    rode the motorcycle at Murphy Sun. Sand was awesome, dirt was muddy and slick. I'm sure Wilson is the same

    Rode Wilson Cr yesterday 3/27. Conditions were excellent. Road W100 to Bingo, China Wall. Picked up some ticks along the creek on W100. All in all a great day.

    rode the motorcycle in Murphy today. Dusty in most places. looked mostly sunny at Wilson Crk today. going to ride the mtn bike there tomorrow. should be really good. The weird thing is this morn. I looked at the Dan's Ferry Cam and it was raining. Called the gas station and the girl said it was indeed raining @ 8:30 this morn. Yet Murphy was dusty. As many of you may know, once you cross the Snake the weather is way diff. Guess that is why it is a F#*king desert. See ya there

    Nope, if doesn't rain tonight I'm hitting Avimor...it'll be like a bit o Ireland there soon.
    Hmmm...... I guess Avimor is the foothills too.

    I'm sure Wilson was great today. If it rains that's where we should go.

    Thread police eh, I guess you see no correlation between a daytime high of 15 F and no ride reports, If you don't I'll be glad to expound on the concept. This speaks nothing of the fact that this thread is now almost a year old and the original question has already been answered.

    instead of starting anew, i decided just to reopen on old Wilson Crk thread. So Sorry Fred. I,,and others have been riding all winter. If you have a prob. don't respond. Simple. The Dan's Ferry Cam shows little snow. Riding foothills tomorrow, but maybe Sun. Let us know if you go tomorrow Grady. See you out there next May Fred.

    Gee, if I could only be as manly as you guys, I think it might get above freezing before May though.

    We did a trail check on Saturday, still looked too greasy so decided to wait another week. But we saw a car with a bunch bikes headed out after we left. Anybody want to chime in with an actual ride report.

    Celebration Park had very conditions yesterday. One can get over 27 miles of riding
    there with 3k vertical if you ride the few climbs out of the canyon up stream towards
    Swan Falls

    Mitch-
    Where do you park out there? I've floated the snake and got out at Celebration but that was before I MTB'd so I didn't pay any attention to possible riding. Can you help me out?

    you can park at celebration park or just past the main area near the green gate about which is about 200 yards upstream. There is a lot of single track, just got to dig around.
    I might head out there Saturday if you are interested.

    Any idea on the time? We were going to try and ride Shane's because the trail is supposed to be decent to ride.

    We rode out at Wilson today. It is great! we did northwest and bingo and there was just one section that had mud.
    I just don't understand my wife....she thinks its nuts to ride when the temperature is in the 20's....go figure

    For those in the know, do you think Wilson will be rideable by Saturday? I've never been out there, so I can't guess at how it's handling the recent wetness.

    if the forcast is correct, then it will be good to go. I rode the dirtbike near Hemminway last Sun. and it was perfect. So Wilson will be totally dry. See you out there Sat.

    Anyone been lately? Did the recent moisture settle the dust? I was thinking about heading out tomorrow (Sun.).

    Rode NW Passage > Bingos > Reynolds Creek today (Sun, 11/10) and conditions were great minus a little studdering through horse tracks. I think the recent moisture knocked the dust down and firmed things up. It's good to go.
