    Yay! I’m doing this one instead of Camp Nelson. Storm trooper garb without the full-face helmet.

    For what it's worth, my initial reaction when I realized I have all day Saturday was "hell ya I'm going to Camp Nelson!" Then I thought about the logistics and spent the rest of the day trying to justify it. I battled hard and gave hell to my rationale, but in the end, the City of Hemet can use all the help they can get to establish a City in which professionals with technical skills would want to reside, and I remember how often I came close to crashing my car on the way home from Kernville on prior kamikaze days. If I'm gonna die because of a Trailhead Invite it's gonna be riding my bike not my car.

    Hillyer in-joke! :giggle::laugh::Roflmao

    Considering tomorrow's forecast, this ride should be either 'Folsom Street Parade' or 'cool suit required':

    Since I'm in on this blast furnace ride, @Faust29 has asked me to post up this change in plans.
    Due to the heat, we will be starting from Chilao.
    7am where the Silver Mocassin crosses the Chilao road.
    Best access is from the Visitor center entrance close to Newcombs Ranch.
    We will be doing what @Faust29 calls the bike park loop. 7 miles+\- per loop with water available on the way. Includes the Wall, Hillyer, and the switchbacks. Options for more if necessary.
    Loops until we're thoroughly cooked.

    Oh yeah, bring a cooler because we roll past the cars after each loop. Cold drinks are soooo good on hot days on the bike.

    @DangerDirtyD @buggravy

    Woo hoo! Bike park day! I've kinda wanted to do this version, but it seems like cheating... :D

    As Ross says above, starting here is really like going to the bike park. We'll park right at the bottom of the chunkiest downhill, so we can use the cars as SAG wagons. I'm freezing a couple bottles right now... :thumbsup: This cuts out the XC stuff at the beginning and end, and just leaves the chunkiest part of the descent. I need practice there anyways... :oops:

    Two loops should definitely be in the cards, and maybe three?

    I updated the original post, but here's the link again to the new parking area, which is only 5 minutes away from the original meet location. You can see the trail to the north of the pin when you open the link.

    Then we'll do the loop in reverse. Gotta make sure we're evenly done. :thumbsup: :p

    Awesome day! Saw some skill on display today from @rossage and Dante the Butcher. Very Safe! Two Smashes side by side with BugGravy. Faustie being a great host. The 26er Knolly in front most of the day. And Bettis saving my ass on the drive home. No photos. It was a good week. Like old times. E1C82D21-826B-4435-A859-924AF90D35FF.jpeg

    Really fun day today. I could have done another lap. Liked that format, and it was rewarding being able to tackle some things I skipped or flubbed in round 1. Silver Moccasin downhill was a blast and a half. Great crew! I'll be coughing up everyone's dust for a couple days. I may or may not have run chest first into a yucca - on video.
