Default Looks like I'm in

I got the ok to go. I'll be bringing my 21 month old son. Think there will be any snow? There was plently driving through Buena Vista earlier this week. Think the uzj100 can make it? (do I even need to ask? of course it can. )

Chinaman's is on a West facing slope on the east side of the Sawatch...unless it has snowed recently it should be generally clear (holding snow on Chinaman's is kinda like holding it on the plains...unless it is shady it's going to melt fast...but if you go right after a storm it could be a mess). There are some shady spots that will hold snow...and a couple of them are on nice off camber spots...but all in all Chinaman's is much more like a desert trail than a mountain trail.

We are planning on coming to this as well, and bringing the 100, if I get the arb in the front.(2 pinion carrier makes me nervous)

2 100 on the same trail - cool.

This is going to be great run. It looks were going to have a good showing of veteran club members as well as new rigs. Cruisers new and old all over the place. With a few Runners mixed in.

Last big run we did there, we had 18 rigs. Everyone was prepared and we made it through smoothly.

I will need the tail gunner to hang back at the Gunsmoke a little while to make sure the latecomers get to the trailhead. They will still need to air down when they pull in. Then, the mid gunner will tail gun the first main group. That way we can leave at 10am sharp.

GreenMachine - Uncle Ben, thanks for offering to be gunners.
You guys decide who takes the mid gun position. I expect at least 20 rigs, including the latecomers. Chili, we might need to do some clean-up at Whale Rock. It seems like there always oil in the dirt and on the rock at the Whale Rock obstacle.

On Chinaman's it seems the group gets broken up a bit as people work the optional obstacles toward the end of the trail. This is before we hook back into the trail and descend.

Here a few pictures of Cheeseman (greg), making it up the left line of Whale Rock.
