After checking the weather report for Sunday, I'd like to propose a switch in scenery. It's supposed to be in the mid 90's at the lake, so how would everyone feel about wheeler pass or Mormon wells instead? It's been a while since I was on either. How rough is wheeler?(wife's super preggo) I know Mormon wells is very rough and I'd have to go like walking speed so as to not hurt her or the baby. I was a little worried about that at the lake too.

....or just do a barbecue at someone's house. I've got room and got most of my crap put away from the move. If its supposed to be 95ish in town, I expect it to be closer to 100 out there. Don't know if that would be too good for the wiffle.

That temp is perfect for the lake! Water and beer make it all better

90 should be perfect for the lake, the water should be cold and complement the temps perfectly. As long as we have shade the wife/kids should be good.

Tomorrow is another exploring day for us. Hopefully, we'll be exploring south of Devils Canyon. There are mines not listed on maps. Davidson, when I get home I'm going to send you some coordinates. Maybe you can help identify a few. I think you have more map resources than me.
No prob. I'll shoot you a pm with my email address .... much easier.

Just like the bumper sticker?!?! Well, I'm gonna be a shade hog!! My white asz will burn lobster like if I'm not careful. I'm too pasty to be in hot sun for too long. Hopefully there will be a VERY slight breeze at least.

Already have your email address from when we traded info to get you and the Mrs. the Phantom tickets.

This is the last year Phantom will be here in Vegas. I thought another casino would pick it up, but they are just stopping production. I really need to see it one more time.

Smith Center seems more suited for temporary events like a ballet or orchestra. There is way too much behind the scenes of Phantom for a temporary venue. I suppose they could reduce the production value to suit a static stage like that, but it just wouldn't be the same.

bonez, you ride? What bike? I'm always looking for people to ride with. I prefer single track but typically anything is better then sitting on the couch or wrenching in the garage. LOL Fast or slow, doesn't matter, I just like the excuse to get out on the bike and it's been neglected pretty badly lately.

Actually speaking of bikes... If anyone has ever wanted to try riding dirt bikes or used to ride and wants to go give it a shot again I have a spare bike I built up as a loaner for friends. Basically, you cover anything you break and chip in for gas and we go cruise. Anything from flat dirt roads if you're a total first timer to as technical as you want to take it. The bike is a 125 two stroke so it's not a power house or anything to worry about but it'll still get up and go. Hit me up if someone wants to take a spin on 1 wheel drive! I've gotta few spare old helmets, spare size 10 and 12 boots, spare chest protector, spare elbow pads, probably some spare knee pads too. Basically I've got all the hard gear covered loaner wise. You might not look stylish in jeans and a long sleeve shirt with all the gear but when you hit the dirt you won't care what you look like as long as the gear does it's job.

Extra bonus points if you're a hot single chick that likes to ride!!! LOL, don't think there's any on here though.

Oh and Merrick, I was thinking... We really should put YSB's phone number on that rolling billboard!!!! If he ever got a call it would be way too damn funny!

I have some sandles, plaid shorts, and a t-shirt... Isn't that all you need to ride a motorcycle?

I used to ride on the street, but never on dirt. I know it's the difference between cats and dogs. I'd be down to hit up some flat trails at first!

I ride quads so no single track for me. But I'm down to ride. Mostly sand dunes in the winter Dumont, Glamis and Imperial. Summer I tend to head up to Utah and do some trail riding.

I also have a Polaris RZR4 if any one just wants to come along for the ride.

Polaris 700 Snowmobile for the winter have not got to really use it yet so looking forward to next winter!

You donít buy it you build it!!
