    Vets day Shuttle...Globe? Flag? Mingus?

    So instead of shuttlin' on our boring old south mountain, ABC and I were thinking of taking the show on the road. Both of us have the day off and are wanting to hit some tree trails. Who wants in? We got room for three more in the truck or if you wanna meet wherever we could maybe bring the trailer or squeeze a total of eight in the truck. Post up if you got the day off and want to get some before the snow falls and strands us in the desert for months. Checked the weather and it's gonna be 70 in globe, 72 in prescott and 60 in flag with clear skies all around. Should be killer!

    Let's shuttle for the Vets!

    My vote for Veterans Day is for Flagg first (I have never DHed there), Mingus second (It rocks up there!), and Globe last (I'm riding there tomorrow). I also propose we leave the valley no later than 5:30AM to get a sunrise drop in. How ever it ends up I'm stoked to have two full days to DH in the same week.

    Post up with your vote on location and if you plan to make it out....

    I'm interested in either Flag or Mingus.

    Man, I'm missing out again! Wish I could join you guys. Already made a commitment to do a Sedona ride. Any shuttle plans for Saturday yet?
    When each day of your life begins with the thought of where you will ride today, tomorrow, this weekend, next month, when your mind becomes so tuned to the rhythm of two wheels that you only look for places to ride, when you picture yourself standing on every mountain top in sight about to drop into a trail, and when someone asks you "Are you still spending all your time riding your bike?" and you answer "YES!" (like there is anything better to do) You have found your passion.

    I'd be 100% for Mingus. I'm going to try for Flag but I'm not 100%.

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting out of town. I'm really feeling flag but if it's just us two, maybe a sedona pedal will be in order. So guys and girls, we need at least two more riders to make the shuttle runs happen...so please, I'm begging you save us from the pedal!

    Jayem and Jrock, you guys wanna help save us? PowerT if we only get a total of 3 we'll be hitting you up definetly. Anyone else want to get some 60 degree tree'd trail goodness?

    Yeah, I'm unsure if the seal on my Monster is going to hold up. I fixed the problem I had at Goat-Camp, but all along I've known the left seal is weak due to scratches in the stanchion. I have a parts-Monster T comming in the mail (to get a good stanchion), but that may not be in time. I have extra seals, but I don't want to pull the leg and replace a seal (and damage that one as well) when I'll have a better fix in a couple days. If I did Mingus I could go home or drive a bit and go home if it decides to die. I don't want to drive to Flag for nothin. That's the dilemma, but I'm still heavily thinking of driving up to Flag anyways.

    thats a tough dillemma...but I'm not sure how long flag will be available for us to ride. At least you could say it went out on a sweet run down reserve! if it does blow, you can ride my bike when I drive, I'm re-doing it soon anyways so you really couldn't hurt it that bad

    R u in flag or down here? We will probably leave town early...6ish to beat traffic and get a good start on the day. but I don' know if we'll be back in phoenix real early though. if you wanna caravan up and roll back solo, you could always to that. I'm thinking early warm up runs on the fish and then knocking some eldon out and the grabbing some grub on the way out of town. Andy's never been up there so I wanna give him a proper tour...

    Awesome day of riding all. Somehow we managed to keep our bikes together and hit the fun stuff. Perfect weather. I am back in Prescott with enough time to do the work I need to get done, but my gas milege is horrible over 100mph.

    Nice Jayem...at least we know that soob can go real fast!

    Great day in the hills of Flagstaff with Jayem, ABCnorte, Jeff and myself. We met up with Eabos, Admril Andy, Captain Tony and Tenderfoot Tim shuttlin' with their secret shuttle vehicle. We knocked off 8 runs. Great weather with lots of cloud cover and super dusty conditions. Popped Jeff's and ABC's wasabi cherry and ABC's private hymen. Finished the day at Pita Jungle with some tasty grub and a gallon of arnold palmers! Great shuttlin' with you boys and Jayem the vet... it was an honor. Did you get your applebee's?
