Monday ride anyone? Leave early back early? Gotta pickup my daughter around 1600.

Think DS lite since I would be 530ing it. Or... could always hit hollister or something a little more dirtbike oriented.

I'm game. Muddy condtions today. Ross crossing and blach are epic. Glad I have proper tires today.

Miami was epic yesterday, even on the easy trails with my newbie friends.

Right on. Safe to say its been damn near 2 years or more since I actually planned a route. Not even sure I would know where to begin. Likely new snow on the ground above 4500' I would think.

I would like to truck up at least half way to keep as many miles off the 530 on pavement as possible. You have anywhere in particular you want to explore? I do not have built in gps like JP or Perry. I tend to ride till I hit reserve then start to worry. Haven't gotten into too much trouble that way... A little, but nothing that resulted in bodily disfigurement. :p

Rain showers yes. Steady northwest rain (also known as a cali down pour), no. Snow level is about 4800ft. Tested that today. Fresh tracks in snow.

Well crap. I dunno, I have been out of the game too long. Wife and kids are likely to walk out the door @ 0700. I was hoping to be leaving my driveway no later then 0800 (bike in truck to meet spot) but I have no idea where the snowline would be. Anyone know?

Meet at chevron in north fork at 930am. Ride whiskey area sounds good.

Trying to avoid being the cause of a head-on that we routinely pull out of there!
