    Hairy is a good descriptor. I was pretty shaky when I stopped after going under the boulder tunnel, thankfully that was the worst of it. Met a guy on a KTM 450 coming up right after the bad bit and he seemed a bit surprised to see me...

    Did you make it through the muddy ruts upright? This is the kind of surface I tend to avoid at all costs, it scares me as hell.

    I dabbed but made it, one bike made it without even stopping, one needed a push.. We were committed to making it since it was the closest way to civilization, turning back would have been a long detour..

    When I went through there, I totally missed this camping spot. Which bums me out because the view looks great every time I see pics of it.

    When I hit the water the front instantly sank up to the hub.

    Luckily i had a winch with me and hooked to the tree stump behind me. I still had to dig out the wheels and drag the backend around by hand enough to line up with the cable pull angle to keep it from dragging the bike over.

    Hard work but cheaper and easier than hiking to find a cell signal and paying for a tow.

    Boy Scout merit badge achieved. :deal

    Lesson: the firm bottom of the last creek has NOTHING to do with the next one!

    I've been lazy this year about lugging around the weight of my winch...but I think I will strap the darn thing back on for next weekend, just from looking at a picture of that bog!
