Can't do a weekday. :(

If you wanted to do it later (>4:30) I would love to do it after work

Open/open with no armor and 32's on Boulder Carnage ... that should be interesting ...

When was the last time you were up there? There's been a change at the waterfall. You should be okay, but its tight.

You should all fly to Spokane with me that evening... WAY cooler :cool:

I'll say hello to my grandmother in Coulee Dam for y'all :)

Can it be done? Sure - I've been with Rich and others who have made it through fine.

Seems awfully stressful to me though, even one tiny little slip and you could be looking at significant damage. Plus you have to take most all the bypasses.

No way you make the slab without a locker (or significant damage) with our wheelbase.

Well, whats the deal? I MAY be up for this, but it'd be evening night run for sure. No can do in the day. Perhaps those of us who can't make the day can do a night run? I'll have to see, but it shouldn't be a problem. I *might* be able to get out of work a little early, but doubtful.

If I finish my finals early, I can probly be there about 5-6 PM. I just have to get a new tire in ft collins (hopefully).

Dude, Nate I just realized I don't have any skidplates. Instead of doing Carnage Friday, I might just try to get some welding done instead so that I can have skidplates in the future.

If I can get that done, maybe I could do a night run wit y'all.

Hmmm. I'm going to happy hour(s), so an evening run is probably not a good idea.

Anybody want to wheel this weekend?

AxleIke
11-08-2007, 08:54 AM
Sooo, looks like there is MAYBE one person interested in the night time? Two if spindle gets his plates done?

Matt, I'm pretty sure you can do happy hour next week, this is WAY better anyway!! :D lol

Where the hell is troy? He needs to be there for the night run. In fact, I'm signing him up, as I want to see the crawler work on the really slow sections. That will kick my ass to get mine put in and be a happy camper. So, Troy's going. Who else?

RedRunnertc
11-08-2007, 11:58 AM
Yeah, I can be there about 5:00.

Okay, well, for the other guys, how about 6? Its already dark at 5 so we won't have to worry about that. 6pm, at the Trail Head. For the night runners, the day guys I think are meeting at 10:30, right?

So, Me, TC, SpindleShanks, and JR94SAS. Anyone else?

I should have my skids done around noon, so I can do 6.
Don't mind saying I'm scared to death of running Carnage at night. I haven't gotten adept at it in the daytime yet. But I'm in.

Refresh me on directions, somebody.

Should be a good run then!

Jeremy - If I was coming from Loveland, I would take 287 south to HWY 66 (WalMart is there), turn right, take that to Hwy 34 as you get into Lyons, turn left. Go a ways, turn right on Lefthand Canyon Rd, stay on that, trail is on the right immediately after a hard, tight switchback to the right.

Not exactly. Mrs Jacket and la familia is in Cortez this weekend. So I can get REALLY happy tomorrow night:xbeer1:

Besides - didn't you get body damage the last time you ran Carnage at night?

Isaac seems to get body damage every time he runs Carnage ... LOL

I'd do it if I had some sliders.... Damn...

AxleIke

No. Never gotten damage at night.

I just ran it at 9pm with my little bro riding shotgun on tuesday night. (yeah, i get bored, and he wanted to go).

The only time i've EVER gotten damage on that trail was from that damn right side line on the squeeze. Once i get my NEW sliders, I'll be ready to roll, and i will dominate that right side. (Yes, i give myself pep talks too).

Mainly i want to see the crawler go, and hopefully, if troy is okay, drive a short distance to see how i likes it.
