    There is fresh work on Deer point , tempest and elk meadows.
    They are really doing some great work up there .
    By not allowing the progression of trails your cheating everyone out of their potential.

    There will be more work to come in the next month. And by this spring, there will be a new way to access Eastside with actual off-street parking and my favorite....a sh!itter. Hell, there will also be a new extension to Eastside.

    I know I always bring this up, but I encourage everyone to get involved with the trail crews. Involvement does mean just mean digging. It could mean helping with GPS work, just telling the SWIMBA board what you would like them to focus on, or helping out with a BBQ after a day of trail work.

    And speaking of BBQ, I'd love to have a BBQ at Bogus this fall. I'd love to have day of riding followed by a sweet BBQ. Anyone interested, please reply. It would be nice to have a good turnout. (And if you have a hookup for ribs or beer), please, please reply.

    I'm in -- I have no special connections in the food or beer departments, but I'm more than willing to ante up...

    Dan - Feel free to start a new thread. I probably won't ride up. I wish I had a little propane grill...that way we could have burgers around Noon.

    Mark - do you have one of those grills? I'd bring my grill, but it was about 300lbs!!!

    Next Saturday

    FYI
    Next Saturday is the Twilight Criterium if it matters. I know some on the board will be racing and many others will likely be watching.

    Al, I have two portables . . .

    one of the little Coleman guys that uses the small green cannisters, and a RoadTrip grill that uses a small version of a regular propane tank. I could bring either or both to Wednesday's meeting.

    Which ever is easiest to get and return. Should be fun. Ride, eat, nap, then watch the Twilight.

    I may be able to make this hootenany. I may or may not drive or ride depending on how flakey I am or not or how much progress I make on the ankle recovery or not.

    As for the state of the trails up there it's nice to think that with the new 5280 parking lot next year and its connecting trail to the Eastside/Mr. Big junction at the saddle that shall not be named, that the available riding will essentially double in scope. If only people would get off the Eastside elephant trail and not be afraid of getting lost on the Sinker/DB/Mr. Big journey through Mirkwood.

    Good work on getting the parking lot and sh!tter grant togather Al! Too bad you couldn't make it a two-holer so we could have constests.

    Or not.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    I wanted it to be a 2 holer, but the cost of everything has gone up.

    I'll bring the Coleman . . .

    and a couple cannisters of fuel. No big hurry getting it back. I can use the RoadTrip grill for the Barneys.

    elk meadows is really, really nice. so is deerpoint (up and down).

    tempest.... i know there is some work being done on the switchbacks...but, damn they are hard. tight/steep....some with rocks. i'm a terrible rider...but, some of those switchbacks - seem almost unrideable...am i a puss?.

    we climbed/pushed up it...and then down the face trail, down the short section of elk meadows..and then back down deer point.

    great job. elk meadows is really, really nice...did i say that already?
