    Hmmm, revenge of the squid filter trail and drinking beers at Grumpys or go drink Happy's beer closer to home?

    We ran into some guys who were lost in the L-town hills yesterday, actually in an area we call the Bermuda Triangle...they were trying to get to Barstow but those 30' waterfalls were making progress slow.....

    really nothing to see, it did not look like they got too much rain or snow, we only saw 1 small patch of snow @ 7100'!
    although the ground was nice and moist, temps in the 40-50's w/clouds blowing over-saw NO ONE all day and only 2 sets of tracks!

    all the shortcuts up the mountian have been fenced in or blocked off by logs:cry


    we came across this strange structure!
    it looks like they burned tires in it long ago, i found tires all around with 1968 dates on they-anyone have any more info!

    Great ride, great conditions to. ST all day. At 8100 ft some clouds came in, temps dropped to low 40's and it gets darker quick. We followed an awesome single track the wrong way for quite some time. It was getting later in the day and I gotta admit, I started worrying. I was thinking about the Verplank adventure. Happy Trails to the rescue with his new 376c. Guided us off the mountain. Whew. Just goes to show that the Utes can grab ya and hold on till it's dark and cold.

    What is the plan?
    Hap and Kap want to do trail work for MTBers? Isn't that the whiskey creek day?
    I'm thinking Sat on the Green side and Sun on the P side? Whatcha think?
    Kabins are cheaper than that honeymoon suite, camping even more cheaper.

    I can't get there until Saturday night. I'm riding Sunday and Monday. I think we should all just do motel/cabin in town to be closer to bars and restaurants for post-drinking stumbling made easier. :freaky

    Razr and I will be rolling in around 8-8:30 Saturday night.
