    All I can say is it was 4play's idea...

    We did it 2 years ago, and it went a little something like this.

    Boy this looks like a fun ride. I doubt there will be that much water and it should be HOT!

    Unfortunately I am out, this is a great ride though. I went through Turkey Creek last Thursday and there was quite a bit of water to cross so I am sure you guys will get a chance to splash and cool down...:lol3

    Have fun, I will be looking for the RR.

    Used to be that plates were only necessary where marked, like around the campgrounds up on the rim. In general, forest service roads were legal for unlicensed vehicles. Think of all of the hunters on the quads.

    Now I'm not so sure. You probably have to have an OHV sticker (at least). YMMV

    The old Pueblo contingent plus Roger razor to run sweep. Starting to look like an epic ride!

    There aren't any "Honda Hills" on this ride, are there??:huh
    (I'll bring an extra quart just in case.)
