    F**k it!, just Huck it!...The real story @ REM

    With few exceptions REM is as good as it has ever been, despite what AndyN reports. The 'Bandoleros' decided that depsite observations of downed tree's interrupting flow on a sacred trail, it deserved a look-see. So we headed out early this AM to get a birds-eye-view of the situation



    There were a couple of Turners on-hand



    knob on the first section of the descent






    and not far behind...







    Since we didn't have saws or cutting tools available, we made some modifications to the most current obstacles that we encountered. Sorry, but these weren't around on earlier trips, but "where there's a 'wheel' there's a way"







    Obligatory trail shot...



    DUCK!



    Splash!







    How is this bad?



    and yet another energy stripping obstacle...damn those logs!



    Knob on the new RFX....





    So where is the SFBFL?



    Knob and RCC on 'The Wall'





    Afterwards we decided to cheer on the Big Freakin' Loopers in style...Bandoleros style

    X-post on passion

    Here's my photos and view of the ride.

    Santa Fe Little Friggin Loop

    Things that come to mind from yesterday:

    The group of women at Aspen Vista who said "oh, big bikes. Are you riding the SFBFL?" and your reply "no, we're riding the SF Little Friggin Loop."

    The gaunt guy on the green on-one single speed who asked "You guys okay" and your response "yeah, - uh are you okay?"

    Someone cut that 3 foot thick tree at the bottom of the trail that's been there since last year. Or was that just the effect of Bandoleros coming through?
    See the trails, be one with FOO-MTB.
    Slow-core. -.. .-. .. -. -.- .... --- -- . -... .-. . .--

    How would you know? You rode REM for the 1st time ever last year, and who was it who showed you the trail...


    Also missing from your post are pictures of the many trees blocking the trail that are difficult to climb over, and the downed trees impossible to climb over where hike-arounds had to be routed.


    Glad you boys enjoyed yourselves, but you have FAILED at spinning a new truth about the current state of REM.
