Default Oops!

Sorry, I had overlooked Kevin's post regarding 6:30 at Gateway for meeting time and place and will be there at that time. Guess I better put on the LTBs in case the 80 boys want to dare a little 60 series into doing something stupid!!

So its Gateway still? Steve, only thing you'll need extra is a hockey mask and a chainsaw!

Gateway at 6:30 - roger that. As the moon is nearly full tonight, a hockey mask and chainsaw are mandatory requirements! So is warm clothing. Others should come out for the fun and the spectacular scenery that Nugget Hill provides.

Hey, how'd it go on Friday? I just got back a couple hours ago from running it today.. went up with my friend Mike (he had the Xterra on last year's night run) and a friend of his from work in a built up Rubicon.. had this swaybar disconnect where you just pull & twist a knob, anyone ever seen those? pretty trick..

Anyway I was glad to see the trail wasn't completely groomed.. definitely easier in most spots, but that one spot after the mine but before the switchback into "rocker alley" is still pretty big.. I had to twist the dail all the way to make it through, took the bypass on the way back down. Also had fun screwing around on that ditch right after the saddle.. yeah I'd probably go there again...

It was an awesome run! Nearly a full moon, lights as far as the eyes could see and SA Ocktoberfest to wash down the snacks! We had considered going back down right away and then go up Castle Gulch but we were having too much fun atop Nugget Hill so we stayed put. Any more fun and you would have to put us in straight jackets and lock us up! :p

Yup, what he said - it was too much fun!! Thanks to Kevin for getting the run done and for the Oktoberfest which was the perfect choice and thanks to Robbie for the chips, guacamole and the "no Kevin, that isn't nuts, get your fingers outta there" salsa. It was dark out even with the full moon on top of Nugget Hill! Special thanks to Ty for the grins along the way.
It was good to see that Gillespie isn't totally graded out but we'll have to see what happens with the possibility of mining starting back up, up there. It was a fun run and makes me look forward to Nakman's Spooky Night Run coming up next month. Night wheeling rocks!!
