I had a dream ...

For several years I have wanted to try a ride I'll call the "White Rim Sandwich with Kokopelli Bread".

This is a one day ride starting in Rabbit Valley and doing the Kokopelli Trail with no shortcuts to Moab then running the White Rim Trail and then back to Rabbit Valley on the Kokopelli all in one day's ride. If all goes well this should be about an 18 hour 450 mile ride. If all goes well, and it rarely does.

Three very good friends, the kind who help you hide the body, took some convincing to buy into this ride.

"that doesn't sound fun"

"why"

"is there something wrong with you"

were typical pre-ride comments. I just hope they still talk to me after this one.

Because after 17 hours, the side of the road was more comfortable than my bed at home.

Tha Rick in full snore.



More later, I'm going to bed....

Maybe they can post there exact time, size of team, photos and route of their ride. Then we can try to do it faster and make a race of it.

We can rename it the Koko-Rimjob Canonball Run?

Toddler didn't like tha stickers in tha sand, so he opted for a nap on tha "softest friggin rock there is". I think Xplor might have a pic of his nap time bed.

Great ride. Kinda reminded me of tha MOAR ride put on by hellsickle.

Looking forward to Toddler's RR. Innazone and Xplor should chime in with their accounts as well.


Some things I learned this ride: A big meal is not so good when going out for tha rest of tha ride, Fruits and simple foods are good energy, I can "hit tha wall" and push through it only 4 times before my brian turns to mush.

People look at me funny when I'm cramped out in front of tha City Market in Moab.

Toddler's dream was to drive out to Rabbit Valley friday eve, get up sorta early and start tha Koko, arrive around 12-1 for lunch in Moab, then hit tha White rim trail, have dinner in Moab, then hit tha Koko on tha way back to Rabbit valley.

A few thoughts went through our head on tha Koko:

We have to do Rose garden uphill, in tha dark, and tired after about 350 miles without any real breaks? There was a Jeep rally of some sort there, my estimate 30+ jeeps to go around.

I got directionally challenged for about 1 hour near Dewey bridge.

Tha white rim was prety uneventfull, but did have some mishaps of a chain guide malfunction, a yeti coming too close to heat exhaustion and heaving his tortilli lunch in his new helmet.

Toddler had equipment issues that needed to be sorted out.

And it was about 1 in tha morning, pretty tired and a LONG way from tha truck, so we took a nap on tha Rim trail exit near Potash.

More to come...






I wish I took some pic's.

That ride sounded insane before I realized that part....

It would be kinda cool to ride the WRT under a full moon though.
