Default Wed night wheel VAIL

A few of my Vail crew have been meeting wednesdays about 5:30 for some dads wheeling with kids. You need not be a dad nor have children to attend. If anyone is in the Vail area or needs something to do in the high county. This wed 7/16 we're meeting at the US forest 5:30 for Lime Creek to Vail Pass.

Can't make it this wed. Check with me next week.

Just got back. A little muddy in some places, dusty in others. Nothing over 20 degrees. I had to try three times to get up the 1st ledge after turning off Shrine Pass. Had to use both lockers to get out of a mud hole.

No problem unless it's raining. I pulled cable at least 3 times on Yoder after a good rain storm. If it's wet we'll change venues. I'm not intersted in sliding into a tree.

Shoot, I've been wanting to run Yoder Gulch for some time now. Glad to hear the trail is still open. Have fun.

My friend Walt is interested in breaking in his locked 80,but is fairly new to wheeling. He "used to own a jeep". I fear this may be too much for him. Corbet you cool with doing McAllester's or Weariman's instead? and Yoder on 8/13? Scott, would that interest you? or anyone else? We run it uphill as discribed in the above article.
