Yeah me and a buddy are going to stage around the 5 corners area. Should be there around 10am. Only plan we had was to ride from 35 in pipi area and take 36 up to Elkins flat area. Wouldn't mind doing a couple good loop rides.

Mr. Appendage lives 20 minutes from Elkins. He knows that hill like the back of his hand. If you can, look for him, I used to think Elkins Flat was kinda flat.

Then he showed me a few trails. Almost killed me. (Show 'em that hill of death) ;)

If you are up at 5 corners then you and Tford713 can all meet up for a good loop.

Did a 99.8 mile loop last Saturday - it was awesome.

Tford where are you coming from, I thought I remember seeing you were from the east bay. (I'm in Discovery Bay). Any interest in carpooling?

Let me know what you guys are driving and riding so when I get to 5 corners I can see you.

I will be riding the beat to Hell XR650L.

Runs great - just been through a lot.

Sundays are out for me for a while.

I am building my wife a Jeep and we just finished fabricating the frame and

installed the running gear and am now wiring for fuel injection.

It is a long process - so I keep Saturdays to ride and Sundays for that.

Still2Smokin - hurry up.

It will be dusty up there real soon.

Still not sure if I can go, I promised my wife one day we would go water skiing, she still isn't sure what day she prefers.

If I do go I will be in a Silverado crew cab with a yz250f.

I will be trolling around 5 corners at 10:00 am.

I will be riding from my house and will have a couple of hours in when I get there.

Once there, we can decide what routes we want to see.

Now I want to go to Elkins again! Damn. It just ain't fair!

:foul: :foul: :foul:

Take 'em to The Hill of Death! Going UP is a no brainer, you'll never make it. I've never seen anyone make it. Ever. It's going DOWN that puts hair on your chest! I wanna hear the carnage report. Pictures! Pictures!

Oh, I can hear it now...................... we didn't go......................... it was too far................... it was too hot................... the sun was in my eyes! I did it but I forgot to take any pictures! :p:lol:

Tford,

If I do go, you and your friend are more than welcome to jump in my truck. I head thru Lodi on my way up the hill.
