I hope the trails are nice. I will be heading down for the ride this weekend and I have never been to that area. That is one of the reasons I go on these poker runs, to have a guided tour of a new area. Now if someone can just set one up at Taneum or Mad River, never been there.

Jones Creek is a long dang ways away. 2.5 hours each way easy.

Trails were nice and wide, greasy, loose rock in places, and you were always going up or down. Some fairly long and steep ups and downs. The traction was better than a capitol forest grease but slick enough to cause headaches. Nice views OF MT. HOOD!! and longview. Overall a nice ride with some challenge. The long course was 42 miles, quads rode the whole thing but were either fast or stayed out of the way.

Funny thing was seeing all the license plates from Oregon. Turns out most of their areas have been closed all summer due to fire danger so those Oregonians are willing to travel for some good riding.

The club did a great job, with lots of support. 3-10s got me a fourth place trophy.

Some bozo crashed on a bridge and took half of it out.
