Thanks Dave for leading this Great run again! My rig broke down in South Fork (crankshaft bolt came loose, ruined the Harmonic balancer ) Got it towed to the mechanic in town, stayed the night and got a ride into Denver the next day. Waiting on parts and will make another trip to pick it up. Ill post some pics soon!

What's up, bud! Your 40 is looking amazing since I last saw it!

Yeah, I wasn't really in the market for one but my family back in Texas has been wanting to come out and do some runs with me, so my Dad caught the 40 bug and he and I went in on a 40 that popped up down in Abilene a few months back.

The previous guy built it up pretty nicely, so it keeps me from being tempted to go SOA on the 62 to handle larger trails.

My traveling has slowed down significantly so I'm hoping to get back involved with you guys more.

I'm surprised we never crossed paths over the weekend.

The Durango crew was camped in Velocity Basin closer to Silverton. We also ran Poughkeepsie on Saturday but hit the wall late in he afternoon on our loop back.
