    Ace - I see on the route where I incorrectly routed you through "the tunnel of love". It is NOT suppose to be on the Trot. That is why we must run these routes to make sure I didn't FU. Which I did.

    Some of you who rode with me last year will remember we "got lost" and went that way. Small stream bed with tunnel through over growth. Where trail and bush conspire to test your metal.

    I am not going down River Road just incase it rains. I will have an add alternate for that if its dryish.

    Im going to be out and about in the early morning but no special plan. Anyone interested in tagging along post up. I will check early in the morning for weather and interest. Prolly on the DR

    for those waiting on tracks.

    I have preliminary tacks which are not always correct.
    I checked out DS tracks leaving the Camp site this morning and it aint pretty. Gonna need some rerouting to work.

    So I will send out tracks now if anyone wants to ride them, BUT be aware there are some issues. Meaning a couple a wrong turns (down trails we don't want to go on the trot) and some mud we don't need to deal with.

    Beast Ride is fine as are the smaller DS rides.

    Grass was freshly cut at the Camp site. The stage for the rock band and strippers was being constructed.

    There was also a bunch of guys in black with funny little red lights hanging off the ends of their guns... maybe playing laser tag?

    Cool in the early morning - hot by 10 I was home by 11.

    I want to play!

    I'm going to try for Friday afternoon and Saturday. It's been awhile and I need to ride!

    Sent a pm for tracks, I can wait for the final tracks as don't think I can't do any pre riding.

    Thanks for doing this!

    I have this feeling that a new tire should be ordered.

    Ok, no worries. Let me know when ur free and we will talk. If its the spot up close to the camp on the return leg, you are correct....serious mud and fun! However, access is the issue. I think they may have posted on a few trails? :hmmmmm
    Will ride the route again on Tuesday after i get back to confirm. I wouldn't put any pavement in on purpose unless its necessary to get to the fun stuff!

    when are you back in town?
