    This is one of "the most popular trails in Bend". Famous might be a better description. There was a big crash here a few years back. She lost control coming down this section and hit a tree on the right side of this picture. Medivac'd out only to recover and win a the state Championship.

    I can throw out hints since I am 150 miles away with no chance of transporting YM to a new location....

    Other threads have referred to this trail as "Classic"

    I know where this is. I assume someone will grab him before this weekend, but if not I'll pack YMII to higher ground Saturday morning.

    Never heard about the accident ref'd above. Who was that? Also, is this the section of trail Willem was having maintenance issues with?

    Is that seriously right up the middle of the canyon? If it's where I think it is, it looks totally different in this photo than from on a bike.

    I'm going up there this afternoon, whether the little dude is there or not.

    Little guy hitched a ride with me for a bit. He wanted to head toward water, but when I stopped along the way, I looked back and he was off climbing a rock.

    Location

    13818 divided by 3 is near by
    Are you thirsty?
    Do you need to get some water?
    Think water storage and you will be on your way to finding YM JR.

    Hint

    Yep, clean water is nearby. Also, it's a connector between trail networks.

    Illegal? Hmmm, been riding those connectors for years.... Like that the climb there got some love. Still uncleanable to me though I have tried.

    I know where he is. Unfortunately, I'm about 2,700 miles away so I can't play.

    I hope GS left him with one of those little cocktail umbrellas ... it's gonna rain.

    P.S. I heard a rumor that willem3 got stopped at the Redmond airport last week after the TSA received a tip that he was involved in some sort of eastern European plastic figurine trafficking scam. Anybody else hear about that?

    Connector

    [QUOTEIllegal? Hmmm,][/QUOTE]

    Yes its on private property.

    So is YM still in the same spot? No one has picked him up yet?

    Interesting, I had no idea. Is the gravel road leading to this connector also private. The online map seems to label it as such. I take it the owners (corporate perhaps) are OK w/ MTB taffic.

    I thought about scooping YM up and heading up the hill, but Flagline was calling this weekend. That short section of Todd Horse camp trail, north of the hwy, is in great shape.

    I went to give YM Jr some company today and he was no where to be found. Did someone else beat me to him? Did he have a free climbing accident? Anyone?

    Seems like an open rock face is probably a bad place to 'hide' the lil fella..

    Sorry everyone, I went back to check this morning too, and YM is indeed gone. BTW, someone had to climb up there to see him - he was wedged in a pocket not visible from the trail. I'll see who I can find as a replacement...

    Too Many eye's

    We need to be careful were we hide him in the future. Our trails are way busier than they used to be ten years ago. I hope we can find another one. Third time is a charm. YM III

    The problem is Yellowman is too cute; people want to take him home

    Maybe a "camo" Yellowman is the way to go.

    Big Fat Yellow Man

    I can guarantee Yellow Man will make a comeback on the Big Fat Tour this weekend. I have no idea what happened to YM1 & YM2, but YM WILL RISE AGAIN!

    With all the YM kidnappings, have to wonder if someone is watching the thread and intentionally screwing the game for everyone.

    Fellow MTBRians, I would like to introduce you to YM3.

    Below is his ride for his upcoming adventure.

    Now, I propose a new twist to this game...

    I will be riding the Big Fat rec ride tomorrow. Somewhere along the route, I will place YM3 (likely in the high country). Unfortunately, I will be driving the Budget truck for the first wave of riders, so will be starting with the second wave, BUT...

    Find him, move him, take pictures during the ride. I will award Beer* for pictures at the after-party tomorrow night.

    I am The Schwagman.

    Edit: Hint; I will find him a spot somewhere high on Flagline.

    *If you don't drink or can't have Beer, I'll have substitute schwag.

    Forgive me MTBRians for I have sinned. It has been 2 days since my last post.

    My duties with the BBFT held me until nearly the last rider got started, so rather than leaving YMIII on Flagline, he rode with me to a secret lair at the conflux of Sector16 and Upper Whoops.

    To protect YMIII from the feral element, you'll notice I took it upon myself to add a little leash. On the positive side, YMIII can now assist in opening Beers.

    Good luck YMIII! Let's hope your mission lasts a lot longer this time around.
