We work opposite shifts and opposite days to make it so noone raises our child but us. So trying to make time to get away is pretty tough. I'm thinking i can probably swing next saturday or sunday if I really try. Calamity via the slide might be fun...Gonna start working on it

Aaron... you are a young lion! Congratulations and keep having fun! And, take a minute to look up the word "wunderkind" in the dictionary... you'll probably find your picture in there.

And, when you are an old lion, you too can grumble about why everyone else doesn't do it your way...

I'm surprised anyone can run this trail. In some stretches you couldn't even see where your feet would be landing and much of the trail is wrought with rocks, roots, and mud holes. I'd want to wear a helmet, goggles, elbow and knee pads at the least. Maybe even a pair of hockey gloves to help break all the tumbles I'd expect to take. Aaron--I'd be interested to know if you fell a lot and whether you attempted to run the whole trail or only those sections where the trail looked safe to do so.

I hear you. It was hard enough to hike the trail up and down that ridge in the Blue Mt Lake WF due to the terrain and obscured trail from overgrowth. Granted it was only about a 3-mile section. I cannot remember any other sections (of significant length) that would have been so terrible that someone with significant trail running experience could not handle.
