Sounds good. Bring on the KTM's, and how about a few Husky's!

And thanks but this is a team effort, with lots work by many behind the scenes and tons more todo.
If it blows up in our face, we plan to blame Bearhugger! ;)

Sorry to hear that Malachi... maybe you'll miss the ride but hope you can still help plan the B loop and you and the boys can still spend some time at the campsite, it's not far away.

Maybe we could do it again in September! :tup:
