    I had fought like hell trying to make it up a pretty gnarly rocky section about 40 yards long prior to this shot. It was really rocky, from softball-basketball sized rocks, and a creek running right down the middle. It took a solid hour for me to make it to the top, only to drop my wet boot on the slick rock and just SLIDE! Haha it was fun, but I couldn't stop and felt so helpless. My good buddy Myk did the only honorable thing and snapped a shot of my despair. He snapped many more of the carnage prior, but I'll save that!

    Big Jim had decided that running the Hydro lines at Calabogie wasn't so much fun this particular day, so he took an 'easier' route'

    While on the hydro line, Jim's son in law Cameron is pursuing a different line... shortly before he went horizontal :D

    It's an old go kart track!
    It may look sketchy, but it's been paved with the local granite and the traction is awesome!
    I've done track days at bigger race tracks with newer pavement and they are very slippery compared to this one.

    Why is it that hills never look as steep and gnarly in pictures as they really are?

    You won;t believe it but the only damage to the bike was a broken rad shroud , the bike never hit the ground and the wife never hit the tree, she came slow enough through the stone wall that when she was re directed to the tree the impact was minimal and she came to rest on the tree, but it makes for a good pic though .

    Wow, that photo is simply beautiful.





    On a lighter note, I just wanted to include this one for my sheer stupidity
