    Amen. And the worst part of that climb is just getting to the trailhead.

    Like I said - IF I could make this, I'm pretty sure I could get through the 1st 2 legs:
    "Park at 543
    Lower Sandy"
    Other than that - no guarantees.
    Luckily I am booked tomorrow and won't be able make it!

    Are the trails dry there? Sounds like a massive suffer-fest, but just about survive-able if dry.

    mtngoat has been PRACTICING for this all winter long

    so .. he's been out there, getting all 'in-tune' with the buff, and has invited you-all out to beat the pp out of you

    in fact: "you drop me I'm happy, I drop you, you'd better be happy too" ... means he's challenging any ONE and ALL to dare to beat him....

    i have a feeling he's had this one brewing in his boy-brain all winter

    just sayin'....

    ps RONTELE: it's an ITT!!! go out on sunday, and nail it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hmm, if I go, it wont be that I can drop anyone... my only hope would be that I can outlast them Perhaps the goal shouldn't be time trial, but who can make it the furthest before quitting!

    CT West
    LOST CREEK Wilderness
    CT East
    Guessing this does not mean via 663-Rolling Creek ?

    Is there anywhere to get drinkable water on that route?

    No rolling creek goes sw to the wilderness. Ct goes to the boundry as well. You can filter water from the creek next to ct just across the road.

    I was wondering where the aid stations were going to be? My copy didn't show any!

    I am becoming aware of his devious nature.

    a.) my guess is that YOU ARRREE your own Aid Station;-)

    b.) but that said, mge should likely spell out if "outside help" is allowed -- are people allowed to pick up food/water/kisses from outside individuals waiting out on the route/course? if one does, does that DQ them, if others do not ;-)

    c'mon jj... why don't you & ed go for a "little" ride tomorrow at the same time and just happen to follow his route.

    you can have a beer waiting for jeremy when he arrives.
    -
    .And following our will and wind . . .
    . . .We'll ride the spiral to the end
    and may just go where no one's been.

    nah. i got bigger snipes to hunt the following weekend. no need for me to blow myself to smithereensss this weekend.

    we're headed out of town, too (not fruita) ... otherwise i'd be tempted to go out and HECKLE a few buff boys.

    On support..Meh...as long as you have ridden the whole route on your own two wheels and pedal power I don't care if you get water from a stream, your food from a dead animal carcass or if you get them from the backseat of your grandma's Pinto.

    I'm figuring 8-10 hours if all goes well and that may be optimistic for me.

    Come on JJ, you could complete this route in under 4 hours

    it's good you put out the ground rules in challenging your friends to a race ;-) they'll appreciate it, i'm sure of it.

    nope. like i said: bigger badder better next weekend... and no way -- you have too many overlaps to make it a 4 hour tour ... and the weather, it will likely get rough. but you knew that, didn't you

    4 hours.. don't be silly. that's just ridiculous.

    It was, I'm sorry...I was just tryin to goad you into kicking my a$$ this weekend. I'm thinking my 8-10 hour goal may be ridiculous buts it good to have goals and keep it optimistic.

    you know -- ed put together a nice web-route out there that doesn't double-back so many times on so many of the trails... and he hits all of the trails in buff creek +. with your double upping and downing and outting ... you're bumpin' the time and mileage significantly.

    i'm trying to guess on times looking through your route list .... LMAO ... can't wait to see what happens.

    i have my bets.... but i'll keep them to myself.

    so have you found any of your friends yet ... to race you?

    optimism is always a good thing.

    I finally took a look at the map and your route really doesn't look worthy of my time.

    I'm gonna guess about 12k vert, 80 miles? I may see you out there, but my start time isn't until kids nap at 2, and it will be more of a mini web classic. I don't want to peak too early anyway before spike fest.
