    Pins....

    I'm thinkin' of some riding Sunday myself, and there may be a few others. I'm guessing the recent snowfall has melted off the lower areas. Maybe Traihead cafe at 10?

    Singletrack mind

    Pins and I will be car pooling from Bend. I'd like to get on the trail by 10am fi at all possible. We have a 2hr drive each way, and it would be nice to get back to Bend at a decent time Sunday night, because I have to work early Monday morning. Judging from how worked I was from our last Oakridge trip I will need lots of sleep to even think about making it to work on Monday.

    Weather should be good, and snow lines high enough to find some singletrack.

    I thought you were a podiatrist. I was wrong; guess you are an "on-call-ogist."

    (Collective groan)

    Don't count me in. Methinks it's a domestic day for ol' Albee. But post where you're riding, and maybe I'll get a chance to meet y'all out there...

    Any room for a slow-poke? I won't be offended by no, but let me know.

    Anybody is welcome to meet with us at the THC.
    This should be a fast group, the last ride I did there 2 weeks ago started with a 10 mile climb...
    A few of us will be on SS's looking for a good time

    I'd say to show up in Oakridge, and we'll see who's riding and what the pace is. Worst that could happen is you'd ride alone, but depending on how tired I feel tomorrow, I may not be able to hang with the "fast" group. I did lotsa work today, so I'm not sure how far and hard I will feel like riding.

    I would recommend doing the 5828 RD/lower Alpine loop. It could be extended up Alpine towards/past Buckhead Mt until you hit snow.

    Will need to be ready for some blowdown.

    I'll be there. Steve (HankHank) is planning on being there as well. I'm not sure if we are carpooling or whatever. If 'yall give me a call by 8 AM or so I'm down with a carpool.

    I hear you on the work your arse off today thing. I put our new brush-cutter through it's paces today (and moved a little gravel). 2+ gallons of gas/several hours/a little cussing/some wore out hands later I had made a "noticeable" dent in the resident berry population. Don't worry, there's still plenty to go around if anyone wants to come on down and join in the fun...

    See you folks tomorrow.

    Yeah, I planted trees in the morning, then moved a pallet of retaining wall blocks in the afternoon. My back should be a little tight tomorrow.
    If yall want to carpool, Im meeting Gooch at the Pleasant Hills Ray's parking lot, on the north side of Hwy 58. We'll be in the east end of the lot, by the coffee drive-thru at 9:30am.
    See ya tomorrow, Saskwatch

    saw some of you at the trail head cafe.

    All I can say is awesome effort all of you for riding Oakridge. Spread the wealth! The trails are going OFF. Let's give back now if you can...

    Next wknd, don't forget to come out and commit some time for trail maintenace. We all know how much the trails NEED our love.

    Let's spread it.

    Thanks for the pics Milt. It was cool riding w/you (even though you don't like people in front of you pulling large sticks out of trees as they ride...). Maybe some of us can come your way soon? Enjoy the week!

    Looks good y'all. I spent two hours out on skinny tires today with ML, was a beauty day for anything outside. Was pretty worked after HarmCon yesterday, so the trail sounded like a bit much for these legs. Still, I have a jealous fit whenever I see I missed out on something like that.
