Sorry - I plan on hitting the 7 mile trail on the east side of 675. Then, I'd like to hit the lower trail head which is 1/4 mile down 675 and is similar, but has trails that branch off. Tighter single/double track, not rocky.

The rock gardens are OK, but I got splorin' to do.

I guess nobody wants to call a time, make it 8:30 in the am. I only know of the one parking area off 675, so I'll be there unloading the dr650 from the dodge pickup. hope to see some of you guys there, I might need the help picking up the bike on the 5th or 6th time.


And the rock gardens suck and need to be avoided!

Joe

I have not posted a time yet since I am coordinating with people not on this forum. We have yet to decide the time we are meeting. 8:30 sounds as good as any other. I'll post up when I know what time others are arriving, and confrim my arrival time.

I will be in a silver Volvo XC70 Wagon, red piece of shit 4x8 trailer, and red XR400R.

And a ton of lime green clothing ala KX.

Hahahah.

I typically park all the way back by the shitter in the shade somewhere.

Yo, Barry. My wife and I went for a drive in the cage this afternoon, saw you headed back east on 211 in the Volvo with XR in tow. It's not often that one sees such a car with a crusty dirtbike on the back.

Barry,


Thanks for the ride! I'm glad I was the only one with a camera otherwise someone might have pictures of my crashes

I'll put a couple here in a day or so. John was the guy with the pickup, what you other buddy's name?


thanks again, Joe
