Mike: I've been on the trail with you a time or two and I think that you and your truck would have a great time on a trail with like-size trucks and experienced drivers. I know the spike can be a long day, but I could really use your help leading it. It is tough to find folks to lead the tougher trails. How about leading the Spike on Thursday? Sincere thanks for stepping up and helping us out at CM2012.
Besides, I'm saving all the metal mashers for Neil Q. Neil has led Metal Masher at every cruisemoab I can remember. (just joking, Neil! We'll try to keep you from another Masher trip!)
Hope you get your winch, Mike. It is very rarely needed on the trails we run, but I know it is handy for helping people keep the front tires on the ground on widowmaker too!
