    Weather actually looks great!! :clap

    Not overly hot, but warm, with a chance of rain during the late morning/early afternoon.. Keeping dust down and not baking us, so full gear will be welcome.

    Clam Lake is calling for all chance of rain to be gone by 3pm, making for great campfire weather and a low of 57 and clear!!!

    Sounds like great drinking weather!! Perfect for BSing around a campfire!! Luckily I have only seen Ernie 3 times in the last month, and Chad only 2 short visits..:lol3

    Should be great fun!!!:freaky

    Oh, Knock on wood..:evil

    Bummer!

    200+ Miles of slab in the heat and thunderstorms doesn't sound like a great time actually.

    :lol3 While I didn't get to see the show, you guys talking about age differences and whether or not she was hot was hilarious!!
    And it was good to meet you, Rob!:clap

    I found out that my memory sucks, and went riding with Zed/Zora and clan without airing my tires down from 35/38 on a heavily loaded KLR, with a fat guy on the seat..:huh Got into some deep sand and the plowing started. After picking up the KLR and getting the hell out of sand for a few miles, I aired the tires down and life was much, much better..

    Great time that night and actually found some really cool minimal improvement roads on the way home, that went on for miles and miles..

    Had a great ride, and my thanks to Chad and everyone who was involved!:clap

    Nice pix Geoff. I recognize many of the ones from the Northern Wisconsin Adventure Trail (NWAT). What kind of shape was the Dead Horse in? I'm running through there on the NWAT later this week with a few folks. I imagine is is getting wetter and wetter . . .

    Lots of Water...I hope your not with any newbies running big bikes :D My front tire went through about 1000 decent size puddles..my back through about 2000

    There were enough large puddles to make you pretty comfy with water crossings for a good time..and you know how rocky that part of the trail system is..

    but it was fun as hell and I wouldn't think twice about riding it tomorrow again..thanks again Bryan..that trail is going to be a favorite..can't wait to run the whole thing.
