    2013 Syllamo thread

    A little over two weeks out from the race and no chatter.

    What is the word on the trail conditions from the locals?

    I'm hoping to imrove from blowing up approx 2.5hrs into the race last year. I'll be running a hydration pack at least to checkpoint 2 to cure the dehydration problem that I had last year. I'll also be better prepared for the slowness of the trail to checkpoint #1. Last year, I tried to hammer that section and that contributed to my demise.

    Great to hear. Looks like the weather is shaping up to be nice again.

    So there won't be sections of trail with chest high weeds smacking my arms this year? Hooray! It will be nice to see around corners and such. I'd donate money to get that trail cleared better than it was last year. Not sanitized, mind you, but I don't need trail encroaching weeds smacking my arms and face.

    I rode it this weekend and it was much better than last year. Looking forward to it, I just realized I've done the 50 5 times and this will be my 3rd 125K, that's a lot of Syllamo Smiles

    I'm sure you can "donate" dinners or beers to the guys that did most of the work! Ask around for Denny Hess and Wes Wright. At least a pat on the back as they have worked hard up there in conjunction w the FS.
