riding this summer...

Derek and I are going to be looking to go on some road trips this spring. One place that we are looking at is Vernal, Utah. (There was an article in one of the mountain biking porn mags last year if you want to check it out...) Would any one be interested? It would be some time between May 15-June 6. Let me know, email me...

Vernal is pretty much my back yard. Actually the East Wing of the Giant Playground of mine I like to call.....Utah. I am down like......ummm come up with something cool that rhymes.

I work a 4 day work week. So I'm good for a Thursday through Sunday timeframe. I'm going back to the east coast Memorial Day weekend through June 6th, so Anytime before that....(i.e.-the only weekend before memorial day that you mentioned in that timeframe).

Let me know what you're thinking. Camping? Other lodging?

That will work! We would look into a hotel, camping would be good, but it would have to be in a rented RV or something! Got spoiled at the 24 Hour in the Old Pueblo when it was cold, snowy, rainy and we had rented an RV from a friend.

As it gets a little closer we will know what Derek's work schedule is. Have you ever been in the Vernal area? Rode there? Depending on how long it takes us to drive there we should be able to do a Thursday-Sunday deal. It looks like we would have to drive thru SLC so if that is where you are at then we could pick you up if it is not waaayyyy out of the way!

I'm about 5 miles out of your way. I can rent an RV up at Hill AFB, I just don't have a vehicle to tow it, but if you guys want to do a hotel, I'm cool with that too.

I've never been out in Vernal, but I've read about it, and it sounds awesome. It's not too far either. About 3.5 hours from where I am at here.

Sweet, then let's make the plans! I think after talking to Derek that he would rather do the hotel thing if that is good with you.

Although we have a truck that can tow an RV. We would definitely be more then happy to pick you up and be your's and your bike's taxi!

Derek said that there were a good number of hotels in Vernal so we should be able to find something, hope that works for ya!
