Plymmer will finally have his revenge on all those who photoshopped him over the years (you know who you are):

After he'll be done dragging you 100 miles through Henry Coe, he'll leave your sorry corpse to the kittens...

Just kidding, of course. Sorcerer, our apologies for the conflict with the trail work but we feel our physiological and meteorological window of opportunity closing, it may be our last chance for the season.
Anyone care to join? If not for the whole thing, we could use some rabbits and/or pacers. Descending Spike Jones/Timm and Cross Canyon at night is quite a trip, more than worth the hassle...

You guys are fkn crazy!

I wish I had the stamina to do that...

Have fun!
What d-bug sez...

We'll be missing you at our lunch break, rest assured that you'll be the main topic of conversation. (burning sensation in the ears...)

Ratpick; if you get back to HH around 3~4 PM you might still be able to claim your prize! (assuming you maintain your current lead)

Thanks; not sure we have the stamina ourselves... we certainly have the insanity.

El Hombre told me he hired the *Belgium bikini team to apply Chamois Butter free of charge out at Mississippi Lake, sorry to ruin the surprise Dirk.



* (In case of the team being late, application may be done by any other Belgium in the area at that time)

Any guestimate what time you might reach HQ? I'll be out there, but wouldn't want to wait around too long for you slow pokes.
HQ ETA is 6.30am - 7am, aka dawn...

Hey now, don't spill the beans!
Do a Google Image search on "Belgian bikini team" to see what you may miss.

The second part of your message isn't quite accurate though, TahoeBC, not sure where you get your info - or chamois cream - from.

Note that in emergencies, enriched Mississippi Lake pond scum dredged up by Plymmer himself may be utilized instead.

So bummed I can't swing this. Been a long time since I've satisfied a Coe urge, and what you are drumming up strikes me as spectacular.
No worries, Coe will still be there. Next year perhaps? I plan to keep this going, though I may decide to just 'host' once/if I get it done myself...

Crazy, did 1/4th of that today and I'm beat.

Weather, trails, views, everything was perfect today. Should be great for your ride.

Drove by J waving at me just past the fire station on the way in. Someone put some barricades up on the road where they did the streambank repair, but there is no obvious reason why. There was lots of trash/empty bud cans/mickeys 40oz/etc at the hot springs bridge (they did leave a full budweiser that I took with me). Thanks to the person who took the little pile I put together. J thought maybe the partiers put them up to avoid being disturbed?

Great day for hard climbs, traction was perfect. Rode up Jackson, down dexter (never done before), up serpentine, down spike jones, up cullen trail from grizzly gulch side. I really liked it and ALMOST cleaned the whole climb (one 15' stretch of what seemed like a 50% grade got me). Man that was super steep, I see why its not used much. Still had a bit left in me and rode Anza to Grapevine up to the Cattle Duster intersection. Highlight of the day was a Golden Eagle eating a rabbit in an oak tree about 1/2 way up. Man those things are big.

I wish you good luck on your ride!!

Just had lunch with SecretSquirrel, he's not sure he can get up that early, but if so he plans on bringing the portable massage table for some sunrise rub downs.

In any case good luck all, and hope you all have a happy ending ;)

Ideally, we'll get to the top of the Wagon climb to see this again:

.. and roll into Hunting Hollow just as it gets dark. But we're prepared to go into the dark. Hope we see you there!!

14 miles left... Moving slowly but surely. Turning into zombies though... Dexter descent is next.
