I'm scouting it out on Friday evening to get to the trailhead for a zero dark thirty climb on Saturday, so if I remember I'll give you a road report.

I'd come back to ride with y'all on Sunday but I hate going so slow. :p

Uh, I think you're speaking tongue-in-cheek there, but for those that don't know, it's not always slow on the return... :eek:

Nowadays, though, spirited riding during the event is discouraged. Best to leave that for a weekday...

Just came through there today. Smoky as hell. Big fire just SE of Washington Pass. Road is open and in great condition

Yeah, my climb got cancelled because they closed all of the land in the Washington Pass area because of fire danger. :(

Glad you scouted for the kids.

We got the word last night that the Early Winters Spire area will be open, so I'm back to climbing. The climb leader was concerned about me riding back to Kidnap county after a day on the mountain, so he has offered to haul my butt in his car. Naptime for the old guy. :D

no pics....didnt happen!

No pics because everyone was busy evading the fuzz... The Monkeybutt is a great ride, but the WSP has been all over it for the past few years. Bunch of buzz kills if you ask me.

Only 4 total units that we seen.When we were fueling up in Marblemount 2 Westbound riders informed us of their Location.Mike and Peter were not so lucky and Met two of the Units that were exactly where we were told they were.Funny thing is Peter knew where they were...

Thumperpilot Aug 23rd 2018 09:14 PM

Maybe Arnbo has a few pics?
Mike posted some on FB and the smoke was insane in Winthrop!
I didn't make it this year as plans changed. I'd earlier talked with West about it as he mentioned possibly coming up to surprise everyone...
The "Little Tail of the Dragon" and the siren song of a thousand corners called to me and I had to head south to enjoy riding my bike that weekend in OR...
Highest corner count in one mile was 18 earlier in the week, but I forgot to count over at the Dragon...
