    The photo shown none of the pitch nore the break-over angle that grounded the Tacoma. All he needed to do was “send it” :lol3

    He could be like me, thinking about the spot that defeated him and how he’s gonna fix that because he wants to know :-) A motivational retreat.

    As we all know photos never do this stuff justice. But, talking to Josh I understand that these tank traps can be Uber deep. We caught it at a really good time.

    Looks like a great time I followed my wife around farmers markets and did hike up to alarka falls in big Laurel so not nearly as manly.

    Going to put some miles on the bike Monday through Friday and will post some pics.

    Was great to meet you guys! I had a blast and hope we can do it again soon. This was my first time on Hurricane, but I already know it will always be a favorite.

    Ok, juuuuust in case anyone is wondering how we got everyone in the pic, here's a tip for you. :)

    Set the phone to camera mode, then set the timer for as long as you can (10 sec is usually enough). Set the phone so that you can see the pic you want and get everyone except one guy in position. Then hit the shutter button and run. Works very well for this kinda ride shot.

    Lots of drama if the phone is low to the ground and the people are close, too.
