    Can’t take this Tuesday off but I can take lots of days off so hopefully there is another round of this in the near future, been wanting to go to YM for a long time.

    Not exactly in the same league, but that's the same day as the Black Star Equinox ride. Social cruise and beer!

    Gotta practice what I preach with my team at work and give a little more heads up for days off. Literally just got after one of my analysts this week for asking for 3 days off next week last minute... which I approved in the end. I’ll take a gander at my calendar on Monday and hit you up for a mission soon!

    Really want to join in on this one but, we are in the process of moving and the 20th is "the" day to move in. If everything goes smoothly we will be in before then, but you never know....

    I’m an idiot and misread the date, thought it was like 48 hours from now Tuesday. I’ll see what I can do, want to do this.

    Don’t do kids, they mess with your brain! Do drugs instead.

    Hey, you got well pretty fast... :D:thumbsup:

    We'll have to leave it to @Cornholio and @knucklebuster – I could do either day (both days?). It would be great to ride&slide again, pal :)

    Cool..

    Beginning to wonder if I got in over my head for this one after reading previous RR’s. I don’t mind the humility of walking some downs but my fitness is subpar right now and hoping I’m not too much of an anchor on the way up. Got a “race” on Saturday that is only 15 miles and 2k gain so hopefully that warms me up.

    It’s a fun ride....not a fan of climbing Trabuco, but coming down Yeager is a blast. Especially after the ground gets a little wetness this week.

    Plus @mike will show you how to ride down everything. :thumbsup:

    If I get a two hour head start, maybe you'll catch me walking down. :D

    I'm over my head... And will probably walk a lot. I still want to see it, though. mike won't bite your head off for walking or taking our time going up the mountain.

    And with how loose Trabuco is right now, I'll walk more of the uphill than I did the last time.
