    Yellowman likes custom handbuilt steel and log rides after picnicking. Good luck!

    seedy, I'm glad you moved the little yellow dude since I was stumped on Nat's location. Good on ya for feeding him too. What trail was he hiding on by the way?

    He was on KGB where it climbs out of Tetherow. Do you know where he is now?

    Right, I've only taken that route once, but remember that rock feature now. It looked like Marvin's vicinity, but I forgot about KGB down to Tetherow. Good one Nat. I'm pretty sure on the current location, which is one of my fav trails to descend on. Hmmm take him higher, lower, or ????????? There might be snow coming this week.........................

    Seedy, we've never met but I recognize your bike from when we've passed each other on the trails.

    You're not missing much.My bike is much more memorable than I am anyway. I am that white guy from Bend that wears a Giro helmet and Smith sunglasses.

    Today's YMIII Adventures

    So I took him up a little higher to give him a taste of what’s to come. He didn't like that much and talked about somehow moving in the southwesterly direction, like Arizona. I didn't break his heart by informing him of the rules. Anyway, he is asking for a little layering if someone can donate some threads.

    We then checked out some sweet trail under construction. (Note: We treaded lightly although the moisture was settling in nicely) I explained that these trails don't just appear out of thin air and YMIII is now interested in attending a work party.

    We then went sight seeing and found him a little shelter for a night or two, and then parted ways. He promised to keep his head down and only talk to mtb'ers, even if someone appears to have a parka his size.

    If you're gonna make YM live down by the river, at least give him a van and some government cheese!

    I gave him shelter. Can someone help him out with food, transportation, and clothing? He's part of the 99% too...................

    Seems like YM has had little activity, probably due to the recent weather. Hopefully the current location isn't to obscure. Anyone recognize this stretch of river with a well known named falls? Pictures may not have communicated that.

    It's not Arizona, but I'm wondering if YM would be interested in "wintering" at the Horse Ridge area. Are there enough recognizable features and is there enough traffic to continue YM adventures out there for a few months? I think this could be accomplished without violating rule #1 & 2.

    I know where he is and wish I could come over the mountain to take him to a new location. I am curious, does this trail remain clear of snow through the Winter months?

    Up there yesterday, Couldn't find him, but I did find someone's stash box. Unfortunately all it had in it was some chain lube, a Clif Bar and an empty tire tube box. Stuck it back in the rocks. Hopefully someone got him as I did see some fresh tire tracks in the area.

    Yeah, I was worried he might have been hidden a little too well. Seedy, you were probably in the right spot, but for others (if he is still there) he is right above Dillon Falls. The last two pics above are looking downriver. Hopefully someone has him relocated already.

    I've thought about taking him out there this winter. There's plenty of places to hide him, but nothing so recognizable that sticks out like a sore thumb.

    I still say he journey east!

    Moving day

    He was glad someone finally showed up. Said good bye to the river in preparation for the ride home. He drank my beer when we got home even though I did all the work. He will be sleeping outside in a safe place tonight in preparation for the road bike ride to his wintering grounds. I am not about to ride my mountain bike that far on the road.

    Heading east for the winter

    Sorry it has taken a couple days to get this posted up.

    As I was on the road bike he is not that far away from the pavement. I know, crappy cell phone pics...

    I was too busy testing the relative hardness of the ground in various spots today. In case anyone is wondering, the rocks are still hard out there so pick landing in dirt if you have a choice.

    If it is still there when I get back from AZ I will grab him again.

    Horse Ridge was money today!

    Found this little dude hangin in a tree with a bored look on his face. Decided to give him a room with a view. Now he's much happier even though he didn't move far.

    I must have ridden right past him today, but didn't see him. The trails out there are in awesome shape! I wonder if YM's been buffing them out when nobody's around.

    Was riding up the hill, pedal through a few rocks, and go "hey I know I've seen that spot before!".

    Gave him a bit of a south view for some sun.

    Darn, how did I miss it?? What search terms did you guys use? I guess I just overlooked it on page 2 or 3.

    Thanks!

    Wonder if he'll like the PRT system?

    I didn't use the MTBR search, it really sucks. In the very upper right hand corner of the page there is a "Google custom search", this is what I used.

    I presume he's still at Horse Ridge? I never did go get him to take to PRT. Figured that would be too far away from his comforts of home.

    I don't think that's the real Yellow Man... I suspect foul play. Watch your back.

    We didn't find him, but I've never seen a nine year old work so hard and have that much fun on a bike. If nothing else, this yellow man game added more flavor to a great set of rides.

    It was unbelievably crowded out there on Saturday with all the bike demos going on. I'm surprised he wasn't found by someone.

    Oh, that's too bad. I was hoping your daughter would find him. I'm glad she had a good time at least. Maybe next time.

    Found Yellow Man! He was at the bottom of KGB, close to Tetherow. My wife and daughter really enjoyed looking for him.

    We relocated him and here's the pics to his new location.
    Happy hunting!

    Cool, game on! I'm pretty sure I know that spot but it'll be a couple of days before I can get up there.

    Okay...first time posting here...long-time 'lurker,' though. Stars were aligned, ....I and Yellowman finally crossed pathes. Riding with tired client, so the little guy didn't go far.

    Where did you find him at?
    My wife and I looked for him on Tumelo Ridge, Swede Ridge and South Fork yesterday.
    I think we know where the new spot is.
    Thanks

    Found the tree pictured above yesterday, but no YM. Perhaps he has been kidnapped. ??

    If I had to guess one of the frisbee golfers has him. The spot looks a bit on the exposed side.

    Game on

    I found Yellow Man. He was being held hostage at the Leapin' Lizards Toy Company on NW Wall. After a quick negotiation and $1.99 in ransom the little guy is free.

    Here he is repaying his debt by airing up my tires before the ride. Pics of his new hideout will be posted later tonight. Stay tuned ...

    Yellow Man has been entombed.

    You either know this one or you don't. That tree trunk is unique.

    Who's going to exhume Yellow Man from his sarcophagus?

    First hint: He is located somewhere
    West of Bend
    East of Elk Lake
    North of Sunriver
    South of Broken Top Mtn.

    I hope that doesn't give it away.

    Well, that's not the answer I have written on my card. That doesn't mean it's wrong since many trails have multiple names. Outside the realm of automobiles, I've never heard that name before. This is a legit COTA trail; complete with a steward and trail signage.

    Next clues:

    Trail steward = Kent Howes (Linky help here)

    West of The Lair
    East of Storm king
    North of Cascade Lakes Hwy
    South of Skyliners Road

    YellowMan is ready to rise from the crypt.

    Next clues:

    The trail is ... CIA

    Where is the trail you ask?

    Hints:
    A) I just told you
    B) West of ELV

    That's it. If you guys are still stumped, I'll do a spoiler with turn by turn directions in my next post.

    I am at a distinct disadvantage in this game compared with "locals". I only spend 2-3 months here per year (live in NC) and thus I can't learn the trails and all the special landscape features that many of you know well. As a professional trail consultant, I look at many miles per year of trail in many different locations (have worked in 5 different states this year) and trails start running all together at a point.

    Imagine my luck when out on a ride over the weekend and I just happened upon the spot in question (west of ELV). I had seen the photo of this tree here just hours before heading out on a ride and picking some arbitrary route for the day on a ride with my wife. I recognized the tree from the photo and begin to look for where YM might be entombed. As you can see from the photos, I thought I might have found the grave sight at the base of the tree. After a bit of digging, I came up empty handed.

    I tried, but no luck in finding YM. Found the tree, but not YM.
    Was I in the right spot? Did someone snag him before we got there?

    Woodman!

    That's the spot. Like I said, that tree is unique and easy to recognize.

    I'm afraid my poor photography skills might have led you astray. If you look at my second picture, you'll see Yellowman sitting up against a rock to the right of the tree. If you compare the second and third photos carefully, you'll see a rock on top of where Yellowman was sitting in photo #2. Sorry, I didn't realize how far out of focus Yellowman was when I shot that second pic. The third pic is more focused and zoomed in on the spot, but that's after the tomb cover (sort of flat rock) was put over Yellowman.

    FWIW, I'm not local either (east coaster) so I only get to play the game for about 2 weeks each year. When I arrived last week, Yellowman was lost so I figured I had to get the game jump started again if I wanted to have a chance of finding him (after someone else moves him from my hiding spot). Unfortunately, I've only got another 3 days left.

    Update: I just added a zoomed version of the second photo. Yellowman is right in the middle of the shot.

    Looking back at the photos, I now see the errors we made in looking. I got way dirty for nothing.

    Now I really know where to look, maybe I can back up there today and move the little guy along to a new spot for you. We have friends coming in from NC tomorrow, so that has my attention in getting ready for them.
