I guess not. There was a KTM in the lot, but I have no idea who it belonged to. Figured inmates wouldn't be hard to spot- you fuckers blend in well.

Maybe someday I'll make it to the Garter. I'm always stuck at work.

HVAC guy

Can anyone recommend an honest/reasonable HVAC guy? I am selling my house and the buyer is requesting a service/"tune up" be done on my A/C. I know a guy that could do it but he is not licensed. I need a licensed/works for a real HVAC company type of guy. Don't want some guy trying to sell my a bunch of extra stuff I don't need/want when I am leaving the house.
TIA

Doh. I was there in spirit. I've been out there three times I'm the last 6 weeks, but always turned back at the 4417a split because "there's no way there's water"/"we're not going down that".

Lmk next time!

I'll let you know! Yeah, that one hill where 4417a splits off is gnarly, on the way in, I dropped all the way down the hill and kind of side hill-ed it out, it wasn't too bad, but when I tried to do the same coming back out I failed to realize how steep it had been coming down and I got bogged down pretty good, I had to double back and come at it higher or I would have never gotten out of the loose rocks at the bottom.

We got a bit of a late start, so we missed the pools, I think next time we'll try to hit those, not sure if we'll be doing the falls again on that ride, or just the pools. What do you ride?

I've used Hamstra Heating and Cooling several times. They may not be the cheapest but I've never felt like they tried to do work that wasn't really needed.

I've gone down that hill (and gone down on that hill) once, but after I tumbled, we were both tired, and we weren't 100% sure which way to the falls, my friend (who I won't name, but he's an inmate) decided not to tackle the hill. It was fun coming up though, just had to have decent speed and even more nerve. I'm on a KL600, or a DR350, or a DR250 depending on how much I like kick starting over being tall and heavy. And of course, depending upon which one is running best.

We all loved the ride, and want to do it again. I'll post up here the next time we go.

You need to do the whole loop...there are some NICE climbs above the falls and then after you drop down to the creek over by Redington Road there is another good one. Better yet, start from the cattle guard just before you get to the turn for Chiva and do the loop backwards...even more challenge.

Maybe I'll get out the quad (250x fourtrax) then. That hill going up at said split didn't seem that appealing at the time I was there.

I'm up for it, though, with a smaller bike.

Yeah, that hill going up at the 4417A split looked like a challenge, but I'll definitely give it a shot next time, it's a beautiful area to ride. We went right after work (midnight shift) and got a late start, next time we'll meet up earlier.
