    Hawg: Nice write up and low down on your trip. That video was pretty awesome with the daylight disappearing and the city lights in the background. It looks like a fun fast in some spots trail with like you said a constant flow of little obstacles to overcome. Also your photos above tell of a great couple days of fun with some good hospitality from some of our own.

    Perhaps you missed the comparison photo of you and the wicked witch of the west photo. I couldn't resist the similarity between your two poses. Here it is again for posterity sake and in case you missed the first go around.
    Oh, I didn't miss it. Nope

    You've finally uncovered my true self. Wicked Lord Hawg, at your service...

    I can give you that deal, provided that you operate a brothel and I get 10% of gross revenue.

    As long as I can build a pump track...and an underground bunker I could live in! Hawg can ride the track in trade for use of his utilities once in a while.

    That's your job. I need you to scout them in Socal as quality candidates are far and between in Kingman.

    I do have to say something to Nic for the 144,562nd time...Please open a PinkBike account and upload your riding vids through them. Youtube is destroying the videos you are sharing with us.

    Login to Pinkbike.com

    One last thing to B&F...It's "PerfectZero", not "Almost Zero".
    Haha, I knew it was PerfectZero. But you know I have a hard time going with "actual" names. I probably should have gone with "Saved By Zero"... And since I don't know him that well, I didn't want to get super agro. Seems like a good dude, especially for being that tall.

    AWESOME. That is why I really like AZ. You were only a couple hours away from whatever terrain and climate you want to be in... lots of diversity there.

    Took a while to catch up on this thread! OMG great stuff.
    Great report and pics from Interbike
    Videos and bike pics from everyone!

    Singlesprocket and I went to the bikepark today (DH runs were too wet). I'm riding SS's ht (mine is still being pieced together). After riding the pumptrack, jumpline and skinnies. We headed to the Polish festival nearby. We met some polka dancers. SS feasted on perogies and Polish sausage and I had a pickle on a stick ... it was the only thing vegan On the ride back we avoided the crowds and rode a laneway and sidestreets

    Of course there are "benefits", but probably not in a traditional sense. Personally I'd rather have those over good health insurance coverage and good IRA match, so I'd say they are very competitive.

    Sounds like a great adventure Judy & Chris. Your pickle and sausage is looking supreme.

    A word of advice if you leave this thread for more than 3 day's set aside 6 hours to get caught up.

    Opti sounds like a good time on your anniversary except your bite marked seat of course. Congratulations again on that milestone you two have reached. Oh and more derails on the "almost" jeep tip over please.

    I love Vietnam, that first drop is my favorite. The go pro makes everything look flat (and has a terrible rattle, I can only watch my videos muted) but its about a 14 footer all said and done. Here's another angle

    Have so much fun Off Camber here, tried a little off camber out in the middle of nowhere. We were already at a heavy left side tip, then I dropped the drivers front tire into a rut, very carefully, but still enough of a drop to get the right side tires off the ground. I think my ass biting into the seat was what got us back down, then I very, very gently finished rolling through the obstacle. I was sketched for a few minutes after. We were out looking for a new secluded camping spot, somewhere down off the rim for when it gets cooler. Found a real nice one way up in a canyon, barely any trail at all, no signs of any recent traffic.

Not sure if you guys heard about it, but lava is headed towards Pahoa town. It's in the same district of Puna, where Iselle did most of her damage. In about a month or less, that town could be cut-off by lava. The county is currently trying to rebuild current roads that will go around the lava's path so that those residence can still come to Hilo, the main town on this side of the island.
    Check out the pic below.

    I've been keeping tabs on the advancement of the flow. It seems to have picked up a little speed in recent days. Weird how you really can't stop Mother Nature. We may be able to change things a little here and there but we really cannot stop her.

    Good riding form Judy.

    Re: pickles. Do vegans eat deep fried food? If so (and assuming you like fried food), deep fried pickles covered in panko breading may be worth a try. It is very tasty.

    Damn, I'd hate to be a Pahoa resident. Can you buy an insurance coverage for damages caused by volcanic activities and lava flow?

    Re: Hawg's Bike Thread: VOL. 5

    Since I rode like such krap on Saturday, figured I should try for a little redemption this morning. I did about 10 miles around the Anthem singletrack. It was tougher than the night ride I did a while back. Since I could see where I was going, I wanted to go faster. But there is some pretty tech terrain out there and some good climbs. But I did score two top 10 times on short .5 mile segments, and PR'd two long 1.5 &amp; 2.3 mile segments. I was not riding good by any stretch, so there is definitely room for improvement.

    I'm thinking the cinnamon crunch muffins that have been staple in my diet lately may be dragging me down. I think I may have to get back to more fresh proteins and veggies. And I've been slacking on my fruit /veggie smoothies in the mornings too.

    If you'll share the recipe, I will gladly give it a go. I happen to adore both of those food items but I never thought about eating them in unison.

    Got in 19 minutes of ride, with three kinda tough hill repeats right in the middle, less than 4 miles and only 180 ft of climbing, but it was pretty close to maximum effort.

    Big ole bowl of baby spinach leaves, a little Ranch dressing stirred in real good.
    I like to use Boar'sHead bacon, baked in the oven. When the bacon is ready, just add the hot bacon to the spinach, and go for it.

    After getting back from camping yesterday, I had to work last night. I got in this morning at 7:30 and got home at 8:30. I grabbed a little snack and then did a trainer ride. There's a new sufferfest called "half is easy". It is 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off x42. That's fun, especially after food Here's the profile. Fun, fun, fun!

    Yes it has. It's been 105 here for days on end and it will remain that way until the end of the week. Heck, it's hotter here than it is in Vegas and that's the desert.

    That was the 4 min rest in the middle and the 4 min cool down. The down spikes in the intervals were me revisiting the wisdom of pulled pork with an ice cream chaser

    Here's a few more clips from my weekend riding out in Nevada.

    The failed steep climb attempt is a section of the big ride they call Cottonwood. This steep, loose switchback section is called Satan's Escalator.

    The longer video shows typical rolling through the upper elevation desert there on the Cottonwood ride.

    VERY steep. I'd venture to say that it stays in the upper teens (maybe breaking 20% a few times) the entire climb. The problem is that it's very loose and what I recorded is only about 20-25% of it. If you were feeling strong and picked good clean lines, it's cleanable.

    This video ride talk with stand still trainer talk. Bacon and spinach talk is all fine but can we get back to tossing the salad talk.

    Actually Hawg I think that statement went over everyone's head. It may be a So. Cal. thing that only a few get.

    I'll watch your latest vids tomorrow.

    Not at all DJ, but I was really tired. I have to wonder though, how do you keep the bacon from falling off while you're doing the actual tossing?

    This is biking related in that it is what I did instead of biking over the weekend. The owner of the land we stayed on had built a trebochet to launch rocks into the river. We got to take it for a test drive. Such a simple machine that produces a dramatic result.

    Yeah, it's crazy steep in the climb section. According to my Strava it varries between 18%- 38%, most of it staying in the 20%-25% like Hawg was guessing. I did watch 007 clean it last time we rode it, anything is possible. As long as you are not an Asian that hates uphill.

    Just east of Chattanooga, TN. is the Enterprise South Industrial Park. This is home to Volkswagon North America's production facility where they build the Passat. Beautiful, nice modern facility. In this industrial park is the Enterprise South Nature Park....about 11 miles of hiking and biking trails. Susie and I went there Saturday for the first time. It was pretty good, we'll go back for sure. Smooth, fast and flowy. Hardly a rock to be seen anywhere. Very different from Monte Sano, but fun.

    I got some footage and made a little video.

    Very nice Net. I recognized a couple sections of I-24.

    Did you get a new bike? Looks like some kind of Santa Cruz.

    Did you guys hear anyone down in the river yell out "Huuuuuuwaaaa". That's what they sound like when they get nailed by a boulder. Don't ask me how I know that...

    That sucks Net and it's probably out of warranty right. So what's the scoop on when it broke. Did you crash? Do you still have all your appendages and wits about you.
