I am now me +2. Hopefully we have room. I'm pretty sure we must due to cost factor. This should help bring it down a bit.

Living the dream.
Sounds like I may be one of the first arrivals tomorrow. Will the key be left in the normal spot or should I plan on being at the house at 2pm to get it from the caretaker?

so the lodge will just be open and no one has to get keys?

Not 100% sure. The key should be in it's usual place if we aren't there yet and is being dropped off by the rental office at 2pm.

8:45. Where the hell is everyone? Me, MBC, Greggah and BadDNA already met skiierx and his gang for beer and pizza. Nobody else is at the lodge. MBC got the intronets though!

Awesome riding today. 19 of us split into two groups. The "wimp group" was me, MBC, Paul, Greggah and BigT. The other 14 people rode in the "A group." Our wimp group pushed out 14 miles in 3.5 hours. I am sore.

Now we are beering and eating. As you can imagine, there is a lot of beer here.

I'm back home. Still having trouble talking.

Even being sick I still had a good time even though I may have looked like a stick in the mud.

At least I was able to keep everyone warm :rofl:

Hope the rain wasn't to bad and you guys were able to get a ride in this morning.

Can't wait to see some of the pics.

Great seeing you guys and very cool running into the big group several times Saturday and once this morning. Turned out to be a good day today, even with that quick shower...sun came out quickly after that. All I can say is that I am exhausted, lots of riding all 3 days. Wish we were not so tired Saturday night we had hoped to come down for a visit...next year!

When we were riding on Saturday IAB had mentioned several times that he had seen in the trail office that the JAW trail had been re-worked. In this video @ around the 3:00 minute mark I believe there is some footage of some of the improvements. I remember it being a bunch of mud pits. Looks to be all bridged out. Has anyone ridden it since??
