Sorry for the late post. I had fallen off of the internet for a few months. Life sucks sometimes.
Well, I went and I guess the best adjective I could use would be Wet.
Two days of thunderstorms do not make for good trailriding.
On the bright side, It cleared up Sunday, just in time to drive home.
Personally, I found the organizer to be lacking in any useful info for newbies to the event. He tended to describe things by saying "those of you who have attended before knowwhat I mean / am talking about / where its at" There were a few things to cater to the noobs like an information session on trail in the area (did not include minor details like <i>directions to the trailhead</i> in many cases) as well as guided group rides (Ick, I like to ride alone alot.)
Honestly, I found the staff at Blue Mountain Sports to be far more helpful. They were able to direct me to several beautiful trails within riding distance from downtown JT. In return, I spent a crapload of money there
Overall, I had fun, got wet, and rode a bunch. It was a long drive for me (560+mi) so I'm not sure I'll go back.
