Trail RECON Day – Race of TWO Cities!

Trail recon for the 100/200 Mile “Race of Two Cities” was a smashing success! We knocked off half the race route and the “trail” looks pretty good!

In fact, it’s going to be even better in winter when we have loads of snow and frozen creeks and rivers.   The sleds may run into a bit of overflow here, but they won’t run into soft, mossy, squishy ground and a running creek like today.  Thusly getting stuck. Really stuck:

Oops! Stuck in a creek!
