ok this "loonie run" its pretty hardcore from the looks of the video and pics I found on the web.
question: what would you say is the min. you need to run these trails. excluding the most impossiable climbs of course. just the min. needed to keep up with the group.

example. lockers tire size winch ect.ect.

Sound sucks, but the sights are amazing. Just a few weeks to go!

Bad Company it all depends what group you follow, but I'd think no lockers, 35s with a winch would be fun, at least on the two tracks. And there are many of those. Curly could tell you better than I.

BadCompany, that videos shows the "road" to get to the trails...

Pm "southofsanity" for any and all questions. Curly owns the property and would be the best source for your answers. You'll find him further up the post...

Sorry I didn't know there was a road behind Curly's place. I always thought that was a trail?

Hahaha... That's about as close to a road as you'll get compared to the rest of the area... I did not mean to be an ass, and hope you didn't take it that way. I was just getting him to get hold of Curly with questions. Curly said he'd prefer to answer anything that needed answering.
