    Goat Camp video

    In my convalescence this morning, I have put together clips from yesterday's Goat Camp ride. My sister (not a mtn biker) is always complaining "don't you ever go uphill?" about my videos, so this one has a significant amount of the UPHILL required to get to the Goat Camp descent. And yes the uphill is significant although with yesterday's cool weather and all my FOTP training it was a breeze!! I'll likely post a revised version once I gets clips of me from Epicrider's camera. Right now, my signature Orange moth in the video is only proof that I was there. BTW, my shoulder is turning nice shades of blue as the day wears on. The 2nd day after the crash is always worse that the first day so I'm not looking forward to work tomorrow.

    See revised video in post below....

    Nice Dirtbag, your a jackhammering MOFO. I see your keeping up with the Highline, Poi Boy just picked one up off of the classifieds.

    Nice work K, both behind the camara and rocking Spiral!!

    tiSS'er's living the Highline too. Props for his first successful jackhammerin'-ultra smooth too, straight down the gut.

    I had a first too yesterday-a no preview down the left entrance ('cousin of jaws of death') into the Spiral Staircase. All in all, a great day on Goat Camp.

    I'm sure Poi Boy is going to love, er, live the Highline. tiSS'er and I just put Avys on ours. So good it shouldn't even be legal.

    Nice tiSS'er, did I meet ya on bugs to millie during the last fling?
    What kind of Avys? a chubie or a woodie? that must've cost ya a pretty penny.
    JRA did the goat 2 WE's ago. I see they removed the rocks on the left at the bottm of the staircase, that was a easy way.

    Yep, I was on a green RFX.

    I have a DHS on my Highline. It is the only Avy that will fit a medium. dirtbag has a Woodie. The DHS and Woodie are identical with the exception of the remote resivoir. As dirtbag said, I just feel like i am cheating.

    Nice K, that little rock gap at the end with the last pointy rock is a leap of faith. So, I can see why a big wheel would work wonders there .

    Ah yes tiSSer I remember you now. HHMMMM someday I might play with one of those Avy's, but not right now $$$.

    Yeah, but worth their weight in gold. Once the speed picks up, it is just plain rediculous. Craig is a great guy, and he really knows his stuff. His setup for me was spot on, I am running his stock settings.

    Up Mr. Seekins moded my 5th element with their AVA advantage. When I put that on my Sinister it was like a new bike. Nice work.

    videos cause epics you know

    Nice compilation on the video DG. You guys are the bomb. FOTP will be easy peasy for you in a couple of... days. Shoulder pending.
    News from the high country; its fun riding on snow/ice on the shady sections of little elden. Otherwise its bone dry up here.
    Sedona; planning to ride there before t-day. Hopefully can drag out some friends on that one.
    Speaking of Sedona, I heard that there was a Search and Rescue of two mountain bikers on Damfino/hangover almost two weeks ago. Seems like a dude from Phoenix and his buddy from Philly were trying to find the trail, got lost, got benighted, called the SAR. They kept moving in the dark, only carrying a cell phone for light. SAR saw their light as they kept moving in the dark, looking for the trail. They were begging for water, but couldn't follow SAR directions, so the weaksauce that they were, had to wait for morning to be led out of the wilderness, so to speak. The trail was less than 50 yards away. Sounds like they were asshats towards SAR and the guy from Philly was overheard saying to his Phoenix "guide", "um like maybe we should listen to these guys." I'm almost certain that someone was reading the "hangover" thread and thought that it was no big deal.
    So now, will Goatcamp have an epic rescue in a week or so? I mean that all of us oldsters are slow and have no skills compared to the new school, right? SWEET!

    Updated video!

    Thanks to Epicrider for sharing his footage and stills from the ride.

    With regards to Chalkpaw's comment...
    DO NOT TRY ANY OF THE STUNTS YOU SEE ON THIS VIDEO. IT IS FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY.
    I'd hate to have SAR gather someone from Goat Camp. It'd be a long and painful rescue for all parites involved.

    Here's the new and improved video:

    Nice....

    bummer i had to work.i did the XC version today and ran into teps group from So Cal.
    looks like they got a late start but the weather was great even close to noon.they seemed to be ready to tackle to full meal deal! a hiker told them that another group was also out there ahead of them,i took the mesquite trail down from the top and missed passing them on the way down.that would be the most bike traffic i've heard of in one weekend out there.
    the place is gaining a little popularity lately.
    K,glad to hear that a little bruising is all that you ended up with.things can go badly rather quickly,you know this first hand.
    heal up,the FOTP will be here sooner than we think.

    Love it, thanks for putting it together! I love the "sounds of the trail" section at the end. I didn't realize dirtbag let out an "oh yeah!"

    Hey Trax,

    Have you rode up mesquite? I came down it the other day and it seemed like it would be easier than the normal way.

    yes sir,
    i've gone up that way on my singlespeed.it's an easier climb though it seems like a longer route.it's a steady climb without the up's and down's of the other option.
    would be interested to see which way's faster on the way up.the willow/ford side has steeper climbs but has some donwhills in between.mesquite is mostly up.

    That's a quality study break, that is. Doubly impressive to ride and get that much video. Everyone's chasing the orange bike now!

    My personal fav is the "shoulda trained harder to push my 35+ lb bike" part.

    Nice Vid Kathleen.

    I see a 6" Box in your future. It's ridiculous.

    Gotta get down for this ride.

    I was feeling pretty spry on Saturday for an old lady, at least until I thudded into the trail with a full body slam. This was a great group... the speedy guys weren't too speedy and no one was too slow. We had a well-paced climb and then fun do-overs and group support on the DH with plenty of time for video action. Truly a wonderful day on the trail with good people.

    My Lenz is only 31 or 32 lbs (depends on which fork I'm using), thank you very much The 26 lb bike gets to go with me on FOTP.

    Oh yeah, on my way down on Sat. I saw some hikers with a couple really small boys so I got off my bike because I didn't want to scare them. The littlest one, probably 3 1/2 or 4, looked at me like I was crazy and said "You brought your bike? You can't ride you bike here" in that toddler voice. It was so cute, so I told him "sure you can buddy, you just have to be a Bad Muthafuka"...just kidding. I just smiled and said you just have to be real careful
