Right on man, I love the Howell lake loop. You cross that particular creek and the rocks disappear! The dirt out there is so nice when it is wet..ish. I hear ya on those whoops dewd. I have never ridden my TW there but even on my WR250 they get old! I remember ridding there in spring and my bike was cleaner when I left than it was when I showed up!! I have been thinking of takin my TW there because I can just jump on the ferry and be there in a jiffy. Wanna go? I certainly would not ask my macho big bike buddies to wait up for me on the TW. Cuz as you know there is no pinning it through the whoops on a TW. Let me know. I live in Edmonds area.
