    It's complicated. Requires the right balance of force and peace. Managing bitterness and pleasure. I know it will be difficult, but I am taking on the challenge.

    Me and my crew made it home safe today. Everyone had a wonderful time. I had three first timers with me, and I hope they’ll become regulars in the future.

    We rode four of the gaps (VT 17 is the best) and Smuggler’s Notch on Friday, then did the Kanc, and Hurricane Mountain Road among others on Saturday. VT 12 and VT 14 do not suck, just endless transitions with little traffic. I’ll try to get some pictures from our official photographer, I didn’t take a single one.

    We camped with Scott, Paul and their crew, good times.

    I was so busy riding and BSing with so many people, that I feel like I didn’t get to spend a lot of quality time at the fire. The weekend was a blur, but a fun and fulfilling blur. Thanks to all the attendees who make it special.

    Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Sixwatt, and everyone else who helped make the rally a reality. I tip my helmet to you all.

    Clark, you are the man. Ten years of fun and the best location you could get for this type of event. Thanks so much for putting the rally above your own personal riding plans. It was great talking to you at the shack on Saturday evening, those are special times. Much respect and many thanks.

    Great to meet Jim, Jamie, Gary and you. I hope we didn't deter you with our shenanigans Friday night.

    Thank you Clark, Jaime, and Mary - a good time as always.

    Thanks to everyone who made this weekend possible. It's a truly unique event where mingling is encouraged. I don't know of any other events where there's a central fire like this and everyone gathers to meet and catch up.

    Here's a few of the better pictures I took during the event.

    I logged about 350 miles on this little bike for the weekend. The rear tube finally gave up on me about 15 miles shourt of Silver Lake. A special thanks to Skippy and Vitaly for getting me the rest of the way back.

    Was good to catch up with Tumu and meet a bunch of new people. We did some dirt riding with Tumu on Saturday and the northern loop on Sunday. Truly spectacular views with lots of ripping up hills and some terrifying water bar jumps!

    This clip is from Saturday

    Had a blast as usual. The two day hangover is halfway past now and my gear is scattered across the garage for sorting later. Thanks to skippy and Dan, etc. for helping me get back up after eating it on that climb I had already done five times and Tumu for the spare handlebar to get me back up and running!

    See you next year and thanks to Clark and everyone who makes this thing happen.

    :lol3 Struth!!! I had a great time Thursday night and a rough time of it on Friday trying to ride and film. Videos by midweek. Got some great early Thursday evening drone footage and a little bit of trail riding drone footage, but them bastage was so fast through that gap in the trees, it's hard to see the bikes!

    Well a "Thank You" for the DR650 rescue in Waterbury on Saturday and hauling that pig back south on Sunday. All my crap is still in my truck so the Monday night purge should smell great after sitting in the sun all day at work. Big thumbs up to Clark for the bi 10th - awesome as always but that stretch to 3:15 am to finish that last cooler is still hurting. Strong work folks!

    3:15???? The sun ain't even tryin to shine yet. That's not a stretch, that's a miscalculation in the beer aisle.
