    I'm kinda thinking that this is going to be hard to pull off. I don't have any drivers to volenteer, so even if Molly is OK to shuttle, we're still one driver short.

    I don't want to blow the plan B horn quite yet, but unless someone has a driver to offer up, we're either going to have to do a smaller group, or we're going to have to ride the canyon. Where is Paul Chen when we need him???

    I got us a driver and a truck that will fit at least 4 folks. I will however need to get him some cash for hauling us up there so 7$ each in the HTRN shuttle truck.. We can fix 5 total inside but it will be tight (paul chen size truck so people can fit in the back)

    Yeah! Now we just need Molly to drive Chris' car and we should be good.

    Where and when are we meeting for this sillyness?

    I need to make sure the Delirium T is ready--I haven't ridden it since hitting Sol Vista back in July

    I was thinking stratton parking lot at 6 and head out from there, would prefer to be ready and loaded up by as close to 6 as possible so maybe show up 10 mins early so we are only waiting on the 1 or 2 that cant get there till exactly 6.

    Knolly would be upset if they heard it had been that long K man.

    This ride looks as if it is going to work out, and the way I calculate Jimmy may even have a seat!

    Would my truck help with this, I am cool with it as long as we only drive up gold camp, maybe molly can drive it back down to stratton. If 2 sit in the back that is 8 people and 7 bikes

    Dam,
    Bikes are FUN

    .
    I second that.

    Molly is a go!!!

    Joe--we are not driving up the rocky 379 road. The Wey Campground turn off is rock free, short and has plenty of turn around at the top which is only about 3/4 of a mile in anyhow. Charle's Cutoff is a fun single track that takes us over to 379 and dumps us right at the little dam waterfall spot, about 1 mile from Jones trailhead. Your truck would be most appreciated and not abused.

    So if we have Joe's truck, Jake's truck, and Nic's truck, where does that put us?? Andy is out but I have another friend Andy that wants to take his place.

    Woohooo!!!

    I have a few suggestions regarding packing for this ride (from a fatherly/boyscout perpective):

    Please bring at least one extra layer, even though the conditions should be nice(ish) weather. Between the coldish weather and the trail conditions, wear your armor. If you have a spare light, or a spare battery and room in your pack, please bring it in case there are any light problems. And most importantly: if you have any whiskey, you should definitely bring that too.

    I can't wait for this ride!!!

    You guys have me excited for this ride too. The only issue now is there is a bug going around our house. My wife and older daughter have it now. So I'll have to make a go/no go call tomorrow depending on how they feel. They way they have been down and out the last few days it doesn't look good. Who knows what a good nights sleep could do for them though.

    This list does not include the 3 drivers, I figured each vehicle would hold 1 driver and 4 riders.

    I'm hopeful about this ride still, but J isn't feeling well so I might have to bail if she isn't feeling better this afternoon. Everyone, please send healquick vibes to her and Brian's wife!

    Hey all, I don't have to leave for Durango until early tomorrow morning. If someone doesn't feel like driving one of the shuttle buses I'll volunteer to drive someones vehicle back down. Just let me know.
    I also have a great driving record! lol

    Yes, I'm dressing warmer than I would for a regular ride in ~35 degree temps. We will ride up about 30 minutes to warm up, but then it's (almost) all downhill so you're engine isn't going to be burning as many calories to keep you warm. Your outer layer should be fairly windproof because of the high rate of speed you'll get shredding the gnar.

    My wife is feeling worse today. Add on to that both girls egging each other on to do everything they aren't supposed to and I am going to have an exhausted wife by the evening. I am going to say I am out for the ride. So, that leaves an open seat for SCAR or anyone else that is wanting to go.

    I hope you guys have fun. Take pictures please... I need some ride stoke.

    That is good news but I am thinking you need to ride instead, with 3 trucks we have enough room for 1 more.
