I might have to give this trip a try sounds like fun. Always wanted to ride some of the ST down there.

Just get a bigger tank! Cheaper than another bike. The majority of the time will be spent on singletrack. If yours is plated I would look into just solving your fuel situation. Soon I hope to have a more realistic view of length between gas stops and camp.

Those are great, but don't accept gas from Raul. You may be pushing your bike...at night...across streams....and up hills...

Old chainsaw gas in a can Freddie used resulted in pushing, late at night as we finished the Timberline. His new FI ktm 500 did not like the shitty mixture!

That gas was originally from Paul, and it made my chainsaw run like shit too!

Oh c'mon! There is plenty of time to coordinate a 3 day weekend! I think I got it sorted now to possibly take the fall off, and still have a job to return to!

Speaking of that, when do you want to enjoy some beers and play with some routes? That way when we are only halfway through the route at dark, we can blame it on the beers at the planning stage?

Slow..i played and partied all weekend. No, I take that back. I verified the gas station south of Purgatory has normal hours, sells a variety of fuel and basic hot dogs. The gas station in Rico only sells 86, so if that matters to anyone, now you know.
I am getting some shoulder work Wednesday, should give me some down time to play with routes. Hopefully we can start scouting in a few weeks!
