    Nice meeting you today Mike. I'm looking forward to some guided tours of my new stomping grounds. When I got home my new rear tire for the XR was sitting at the door. Time to mount it tonight. I'll PM you my home number in a bit.

    brewmike, I have ridden some in your area and yes I would like to ride up there again. Put something together, give me a few days notice so I can plan time to drive up (San Jose).

    Already had a commitment for Saturday, I will keep watching. I was looking on a GPS map to see the from and to locations, to get an idea where you are planning to ride. What is fs 1

    forest service 1 is a great road that runs from 36 at Mad river to299 west of willow creek. It is about 50 miles of ridgetop with stunning views to the east and west.

    On a Topo map I found NS1 that goes from HWY 36/Mad River north/west. Can't fine it connecting to HWY 299 but looks like it would be a fun ride. Elevation looks to be over 5,000 ft in places. This early, snow might be a problem? I am interested!

    Seriously doubtful. Snow level dropped to 3500 today, and there's definitely snow on horse and grouse mountain. Maybe cruise to showers pass and head over kneeland. I'd meet ya for some grub if you cruise through.

    Rode the Bridgeville-Alderpoint road a couple days ago.
    On south end... burned out cars and trailers on road junctions.
    Must be trimmer's stuff left over from last year.
