    Ditto chica, ditto! I had a blast following/leading you around Mills Creek. That single track was some pretty tight stuff. I tested out my bark busters a few times. :ricky

    Thanks Newner for leading us around the woods Saturday. I had a blast riding with you, dirty dog, tomski, & dirt 2007.

    I rode a total of 593 miles on the WR with 313 being on Wednesday.

    You guys throw together a pretty good shindig. Good riding, good peeps, and good food. Doesn't get any better than that (except for maybe a little less trail mayhem).

    Thanks guys, I had a blast.

    Awesome Carlt, you found a little bit of our good stuff. It's hard to believe how grown up it already is. Come back in the fall or winter and the riding is much better.

    Nice MAgoo,
    For the record, I was up front exploring the trail, moving logs, and then coming back to help and make everyone had an idea what was up ahead.
    Then Bill gave me word you couldn't walk. :eek1 Then I knew I had to get serious.... You expect bike break downs, and the occasional fall, heck I do fall myself sometimes, last time was coming out of Blue Hole and my leg wasn't long enough. :lol3

    Terry,

    The trouble is that you didn't move the "right log", Magoo had his man card snatched away after that one....lol.

    Good on all of you for working together. What an awesome group.

    I'm sure you could, everyone but me made it, Bill and Scott multiple times. But fair warning: all of my shots are going down and then just over the falls. The "rock garden" that pissed Terry off and the last steep climbs were after I crashed and the camera was in my pocket!

    Easiest way to look at the nastiest stretches is to go in where we came out.

    Here's a video compilation of the Saturday morning ride led by Newner with Dirty Dog, Dirt 2007, and Tomski. Newner took us off into only he and his GPS knows where. :lol3 We were so far back in the boonies my WR had to take a couple of quick naps and we ran across a wolf that got lost and died on the trail. I kept listening for banjo music and ready to get the heck out of there but we were safe in that aspect.

    Good ride Newner, thanks for leading us around.
