Rider # and entry for sale for 2013 Sheetiron

Turns out my son's cub scout advancement ceremony is the same weekend! Bummer, hard to get out of this one, especially since I am the den leader. Selling my entry for what I paid, $65. This ride is sold out and the only way to get in if you don't have a number already is to buy an entry/rider number from some unfortunate soul like me. PM me if you are interested, cash or check, 1st come first served.

You think YOU'RE crazy? I'm doing it FOR THE THIRD TIME on an '07 Ural Arctic Gear-Up with a sidecar! Things go bad and we can toss your 100cc two stroker in the sidecar!

There's a chance my riding partner may have to work next weekend and won't be able to go.

I may be looking for someone to ride hard splits with. I'm on a KTM525.

We've got a few riders in our group doing easy splits. Look for my van (see signature), I'll be there by early afternoon on Fri.

Sunday last Easy Routes mis Labeled

If your taking the easy splits Sunday, it looks like the roll chart mis labels "Easy Way 1-2" at the very end. Shouldn't be too hard to see. Chart says advance to either easy 1 or easy 2 but both are later labeled easy 1.. Very enjoyable day. My buddies all bailed so I was able to ride alone and make real good time and stay out of most of the dust!

Did anybody ever find trail 9A in Cow? After doing all the hard splits on Saturday we were looking forward to collecting the whole set on Sunday, but couldn't find the trail and had to sort of make up our own route out of the area to the lunch stop.

There were dozens of riders with us, lost looking for the reset point after the creek on the left after lunch on Sunday too.

Both Sunday roll charts, shall we say, have room for improvement. And a GPS option for the ride would be awesome.

The Sheet Iron still abides though. Pretty moderate weather this year was nice. Especially the sunny morning in Fort Bragg.
