    Hard to tell but the trail is maybe 18 inches wide at this point and there is a huge penalty for stepping to the left

    Yah, just walked in the door from games. I'll dig through and upload some pictures in a while, maybe tomorrow. Sweet a$$ ride gentleman! If someone finds an Old Chub laying in the trail somewhere, it is compliments of mGe!!

    [SIZE="6"]The ticks are out folks! [/SIZE]

    One was making his way into mGe's arm when we got in the truck, and i just was unpacking and one fell out on the floor from my wool jersey! So guys might wanna dig through your gear a bit!

    Still grinning

    NIce pics by the way!!

    I think that last shot had something to do with how breezy it was at the top and pretty much the whole day

    coo looks like bout 40 miles or more. Didn't find the old flume/ aquaduct (fat trail) on the way down? Where's snow line now? Looks like about timberline. Think I'm going to ride the old flume/ aquaduct today just wonderin how much snow I'll encounter.
    Guess it doesn't matter. I'll give a report when I get back. Something else for you to find now. Might be the best downhill run in the county. Funer than the ride from Silverdale to Gtown.
    Too bad some tore up that old pump shack it was a good place to get out of the weather.

    Me and Flyer were going to do this loop but the weather had us a bit leary of a big ride with a lot of route finding. Looks like y'all were missed by the rain.

    I'll make another attempt once we get back to the usual sunny weather.
