    .... There's no way Tyson would take a 600 lb Tenere (successfully) where he's taken his XC.... although he might try! :D

    I hadn't heard Thane's 690 was totaled. I knew he was having issues wih it.

    Great video!
    After your trip last year 2up I was in awe as I have been since starting to see your pics and videos for the past few years.

    I hiked to Boulder City about 15 years ago with my daughter and wife on a whim, you know a bicycle water bottle and camera and lets go. I remember the start, the scree field climb and a big ditch just before the meadow. We only went to the first remains of the city. The best part was making it back to the car. :lol3

    Daxm, good on you for attempting it!

    I am so jealous! Thank you for making my defeat look not as bad as it was. :-)

    If you can imagine it that scree slope you did the next morning is where my Jeep ran out of gas all those years ago.

    You are such a great rider. I hope to be able to keep up with you the next time we go out.

    I see why it's called Boulder Basin. :lol3 The boulder to dirt ratio is a little high in favor of the boulders. Looks like a nice place to camp.

    Jason,

    Looks like fun. :evil

    I was able to watch about half the video before I became frustrated with my IE10. For some reason, it keeps crashing while watching videos. I love the unwanted upgrade that was pushed on me.

    You 500 is looking good. What rack is that?

    well, that settles it... I'm not going in there with anything bigger than my Tw 200... at least I can LIFT that over the boulders! :rofl

    Great video... looks like Boulder City is worth the effort if you can get there...:clap
