Yeah, I was thinking about riding Elkins Friday. Now with the possibility of rain I'll just wait and see. :cry:

Regardless, I hope the snow level stays above 6000'. Last year's 49er was actually cancelled because of snow on the highest trails at Elkins, which are just a little under 6000'.

Yeah, this is very much needed. When the weather does calm down it will be great. No dust, and the woods just smell, look, and feel better after some good rain. As long as the snow stays up higher this is the beginning of the best time of year. :cry:

I'll be going as long as it's not raining. You're welcome to come along, and if the weather cooperates I'll probably be starting around 9:00, and might be staging off Caldor Rd. I'll post somewhere as it gets closer to Friday. :cry:

An alternative to using Pam is silicone lubricant. You can find the product in your local autoparts store for a much better bargain than Pam and it does the "trick" as well or better.

pam or silicone lubricant spray is applied to the under side of your fenders. It prevents large accumulations of mud.

Bob Your funny! man

In the summer you complain of dust and want rain, in the winter you complain of rain and want summer. In Denver you want Calif, When surfing you want that perfect wave, when you get it its too perfect :cry:

I bet you chase kids down the street for playing in your front yard :cry: :cry: :cry: Grumpy old man :cry:
