BTW I am sure if I try this, I will definitely be soaked.

Thanks...

yeah, start at home. fill the tub with water knee deep and get in your disco, soak the boots while you're in it for 10 minutes.

then, go outside and walk around the block. you'll get the feel of being soaked.....

I am full of ideas... I am just scared of being expelled if I disclose them here.
I will take any route that majority choses to ride. If I fell hot, I'll just jump into any creek.

WTF are you talking about? I can't find anything about the North Rim of the Grand Canyon being closed Memorial Day weekend.

I'm riding it this weekend, so you're welcome to join me.
