    ohhh mannn. How am I going to get clearance for this one? It's only a 3-1/2 hour drive from the crib. Going the other direction I could be @ Gooseberry Mesa in half the time!

    This looks fun. Also horrible. It will wreck me for days. But I did just buy lights. Just need to pop my night ride cherry prior, as I sense this isn't the ride to experience riding in the dark for the first time. Or maybe it is. Sh!t, I think I'm in. Both dates would work.

    I'm a maybe, need to see how some dates shake out for next month.

    @buggravy definitely get in a few night rides before this one. Make sure your setup works and the lights function and hold a charge. Nothing worse than showing up only to find out your new light is a dud, the mount doesn't work or you don't like the light for some reason.

    That is very good advice @evdog, but since this is @mtnbikej ’s ride, @buggravy you should show up unprepared and out of shape. Maybe tell everyone the route to do and get the group lost a few times while you’re at it.

    Don’t forget to whine and complain, maybe even cry a little:thumbsup:. Also, J is strong let him carry your water. Oh, aaand...if you’re having any mechanicals, save it for ride day, J will take care of that too:whistling:

    You're leading up the Boy Scout climb. Clear out any falling animal parts for us. :p

    Wrightwood was the scene of my biggest mt bike accomplishment to date. I fixed @Faust29's squeaking brakes and I rode more vertical feet than @mtnbikej! :thumbsup: :cool:
    Oh sure, J had a nasty crash, but he recovered. And I accidentally ditched the other Steve @Stkx66. So there's that. :oops:

    Climbing Boy Scout in the pitch black darkness sounds like an adventure... that exposure is fun and amazing in daylight!!

    Leprechaun in the dark seems a shame to miss all that scenery and funness on the chutes and ladders

    Cant wait to read another RR!

    3 frikken 30 in the morning... :gotnothing:
    I recon if @Voodoo Tom is in, I am as well. I think either date works for me. Like... who has prior engagements at 3:30am in the morning, ever?

    Looks like everyone is flexible.....Sara is only available on the 7/18. So I'm trending towards that date.

    I put it to the wife, her response..... "go and do it if you want but I think your f@cking crazy."

    If my drivers license comes back from the UK in time I reckon I'll be down for shenanigans. Or if anyones driving up from OC and could give me a ride I'd definitely be in!
