Bummer.

Despite my best efforts to plan and arrange my life, I have too many balls in the air at the moment so I am going to stay home this weekend, train on the snow bike, and use the 20-24 hours (best case scenario) that I would have spent in the car to knock down "the list". I have been looking forward to Camp Lynda for months and I am extremely bummed to miss it. The three days of excellent training is only a part of it...the people were an even bigger draw for me.


Lynda's pic of the Jem Trai...I would have gladly honored the singleness of the track!

A major item on "the list" is to do a final recon of the Togwotee Winter Classic 100-mile route. I have been in communication with Togwotee Lodge and/or the head of Wyoming's snowmobile grooming program almost daily. The state is a bit behind this year in getting their trails marked and groomed and our constant stream of storms has added to the challenge. I feel confident in the current route but I also feel a responsibility to the racers to see it in it's entirety prior to the race.

You'll be missed, I was looking forward to riding with you. But, you can come on out anytime.

Thanks Dave. I will definitely make it to St. George this spring. Once I get back from AK in Feb I will be ready for some sun and dry dirt.

We missed you out there in the dirt Dave. Good luck with the snow race, and up in Alaska. I can't wait to hear all about them.
