Great Job on the report PDX A! I really enjoyed your sense of humor and photos.
It was fun to read a report from the perspective of a new rider.
I have to say, I feel a little guilty after reading about your single track fiasco.
That morning you approached me and asked what our little group was doing, and I told you we were looking for tight fast two track. I think your response was something like "what's two track?"
I should've pointed you in the direction of Byways, he's the one who led the ride to Yellowstone on the old railroad grade. Instead, I think I just said, "You don't want to be with us." Sometimes I can be a real dick. Sorry.
I'll bet looking back though, you are probably happy about being on that single track ride. You got to peek behind the curtain a little and see what's possible to ride, and aspire towards.
