    Hi all im kinda new to the forums and a friend and I are going to try to do MSV/Coney this saturday. Were planning on hitting it early as this is the first time my friend and I have done Coney not to mention it is pry the hardest weve attempted, the hardest weve done to this point is antero/baldwin creek. Although I did help a friend down old tincup route years ago so I've stacked rocks, are there any other pointers or anyone who wants to go along is welcome

    Saturday I've got a family reunion way out in Sterling, or would be up for a trail run.

    Never done MSV or Coney, so I can't give you any specific pointers on the trail.

    In general, I say make sure you have at least one good recovery strap. I've used one or two every trip this year, at least on the harder trails. I think one incidence even required 3 straps. :wink1:

    That's your first clue that Scott, Kevin, and Nick are not normal.

    But Dad I just have to try to get through it!

    I hadn't noticed before who is that flapping his arms over there to the left of Kevin? Is that John "the Spotter"? Hmm must be, bow to "The Spotter" :bow: Wasn't perhaps one of Scotts more sane ventures into the unknown, but it sure was fun trying to get out. Thank goodness for "Digger" Jim ;) ! How about just "Swampie" for Scott :haha: !

    Glad you guys had fun. As a rule, never go anywhere without a snap strap. You never know when you're gonna need it!!
