    Default Puritan Creek Water Levels

    Anyone been out to ride the Puritan Creek trail lately? How are the stream/river water levels out there. Was planning a weekend trip up there in two weeks...thanks

    Last weekend I was up at Pinochle. Fairly close. Caribou Creek was crossable, there wasnt much water on the trails, and there was some huge mounts of ice too.

    I went into Boudler Creek this weekend, it was a piece of cake. The mud hole just before Boudler isnt too bad, I motored right through it.

    plan on camping out there...heading back to the old trapper cabin. Are vehicles usually safe in the parking lot/pulloff?

    Default Vehicles...

    If you drove a Chevy I would worry, but I doubt too many vandals would be interested in your big ol Ford.

    Arrow Acrtic Trails

    Jason, there's a group of people from the Arctic Trails group headed out there this weekend. They'll be looking for fossils and I hear there's some fishing out that way too.

    The Club ride isn't an overniter (at least not on purpose). Jason, if you see a group of 6-10 machines sing out! I am riding a dark green 700 Prairie with a gas can on front and a camo soft bag on back.

    There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.

    Mike - considering a Prairie...how do you like yours?

    Default Liking the Prairie

    Picked it up May of 05 when the Rancher's smoking looked to take to long to fix when there was riding to be done. I was perfectly satisfied with the Rancher but gained an appreciation for the 700's greater power. I typically ride standing up so I'm not into the "smooth" IRS vs. the SRA's "hard ride" debate.
    I've got 900 miles on it now and haven't had a problem. Do I need 700 cc's? Nope, think a 450-500 class machine will pretty much do it all. And get better mileage.
    Do I like it - Yup! The Honda is still sitting in the garage, not fixed.

    Default Fun vs thrilling

    Rancher = fun trails
    Prairie = thrilling trails
    Yeah, I'm planning on getting it running again this summer. Of course,being a Honda, the brakes have rusted up on it after sitting - more work! :-)
