    The pack raft looks ideal for the Cook Inlets tides. Did you paddle to Seldovia too?

    ha! ideal? are you kidding me!
    Dylan and Bjorn Olsen went from Homer to Seldovia earlier this summer with pugsleys and packrafts, I missed that one. I think it was 4 days, good riding and lots of ocean.

    I'll finish the lost coast video eventually, the footage is too good not to.

    back to the beach

    Headed back out to the lake again today. It still amazes me what these bikes can roll over. I took a beating when the rocks got big but as long as you can hang on and pedal the bike just eats it up.

    fist sized rocks

    grapefruit to melon sized rocks

    Still need talent and I ran out

    Hope to get in more beach rides as the lake level drops before winter. Lots of fun.

    Hey MT ,

    great beach ride

    Fatbikes do `eat it up` but it can be a `bucking broncho ride`

    Have you considered the Mav SC32 up front?

    It really does make a difference !

    Looking forward to more of your Pix .

    Cheers,
    Dr FG.

    Thanks Doc! I blame you and the kid for getting me hooked

    I have thought about the mav ~ but ~ I do like the simplicity of a rigid. Kind of stuck in analysis paralysis for now.

    Had a friend down here in Australia who rode 10 deserts, 7000 odd km, sand dunes & towed a custom fat tyre trailer. Two different trailers shown as one snapped. Can read his increadible story in link below. Very inspiring guy.

    when is surly going to make a fat tire big dummy? That would make more sense to me than a trailer. Certainly a crazy trip though!

    Ward, I've done that, have a hunt around under the pics of your bike, or something like that, there are some pics of it there.

    Bearbait, I hope you keep that grizzly on a leash. Down in the lower 48 we have leash laws, don't you? Nice pics everyone. I have a snauxbike, maybe I'll take the plunge on a fatbike for my next purchase...

    This will probably the last beach day for me this year and conditions were perfect
    Lake level is low and strong winds from the south kept the waves down and the beach wide. I made it as far west as I can without a boat. When I was done I was ready to ride more but found considerable shore line re-construction headed east. Have to wait for next year. Something to look forward to.

    This is the best I can do for sand. I think CK and doc got that covered anyway

    Thanks for the inspiration guys! I have really enjoyed it! Now I need to find more ridable beach. Lots more.
