    It was a good day. We ran the trail forwards and backwards.

    I didn't have a very good camera bitch, so I don't have many pics.:haha:

    Mr. No-Show firefighter184 pulled his usual stunt.

    B_to_C had some bad luck, flat tire and lost bolts. Other than that it was a nice clean trip.

    Good meetin' ya Bo.

    C-ya all for OCG April 8th for my birthday run.

    Are you and the crew going to be running any of the trails closer to FC anytime soon? I want to get a run in soon but I want to get a tester run in on something closer to FC like Moody or whatever has at least a few good obsticles or a good play area. I need to get some seat time/shakedown in again on some closer stuff before I drag my K5 3-4hrs. to abuse it.

    I also want to run LH/Carnage sometime in the next couple months. The Jeep Rubicon boys in my Apt. Complex ran it and are scared to run it again so that has challenge to me writen all over it. :D

    Well hell if you stole the goodies off my K5 at least I will know they will get used. I always thought John would steel it first but then he will never use it more than just sit in driveway:haha:

    Nick has pictures and even some video ready to post. He was going to do it last night, but his computer froze up in the process. Hopefully he'll get it done tonight.

    Harley, unfortunately there is much open that's close. Moody and Crystal have been closed down for a few weeks now.

    I think the only thing open that's close is Sevenmile, and that's just snow bashing. Really LH/Carnage is the only thing "close" that's open.

    I've got too much going on to get a run in before OCG on April 8th. Maybe Bo's headed up that way.

    Someone needs a front locker :whistle: :laugh: Looks like fun was had by all. Cool vid. Scott, what PSI are you running your MTR's at on the trail? One of these days I will make a run I promise.

    What trails are closer to FC that have some rocks on them?

    I don't know who you are to be calling the baddest dude of all time a camera bitch. I may have to make Nick take the bad ass photo's I took off the internet. Then they can make it to you for a small fee!! :mad:

    Yah that was a pretty nice day out in the trail. Next time hopefully the video will come out a little better quality. The worst part is I was sober when I took those but I was freezing my ass off.

    What do you Colorado guys think about an end of April trail run? The weekend around April 27th I have everthing being set up to tow my stock as all hell(at the current moment) blazer to the trails of the Rocky's. And thats when I'm planning on going North.
    Hey Scott it you call Nick's truck soupy, then mine is going to be a little stale. :haha:

    Hey Lev, you did a very nice job.

    For those that weren't there this kid ran up and down the steep trail all day taking photos and video in 10 to 20 degree weather. He's a character.

    My truck is nearly as stock as yours, 3 on the tree is running a stock 70 Blazer, as long as the boys have mercy we'll be fine.

    If you hear someone say, "don't worry you can do it" run away fast. :D
