    Awesome video thanks for letting me live vicariously through you while I sit here at work. Also have to hate you just a little for all your dryness and not raining for the last week locations.

    Great video stoke. Thanks for putting that together. I love the 1080p HD option on YouTube. So sharp.

    Looking forward to the continuation.

    How'd you like Captain Ahab? I've heard it's well built, well-routed, flowy, though a bit sterile compared to some of the old school tech trails. Looks like fun and what I imagine the newly sanitized Porcupine Rim singletrack section will be like. Did you get a chance to ride that while you were there?

    Nice video. Noticed the trail marker said "Expert". What was the reason as I didnt see any outrageous drop offs or jumps or anything to technical. How long did that ride take? I'd be so tempted just to stop and take in the view.

    Warrup Krob! I like the Captain Ahab alot for the flow. As you mentioned, it is well built and routed. It is not technical at all. The rocks are so well put together that there really isn't any "negotiating" per se. I don't think it deserves the Double black diamond rating IMO because i have ridden some single black diamonds that are much more technical than that.

    Now ask me what my 1st favorite trail is in Moab and i'll tell you it is some Arizona Chunk that i love
