Yup this is getting better and better!
Johns comment about REI taking it back was his subtle way of getting back at me for past and future "Boonie Bashin "
the funny thing about my chair fetish is that others often take my discarded selections and make them theirs....... but they are always one step behind..............
in the case of the ball crusher.....it seems Kevin carried it the whole way but seldom used it due to the major flaw it has.............ball crushing.
my next to last try was a two legged chair that Herc had on this trip and if I remember there were several dirt naps taken in .....or should i say, out of it
last years model was a kids chair with arms and back and drink holder that worked surprisingly well except for one small issue......... i am just a little.....ok alot too fat to fit comfortably.........Dan O used a similar model this year but it didnt have the arms or cup holder.
this year my choice was a two legged chair with 4 legs and it worked great and i was VERY happy and thought i had the PERFECT chair..............packs very small. light. and fairly stable. never bucked me out and didnt break.
I found dirt bike camping chair Nirvana ...............until the first night
and TT pulls out " this thing a friend gave me, I dont know if its any good or if I can figure out how to put it together".............
THE KERMIT chair is the real deal and worth every penny............i have chair envy the rest of the trip
you NEED a good chair to enjoy the camp fire and some spirits or herbs
You make some salient points, my friend.
And I really appreciate you including a picture of me at Night Four....when one of the guys helpfully manoeuvres a small boulder for me to sit on (while you kitties pull out your chairs and plant your cheeks comfortably [except for the triangular ball crusher] ). As my old-dirtbiker knees slowly hydraulic my butt on to the soft contours of the stone, I think I have found its sweet spot, only to find that my downward motion , being assisted by those nefarious gravitational laws, continue and I roll backwards onto the sand. :huh
I don't know if it was the fall that entertained you guys or my akido-like roll that I have perfected over years of crashing on the trails.
Whatever it was, I considered that it was UM#4....: give the old fat guy an asymetrical boulder for a chair and see how a foreigner might manage ...at least for diversional purposes so you wouldn't be the only "old fart" target.
I am off on the 690 to GPS some tracks....later....
THE KERMIT chair is the real deal and worth every penny............
That's a lot of pennys...:eek1
I agree. I also see they have custom embroidery...My chair is going to say "This chair is better than Bob's". I already checked, it fits.
Sorry that I missed this ride but I will be on the next great adventure, having ridden with four out of the group I feel for the candian. But you get points for great story telling.
I snapped a few pictures on my flight into Vegas from Pa. This is when my trip around the Grand Canyon started.:eek1:eek1....
We all cant get the same color......i have dibbs on the Burgundy Chair
see ya later ball crusher

No Neil, finally got a bike that can make the trip.
See you this weekend Bob, bringing bike and riding gear so maybe a trip to middlgate with you and Dan. Just a few bugs to work out of the bike.
we should think about an overnight to Austin june 2&3
I have been thinking we need to do something. Trying to get Baja Joe up this way, I will tell him too. Is Dave allowed?
Is this a Husaberg trip?

Wow....what an intro to the Grand Canyon...such a vast area with a huge variety of terrain surrounding and leading up to this magnificent tear in the Earth...
Not only the Grand Canyon, each day presented a selection of sandy washes, fast sweeping gravel roads, red clay-sand stuff that was fun to appreciate the traction....
Southern Utah and the Arizona strip are sure wonderful playgrounds .
Nice pict of herc on his face making silt angels. Now i want to see the video of the whole wreck. Ged thanks for all the writing about the trip. I had no idea you were so articulate, especially after hanging out with you for a week. I thought you were just your average kitty milkin Candian.Your doing an awsome job, thanks....
