    Happy to check the DMNDC off the list. Got it this morning and it was painful. As usual. Like a dope, I allowed myself to drift over to the right on one of the steeper sections near the top. Somehow plowed through. Don't HAVE to do it again for a year.

    It was busy on Dogmeat today. I saw two other riders going up. I tried to make it without dabs, but after a week of 12 hours each day in the office and a doughnut for breakfast, I didn't have it in me. I tried a second time, but swerved into the loose rocks and dabbed again. OK, back to a some training runs on Ranch Road in Fremont Older, a couple of Mission Peaks at lunch time and then I'll try this monster again.

    You are correct sir

    Quadzilla ...Motobecane Brian and myself also gave dogmeat a shot today. Looks like some folks are wanting to bring cleaned dogmeat to the Turkey day ride. I plan to ! .

    I am heading out with some free time to try and get this done. Will be starting in downtown LG, go through st joes and up overgrown. Then hopefully up dogmeat with no dabs. Only have about 2.5 hours to ride so wont be messing around. Going to remember to lower my tire pressure at the overgrown dogmeat intersection and just grind up dogmeat. I will be parking by summit bikes around 1:30pm.

    I'd like to say wish I could join you but this is Dogmeat so the proper reply is glad I can't join you. Good luck and conditions should be pretty dang good.

    Yeah no other reason to join considering my company is not really worth it. The worst reason is I feel a touch sick right now but going to give it a spin. Hope to see others out enjoying the day. I will report back when I can. See you all later.

    LG man and I watched him do it! Marco came down dogmeat as we were going up. He crushed the 20/40 deal today! Congrats to both of them!

    Cleaned it this morning. I think the secret was fueling with oatmeal instead of the Reuben sandwich I had last week.

    Good sir please add my name! Went up overgrown and went slowly to conserve energy and power for the ultimate test. Was going along great and got to about halfway up the steep pitch and slid out. I was trying to stick to the non-loose stuff on the left side. Don't do try that! I ended up going straight up the middle the 2nd time and didn't even have one of those "turning to the side without meaning to" moments. Glad to have checked this off my list!

    Well done, Paul! I kinda like that semi-smooth path on the left of the trail, but it has a nasty sideways slope to it, so maybe straight down the middle is better.

    Yeah JL- I was thinking the same as you. I slid a little sideways and I am sure my rear tire pressure didn't help on that part because the bike started to come out from beneath me. The middle is hard too but I have to tell myself to keep on the power and momentum will carry you through. Hard to ignore my crazy HR but I figured I wasn't too likely to expire while trying. Saw a guy coming down and and he asked if I was going to make it up. I told him that it was my second go around and yeah, I wasn't going to turn around again. Determination and anger can do a lot for me when I ride.

    Atta boy...I stuck to the left all the way up and managed it ok but it can get in your head with the off camber feel.

    Well done, well done. Also, that is a great shot if it's from the self timer (or did somebody take it for you?) Anyway perfect lighting and such.

    Man, I need to get my wife's bike set up (i.e. the bike w/ gears) and give this a shot.

    By the way, how does Dogmeat compare to Ranch Road over at Fremont Older? I've never tried going up Dogmeat but used to ride up Ranch Road all the time when I lived near there.

    Thanks Gideon, self timer propped on a rock! I dropped it earlier in the ride but it is my work camera so no big deal. So yes, dogmeat is very similar to ranch road in FO. Just a whole lot longer and looser rocks. Ranch road might be a degree or two steeper but it is so short it is way easier. If you drift off to the side there are bigger rocks and a few rutted sections that will screw up any attempts. Give it a go and I have never heard of any SS'ers doing this no-dab. You could be the first!

    Got it done! Panicked a little on the last wall when I changed my mind from taking the off camber left line to the looser but flat center. Kept it together though!
