    Stopped by & checked on YM last night but left him in the same spot. He was impressed with the fancy demo bike I was on & gave me a huge thumbs up for the dropper post.

    YM on the move

    Yellowman had a nice ride on Friday. I picked him up from his last location and we headed downhill. He enjoyed checking out the Pivot 429 I had as a demo (my bike was stolen last week so I am checking out new rides) and he was hooting and hollering as we rode down many hills to find him a new location to hang out a bit.

    After our social calls we loaded back up and headed down some more trail. We were riding a for a bit and decided to take another break and eat a bit below some nice rocks. I sat down for a bit and the next thing I knew YM was scrambling up to some solid rock to try out rock climbing. He said he was training for some of the routes over at Smith Rocks and I replied "go for it". When I got ready to leave YM was still having fun soloing some steep faces so I said goodbye and let him know others would be along soon to take him somewhere else. I hope that happens soon as his forearms might get a bit pumped if he has to "hang out" too long in his current location.

    If you go looking for YM, he will be up above the trail and visible. Please be careful retrieving him, there are a few loose rocks in the area.

    I was riding up Phil's last night when Yellowman literally jumped out next to that burned tree. His cloaking device had come off and he felt he needed to move. Stoked to ride on the front, we headed over hill & dale to his new location.

    I was riding along and look who I found!

    He said bro, I need to see some climbs and terrain! no more of this in the dark stuff.... so off we went.

    He has a friend MIKE, so I took him from kents house up through the trees, on a zig zag rocky climb so he could find his buddies house, his buddy has a nice view!

    his buddies house was ironically a tree...

    hes hanging on for dear life, his bro mike had to go grab some grub...

    Got YM - it was @ the back-end of my ride and approaching an afternoon appt. when I captured him. That said, I didn't have time or a decent location to place him from Voodoo back to Phil's trailhead. I plan to send him back to the forrest tomorrow afternoon - sorry for breaking the rules (he's enjoying the Bend town life tonight....

    Maybe Yellowman has kidnapped jjMarS... and taken him to the Yellowman mother ship... where they are playing a "find the human" game as we speak...

    Hey JJmars,

    Time to carpe diem and dimittam flavis h0mo. (Google translate rocks!)

    See, the reason the OP made the rules was to prevent this. You have wasted some of the last few good days of summer for this game by being an idiot.

    Rules:
    Yellowman travels by bike only (i.e., don't stick him in your car and drive him to Moab, never to be seen again).
    Yellowman spends the night outside (i.e., don't take him home with you only to have your dog chew him to pieces).
    Yellowman should be easily found by anyone who knows where to look for him (i.e., the object is not to make him impossible to find) but don't make it so obvious that someone who isn't playing the game takes him away, never to be seen again.

    These are very simple rules, and you know it.

    Found YM being held hostage at the toy store again. Paid the ransom and got him out of there.

    YM was very thirsty after of a week of captivity and suggested a visit to the Broken Top Bottle Shop and Ale Cafe.

    Rumor is that they will have Berserker Imperial Stout on tap any day now. Not to be missed if you enjoy a great Stout!

    Chillin' with a glass of tasty brew.

    Eesh, I can't imagine a bunch of dirty Mtn bikers in baggy shorts, 5tens and hydration packs in a dance class. Any more than I could imagine the typical ballet dancer on a Mtn bike in her leotard, tutu & toe shoes. Now, if you put her in baggies, 5tens & pack on the trail, we've got something! (it's called fantasy).

    Moral of the story; guys, stay away from the dance studio!

    To All YM Players - Please accept my sincere apologies. Without going into detail, I'll simply say that some unforeseen exigencies kept me from responding with pictures, updates, etc. I'm hopeful for forgiveness and perhaps escape unnecessary negative posts - but if you must there's not much I can do...

    In moving ahead, I do not want to mess up the game, again, (i.e. it appears that a new YM has been placed), but I will reveal where I just placed him. I did have youngsters in mind in terms of his current location (i.e. I've followed this thread since its beginning and have came across some posts of disappointed younger YM Players who've not had success) so I felt as though a more simple location would be good idea, but still challenging. Perhaps this is your chance. Here you go....

    Well, I found the replacement today on way up to Helipad...(jj, I should have taken him from you in the parking lot that day and brought him with me to Tiddlywinks!)

    Anyway - figure out which one y'all want to use.

    I didn't know there was a "feature" behind that big rock. Any chatter on the "domesticated" YM?

    Don't squish Yellowman!

    I peeked in the stump yesterday for the domesticated YM and he was gone.

    It's nearing the end of the MTB season - his new location should provide access to the younger YM player......

    Of course.....I tore-up HR all thru last winter. I even rode Phil's complex into January & intermittently after that....I just meant that some of the seasons best riding is in Sept. & early Oct. in my opinion - unless you like riding with layers of apparel (i.e. due to sub 32deg. weather) - which I don't really mind....

    In terms of the YM Game, I'm hopeful that some family rides are planned for Sat. and that some youngsters can have a shot at the smiley dude. As mentioned in previous posts, I've seen a few Fam's that've had a go w/o success. His current location should provide an adventure in finding for the younger crowd....

    Later YM Players.....

    Hmmm....Perhaps you might look a little closer between the bifurcated trunks. An "Aha!" moment awaits you....

    OK, that's funny! Originally I thought that was some trinket hanging between the bifurcated trunks. (Damn iPhone). Aha moment realized. That thing needs a new paint job, maybe in a Halloween theme.

    We had been sitting at the last location for a good 15 minutes having a snack before I looked over and spotted the bifurcated trunks. I jumped up in excitement and scared my kids, but they figured out what was up and got in the game.

    It's within a 1/4 mile of the previous spot where we found it. Think like a tired 8 year-old who wants to be done.

    My guess is that Ben's is more than a 1/4 mile from the previous location.

    Okay, pretend you are a tired eight-year-old kid who wants to go home. You are sitting at the orange chicken. Which way would you go to get back to town as easily as possible?

    Hint: Not climbing up Express. Not uphill. Think the path of least resistance.

    Got that earlier Nat, didn't help. And I AM a tired 8 year old kid, trapped in an old man's body. Think slow and stupid and needs a LOT of help. ;o)

    Go down the dirt road a quarter-mile from the chicken, north side of the road on your way back to the trailhead.

    Thnx Nat. I've searched Phil's Canyon to Phil's TH, around Kent's and everything that connects (i.e. Ben's, MTB, KGB, and the Canyon), thru Marvin's Gardens to COD, all-thru KGB until it connects to Kent's, from Storm King to COD, and the list goes on....

    In all my riding around Phil's Complex, I don't think I've ever ridden that Fire Rd. Thnx for sharing - I obviously need to expand my knowledge of the area. That said, someone will likely get the YM dude and give him a fresh start in a new home within hours....

    Also, you've All likely noticed that NOAA is forecasting 60+ deg. weather from Friday thru Monday! I'm getting a bit anxious for some freshies, but I'll definitely take some more epic fall MTB conditions....sweet!

    Reached the YM after a 14 mile rip across the Phil's complex this evening. Arrived at his previous destination approx. 7:30pm - by the way, it was more like 1/2 mile from the Chx (i.e. not 1/4 mile ) Due to rules 1 & 2 (which I've found reason(s) to bend in the past), I decided that I should hold more tenaciously to the game rules and find someplace to tuck him in for the remaining balance of the night. Given his previous location coupled with the late hour of the evening, he's now placed in an easily reached home.

    That said, the pics were taken in the dark, so maybe they'll make it a bit more challenging than I think. Good luck....

    Yellow Man had a good time hanging out where the trails begin, but told me he wanted a view.

    He was getting a little cold and lonely - not too many people coming by anymore.

    FWIW, one of the OG Yellowman was still out at Horse Ridge, cooking over summer, in the same spot he was left last spring.

    Is he up past the trail down sand canyon? Is he past the trail's far "end"?

    Discounting the Horse Ridge fella' for now, is his west side twin awakened from hibernation?

    Any sightings?
