    We descended off the mtn through the woods on a really rocky, rooty and rutted 'road' that was also covered in leaves.....moving pics eluded me.

    But we survived and made it back to civilization before dark! :freaky

    My trip meter logged 87.3 miles on the return....for a total just shy of 150 big old wide grinin' ear to ear smiles! :D

    :wave Thanks....it's always good to have a partner out in the woods, although many times I don't. :shog


    Oh, I believe that there were more than 2 :augie

    Same here...Having a ride partner is not only safer but allows one to ride in such a manner that you just can't get that silly grin off your face and you have help when picking up your bike is needed.:D

    We had one of those epic days, good weather, good times, minmal issues.. Thanks :clap




    :evil you'll neven know how many drops...
