so hard with chlorine I glow for an hour after my morning shower! :lol3

    The dry lake beds do make a great place to ride. This pic was at Pettit Bay.

    What part of skiatook were you guys riding on?? I'm always approaching it from the NE, so I really just tool around the bull creek area. I think I'll have to stretch my piggy's legs today, I've been on the mtb 4 days in the last week so it's time to switch it up.

    Fun riding with you and Rufus today. I started out pretty confident and quick, but when I realized my front wheel bearings were shot (and a major shimmy to match), it sort of got in my head and I slowed down and biffed a few times in corners. Spindly front end + bad bearings = adventure.

    I had fun too. We'll have to do it again after you get your wheel bearings replaced.

    How bad has Gruber gotten? I heard that everything had been run quad wide. I haven't been there since 2006, and '99 or 2000 before that. i remember walking/cutting in most of the current trail back in 95-97. Was it 18 or 23 continuous miles at that point?

    I'm ready to go back to Scipio, I love that place, and Rattle Snake Trail is the bomb.

    Seemed rocky to me. Very little / none of what we rode was singletrack. There appeared to be some "fresher" trails though. We were following some tree flagging for a bit and the trail wasn't really beat down very much.

    What was disheartening (to all three of us) was the recent placement of a shitload of razor wire on the power line right-of-ways. Didn't really make much sense that it was there and might be a safety hazard for spirited riders.

    Maybe Rufus or Jerry could elaborate. They are the Gruber experts, not I.

    Hey Jon, Yeah there is not a lot of single track but there is some if you know where to go. Nice thing is that it is close for me. The big trucks have ruined a lot of it.

    Actually all the trails at Scipio are quad wide. We made all the trails on quads. However when we start making the trails on the new property we are going to try to make it real single track.

    The razor wire is actually on the boundary of what is the legal riding area and the military land. Don't really understand the reason for it though. The military doesn't even use that land.

    Jerry, nothing wrong with a trail being wide enough for a quad to go through. When its wide enough for a quad to pass another quad is when I stop calling it a trail!
