2011 Archive: Stuff Found On Trail

In an ongoing attempt to catch up on the blog posts... how about a little ACTION from the end of August.

Ed and I were blessed with a very sweet visitor for a handful of uber-lucky days... This special visitor is particularly (and easily) charmed by: Stuff Found On Trail.

And by Stuff Found On Trail, I mean alllll sorts of things.

One good moment:


mmmm!!!!!! anyone dare to guess who this might be?

Yup. None other than Mr. Morris.

I think he actually might have been quite proud for NOT eating any of them. Instead, we made a nice little Skittles Sculpture, and carried on our happy Enduro-Tech way. (Enduro-Tech = 6+ hours of mileage + technically-focused-intentions. Ride it. Session it. Clean it.)

Scott and I spent this particular day finding every possible rock, log, SWITCH (and any other possible landscape-event) to RIDE, finnessseeee and skillKill.

From the Skittles point, he continued to entertain my no-dab, no-bounce game on My Mountain. There are FunRules that are directly tied to SkillRules, which are directly tied to CRACK!!!!! You know that, right?!

That is to say: the man is smoooovvveeeeeee as buttah. And he cleans lines on the first try that locals won't bother trying. My kinda tech friend!

There's nothing like moving from the Bergen Tech Fest straight over to A3s for a little MORE.

Nice work aligning THAT.... Funny thing: it's NEVER taken me that many tries to clean this one ;) WTF?!

Sighhhh... you kinda kill me, Scott... Mr. Smoove.

And. That was day 1. The other days all deserve their own posts ;)

That'll be enough tech for those of you (me) jonsin' for some real all day tech sessions.

Thanks for the Enduro-Tech Re-Stoke, SCOTTY!!!!!



2011 archive: Hunter Fryingpan WanderLust!

blogger hiatus. ;) DOH!

jeny has been deep in OCD-Work-Land. i don't like it when she's too much there.... and not so much in Big Happy Mtb Play Land ;( and thus, tails of mtbblissness have been sparse for a while. tails of light and rock have been on hold for the time being... i will share the 2011 mtblovestories in a short while.

i do, however, have about 6 months of pictures and adventures to catch up on here in blogger land -- if anyone is still out there looking in. (hello?hello?)

i thought i'd dig up an adventure from August. a little something i meant to share with you all, and simply haven't gotten around to it yet. we had an especially charmed spring, summer and fall with our camping trips last year. this trip, however, was one of the biggest and most rewarding of our adventures. we spent 4 days and 3 nights in the hunter-fryingpan wilderness, linking up a rather large set of trails, basins, peaks and ridgelines. i think i found a few of my new absolute favorite places to just BE on this trip. it was very special.

so, without further delay:

no real trails to/into this basin. one of my faves;)

more soon! thanks for peeking back into this quiet little world!
