    A bit in the air, yes. You couldn't smell anything tho. Amazing how far things travel in the wind.

    75 miles of adventure last weekend and only had to cut 3 trees. 2 trail side carb issues which led to fuel consumption issues. 1 introduction of a rock to my ribs with about 10 more miles to the truck. 2 miles of only one of us is gonna gonna make it to the truck on fuel and the other one of us is gonna sit around and hope the adrenaline doesn’t wear off and wait impatiently for these ibuprofens to kick in.

    My friend is back on the bike 10 weeks after breaking several ribs, puncturing a lung, and more in a moto crash. It was really sweet to get him to the top of the ridge and then show him Rock Island Lake before the High Country gets shut down by snow next month. We carefully rode some difficult trails without incident. A successful day on the bike like this can help lift the spirits of one who has suffered serious injury and spent extended time in hospital reevaluating life. The wooded pyramidal peak to the right of my friend is 4300’ high, and features the hardest climb in the area. The view from the top is territorial: 100 miles in all directions. He has a new goal in mind now. All in good time.

    7 weeks, nice. I remembered your multi-week van/enduro trip last year to Idaho. (Where I am from).

    How much of your shop do you drag along in the van? And how often is bike recovery and getting parts on the road an issue?

    30 + years of riding turkey runs and enduros in New England, but I never made it to the Ammo.
    Berkshire BBB is this Sunday. My old club.
    I trail bossed that one a couple times. Be sure not to miss it.

    lol I have no or little clutch control. I have put auto clutches in most of my bikes. I definitely send it on accident when both throttle and clutch slipping are involved. Double log crossings and chunky hill climbs have sent the bike without me unintentionally.

    I did ride a 300 with Reklus in it and I think I want one.

    I think the rekluse hurts novice riders. Went with a guy that had one and i think he really had trouble knowing which gear it was in and what the throttle was going to do.

    Also i couldnt stand not being able to tell if it was in gear or not while unloading. Drove me nuts.

    Any links to a flyer or something. Ive done the quarry run and the hammer run a million times each and have raced most of the netra and ecea enduros and harescrambles. But, Ive never done the BBB and happen to be free on Sunday.

    BBB is always "fun" when it's rained all week. @Rusty Rocket 's old crew are sadists. It's a great ride.

    I was going to ride the hare scramble up in Fairbanks, but I couldn’t justify 6 hours driving for 3 hours riding. Had to settle for the local goods. No loading ramp. Leave from home. Then overnight the weather turned to winter. Grey, snowy, cold and windy. If that was the last session, I can be happy.
    Peace
