    Let me check

    I have not spoken to Lance. I think that I still have his number, I will call him today. It is starting to sound like a pretty good group of riders will show up.

    I was planning on driving over from New Mexico to ride with Bender this weekend. It would be cool if we had some extra guys to throw down with and do some Monkey shuttles (assuming that several of you are still gonna be there). Will you guys be around the Rampage stuff on Friday?

    Nice, I'm looking forward to getting in some good riding and hangin out. It's been too long. I'll have work out the kinks in my creeky old bones.

    I hope someone has medical experience. With everyone bustin out I'm afraid I'll be dumb enough to break something.

    See you Gents this weekend.

    RayRay the best way to get directions is to call shuntavi bikes because I can not remember the exit numbe off of I-15 the number there is 435-635-7328 or check out thier web site for more info about them @ www.shuntavibikes.com they are very helpful and would by glad to help. sorry that I cannot remember the directions you may be able to mapquest to virgin then ask directions I rode with some one the first time then let someone who knew how to get there navigate the last time if any one else knows the directions let ray ray know ya.

    I'll be there for sure. Leaving late Thursday night.

    I don't know any of you though (except Dr.B) so I guess I'll just be on the lookout for anybody with big bikes. I'll be in a Silver Subaru and riding a gold bullit with a 888.

    I'm meeting Bender in springdale mid morning on friday. I figure we'll head over to rampage by noon for some "Warm-up" .There are some fun jump lines between the prelim and final areas and the cool 35 foot step down gap that always gets me in the flow of that place. I'm sure a Monkey shuttle or two for the afternoon will be in order. I'll look for everyone friday, I'll be in a white Tacoma truck -sounds like there is going to be a good turn-out. Hope to see you all then

    The fact that you call a 35 ft step down a warm up is incredible but we will see you there for sure.

    Well I don't do it directly out of the car but after a few jumps the speed of the step down is real representative of alot of the main stuff out there. It also has real easy access compared to pushing up high on the ridge so I like that area as a "warm-up" zone

    Ok that I can see the speed of things is vital down there. I am excited to see some of the good riders that are coming so that I can learn how to do some of the stuff you guys do.
