My doc thinks that I may be able to get away with just physical therapy but I won't know for sure until I see the orthopedist.

Shame to hear the bad news. :x Hopefully in the fall you guys can make it. :D

I might be tagging along with Jerry and Leland on Thursday, yesterday was a washout with hail, rain and tornado warnings. :x

I did make it out before the rain though and had to take a picture of this sign... makes me wonder if someone f/up and didn't notice the power lines to warrant someone else putting up this sign. :roll:

Remember to bring a good fire extiguisher or two in your rig...a hummer (during military exercises) and a range rover (just a normal dude running the trail) have caught on fire and burned out completely on the trails this season already.

They added some towers fairly recently so while there are still some spotty areas, the service isn't terrible like it used to be.

I got back from a work trip late last night so packing up this morning and heading on out, see everyone soon!

Stuck here until I fix a left side CV axle. More grease didn't do it. I was a maybe until Wed, and still thought I'd make it. Not happening so looking like another fall trip for me. Pretty disappointing, but hope all you other knuckleheads have a safe and fun time. Sounds like its going to be muddy and slick.

Have fun guys. Just got back from the orthopedist. It looks like possible cartilage and MCL damage in my knee. Won't know for certain until I get an MRI, which the insurance company is fighting.

It was an awesome weekend (even though the weather was terrible). We sure did appreciate everyone getting us out on the trails and helping us along. Thanks so much! Met some really awesome people! I, too, can't wait to see some pictures come up since I didn't get ANY. I broke my camera within hours of arriving. :( Can't wait to do this again!

Wow!!...there sure some nice trails up there!!, and we had a great time riding most of them, and a great time meeting Jerry, Leyland, Wayne, Jonathan, Van, Scott and Carolyn, Paul, Dan, and everybody else we met, but names escapes us at the moment!! And have to say special thanks to Jonathan, and Scott and Wayne, for pulling us out of the hole!...3 more inches right Jon?...lol And to all the other noobies out there, comtemplating this trip, do your self a favor, and pin Shaggy down for a "real" answer when he says, "oh we just going to ride a few easy trails"....Shaggy easy, aint everybodys easy!!!...
but you will be a better operator if you follow him, and he wont leave ya out there!!
We didnt break anything, although it sounded like it a cpl times, and thanks to Wayne for the skid plate bolt!!!...we'll look forward to this trip again, and here are a cpl pics of the fun {pre moonsoon}...lol
