This may be a muddy affair. I hope it is drying out after Wednesday's deluge.

I'll run it again next year for sure, hope you can make it then!


1 spot open - plenty of room for extra passengers too.

I ran this earlier in the summer and we got absolutely hammered with rain the night/morning before the run. It made for an interesting, somewhat lateral at times, trip up the switchbacks but the rest of the run wasn't bad at all. Plenty of mud up on the rim for those seeking it!

I'd welcome a little more rain to keep the dust down til we get out there.

Splagg, there is road work being done on 89A from Ft Tuthill to the Overlook just above the Switchbacks on 89A. They have been running a pilot car and having 30-40' wait times FWIH. Hopefully they are not working on Saturday. Our exit onto 89A may be affected if we take the route I suspect you have in mind.

Good to know, thanks. Worst case, if we get there and it's looking bad we can head the opposite way and take another route over to 17 then head down Schnebly instead. (That's the route Dravur suggested)

Living in the Past will be joining if that is OK, Dan. He will be in an FJ62. Good guy, I have run with him before.

Thanks for setting up, and organizing the run, Splagg!

BTW, did anyone pick up a Firestick antenna and failed (brand new) heavy duty antenna spring? I was wondering why it got so quiet after lunch (on the radio). I had only a nub of an antenna mount left and evidence of a broken weld on my 18 hour old heavy duty spring. Aaaaarrrrgggghhhh.

Sorry man about the antenna. CB antenna's seem to always be a problem for me too.

Here's the 2 day aprs track

And the GPS track

This Photo doesn't do this hill justice but up past the power poles, I had to use my Locker to get up it.



Lunch stop


Some (But not a lot) of mud was had

How I spent the evening on Schnebly hill.
