Thanks for sharing!

I hate I missed it. I'm only about 1-1/2 hrs away. Been helping put a roof on my Dads front porch. He will be 85 in August. If I had gone he would have been on roof without me (He's not a patient man). Got enough done Saturday morning to keep it dry, but raining by the time we quit. Spent the afternoon napping.
Looks like you guys had a great time. Hope to make it in the fall.

Had a blast out there. I wish we could have enjoyed the nicer weather on Friday, but Saturday's slick stuff made things really fun for a throttle happy guy like myself. We only ran a trail and a half on Saturday, but it's probably for the better, since my front wheel bearing was giving me fits. Although it just was a short run, it was just what I needed. Van, Dan, & Jason, thanks for coming out into the slop with us.

My buddy Joe that was riding with me will upload a video this evening and I'll get a few photos together from the weekend as well. Van, I can't wait to see the videos you took.

Paul, thanks man we had a good time in the slop. It sure gave my little 223T a good run for all she had. Your trooper is a BEAST!
