    Thanks for posting, especially the vids, I got arm pump like another reader! I really liked the vids with NO music, listening to your revs and other stuff made it more real.

    Terry, I thought you used to bitch about Wallet trail and some of my stuff in PA. The guys back here don't know what rocks are! I've been to Gillett, Tip Top mine and actually from there on over to Boulder with Black Canyon as the starting point. I have no idea how I missed this stuff! My last day at B/C this year I ran up the Aqua Fria towards Cleator, turned south on Black Canyon trail and after maybe 8 or 10 miles it dead ended. My GPS was on the fritz that day so we tried to go east over the top and found nothing to go down. From the top we were looking slightly NE to the truck pull off on 17 south. We had to back track, hopped on Magie Mine and booked back. I will find this stuff next time!

    I think it would have been and interesting day if you did not notice it and broke it the rest of the way on the trail. Now is a good time to think about how you would have repaired it on the trail.
    You know, there is a simple solution to this problem,,,,, QUIT HITTING SHIT!

    As I was watching the video that is exactly what I was thinking, "Man, do my wrists hurt". And not for the usual reason they hurt when I am watching "videos". :evil

    Julio, I fully expected you to be on the ride with them. Isn't that why you moved out there?
