    Sweet!

    Hi Ronbo!

    Glad you got your bike running. At least you get to go riding!

    I've been sick the last week -- that sucks all energy out of my desire to ride, even when the weather is nice.

    I'm gonna fix that Saturday, though! :O

    That's life; too sick to ride but not sick enough to stay home from work.

    We'll get back out there, it ain't snowing yet.

    You're telling me- I went twice last weekend and loved both rides. I did pick up a concussion in a soccer game on Monday, so I might be out for the remaining sunny days.

    I am stoked to report that today was just as good as yesterday, probably even better...
    Only thing is, you have to go get it, it most likely won't come to you.

    Don't Get Much Better Than This

    Today, I rode a trail that is not on any map. I had to ride on a paved road, then an unpaved road to get there, but I rode a bike the whole way.
    The best part of the ride was that I met one of my neighbors. He saw me ride by his house and jumped on his bike to catch up with me going up a hill just to say "Hi". He introduced himself and told me I could ride across his property if I stayed on the main road. Pretty f'ing cool.
    I decided to go farther into the boonies where I rode that unmapped trail. After a mile or so, I ran into a bear sitting in the middle of the trail. It ran off in the woods but I figured since I was alone in the middle of nowhere, I should turn around and head home. When I got back on a logging road headed home, a cougar ran out of the woods about twenty yards ahead of me, looked at me, then ran into the woods on the other side of the road.
    Seeing bears is pretty common, they run away when they see you. They are black bears, usually about 200-250lbs. I reckon. Cougars are always there, you hardly ever see them. The one that ran out in front of me was only about 45lbs., but to see one in the wild, and a wild bear as well, really a day I'll remember.
    Saw some wild turkeys, too, barely remember that.....

    Sweet!

    Dude!

    You received many gifts!

    Some Native Americans consider it a gift from the Earth to even see a Wild Animal.

    It's kind of nice when we can co-exist, since it *IS* their home.

    That's exactly the way I feel. I've never seen a cougar in the wild, it was quite exciting(and where is the helmet cam when you need it?).
    You know they are there, you just hardly ever see them, I think about it a little as I'm riding alone in the more remote areas. I see bears about every other ride in this particular area.

    Yes, it's surprising, to say the least, to see one during the day. Once could posit that it was sick or something, but better to think of it as a gift, IMHO.

    My friend (in CO) Migz rides often at night in the high country, and he brings his dogs. I always figured it was partly for protection. He used to scan a clearing with his helmet light and often saw pairs of eyeballs looking back at him. Talk about spooky! And he usually rode with no other humans!

    I saw it about an hour before sunset. Once the sun dips below the trees and hills, the temperature is dropping quite a bit, that probably gets them moving. It wasn't very big either, maybe 45 pounds, so it might have been a juvenile. I've seen signs of elk and there's plenty of deer around, so lot's of stuff to chase around.
    I think the sick ones are the ones you have to watch out for, I don't think a normal cougar would attack an adult human unless it was really hungry or sick.

    Get Out There

    I've lived in the city and had to drive for miles to go riding. I've been lucky enough to have awesome trails across the street. Either way, the idea is to ride whenever you can.
    When you see my name on this forum and click on the thread, I hope you will see something that makes you want to ride.

    That part of the Gorge is full of cougars. I saw one off of Trail 400 one time and it was very cool....

    Dude, you need to stop using this old-ass thread!

    P.S. I hope you got a ride in! I rode near my house last night, and the weather was unbelievable for late October! Shorts and short sleeves? Woo hoo!

    Now just 6 months until it gets nice again ...

    I have been riding St George and Moab the last week and came home to this cold, nasty rain. It is like getting hit in the face with a brick.

    A brick in the face would be enough of a hint for most people ...

    Maybe the Universe is telling you to move ... to move far far away from here, to perhaps some place so far away that they don't have Internet ...

    Just wondering. I don't give a rat's arse what you say or write. I do find it funny that Oregon guys are so dogmatically committed to this rain soaked area with rides over an hour away.

    Funny?

    I'm guessing you mean funny in an ironic way.

    Not sure I can speak for all Oregon guys, but that's not really the point.

    The difference between you, IMHO, and what you call "Oregon guys" is nothing but a different attitude.

    The fact is, we are here, and it rains. And we like to ride our bikes.

    I grew up here, moved away for a bunch of years (bad idea) and moved back 5 years ago. I grew up wondering why so many people didn't like the rain. But when I moved back and thought the rain would be no problem I was surprised to find out I had become wimpy.

    My first winter back I rode like 3 times. I kept waiting for a nice day/weekend, but none came! (It rained 40 days in a row when I first moved back here! I thought God was going to smite us!)

    Then I had a flash: I could just buck it up and ride in the rain! I got myself a local single speed so I didn't muck up my regular bike, and I started riding.

    Yes, I'm still kind of wimpy, but I ride at least 2-3 times a week even when its raining and I have nobody to ride with. Why? Because I like to ride!

    You, on the other hand, seem to take every opportunity to complain. That may not be the case, but it is the way you come across on this forum. Are your complaints valid? Yes, I'm sure they are (at least some of the time). Do they fix anything? NO!

    And even if you personally choose to look at the glass as half empty, it really is not a good way to make friends when you are so vocal about it.

    I apologize for giving you so much sh*t, in that we've never met, and it's kind of cowardly of me to put you down so easily when we haven't ridden together. You might actually be a likable guy, in person. So this is an open invite: come ride with me next (or almost any) weekend in Tillamook. Yes, it will probably be raining, and if not then it'll be even more fun.

    I know you say you don't give a "rat's arse", but I also suspect you do, because you're human and we all do. And once you ride with me I can change my signature!

    I've never met him either, and I hope I never do. I don't care much for fools, and based on nearly everything I've ever heard from Jaybo, he's a fool.

    What makes him so distasteful? Nobody likes a complainer. Dude's a freakin' wet blanket. Here are some words that inspire me personally, and I imagine the attitude that the words below convey would make the bearer welcome most anyplace, most anytime:

    "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain." --Maya Angelou

    I believe this photo may have been from the pre-helmet era. Got one of the first Look "eggshell" helmets the following year for a NORBA race, the first hardshell Bell wasn't out yet, "Skid Lids" came out shortly after this photo was taken. We were still wearing "hairnets" on our road bikes.

    I think that's a GT with a U-brake in the photo. I believe I owned a Bell Tourlite boat anchor around that time.

    We rode dirt bikes, so wearing helmets was fine with us. I only have a few helmetless photos from way back when.
    My bike is sporting the Zefal frame pump and water bottle from the Solvang Century. I remember buying that GT Karakoram, it was one of about six mountain bikes in the local bike shop. It's either an '88 or '89. Weighed about 35 pounds. I think Don's bike was a Cannondale.
    Here I am on the old GT Lead Sled a few months later at the NORBA Nationals

    I remember the lycra-covered styro cooler helmet phase very well. Buying custom sewn covers to customize your lid enabled the coolest kids to look the part.

    I remember the neon pink & neon green days... oh, and I had a custom pair of snake skin lycra tights... damn I had it goin' on back then.

    Looks like Don is on the same bike he rides now! LOL!

    BTW, I've ridden when it's about 12 degrees (F) outside! At least for me that was past my limit.

    You and Don would have made a great team; we used to call him "Neon Don".

    Got out for 25 miles of some of "Bend's Best" today. Hero dirt abound, and great buddy's to enjoy it with.

    I just have to say I love the new facelift on lower Storm King. Joan Rivers would be proud. For those who have not ridden lower Storm King in the past month or so, do yourself a favor and chunck out sometime to "get one in" before the snow flies.

    Much thanks to COTA and the people out making our trails better.

    That was Hee Haw Fun!

    Then, headed over to 8 Mile Creek around lunch time... stopped by the fire lookout and someone was lodging there. I'm gonna have to try that sometime, either biking or on a snowshoe trip. Lots of trees down along the lower portion along the creek... about 4 or 5... since the last time someone went through with a saw earlier this summer.

    We were out in the woods today with our chainsaws, but we were cutting firewood. Gets cold around here in the winter. We cut blowdowns across trails when we get the chance, but things are not as groomed as in other places. Cutting, hauling and splitting a half cord of wood makes it real easy to step over a log on the trail and forget you ever saw it.

    Gonna hit something in Tilly tomorrow, for the first time in several weeks (between being sick, being busy, and being lazy!).

    Gee, that's darn considerate of you. Actually, we just got back from a nice little ride. Don's on his way home with a sack of wild mushrooms for dinner.
    Glad to hear you're back on the trail. Thinking we only have another day or two before those storms start rolling in from the Gulf of Alaska.

    Get Out There

    The weather is changing quickly, and not for the better.
    Get out there if you can.

    When it starts raining around here, I store the bikes and dig out the skis.

    Video quality isn't that good, but I'll also never claim to be a photog/techy geek.

    Mt Hood secret stashes...





    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    I'm with you there.
    I've had a season pass for Meadows the past couple years, it has lost all it's charm for me. Think I'll go for snowshoes this season instead of lift lines and less vert but more adventure.

    I finally broke down and purchased a lift ticket last season at Meadows after skiing in the BC exclusively for the last 3 years, gotta say, don't miss riding lifts.

    For me, BC skiing and Mtbing provide a perfect balance. Plus, here in the PNW, we can pretty much do both all year round.

    We farmed these tracks all day, and I bet 90% of the Hood Mt bikers have ridden right past here.

    I'll be thinking of you and Don ... maybe mostly about beer, but also about you guys!

    Got a ride in, got rained on

    Hey Ronbo!

    I did get a ride in Satruday, mostly before the rain, but it was on the back roads of Bald Peak.

    Here's Elly patiently waiting while I take a picture. (She wanted me to hurry up to beat the rain, I said "be patient". She was right.)



    When I got to the top of Bald Peak, I saw the usual Hang- and Para-Gliders taking advantage of the windy weather (despite low visibility).



    and

    Quite a few of free-heelers out here... Had no idea there were that many of us - that were also doing the MtB thing as much.

    Would be great to get a day or two of turns together this season!

    I will say - you guys have put together some really nice shots of the early season.

    I'm taken the ol' snow dog himself up tomorrow for a bit of playtime in the early goods. If any of you happen to be out there - you can't miss us... particularly him... a Big A$$ Snow dog named Takoda! He's the one that just looks like he was born for this.
    Ciao,

    This looks like a good year for backcountry action. You know there's never a crowd, so maybe we can all do a little carving. Nothing like laying into a nice, solid turn....
