    Here she is, just the way she was as we loaded her into the truck. No pics at home, she is already tucked in for the winter.

    After all the snarking we did last weekend about the weather at SanYo, we decided to ride there today. Sunny skies, low to mid-40's temps, and........LOTS of snow left over from the storm that hit after we left on Sunday.

    A shot from my bike leaving the parking lot -

    That did not deter the hardcore ADV NMTA guys. Mainly 'cause we simply are not that smart. Case in point - Gordy riding over a solid ice patch, and lovin' every minute of it -

    [​IMG]

    Nice, you clown!!

    [​IMG]



    The snow was melted from the sandstone surfaces, but still clinging to the dirt. I took this shot to try to show the differences in the rock and the amount of snow in the background. Ansel Adams I'm not, but you get the idea.

    While doing our stupid stunts in one of the "pools", lunch on the hoof came by to check out the buffoonery -

    [​IMG]

    Mmmm, I'm thinking Black Angus for dinner tonight..... :D



    Anyhoo, down to serious buffoonery.

    And a ledge he did NOT want to do until he saw Gordy do it (well) -

    Gordy and Big Al Terrault discuss how well 'Boss did that ledge -

    An "art" shot of 'Boss holding pressure on a small obstacle -

    Get that stance back just a taste, and you will look just like Nathan!! :thumb

    Big Al Terrault brought out his new (to him) Sherco -

    [​IMG]

    And seemed to get used to it pretty quick. Never did get a good shot of Al in action today, so here's a goof shot of him and NMTB -

    [​IMG]



    Did have a non-ADV (:huh) interloper join us for the silliness today from Oregon -

    [​IMG]


    And he showed up in this total badass 4X4 diesel Ford camper van -
