    I think we could use our own trip reports thread so we can keep the Upcoming Events thread for planning. We can use this one for posting pics and videos and letting people know conditions.

    Oh yeah, we might as well get this some positive recognition.

    ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peWtFXLHPho&feature=plcp It is recorded in HD so you can switch to that when it starts.

    Here is my first try at posting a youtube video. If I can figure out how to embed it, I will.
    This is Middle St. Vrain on November 23, 2012. Iw was too icy for us to finish. Joey and I had a great time though and plan to do this trail again, next time connecting to Coney Flats too. Tons of side-by-sides and ATVs too.

    Nice, I ran that last weekend, turned around right before the first ice hole, just after the log/ice waterfall. I was rollin solo and didn't want to risk getting stuck. I also ran bounce school and T-33A up past the set of big ledges, and turned around before the shakane (sp?) that had ice in it and again didn't want to risk getting stuck.

    Nice. Laugh at the chubby guy slipping on the ice. We didn't catch any of your feet-out on your ass episodes, unfortunately. ;) I think laura was the only one who didn't go down.

    Mmm hmmm. It will happen again and I will be there with a camera next time.

    Anyway, Wuzzy (Mike), Nick's friend Jeff, and I did Kelley flats today. He truck did awesome and I got the itch to wheel taken care of so I can focus on sliders and tires now. It was totally clear, no snow or ice, but it is closing December 1st, so if any of you as planning on doing it, now is the time!

    Will post some pics and video of the trail probably tomorrow.

    Nick- tell Jeff sorry he ended up having to wait so long for us, I felt bad. His rig is just too sick, he was waiting for our asses all day.

Much more but i will keep it simple.
    The crossing at msv got hard. The lower ones weren't thick enough to hold any of the rigs 2 weeks ago. The lake at the top was about that frozen I got 10feet out and fell through. The trail was kinda slick in spots from people spinning but nothin like it looked for you guys. I will have to post pics from it when I'm on a computer
