    Ok, it's been a week and a half since the first run. I'm starting to build the route for the second half.

    Likely start: Calpella-make for the coast and back.

    This time I'll include options for adding more technical sections if there is interest.

    Let's throw out some dates: ????

    what time works, thinking a month out at least (lower water levels-warmer weather)



    hopefully we'll avoid any enduro events on the same day that will require last minute rerouting.

    Hell maybe I'll even fix my clutch by then. (doubtful)

    Sounds great! If we can wait at least one month, all the better. I'm recovering from a pulled back muscle, but a month should be enough time to heal, I damn well hope... really want to go this time! m.

    Bummer, looks like I'll miss out on the second half.. My wife is expecting either late May or early June, so I gotta stay close to home those months..

    Just a reminder guys, the "real" Sheetiron 300 is the weekend of May 18 & 19. (I don't think our small group of TW riders should mix it up with 500 hardcore enduro riders)

    What ! ! ! !



    That's a pretty lame excuse . Clearly you weren't planning ahead last August/September.



    I guess we'll give you a pass this time, but next time keep your priorities straight .



    (Seriously, we all hope everything goes smoothly the next couple of months)

    The middle of June 'round here usually is not "Too hot", and the closer you get to the coast, the cooler it gets. So leave Capella in Am, not too warm, at the coast, likely 60 degrees, 70+ degrees in the redwoods, & by the time we get back to Capella, it's cooling off. Just throwing that out. Any time in May / June will be nice weather. m.

    Ok, built the route and way points, looks like 130 miles this time. I'l get a list of trail/road names and run them by Joemama to see if we should add more miles. How does Saturday June 1st or Saturday June 8th look?

    Looking for a list of who's interested?

    thanks Josh
