    Another great Cromag. Where else can you find so many awesome people to hang with, enjoy superb riding and view some of the most beautiful countryside in the country. Major Kudos to Clark for all the hard work and making a ton of people happy. So heres a few pics from my weekend.
    I didnt get any pictures of the Thursday ride with VTphoneman, Sir Waffles, and Flei in the on and off rain. Considering the conditions it was great. Sometimes its the great company that makes the day. Thanks Guys!

    Friday we did a run up to Radar Rd with ADKbeemer, KenG, VTphoneman and Frank. It turned out to be one of the best rides ever for me. This crew is the BOMB!


    Heres Frank back on 2 wheels after 30 years with street tires at his first Cromag. He handled the worst terrain with ease. Rookie of the year award stuff.

    Heading up to the radar. Kind of post apocalyptic with the abandoned buildings at the bottom.

    I can't figure out why I had this song in my head the whole ride home while thinking of Casey.

    In spite of stiff competition from other events I decided I really had to get back to Cromag this year. More than glad I did. I dragged along a couple of buddies that don't like to get dirty, we brought bazookas to the knife fight.

    Went out for a short road ride on Sat. Ended up in Enosburg Falls to buy some cheese directly from a farm. Really cool place we just about cleaned their samples before deciding to buy a bunch and move on.
    No goats were harmed, at least not that I caught on camera.

    Keeping with the barnyard theme stopped for lunch in Waterbury

    [​IMG]

    And of course had to stop in Stowe for some of VT's greatest food product, full meal in a can.

    Great to catch up with old friends and make a few new ones.
    BBQer wife wants to know what the sticker is, I told her if you have to ask....

    Oh yeah, :clap Thanks Clark :clap

    Go to the far side of the big tower (farthest from the way you came in) and there is a hole cut in some of the rebar blocking a door. Go through that little 3' x 3' hole and then find the stairs. Climb the stairs until you are on the top floor, then find the staircase that has been detached from the roof level. Right next to it is a ladder. That'll take you to the "Viewing platform." There IS a greater chance of tetanus as you have to contort to get through that entry hole, but otherwise, it's really not all that sketchy. Not sure I would trust any of the wooden platform bits, but the main roof is still solid.

    Troy Lee Greg. Great riding with you this year. It all goes to fast. Thanks for the support you all showed Frank. That's the great spirit of ADV riding and Cromag . Clark it wouldn't be possible without you. All the best to you all till next year. Of course sooner if we plan that epic ride !!!!!
