Rio, Three Palms, or SHNF this weekend

I have a 3 day weekend. Looking to get the KX smoker out for once. Got it completely rebuilt engine and all and haven't used it since. Also just bled the brakes, new throttle and clutch cables, new clutch lever, so yeah I'm ready to rip. Anyone else interested just post up here or PM me. I've never been to three palms or SHNF but if anyone with experience wants to get out there I'm always up for a new challenge.

Sterling ranch looks pretty fun and I've never been so far that's my #1 choice. Unless anyone posts up to go to rio or three palms I'm gonna go to sterling

I'm going to sterling ranch, already called the owner said they'll be open all day and the trails are in good shape. Not too hard and packed not too dusty. Come on I know y'all wanna get dirty on a Saturday!

What a blast. I went alone but when I got there I met a group of guys who have rode that park 6 or 7 times so I tagged along with them. There was a KTM 300 2 stroke, 250 4 stroke, a ttr125, and a 500 exc. Then they also brought a Beta trials bike. All throughout the day these gentlemen were so polite and helpful, reminds me why I ride, bc of the FAMILY! Never met any of these guys and they're foreign but not two seconds after seeing each other were we shaking hands and talking shop. Just awesome

Unfortunately I was cut short. I'm having spark/carb issues I think. But it was good because I was cramping so badly my hands locked up closed. So I needed to stop anyways.

Thanks Alex, Adrian, Yurig, and Enzo for all your help and courtesy, you guys are awesome if you ever read this.
