    The water level at the res was as low as I think I’ve ever seen it. At its highest water level, only the tip of that little peak is sticking out. Our camp from the previous night is well underwater at that point.

    Another gorgeous day was in store although once again we were looking at temps pushing 90. You gotta consider this when planning your route. We backtracked up the graded road to start the day.

    We crested the pass and the haze gave the desert landscape a unique feel. Desolate. Out there. Perfect.

    We traversed down the old mining dugway which the county keeps maintained now. Nice way to start the day.

    Hotstuff and I wanted to wander around the desert a bit. We didn’t bring shoes along just to sit around camp, I can assure you of that. There was a slot canyon nearby that I had hiked in during the mid 90s and I thought she’d like it. We took a couple of hours to explore it.

    You can’t screw around in these canyons if there is any sort of rain possible. Picture this canyon with a torrent of water flushing through with enough force to bring this tree down and jam it in the rocks. A few times a year on average, a number of people get caught in these slots and get flushed to their death. Frightening.

    The shady canyon was just the ticket for a quick morning walk. Temperatures were quite pleasant down in there.

    Approaching mid day, the sun was high in the sky and shade was becoming more sparse. Time to move. We hopped on the bikes and enjoyed the wind rushing past us.

    How far would that tree have to travel to land in the canyon? I don't see anything that size in any of your pics!

    Good question. Looks like a Cottonwood to me. These grow along these canyons/washes. I'm guessing it was a dead one that one of the flash floods got a hold of. Still could have come from miles upstream.

    Yeah, she keeps me in shape. That said, she's not afraid of polishing off a little more wine or gin than is needed now and again.

    I need to thank you a-holes for all the inspiration you've given me. I built a new prototype today. The Adjustafork 8.0 Libtard Forest Rake. I think it's going to be a good seller with the California and Oregon tree huggers.

    You might be able to hunt and cook with that thing, possibly defend oneself too.

    Yes. Yes there is. It's a damn good look, especially bent over the bike seat. The gf was going to end up in the same 2 piece bikini after riding today until she fell and separated her shoulder.

    Damn man, what a killer place to awaken; even if you had to endure doing so without the croffee. Taking your time to enjoy the morning in such a place is the perfect type of reset.

    Great update @Joe Motocross, still have a page to catch up on and look forward to doing so. And @staticPort...bahahahaha...repurposed forest rake just about had me spew coffee. Well done.

    Holy f*cking hell that's one of the funniest g*ddamn things I've come across on here @Joe Motocross :lol2 :lol2 :lol2 :lol2 :lol2 :lol2. I will definitely order one of those; planning to order a couple more adjusta-forks for buddies as they were a huge hit during a recent outing to China Hat, so just let me know.

    I'm going to be laughing about that all damn day, glad the short side conversation from a couple pages ago caused the creative spirit to drive the creation of Libtard Forest Rake...I'll use it with pride...LOL.

    Really enjoying this thread!

    (Is it too early to put in for 10 LFR's?)

    We have a forest in town, and the City might be able to use these...

    There needs to be a collapsable, 6' spear shaft option. Of course, in the spirit of ADV-F, the shaft would also serve as a lever to move trees from the trail, a fishing pole to drag big catfish from the reservoir, a snake removal tool...the possibilities are endless.

    You guys are missing the point (Points?) here; the new eight-tined Forest Rake will allow libtards to spend a few hours preventing forest fires every riding day as atonement for the sin of burning fossil fuel in pursuit of Roost Nirvana. At the close of such a well spent day they will have earned a succulent, fire-roasted repast courtesy of their magnificent multi-function Adjustaforks. At long last balance can be restored to the biosphere.
