    Some Photos

    BigLaker took some really nice pictures on his trip down here to CO and UT and 'since he's a hoser and doesn't want to post them, I'll do it for him.

    This first batch is from our Molas Pass to Cascade Creek ride which I took the MassiveLaker on right off the plane . Make sure to take note of the altitude displayed on the watch.

















    More photos to come from Moab, stay tuned..................

    In Moab we started out spending a couple of hours out at Bartlett Wash. Not really a recommended ride, but it was fun to play around on the slickrock anyway. Next, we hit Amasa Back with a side trip down o the Pot Hole, great tech. climbing and even greater tech downhilling. Thumbs way high for that ride. Then we cought a shuttle up to Hazard for the classic Hazard/Kokopelli/UPS/LPS/Porc Rim ride (I guess this ride is even better if you get the shuttle all the way up to Burro Pass). I have never ridden so fast over such terrain and sent my bike off of so many things on one ride. I WILL ride this trail many more times before I am too old and decroded to do it any more, I have promised myself this and I will not fail.

    Enjoy the pics.

    Oh and Rando, I'll be waiting for you travel plans

    We've got some of that as well, you just have to get up to 11,000 feet to find it.

    (another pic from last week before GargantuanLaker got here).

    Thanks for posting some pics bones.
    I wasn't really stoked on a lot of my pics but I guess a few turned out OK minus some spots on my sensor!

    Hey CB: It was great riding with you again and sorry about the crack
    Good luck with the new bike!

    Back at you Sam!
    I do seem to have a crack problem, don't I. I need to be more of a finesse, lightweight rider, like bones.
    Anyway, I don't really come to the Alaska forum to see pics of my back yard, how about more from the last great wilderness?

    You know how I do.
    I float like a butterfly and stink like a bee(hind).

    You need to patent your "one legged rock drop worst possible line" technique, and then sell it to the rest of us.

    I got that way puffing all of that great Alaska......um......air for all of those years.



    Don't be fooled, BigLaker wasn't the only one wheezing that day. I rode that trail three times this year and it never seemed to get any easier. It never seemed to lose it's beauty either.

    Nice scenery, and looks like ColossalLaker captured it well. Travel plans aren't in the cards this year. Sorry. I'm missing out on a ton of opportunities too. Something's gotta give......

    Maybe you guys should think about picking up some pads for the rocky rides!

    Here's today's conditions, South Fork Rim Trail. You can see why I'm missing out! I'm not ready for this yet.

    Man that's a ton of snow, the AK fatbike crew is gonna have a long season

    We did pick up some pads. AllEncompassingLaker got some 661 elbow and knee guards and I got a set of RaceFace forearm/elbow guards. The pics were from the climb up Amasa Back. We padded up for the DH and then for the whole Hazard to town ride.

    Dude, those photos are fake, and you're a poop stain for posting fake photos for the enjoyment of AK'ans that haven't seen real sun in years. Ya bunch of fukin' Golumns.


    Sorry dude, Jamesons and various drunk fukers jumping off my roof have clouded my judgement.

    VIVA LA IRISH WHISKEY, AND FUK THE REST OF THE DOUCHE NOZZLE CLEANERS.

    Seriously, These guys are ridiculous. They're wreckin' up the place. I might even have to call the poelice on these savage bastards.

    Wow, I'm glad mtbr doesn't require a breathalizer test before posting. I'd have been hauled away for sure while trying to post that ^^^^^ mess.
