Waiparous/Ghost Saturday Jan 20

Great day. A LOT of slickeriness out there, but better than being at home.

Thanks for leading, Rob!

Cabin Creek is one of my favs.... nothing crazy, just a great little trail.

That was my first time taking that route in (141), normally we went in from Margaret Lake (140). and I would have to say that 141 in is a much better trail!

A Great day for sure.

Matt and Trevor I put together all the clips for your runs up that icy cutline.  For Matt's if you look close the second time you can see your passenger tire is off the ground when you hit that mound of dirt.

Trevors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBeeAQbu33A (should be ready by 5pm? it's uploading)

Dave yours was pretty boring sorry... I have the video but it's just you driving up the hill

Nicely done!
Wishing my new dashcam hadn’t packed it in arriving in Cochrane that morning.  :(
At least I have a new one now for next time! 8)
