I should have the Blue Pig back together for a Pre-Father's day run.  

It's getting too dang hot to camp so Hot Springs is probably out of my reach... but I'd be up for a day run somewhere.  

Here are my thoughts...

Who is in?

What's your preference for location?

Rush springs?

Cass/Byrd's?

Larry and I are planning a day run to SMORR on the 15th.  I need to meet with Brandon re: RTO and this is the best date.  We will plan to leave around 6:00am and should be back around 7:00pm at the latest.  I know this is a long day and a lot of driving, but it should be a great trip.

If my other plans fall thru, because of work, I'll be looking to get out that weekend. I havent been to Rush Springs and have heard good things.

Gonna run it by the spousal unit and see what she thinks. I'd like to back to Byrd's since I feel like it'll have harder trails. But I'm open to Rush as well depending on the group .

SMORR also has some paricularly challenging climbs.  The only bummer about SMORR is the longer drive to get there.  I'd be up for that too.  3 hour drive one way is doable but you gotta get out of town early and be prepared to drive home tired in the dark.

Sounds like there might be 3 groups gathering up that weekend. One group of Overlanders are headed to K-trail in OK. , and another to SMORR , and it sounds like we need a group to stay local and hit Cass, Rush or Buckhorn. I think the local group should try a night run !!! Just a thought !!

I would prefer to hit Cass or Rush for a true Day run. SMORR is further than I really wanna drive for a day run this time around.

Fair enough.  Do you have a preference?  There are some challenging things either place.  I actually know Rush Springs better than Byrds. I have most of the blue pig's kinks worked out.  I'm soooo ready to get it back ont he trail to test it out.

If you know Rush better, and can show me around a little bit and I can see some of the more challenging stuff.. Then I'm good with Rush. Will save Byrd's for another time then

The nice thing about Rush... every hard jaunt has an easier way around and you can always meet up at the playground at specified times (lunch, 2PM snack, 4PM recovery, etc.).  Let's do it.
