It has continued to rain since last friday , as I post this the low lying portions of the trails are under water for the second time since friday . Even if it stopes raining tomorrow the trails will not be in good enough condition to ride by July 10. So no ride on the 10th.

Lets try a new tactic...

"I didn't want to ride anyway."

Now we wait
There is absolutely no excuse for what I am about to do.

New Ride date July 17

Checked the trails this afternoon , there are places actually dry enough but mostly still wet with water standing in all the fun spots. What I did find was very minimal damage ,but , everything is really growing.
If Troy and Bert can refrain from the rain dancing for a few weeks :-) I think we may be able to ride by july 17

My family has three gigs to play this weekend. I will sing but not dance. Seems like the Baptist thing to do. My Mother will be proud. :angelo:

Been doing my anti-rain dance so hopefully, this can occur on July 17th trying to clear my calendar to be able to make it.

July 17 ride cancelled

Right on schedule we were blessed with nearly and inch of rain yesterday , good for the crops not so good for riding dirt (now mud) trails.
Lets try this : If you or a group of you want to come riding pick a date give me a call or post here. I will tell you if that date suits and if the trails are dry enough. You can call as short notice as you want, even ,can I come tomorrow ,depending on the situation it could just work. I am here and available most of the time and the trails are ridable most of the time just not the dates I have picked the past 3 times, so now you pick your date , just don't forget to call ahead.
The trails are in very good condition just too muddy for tomorrow.

That has to be one of the best, most generous offers I have ever seen. Thanks Larry!
