    What's up everybody!
    The next trail ride is just under two weeks out and we're looking for the club's input. Where should we go?? It had been discussed trying out the Pony area. Has anybody been out that way lately? Snow report?
    Or is there somewhere else that folks are just dying to check out?

    So chime in with ideas or trail reports. We want your help deciding where to go!!!

    Yes, I've done some trails out near Pony and while they were fun and an easy in-out/day trip, they may not be up to the usual level of challenge/excitement (ie no rock climbing) for the members. It was more for just a fun "get out of Bozeman for the day, I want to explore" leisure trip. I'd love to explore more out that way though. That being said, if anyone wants to either follow the route on their own that I mapped using my link that Aaron provided, or if you want me to lead you, I'd be happy to! I just don't think it's a 406 Cruisers-worthy trip.

    Hey guys!
    I'm still on my way back from Overland Expo but wanted to check on interest in even doing a ride this weekend since there hasn't been a lot of chatter. It is memorial day weekend so I suspect some people have other plans.
    So who's interested for Saturday?

    I'm itching to go somewhere... anywhere. We can check out the route I mapped over in Pony. I have no idea what it's like right now (snow?) so it'd be a roll of the dice. It was a nice "get out of Bozeman for the afternoon" trip, but nothing serious (ie nothing technical, not even any rocks). I don't mind taking the lead on it if we get a couple people to go. I wouldn't even mind making it a one night camping trip there at Cataract Lake. I'm up for anything, just throwing it out there. Is Aaron the only one that has the book? I'm just not that familiar with the trails around here to really offer a good suggestion. I'd like to see more ghost/mining towns (Comet?) ... that sort of thing. Someone mentioned Crow Peak Trail but I don't know anything about it. What about Brannan Lakes south of Mammoth? Old Independence trail?

    I'm starting to think that by the lack of input from others, there aren't any real plans for this weekend?

    I'm In for a day trip. Let me know when and where.
    Unfortunately I don't know the trails well enough to make a suggestion.

    Hey gang. Looks like everybody's busy with other plans this weekend.
    So due to a lack of response and interest we are going to cancel the ride for tomorrow. I'll be sending out an email also.

    But hope everybody has a good holiday weekend and gets out to play a little!!
