Ah man, now the cat's out of the bag! :lol:

Now to pick which trail to run. Thanks for the info Rick! Its a great matchup, like lamb and tuna fish 8O Now I gotta try and get the wife to ride with me, I dont think she trusts me, she considered the trip to the cruise in last night an offroad adventure :roll: . How far away is Camp Lyda from Sand Lake? Just wondering whether or not to trailer, I'd rather not but I can. I guess it would be good to have a few trailers there in case someone busts a nut. :fedup:

We went past Lyda camp last weekend. It was where we made the left turn after we were at Little Rubicon and was a fairly large open gravel area with a billboard on the left. It's about an hour drive with trailers. (Figure 28 miles from Tillamook on the highway plus another mile or two back to Lyda Camp on the gravel) Those of us with trailers normally trailer them even if we can also drive them in case one needs to be trailered back. 2 years ago we did need to do so when Ryan busted a rear axle. FWIW, the run I plan to do will be most of the trail we took last weekend except that it should be dry and therefore considerably less difficult. (I expect to be able to drive over the rocks at can opener by then instead of having to go by them on the side of the hill)

Note: Tom will not be taking anyone with trailers on his run as he will be going in at a different spot several miles away from Lyda Camp.

CRAPppppp Everything about that picture screams OREGON or Sw Washington. The only thing missing is the goat. I looked close to see if'n it was a relative, but no JD tractor near the picture, so I'm clear.

I want to go on the difficult run. I made the mistake of restoring my truck and making it built for off-roading, but making it too pretty at the same time. I've got lockers and all that crap. Wondering how tight the trail is. Is it overgrown much?i I like rocks, just not a whole lot of tree branches scraping down the side of my truck which we have alot of in B.C.

There are not a lot of branches sticking out on the trails we will be on as they are fairly well traveled. The group going up to the Crushers (The extreme group) will see tighter trails where they could rub a tree on the way up (If they take the new portion of the trail that was just reopened) and then the crusher loop itself has a couple of trees that are easy to catch if your not careful. It's possible to go through either one without hitting though with a good spotter on the corner coming out of the crusher loop. Most of the trails the difficult group will be on will actually be moderate with 3 or 4 sections that are difficult. On the difficult sections they all have bypasses around them for those that decide they don't want to take them.

I may be running a lot of the same loop from last year, possibly adding a section (if I can find it) but a lot of these are not high usage trails and there seemed to be a lot of tree whips catching my arms last time.

I am backing out of leading a trail ride this year. I may not get to even drive much at SOB. I wrecked my street bike last Friday evening. I hit an oncoming car in a corner, doing about 30 mph. They had just chip sealed the road and the tar was slick and there was some loose gravel in the center of my lane. I lost the ass end and slipped into the path of an oncoming HHR. I blew BOTH airbags on their car, took out the left front tire & suspension, blew the left rear tire out and spun them around in their lane.

I left with a little road rash on my left elbow, a HUGE bruise on my ass and a suspected broken tailbone. I feel like I'm about 80 yrs old. (sorry Roger, maybe not that old).

Ouch. Years ago I hit a deer at 60 and was in the hospital for week and it was several weeks before I was fully functional again so I feel your pain. Rest up and take care of yourself. You will still be out there on the trails in spirit if nothing else.

So I guess instead of leading the trail run your going to be in Pacific City swapping Gold bond cream with PDXBronco and Bronco69er?.... :happyfinger:

Looks like Stan is going to need to bring more beer

No Gold Bond here man, and besides, I'll be out on the trail.
Sorry to hear that Tom, hope you get to feeling better. Glad you're alive, I dont know who we could get to take your rig with a new CAGE suspension and long arms on it ;D

I don't think beer and pain killers mix - but i could be wrong.
