Thanks to Tim for organizing yet another fun Spooky Night Run! Great to see some old friends and the new ones too! Lots of folks there! I did not do a count, but it looks like about 19 trucks from the pics I took.

Here's some pics including the "first" recovery effort. It didn't look too...bad at first, but in the first recovery pic you can see where it could of gone...Great work guys!

Big thanks to Tim for putting this run together and letting me ride along. Good friends, good food that's what the SNR is all about! Spooky, spooky conditions on the trail.....pulled enough cable to qualify for a snow run. That recovery of the dude near the top of the trail was awesome, way to go RS.

It was great fun! I don't know if it was because it was the first snow and cold conditons of the season and I hadn't acclimated yet....but it was COLD at the dinner spot! Lets hope there isn't a fire ban next year. A big fire would have made it toasty and even more enjoyable to stand around and sip cider.

Glad to hear the Kingston group made it home without too much drama. As we were heading home we were monitoring the radio and we heard Daniel calling for a strap How much more fun can you have?

The food was unbelievable once again this year, so thanks to everybody that worked on getting it up there and prepped!

Thanks Tim for organizing and all..Wow, I am exhausted and still smiling..

That was a super fun trail, great food and great folks, what more could you ask for?

The snow lightly falling as we meandered through tight pine section was super cool.
