We went up today and did some prerunning. I got out to take pictures and in some spots running along the trail was difficult because the snow was up to my knees.
Sorry to everyone that had to drop
We will be up Thursday night. Our jeep is already up north and has started it's vacation. Now we just need to go join it.

I saw the FB pics you posted, looks like the best snow conditions we have had in a couple years. Leaving after work on Thursday, can't wait to get there!

I was going to go up sometime on Friday. Now considering going up Thursday night. Someone will have to be there early enough bail out RenegadeII on his first run of the day.

BTW, for those interested in my run, I want to pull out early on Saturday morning, directly after the drivers meeting. So pack up and gas up early.

Actually I believe the format is for the runs to leave at 9:30. I would rather spend that extra half hour getting to our destination.

Makes sense, old people get up early and drive slow.

Headed to the barn to fix my motor mount and mount my Co2 tank. I think I will be ready after that.

If you start with us on time, you might have the chance. You whine and complain and you can leave with RenegadeII's second shift.
