Hmm, I need to check in more often. I can't ride weekdays much, but keep me in the loop when leaving Muk - I'll try to make it!

How was the ride???

WW and I had a fun ride yesterday. We went up whatever that mtn is called across Lake Cavanaugh Rd from Walker, Green mtn? It's off Finn Settlement/Granstrom Rd. Then we went to Walker, since he had never been. We did some fire roads and then up some pretty gnarly 4x4 trails, but since I was on a virtually bald Goodyear dirt track rear tire, we were a bit limited. Hopefully WW will post some pics, as I forgot to take any. What a beautiful day!

I can post a pic, as that is all I took! It was a most excellent day out, got to make the most of this weather while it lasts ... Unfortunately, we can't report on snow conditions on 17, as, well, we got a little distracted

No Pics. But 6 miles to the snow. Not very deep but too dense to ride through.

Bruce and I headed up there yesterday and had a look around. Taking the 18 up from Swede Haven Road, we got to some snow at 6 miles, but carried on through it.



Shortly after, we hit this at 7.3 miles, 2400 ft and had to turn around



No go, so we headed around to 17 via Finney Creek.



We got about 12 miles up, to around 1700ft and saw no snow.



Beautiful day to be out and about with your hound at your side.



Unfortunately, we were out of time, so headed back before we got to the snow line.

Took another ride up 17 from the same side today, and only got a couple of miles further than Bruce and I managed. Right at the junction with the 18, there was snow going in both directions. Melting fast in the mid seventy degree heat, though!

WW, go back to page 34 and look about down about 2/3 the way till you see Ride FS 17 by Tom Edison. It is from our runs at 17~18 last spring. Work your way forward and read Toms' post and you can see how far we made it on different rides. About 2700' on May 14th.

Tom,[Lorne] and I will be hitting Illabot in the next week or so. We got stopped by snow and downed trees last week. Tom the crumy is together.

BD, I will have to learn how to do that old post thing. Lots of roads to ride up off the 17~18.

Rode through the last snow drift on 17 today - @ Cumberland Gap. 18 is still blocked by snow at Siegelson, but it should be gone soon.
