Going to do one of those hot, sweaty, dusty, July rides. 18th-20th from Mountain Top in Crumpler. I'm sure there will be enough dust to go around! Feel free to join us!

Would love to get out and ride Lee but I'm afraid if I leave the better half at home I might find all my worldy goods in the yard when I got back

You guys are always welcome. Always.

And as always, I'm getting the piles ahead of this trip.  Does it happen to ya'll too?

They are becoming more 'defined' and migrating themselves to the staging area.

We went, we rode, and boy did we do some sweating! Most of the sweat was expended on I/R trail 82. It took all 8 of us to get all 8 of us past one spot. This was after I did a 1/2 barrell roll on the same trail. I didn't take many pixs but here are some DangerDave took..

At the cabin...prior to our ride...


Crawling down #82...it's far worse than it looks! The RZR made it look easy.

Nice pictures - thanks for posting. Glad everyone had a good time.

Did you just happen to be going to right direction on 82 (down) ?
or did someone know to travel it in that direction vs. going up....

Well, in all honesty we turned right one trail too soon.  We didn't ride it on purpose.  With purpose maybe, but not on!

Yeah its all fun and games until you come across something like that. Nothing like a long wheelbase and a roll cage to make something look easy is there Smile

I drove kevins and then watched him come down. There is something to those things, that's for sure.

Thanks Scooter. It was 55-60 miles each day. Not a lot as compared to some other rides, but quality all the way!
