    Ride Name: Wrightwood 7/15
    When: Sunday 7/15/18
    Time: 2:00 pm
    Where: Jackson Lake main parking lot
    Ride Description or Details:
    Feel a little weird posting a ride so soon after @Mikie's crash but I know he won't mind! Paved and/ or dirt climb up to East Table Mountain trail (aka Table Top) with a bonus loop I found recently. Down to Hwy.2 through Mt. High West to the 3 Jackson Lake trails where some other trail options may be explored. Some moderate exposure and chunk in a few places but nothing major. 4 mile climb to start, the rest in the 3 mile range depending on options. Trails should still be in great shape after this week's thunderstorms.
    ~~~~~ Optional Details ~~~~~
    Meet Location:
    Jackson Lake main parking lot.
    Skill Level: Intermediate
    Ride Pace: Social Cruise, Easy with Moments of Effort
    Type of Ride: Out and Back, Loop
    Rider Limit: None
    Anticipated Mileage: 15-20 depending on selected options
    Elevation Gain: A copious amount
    Ride Duration: 3-4 hours
    Previous Ride Reports: Many
    Possible Bail-Outs: After climbing back to Big Pine Hwy after East Table Mountain trail; once you climb to Inspiration Point might as well go down any of the 3 trails to Jackson Lake but you could go down the way we climbed up if you want.
    Facilities: Nasty outhouses at Jackson lake; flush toilets and water at Big Pine and Grassy Hollow (if it''s open)
    Food/water suggestions: I'll bring 100 oz. and will refill either at Big Pine or Grassy Hollow and 1 Clif Bar.

    Yes I do! Since I retired all of 6 weeks ago, I lose track of time easily:confused: and I'm getting old! I'll make the change. Thanks! Can't figure out how to change the title though. Ideas?

    Congrats on the retirement! :thumbsup::cool:

    PM @Mikie, he can adjust the title for you. I'm sure he's bored to death by now about laying around.

    Thanks! I gave it a shot using the edit feature but the title wouldn't appear! I could highlight the 6 but it wouldn't delete or replace with the 7. I hate computers almost as much as I hate climbing:mad::confused::gag:!

    Members can’t change the titles. Keeps them thinking rational and not doing something they are going to regret later. :thumbsup:
