Hey godaddygo! I thought you dropped off the planet! You said you'd been meaning to head up to Lemonade Peak anyway, right?
I wasn't about to ask any questions about the Vapor... I just figured you had second thoughts about giving it away and I wouldn't blame you. No hurries.

If you and Paul couldn't make it up there on your first attempt that leaves me wondering just how doable the hard route is.
It's looking like this has at least enough interest to start planning and make a date.
I've never tried to herd cats.... that sounds like an adventure in itself!
Let's be clear.... I wasn't having any problems. I think that hill has something against either KTMs or trials tires, but Paul made it up a little less-far every time he tried. I doubled back to see where he was and only found a helmet. I shut off my bike to listen and all I heard was muddled curse words off in the distance.

This sounds fun to me. I would have to decide which group to ride with.
I think Bad Tom is over south of Wallace. Lemonade is directly south of Pinehurst, only 6 1/2 miles from the Kootenai county line. That area is one of the best kept secrets of Idaho's trails. Everyone heads to Wallace to ride because the trails are easily accessible and popular, but with a little digging, you uncover a whole jackpot of crazy trails that only the locals ride around Pinehurst and eastern Kootenai County.
I hate bear grass.
