So now that we have hammered out a date I have made an official thread.

This will be a TWO day ride, an actual overland experience.  We will ride half of the trail on Saturday, and the rest on Sunday. 

This is a fairly tough trail. 

Recommendations
-At least one locker
-Skids
-Sliders
-Recovery points


It is located in NF lands.
These directins will drop you at the foot of the Jeep trail.
From 311 in New Castle: 
turn onto 615 (left if coming from Paint Bank area)
turn left on 609 (Sand Plant Road) 
turn left on 611 
turn right on 617








I have never been, so I am hoping Larry is game as he has been before, the trailhead is kind of hard to spot.  




We will all want to meet somewhere before hand, a gas station or something of the like.  Hopefully Larry can help give us some pointers.

I should still be game, and after talking to Larry it sounded like he will be ready for it too.

Anyone else game?

Doesn't look too bad, if you've got a locker and armor you will be fine
