Thanks for the update on the rd conditions. That is where I was thinking about riding this weekend, Soaproot saddle is the first left on big creek rd and has creek crossings to deal with Much funner on a more dirt oriented bike for sure.

Do you want to try it out from Hopewell & 180 Saturday. It would be cool if it ties into Crabtree & Davis flat. Looking at it on the satellite image, it looks like it goes through. Looks like it goes to Pine Ridge also...Chip and I rode up to the lookout tower on Pine Ridge from Crabtree last year.

It is mostly private land without public access. locked gates on both ends. I know since I have the key.

I should clarify.....White Deer between the Army Corps of Engineers near the dam to Hopewell is locked. I have no idea about White Deer between Hopewell and PineRidge other than it is mostly USFS land. My guess is that will be closed as well, but you never know. I might join you two hooligans on Sat. Waiting to see if the family is skiing or not.

Josh, I was hoping you were needing to do a pre fire season re-con patrol of the area and in need of a couple of volunteers. (hooligans)the skiing sucks!

Been an interesting/frustraighting week with the DR. Back up and running now, justin keep an eye on your float valve o-rings, if they look worn/shrunken, change em for new ones! No DVDaze for me this year I think that is Caren's birthday weekend.

Rear tire is damn near dead... Mileage on it ~11500 miles, not too shabby. Front mounted at the same time is still healthy, gonna try a pilot road 3 I hope after I burn up a set of 50/50 tires on the 21"/18" setup. Rear sproket is gonna need replacement here too as well.
