    Anyone have any interest in attempting a semi-major assemblage of TW's next month? Ronnydog and I have been discussing this for awhile and we're trying to plan a weekend that will be mutually inclusive to the most members, in a location that somewhat splits the driving distance evenly for the SoCal and Az. crowds.



    Maybe somewhere near the border. Quartzite/Blythe/Yuma triangle? Elsewhere?



    Busy month for some. Weekend of the 10th. not real bueno for us. Wide open other'n that.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    December is a tough month because of the holidays. Mid January through Feb might be better.

    I'm interested. I also have a friend that might be, but he rides an XT 250.

    Wow, I'd love to make the trip but December is tight. If you end up pushing this to January count me in.

    We could set it up in February, pick a date and place and that would get it past the busy season. Just think-in?

    Another question:



    How many SoCal folks would be interested in a parking lot poser session/breakfast at Hell's Kitchen follwed by a short day ride in MrDNA's back yard on Saturday, Dec. 10?

    Turtlefest anytime after December sounds fantastic! Presidents day works because of the long weekend, but we're flexible.



    Also, I'm good for December 10th at Hell's. Unless it's wet. I don't do Ortega Hwy when it's wet. I'm actually down for Hells Kitchen or Cooks Corner almost any weekend someone is in town and gives me a few days notice to clear it with the boss and open up some time.



    As for riding some local trails from Hell's in December, it will depend on the weather between now and then. The main ridge trail (North Main) will be shut down with today's rain I'll bet. That would close out Ortega Hwy to Saddleback peak if they don't reopen it. That's the ride you really want to take if you are coming down here. South Main Divide stayed open all last winter, so that would leave us with Ortega Hwy to Wildomar/Temecula on South Main and some of the old truck trails, which is not nearly as interesting a final destination, but it is some dirt. It's a weird place. A mountain range, thickly surrounded by city.







    Did I just read "pyro convention in Havasu" on Presidents Day? Hmmm
    Something witty...
