I have lived in wy for almost a year now and havent seen one damn sheep... and after the women I have seen I sure as hell hope I can find one soon. My friends even gave me some velcro gloves when I left UT but they have been sitting on the dash collecting dust... need to go ride in Montana to get lucky I think..

There were once two cowboys, one from Utah and the other from Wyoming, riding the range when suddenly they came upon a poor sheep with its head stuck in a fence.

Well, the temptation was too much for the Wyoming cowboy and he quickly leapt from his horse and had his way with the sheep.

Upon completing his dirty deed, he stepped back and asked his buddy from Utah if he wanted some.

"You bet!" was his enthusiastic reply and he jumped down from his horse and stuck his head through the fence.

Sounds like a guilty lie to me.

Yeah, the funny thing about WY is there really isn't that many sheep. I highly recommend the antelope though and since there are more antelope than people then it follows that there are far more antelope than available women under 200lbs in WY.

Once you go antelope you never go baaahhhck.

Ok, seriously though. I have no idea what parts of Wyoming you guys have seen. Driving in Wyoming and not seeing a sheep is like visiting Utah and not seeing 1 mini-van with the stick figure family sticker on the window.

backcountry first aide

So, I'm actually relatively new to serious back-country riding, but I have done a bit of mountaineering and back-country skiing and plenty of other sports in the back-country.
In these other sports like back-country skiing I've learned how to make a sled to carry your buddy out and the like. So, using gear at hand to find a solution.

Are there any gear-at-hand kind of solutions for when your riding buddy get's messed up in the back-country and his bike has to be left behind?

A couple of things that come to my mind are the following: (using parts from buddie's bike)
-use one or more tubes (partially inflated) from the tires to help create a stabalization mechanism, possibly a cast or something similar
-use some of the various tubing off of your buddies bike to make a tracheotome
-use the seat and some rope to create a neck/back brace

So, key problem with my ideas so far. No, easy way to haul out the messed up riding buddy. I guess two people would have to crash then I could build a rickshaw and make brshooter pull it.

Hey they have to eat too. Invite them in, serve it up and
pour a couple beers maybe some coffee. They will skip all
the boring stuff and get right to the Word of Wisdom lesson.

I've never had to actually do this. You could remove the kickstarter, assuming you're riding with Harcus, and beat them with it until the job is finished.
