    Thump don't lets us hold it for another year , weather is still good and the track is dry !:freaky

    We didn't stop once on the way out except for gas at Rustic , a few stops crept in on the way back for some strange reason .:lol3

    Rowdy was in perfect condition but if you don't hit some of those obstacles dead right it ends up a mess and we missed a couple .:eek1

    The Sherco and the DR350 ran faultlessly .

    I think I want another go at it yet this year .:huh

    Hmmm.. might be possible for this coming weekend if I'm not stuck doing construction on the house. That would be my last chance for several weeks. 9/30 weekend is booked and 10/6 is reserved for making a fool of myself at EnduroX.

    Good work Mark!
    I just can't seem to find the time for an entire day either. . . . Rode Kelly to 7mile and then up Swamp Creek/Killpecker and back with 2 of the shop guys the other week - but couldn't join you, or them for a There and Back run!

    The saw work was the USFS (actually, they contracted out the CO Youth Corp to do a god bit of it).
    I 'spose they need to know that a ST only structure needs to be installed at a few of the road-crossings, and at the end.

    Jeff, can you get some signs from the FS that we could install? And then maybe rearrange some of the felled timber to choke off the TH's and road-crossings?
    Let me know how I can help. . . . The last thing we need up there are the quads to eat up what little ST we have!:pissed

    I gave the new stickers to 602 to install. I think he left the country. :huh

    Yes, barricades are the best solution.

    I knew all the tree cutting wasn't the work of users. They had one helluva chain saw. They were cutting 2'+ diameter logs into short sections. Not sure why they felt the need to cut all of the logs near the trail into short pieces. Very bizarre.

    602. . . Calling 602 to the green Forest Service phone. . . .

    "This is the United States calling, are we reaching?"

    So, when is this sucker going to be ready for some attempts? Anyone have eyes on the snow?
