    Default Purington/Boulder Creek Good Ride

    We went back to Purington Trail and rode back to Boulder Creek today. The trail was in relatively good shape, the mudholes were not too bad and we never had to use the winch. We usually get turned around at the mudholes just before Boulder creek but this time we made it through no problem and rode well back up the valley. Beautiful day for it, too.

    On a sour note, some jerk stole the cotter pin off our trailer's ramp today. We had a spare, so it wasn't a big deal, other than the fact that you ought to be able to leave your truck and trailer in the parking lot without someone stealing a necessary item. Had we not had a spare cotter, we'd have had to rig something up or throw the ramp in the bed of the truck. It kind of soured my mood a little.
    "If snowmachiners would adopt the habits of riding one at a time and not parking at the base of avalanche prone slopes, the number of fatalities would likely be whittled by at least a third, if not by half." ~ Jill Fredston, in the book Snowstruck, In The Grip Of Avalanches.

    Wow what is this place coming to? Respect others property, if it does not belong to you, leave it alone!!!

    Well other than that little episode, I'm glad you had a nice trip up there, thanks for the updates.
