Great pics! Now we can see some of the area. Looks like not a lot of shade,
at least on the higher elevations, so we should keep that in mind for hot

Please note that most of us are Windows users. We can’t open files compressed
with Stuffit (that I know of), and Windows gets real confused trying to open
files that don’t have extensions on their names, such as “trail 1.jpg”. JPEG is
the best way to save photos.

Sounds tempting! After climbing 1800’ on Mr. Toads, at high altitude, I think
2000 is manageable too. Those of us that can’t ride all of it can walk. What’s
the altitude range up there?

That sounds great. Quite a playground you will have!

I think you are right. Also if the conventions are back to back I think it will
be too much and too many people will choose one or the other. Non-conflicting
dates should work much better (except maybe for people driving to Toronto from
west of you?).

There would seem to be no choice. I guess then we should shoot for the last
possible weekend before Labor Day, or around there. Hot is nothing new for MUni
Weekends of course.

I wonder if 2002 would be a better year. How far are you from the Seattle area?
I wonder if MUni Weekend could attract an international crowd? Or would it be
too much for us Americans (NUC, UNICON, MUni Weekend)? Probably. People would
need a break.
2002 will already be a big uni year in the Northwest. I don’t know that doing
MUni Weekend up there then will be overkill. But I also don’t want to suggest
waiting until 2003. What do others think?
I would love to go back to Santa Cruz if the guys out there are willing. I could
also handle more of the registration for them if they want. Also there are
trails around Sacramento (or possibly the Bay area) that are good, or just
worthy of riding again.
