Ahh heck! I'm still waiting on ESP to finish up my suspension. Guess I'm still out. Maybe next weekend....or Monday.

Heck, looks pretty darned nice out today (saturday).
Anybody wanna go check out the fresh snow level before the jeeps ruin it?
I could be at Lytle Creek 9~10am.

A few pics from today

About 10 miles from home on the secret trail into Lytle Creek.


Access road to the shootin' range had already been trampled...


... but the entire lower Lytle Creek divide was fresh powder


First tracks all the way up


This was about as deep as it got.


Snow was almost all in the lower pass and pretty much ended at Applewhite Grade.

Farther up the pass looked like this ...


Totally different from when I turned around at the same spot a few years ago.


Made it up to Summit Inn (no snow) for an early lunch then turned around and headed home.

Hadn't really made any 'cause I hadn't heard from anyone. Still wanna go?

Sorry for the late reply, been in the garage this afternoon. Looks like the regulator/rectifier on the 525 died sometime today. Ah well. It lasted over 9k miles and I need to order a new tail light assembly from BD anyhow.

Snow can be avoided and probly should be...
Jeeps gone thru most places this afternoon, re-freeze tonight, tomorrow may be ice

in the mornin so a late start is fine. You pick the time and place

I was thinking to get up into the desert, maybe lunch at Adelita's in Lucerne Valley. Although I suppose it'll be cold getting over that way anyhow.

Haven't been following the thread so looks like I"m going to miss riding with you guys Sunday. Would have really loved to have ridden today with you Matt. Those photos are very compelling.

So what's this MX ride your planning. I've been really wanting to do a MX ride so if you're looking for company, let me know what the plans are and I'll work it into the schedule if I can.
