Hey, any of you perverts up for riding Saturday?

Ideally I'd be looking to do something starting in the morning, and within a couple hours of SLC that's nice scenic riding. I'm not a great dirt rider (although the bike is pretty much AWESOME) but can do most "normal" stuff without too much drama. Single track is fine, as long as we don't get too crazy - Just don't put me on a smooth fire road with little tiny ruts in it....... oh, or deep sand.

I can carry my bike on my car, or pull someone's trailer if we wanted to car pool and take a couple bikes to a trail head or whatever.

Tool loan?

Anyone have an electrical wire fishing thingy I could borrow for a couple weeks? I'm talking about the thing to help pull wires through conduit.

I've got one, I will dig it up. I think I have two, a big one, and one that's 25' long.
PM me.

If McCain and Sarah Palin were currently president, I'm sure that electrical workers would have trickled down and I'd not have to deal w/ such offensive menial labor as I am confronted with. While Ryman is as conservative as they come, I'm sure he might offer to kick the balls (mods: soccer balls) of any offender of hard working liberals before they get custom tours or said offenders might never see Death Star Canyon.

Sarah Palin 2012! I can see Russia from my front porch!

KMC1: Saturday probably won't work for me, unless you want to do an epic twistie slab tour that may or may not happen, but if so, all day, half the state. (my little bro ride a stupid Harley, rode sand dune last sat...).

LOL..... I don't know if the workers would have trickled down, but at least the U.S. would still have a line of credit good enough so you could borrow the money to hire some workers to come do the work for you like a good Republican would!

And I only know Ryman from reading on here, and even I know I don't want him anywhere near MY soccer balls! (Sorry Ryman, it was just too easy to pass it up! )

You know, if there aren't any takers for a trail ride on Saturday, I could actually get into a long road ride - I got out 2 weeks ago for a 700 mile weekend, and it was pretty terrific but felt a little too short..... sooooo......

As it stands right now I have all day Saturday into Sunday AM free. (Can't trail ride at night though - stock KTM glowplug..I mean headlight still on it)

Stress

The best way to relieve stress is to go for a ride in the sunshine. Since the weather is scheduled to degrade soon, I decided to make a run for it. The sun was out & soon I found some aspen...



I wandered around checking some trails & roads that I had not been on before. Soon I wound myself on a steady uphill climb on a gnarly trail...



Continuing to climb I found some of this. Hmmm...Winter is on it's way...



I finally ended up here. Where am I?...




Since the shadows were getting long I headed home for the day. But there were more sights to see so I returned the next day.

I checked out this trail but it looked pretty ugly being several miles of uphill rock garden so I bailed. I didn't want to work that hard today. Recognize it?



Finding another trail...



This trail was mo betta as it was in the sun & scenic...



Soon I ended up here. More mine tailings. Man, these people really worked their butts off diggin these holes...



Been here ?

Finally, I felt relaxed & headed home. Good therapy. I recommend to anyone!
