You will be fine, even if you are premixing.

Guy, flower sniffing tour on saturday?

I'll hook up the GPS, can lead a 2nd group if we get too big if that'll help. Large groups can be a clusterfuck.

Now, where are those spare tubes....

Yeah, once I post up some video and people can see for themselves what I'm talking about, then we'll take a head count and figure it all out. Large groups will definitely be a cluster with the number of hillclimbs involved.

Can't wait!!!

1st gas is less than 40 miles into the route so that folks can tank up the night before and not worry about being ~10 miles into the tank. 2nd gas hasn't been determined yet, but looks like it will be around 50-60 miles. I'm sure there will be some supertankers along that can assist with emergency refueling.

Just watched all of them. (Except for the 46 minute outtake that includes your story about totalling the PD while we rested at the top of Hooper Hollow) I renamed all the clips so I could remember what was in each one. A lot of the clip names have your moniker in the title.

As a hypothetical question: if I were to get home after midnight on Thursday night would it be worth the trouble to try to fly in somewhere and borrow a bike on Friday to catch a couple of nights of CroMag? Of course where I flew to would be determined by who would lend me a bike for such a thing? Seeing as it's almost 1600 miles plus a 6 hour ferry one way landing at the Park on Sunday afternoon at the earliest probably wouldn't have the desired effect?
