    Nice I would be down for prescott if you get those racks and drive. Not taking my truck up that way until I make sure my new shift module holds up and it wasn't a deeper prob.

    I could have two old and slow people in for shuttling (I have a truck).

    post up some details if you head to Globe or Prescott.

    I'll defer to Jeff on this, but Mingus may be a bad idea given the soaking we've had in the last two days.

    We would like to check out the Icehouse trail at a pace that would rival the O.J. Simpson "slow-speed" chase. Not expecting anyone to ride with us just need shuttling to the top of the hill, and have a truck to shuttle others to the top of the hill.

    We will likely be there most of the day, but because it is a about a 2 hour drive for us (N. Phoenix) it would be easier for us to start at 9 am.

    So if we get there at 9 pick up 2 or 3 riders and take them to the top and drop them off so they can take a run. Then we drive back to the bottom and leave our car there and wait for those people to come down and drive us to the top, or something like that?

    That would work great so everyone that gets up there with us can take a run down .After that your vehicle would stay down all day until you guys were ready to leave.

    How many bikes can you fit across the tailgate? is it a full size bed or stepside? I can get 6 easy on mine with a tight fit maybe 8-9

    It's a full sized truck with a rack that can hold 5 bikes upright so they don't bang into each other, or if you put them over the tailgate I'm guessing 8-10 bikes. Also I have a king cobra hitch rack that can hold 2 additional bikes.

    It's an access cab, so you can squish 3 or 4 people inside the back seat as long they are not too tall or covered in dirt

    I would have a receiver hitch mounted on then weld up a simple rack, i can put you it touch with a couple of peeps who could hook you up with a quality rack. Everyone i ride with has a homemade rack, mine's even made out of aluminum and mounts on the trunk. Although it will only hold 3 bikes.

    Nice then were covered for that first run. Also my guess is we wouldn't make it down until 9:15-9:30 at our normal pickup off kellner

    A damn fine fay on the mountain. Had to been on of the best days on the mountain as far as experiences and of course ripping trails.

    Perfect temps tacky first run, takier second run, messy but extreamly fun rideable slop, riding in a downpour and riding in drizzle. Lots and lots of fun . A few of us got 5 runs and others took it easy with a couple runs. Great riding with everyone .
    toll for the day was 1 ice house and 4 freight trains.




    Anyone want to ride tomorrow? Will be very tacky in the morning

    Agreed in the many years of riding the pinals today was flatout awesome. Felt like the shore with all the rain/moisture fog low clouds and way slippery gnar in the canyon. Ripping freight in the pouring rain was fun as hell .
