    Wonder what it's like there in October. I could probably manage a Sunday.

    I might could manage a Sunday too, but I'm not ready for holy cross, I'm not even ready for wheeler lake technically, still haven't addressed the fuel issue...

    Mines not ready right now either, I haven't checked it out since we ran Carnage Canyon. I've got a small list that I know of forsure. I'll have to make it happen by the 14th of next month.

    So in October you'd run Holy Cross on the 14th and Wheeler Lake on the 15th.

    Nate is checking to see if he can get the 15th off, we are trying to figure out what trail to run on the 15th if he gets it off. Thinking about running to gypsum for a trail.

    Change of plans, Nate forgot his dad is flying in the weekend of the 14th. So we are changing to the weekend of October 28th, yes I know it will probably be snowing. We are hoping to wheel Saturday and Sunday and possibly Friday that weekend of the 28th. As it gets closer we will decide what trails we are running for sure.

    Totally down for that. All this time down here and I've never gone over there. Like to see someone tackle it.

    Indy would be fun. I haven't run it in a few years. I heard there was a landslide on Liberty

    Ya it's on the side of the trail, you can climb it if you want. We thought about it last year but it's a pretty nasty line.

    Roger that. I got like 3rd hand information and it sounded like it was a serious slide. I wanted to run it this year but as it sits right now I haven't wheeled nearly as much as I wanted to. I guess life just comes and kicks your butt sometimes!
