Brad,

When I drew up the route yesterday I just sort of ended it at "E" so it really isn't a specific location. Can you help me pin point a specific spot we can share with everyone?

I do agree with you that we should stage somewhere else as the place I specified might require a BLM tag.

Take Care
Bill

One question before I leave, do you guys ride in the summer when it's 110 degrees out? Just stick to higher elevations? See you all next year!

Hey Don,

I pretty much ride year round and like to head up higher in the summer months. The cooling vests do help a lot once it's gets above 105 that is when it really starts to get to me.

Looking forward to seeing you next year, it will be here before you know it.

Later
Bill

What about that big parking area on castle hot springs road just before the stop sign at the t intersection? That'll handle a lot of people.

Aaron,

I have been slowly putting together gear so I can start doing some bike camping. If it's OK I may join you.

Hope to see ya Saturday but don't want to put you in the dog house

Eric,

I will put the route in a GPX format and send them to you. If I can do this on DR with my skills I am sure you will be fine. As always we can adjust the route / plan as necessary.

I still have the tow ropes from sheep's bridge

Take Care
Bill

You should come Bill. I have any gear that you are missing, so we could coordinate a little. PM if you are interested.

No, it's where the road is still paved. You turn onto chs road off of carefree hwy and follow it almost to the t. I just looked on google earth, and it's about a quarter mile before the t. And you can see vehicles parked there.

Yes! That's it. We park there a lot when we ride that area.

I might not be able to make this ride on Saturday due to something that has come up. I will let you know tomorrow for sure.

On another note, thinking about this way up to CK the back side is a tough ride and I don't want to mislead anyone. Although it has been graded and some of the really hard spots are no longer around, it's still has it's challenges. They are short challenges but I would not want anyone to ride this that's not ready for it.

Good call, brad. I was wondering if you were trying to witness some carnage or something!
