Sorry, soap box just snuck out.
You have every right to hop on that soap box. The kids are our future and they are the first to get short changed.

Off my soap box now ...

Hey Joel

I'm finding a bunch more unused stuff in my garage to add to the raffle booty.


Think anyone wants a pair of unused size # 15 motocross boots..... What was that they say about shoe size .....

I have done that loop three times now.

It is a long day you have got to make sure your entire group is up to the task, one not so good rider will increase the time of the loop by a good margin.

You also want to make sure you have the range (or can carry enough extra) because once you are around crankshaft (assuming that is the loop) your kinda stuck distance wise if you have to backtrack.

Regardless have fun, it is a good loop (wonder what the sand will be like this year around the dune) and bring extra flashlight.

Also make sure you sign up on the SAR page (Post 5) with your contact and tracking info that way we can keep an eye out on your dumb assess when you don't get back to camp by 9pm (Yes I am pointing at the Israeli right now )

Maybe you will be lucky and someone will stage at the hot springs with gas, but plan like that is not going to happen.
