If my friend comes (likely) I'll be doing the moderate regardless, so you can stick me in there for now.
Welcome aboard! You'd be ok on the "Difficult" trail, but be warned it has considerable brush in spots that will pinstripe your rig. If you're ok with that, then you'd be fine. I'll put you in the "moderate" group for now, but you can always change your mind, it's not written in stone, lol!

I'm OK with that. Game time decision then .

For anyone coming from the south bay, I reserved a campsite for Friday night at BOTHE-NAPA VALLEY SP, CA for $43. There are a few left, its about 2/3rds of the way there. Depending on who is going with me, I'll let ya'll know if I have extra space.

I can't remember who, but to the guys whose stuff I have from Hollister: Since I am not going on this run, and am leaving for 60 days May 8th, I won't see y'all until August. So, that means you won't have your cutting board, mag light, tea kettle until then. If that's ok, then we'll leave it at that. If you want it sooner, you can cruise to Vallejo come and get it. I have cold beer!

Have fun and be safe out there guys.

Well, it wasn't written in stone, did the "Difficult" and received significant pinstriping and a new noise in my clutch. Can't say you didn't warn me about the first part.

Thanks for organizing, tons of fun!

We should get the group together and just screw around with the GoPro's taking turns filming each others rigs in action. Maybe mess around in the creekbed or something. Been thinking about maybe a small run up the creekbed of Middle Creek to the base of Elk Mt. hmmm!

We did a video last Saturday cruising in the water at cow mtn. This time I drove and my daughter recorded It and her boyfriend took some still shots too. I'll upload to YouTube whenever I get home tonight.
