Thursday we were riding with the Minnesotans, Dave Eric and Kris, Kris led us into a nice little area, we thought we were heading somewhere promising, but then it all closed in on us.

Kris and I poked around in there, but couldn't find a way through.

Break time, right after I got done riding Kris&#39;s Summit. Imagine <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font>&#34; guy on a sled with 10&#34; risers, set up for a guy who is 6&#39;1&#34; Can you say ape hangers? We were talking to John at the banquet about it Saturday night, and John made the comment about me having to stand on the seat to ride the thing. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

If you look closely you can see a few sleds scattered about behind me here. My brother couldn&#39;t fit between the trees and got stuck, what is it with cats and trees?

Day three, we headed up to the Ramada to sign up for the ride in, John found out he was going to be short on guides, and asked if I would take a group out, I said sure no problem. Thinking to myself, man, everything is sooo tracked up, I hope I can find some good stuff. We did. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif There were a total of 10 when we started out from the Ramada, but two dropped out before we got down to the jump off spot. There was myself, my brother, Ridsafe, Scott and Karen, Corey and his wife Jen, and Stewart. Stewart was suppose to be in a group heading north of the bridge, but ended up with my group. We all had a great time, this was the first time off trail riding for Karen and Jen, and they did awesome! I hope everyone had as much fun as I did.

Coming into Toivola. Flat and fast, and a bit nipply I might add.

After we all parted ways, Kimmmer, myself and Ridsafe were on our way back to Krupp&#39;s, when we decided we just HAD to climb this hill. What a blast.

Ridsafe stuck, get out the shovel buddy! He was busy digging, and I was going after Kimmer who was also stuck. LOL. Turns out right before we got to this spot, Kimmer had stopped facing downhill to help Eric out of another spot, and set his parking brake, and then tried to climb the hill with it still set. HA HA HA

Friday night the rest of my usual crew arrived, but before they got there we had to go out on a little search and rescue. Seems two of the Minnesotans dropped down into a ravine, and couldn&#39;t get out. We found them though, there legs were a little tired after walking 2 3/4 miles before we got to them. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gifThis was also when my throttle cable broke. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/sad.gif So Saturday Dave let me use his Renegade, thanks again buddy, and we went riding.

I think the poo was getting deep in the parking lot here at Krupp&#39;s. LOL. Sheesh, with all these long tracks you would think we were out west or something. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

Skylar,

I noticed in some pictures a few weeks back when you were riding John&#39;s Yamaha that one of his hand guards were missing too. Were you the culprit on that one too? http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif
