I think it was more foolishness than bravado, as I was by myself. Probably not the best trail to be on alone. It was a real pain in the ass getting out of there. The guy on the trials bike came part way up to see if I needed help... of course after I had already dug out and rolled part way back. Still, it was nice having the helping hand. He said that a lot of the trails that used to go through are now blocked off or boobie trapped by the wind mill companies!!! I will go very slowly on next weekends scouting.
