Not a ton of notice, but I'm going on a quick pre-run to make sure we can get all the way for MEG's 2 (although I can't make it to the event).

Plan on having lunch there or as far as we can get.

I'll be running GMRS radio. I have traction devices, winch and, compressor.

Come join me! Thanks for the Route Steve!

Awesome! Glad you guys could make it.

I concur the RSVP isn't working :( I can't get the coordinates to save appropriately either. Lame.

I'll mention it in the support thread.

Seems like the coordinates are sticking. it is now at the mobile station on the map. They are just not showing correctly on the Rally Point page.
@Michael and company are still working out the bugs on Rally Points.
It's a work in progress.
In the future try to put as much detail as you can in the text of the post. The Lower section (NOTES) lets you format it nicer with color and fonts sizes.

For now Looks like we'll have a couple people on the run.

Hey all - We are aware of some issues with Rally Point right now. We rolled out new features and it broke a few things. We are addressing this with the developer. Thank you for your patience!

Looks like there are two options to get there.
The track more to the West looks to be "faster" more asphalt. We need to explore both.
For those not able to spend the night it would be nice if there is a VERY easy trail there and back.
Check out the google link and I have attached gpx and kml files at well.

Sounds good. Looks like the west track is all pavement.

Maybe we attempt the east track first, if we make it all the way we return via the west track? Otherwise, if we can't get through east, we loopback and go west and try that way. I'm hoping there's been a lot of melt in the last week.

Thoughts?

Sounds like a plan. You have the lead on this one![emoji3]

I'll have my older daughter with me. She has Cerebral Palsy, in a wheelchair and doesn't talk. I'll be paying attention to the road/trail and her. I'll need to be in follow mode for the day.

Nice! I wish I could but I've got to be back in the office at 0 dark 30 on Tuesday :-/
Glad you got your tent replaced! Will this your first night out in it? Bring extra layers! Yeah, the ground it hard, but it's also insulating, or so I found out our first night out a couple weeks ago.
