Dang Bob, I can't wait to see it and would come out and help (or bring energy drinks for the diggers) but I think I'm going to Gallup tomorrow to get in Al's and Curtis' way.

Let me know if you can wait, but cheers to you if you don't want to!

Bob,

The camping area at Gallup is a little sparce and down in the flats. There will be two port-a-potties out...one in our pit area and one at the spectator parking area. It is very close to the riding areas though. Lots of room for Campers, RV's or tents. Just hope the winds stay calm!

Here's a photo of the eastern pit area that we will use with the Hog Back in the background.

Garrett could not wait to try the tire. He hit the tire in second and bounced more than 2 ft above the tire landed on the front tire, nuts in the bars and nearly endowed. Dang I missed the perfect photo!!

Actually, you are right! Looks just like a shorttrack!

They have 6 oval shaped pit areas there...we will be in the farthest eastern two of them.

Thanks Bob!

That is great! What an improvement!

Sorry I couldn't be there to help. Aren't you supposed to put a dead chicken under something like that for good luck?? Never mind, wrong country.

I was out helping the guys set Gallup and being their guinea pig. Lotsa fun and they have some great sections going. It is really coming together better than I thought it would. I'll get some pics up later, but it really does look to be a great event!!! Thanks Al and Curtis!!

Ouch, I am sore.

Here are some pics of the sections that Curtis and Al have set for you guys.










Here is Curtis checking how a line rides:






That same section from up trail a ways:




The loop is cool and the scenery is spectacular from the ridges along the loop.







The clouds were pretty nice yesterday. Looking like NM in summer.




Thanks again to Curtis and Al for setting the upper sections and Brian and Lorie for setting the lowers. This takes a lot of commitment to th e club. They are doing a lot of work and all we have to do is show up, ride and enjoy!!

It was indeed very warm on Sunday with beautiful blue skies...windy by Monday afternoon. Nothing sighted but a few lizards though.
BTW...Ron said to use the eastern yellow gate to the pit areas now instead of the western gate. He said he would have it open for you guys.
