    Yo Dysco and Wayne, what do you guys have in mind?

    I can only say maybe at this point, but an idea of day/route/time would be helpful.

    I wouldn't be opposed to Spring Creek. Where's Pickle Gulch? What about the other trails around Empire like Red Elephant Hill? Not too far away and plenty of riding all close together...

    But I figure if I follow Wayne I'll learn some new trails. :D

    The area I mean is essentially between 119 and Apex. A real mess of jeep trails that isn't mapped well, or marked well, other than it's open. Stone's throw to spring creek, once your at Fall river road.

    So from golden if we go up golden gate, up pickle gulch, explore for a while, duck over to fallriver road on FS 175 or around there, then do spring creek which is essentially south of Dumont, pop out on Squaw pass road, then do Soda Creek area if we have time.

    Empire stuff is fine too, other than it's more of an out and back since the cool road to Dumont was closed several years ago.

    Parts!?? you mean, a full size rear tube? if that's all show up early and I have one, we'll change it in 2.3049934875 minutes including supergluing the grand canyon in your tire. As far as the KP, we double promise we'll get you back in time for dinner, and you won't be fed== I'm not even sharing my cheese stick with you!!!!!! "Honey, I'll be back early and really hungry, that POS wayne won't even share his cheese stick!!!, and he's helping me put a tube in so....I'm like....obligated and stuff....." :dunno

    :lol3

    That was some funny sheet, mang.

    Anyway, a tube and a new brakeline arrived today. The KP has been secured.

    I am IN!


    Do you really think superglue would help? I was going to just put some duct tape on the inside and hope.
