There's a slight chance in hell I might be able to band aid the truck for one more run. Looks like rain on Friday. That would give me time to maybe get it trailer worthy.

Speaking of rain, it's supposed to be wet Saturday. Is the run still on if it rains?

Hey Dawson, Will we have a trail lead with experience on these trails if you can't make it?

You can always ride shotgun with someone.

Normally I wouldn't hesitate just to ride with somebody, but my custody schedule is every other weekend and this weekend I have all three kids. Which I planned on taking with me

Given the amount of rain and lack of a trail lead, should we consider postponing to next Saturday?

I'm going out to Stoddard Wells tomorrow and possibly Box Canyon if there's no flooding.

It looks like JD, Marc (boyfester),and I will be going. Hopefully someone with experience on these trails will be there. Otherwise, we'll find something to do.

Thanks Alex.
You've spent a lot of time out there. Maybe you can lead a group?

As far as my rig, it's gonna be down for a while...
