    Feb 5 ride to check out the old school ground....it's all still there. Farmer's fields, hard pack roads, gravel roads, ruts, big hills, little hills, lots of nice soft silty dirt to crash in. No mud or ice - lots a room for the air ambulance to land. Stay tuned for schedule.

    Hey...I KNOW YOU!!! well not really but whatever. We will definitley hook up for some rides this year, my tendencies towards group rides have fallen into favor with the ADSMC people, with a 'more off the beaten path feel' to them.....as compared to CGP rides (fun in and of themselves, given the right group). I'll be posting any ADSMC rides in the Dirt forum on CGP as well as here if the others don't beat me to it :)

    ps...maybe you can get my wife out for this dirt school...if she lets me get her a dually bike that is......

    I'll have to get out with you guys sometime. I made it out last Saturday and found the tank up Jameson. Nothing extreme. I think the WR400 might make it to Bar C this weekend if I can swing it with the wife.

    Bar C was dry today, a few ice flows but dry! My husband was out there playing all day whilst I was at work!

    I saw you guys going through High River, I was on my lunch break. Very jealous!

    I think I am heading out to Indian Graves friday with the CRF. :clap

    I wouldn't mind a ride saturday PM, any takers? Something south or west of Black Diamond would work for me as I am limited for time.

    PM me if up for it!

    Samm :wink:
