So Bob is leading and since I am the only big bike left in the group, I am taking my time and following along as sweeper... At some point, Bob decides we need to try the Mill Creek ATV trail out.

So we get to the rail head and just keep moving on down the road... The trail head starts at a water crossing. It's moving fast and we can't really tell how deep it is. There are concrete bumpers lines up like a boat ramp to help atv's drop in, but the bottom 2 have washed away and it is about a 1.5 foot drop off in the water...

Bob and Marcus stop to talk it over...

If they are unsure on their bikes and their skill level, I'm doomed!!!

I turn and ask Greg which is back to camp, half joking... and we see Marcus start wiggling his front tire like he is backing up, so Greg turns sideways and we think they are turning around... Instead, Marcus lines up beside the concrete ramp where there is a gravel rut down to the water and...

He's across!

So Bob follows and Greg pulls up to check out the scene...

Of course I am thinking, "If Greg goes, then the pressure is all on me!"

CRAP!!!! Now I have to do it!!!
