    Starting tomorrow, I have three days off in a row. Winterhk sent me his Great Divide trail maps and I think I'll try and ride as much of the Montana section as I can fit in starting in Kalispell and going south. I'll be doing it solo and camping each night so if you guys don't hear from me by the middle of next week, come find me! :ricky

    You forgot hunters. :lol3

    It's not winter yet, but it's pretty damned close. I went on a single track ride sunday and it was an all out blizzard at the top of the ridge we rode to, but it was mid 60's and sunny in town today.

    I'm going to spend the next three days chasing my own ghosts. :nod

    Dirtrider,

    I hope you have a great ride but I was looking forward to meeting you when I pick up my 950. Was planning on Tuesday PM or Wednesday AM. Be Careful, have fun.

    I did some of the trail east of Deerlodge. Fun. Lots more to do.
    Update:Sold the 950. Got an 06 525EXC. Getting used to throttle control.
    See you on the trail sometime.
    Flathead river is real nice this time of year...as you know. I will be up there on occassion throughout the winter.
    Later and be somewhat careful out there although you wont be alone.
    Let us know when you get back.
