Looks great! Speedy and I were thinking of doing that run next year on the quads, would it be too tough for them? Big rock ledges? That's about the only thing that stops us!

Maybe try to make it a FIBC event like it was originally planned for July this year. Would like to see it happen next year, maybe later July/early August.

It all depends on the weather !


After a week of dry weather im sure youd be able to go through it without much trouble ---But startin already it can be snowin up there by now -and if its rained a lot ----good luck !


Also --Falcon Hill can be a challenge for an open diff truck ---Loose -fairly steep --long with a turn in it -and tuffest spot the rocks near the top ! So dont go without a winch along in the group !

Thats for sure !


Its winter up at those elevations already ! --Lots of warm clothes etc ! ---Wouldnt hurt to have some chain sets along just in case of a big dump of snow as well !
