    Loving your post and photos Joe, was that a photo of Potash road in Moab, if it was I've done some climbing there, had a great time there. Would love to do some riding around there.

    Next time I'm at the office I'm gonna stand in the middle of the cubicle farm and yell "WOOOOOOOOOOO! you F'n assholes!" and when all the prairie dogs pop up just look 'em in the eye with a wild Jack Nicholson grin and ask "Who wants to skip work and go riding?"

    Well I don’t work any more or I’d join you.
    :clap
    I think you should coordinate this so can happen in a thousand offices simultaneously.
    Start a movement man. :ricky

    A friend of mine used to call in well. He told them he was feeling great so why wreck it at the office? He was going riding.

    Taking pictures of these old drill rigs is becoming a thing for me. I know where there are two others that I’ve come across during my rides. The water supply to this trough very well may have been the last hole this one drilled.

    I have some pictures of sitting friends in that old drill rig. There is some petrified wood out in that area also cool to see. Like your report. Was just in the area riding a few weeks ago, last cool weekend there.

    This will, no doubt, change if we meet in person. :D

    Yup, you've climbed there. Bunch of fun little pitches.

    Exactly the attitude needed for keeping sane.

    Cool. Yup, chunks of petrified wood scattered about. Good on you!

    Hahahaha! Yup. If we happen to cross paths, I'm happy to point you in a cool direction though.

    So a few weeks back I got my first taste of riding UT out of St. George, what an awesome place, as expected hot as hell and so different than east coast riding and gives me a whole new appreciation of what it takes to do week+ rides like JM did in this thread. I wasn’t as minimalism as Joe (I brought under wear!) but given I have no experience riding for days at a time in this remote landscape I packed a bit more stuff to be prepared. Can’t wait to get back hopefully this fall or maybe Xmas.


    PS- I looked for hidden stashes of the adjusta-thing-a-ma-bob but found none, was like looking for the Forest Fenn treasure :lol3

    Glad the scorpions didn’t eat you Erik! Let’s push the temperature boundaries again this fall.

    Joe, still working on the perfect rice recipe for the A-fork. Close, not ready to give up the secrets yet. It takes a good eye to spear those little f’ers...

    Nice work man!! You don't look too overloaded. Wow, yeah, a little warm around St George right now. I'm a few weeks away from getting into the desert but your photos really make me look forward to it!

    Gonna try the next phase of forked peaches this weekend. Already soaking; they'll either be great or go up in flames like a marshmallow.

    The leftover juice should be acceptable also...
