    Yeah, the climb was tough, as there was seldom any flat/descend section to rest legs between 4.5 to 12 miles. Downhill was pretty good, though I wish the trail was dry. Mud, slushy snow, and boulders on steep descent can get sketchy sometimes. I agree, Shuttling = Good.

    I watched your video. You almost got dropped by your dad around 1:45

    It's interesting seeing those short Palm trees growing in the forest. Never seen anything like that.

    It looked like your dropper post was completely useless. The saddle was right wherever your arze was as it appeared to have chewed right through the chamois and biting solidly into the saddle padding. I had the same thing going on too.

    Nice videos. Thanks for keeping them short - I could watch them without massive delay.

    So much so, I think this is the trail you should ride when you are out here the next time.

    One thing I thought I'd never see on here, is a KatZ riding picture with snow on the ground.

    It just feels wrong.

    Well, you know, everybody has a price.

    Special "lunch" at the Bunny Ranch is good enough price for me to endure suffering of riding in snow.

    Is that supposed to be white out/snow? I'll need special all-night dinner buffet at the Bunny Ranch to change my avatar to that one.

    Obviously I'll have my truck, so shuttling should be the obvious choice. We can save the legs for MG and that other trail (forgot the name, Bobcat maybe?)

    Hey everyone. I took a break from the pc when I was off of work. I get tired of looking at pc after 8 hours a day during work. On this break, I managed to get out and do some trail work and get in some riding.

    Thanks DJ. I got tired of riding trails with so many trees down so I picked up a saw. I've probably cut 20-30 in the last week. There's a tree out there the size of a 26 inch wheel. I think I may call a truce with that tree instead of packing in that saw and some wedges. I'm thinking of cutting a flat spot into the tree and making it so it can be ridden across so I don't risk pinching my saw bar.

    I'll see if I can remember everyone.

    Net - Sorry to see that your frame cracked. I'm afraid that is going to happen to mine soon considering it has seen so much use and it will be turning 5 this year.

    Opti - Great videos.

    Under - Glad to see your dad and yourself spending quality time together. That looks like a fun flowing trail. I would like to develop a trail like that someday.

    DJ - Great pics. What's the temp there? It's currently 18 here. It was 27 at 8 this morning.

    Katz- I thought you lived in AZ. Where did that snow come from? Glad to see you get in a big ride and put in a lot of miles.

    Rod the temp here has been in the single digits to teens. But today we are on an upswing. I went to lunch at noon and it was 15° drove 5 miles across town and it was 49° and all the snow was melting. That was an hour ago. Now I'm back at work and its 57° out.

    CRAZY!

    As I've said over and over my area of Colorado the weather can change from minute to minute.

    Nice work, Rod! Looks like it'd be kinda fun hacking up trees with the chainsaw out on the trail.

    Wow, it's warm there. This was from the morning drive in

    We warmed up to about -2F. That brought snow! Now we still have snow falling but we are back down to -6F.

    The chunk fest review...

    Opti I finally viewed your vids. and I must say they were quite marvelous.

    I like how Mrs. Opti braved the treacherous rocky conditions and joined the photo crew. And that one vid. with the camera angle from your seat post was pretty cool. Although I can see why the lads were a bit nervous going in blind. I at least had the forewarning from Mook and Hawg that nothing was going to dangle out.

    Great riding by the way.
    Oh and the Hope brakes looked like they worked like a charm.

    Katz your photos are amazing with the snow covered desert landscape.

    Nice trail work Rod.

    Katz, I'm still in shock about all that climbing you did. But glad you found the trail. I'll be happy to shuttle it with you!

    Brrrrr, heyyall.

    I was hoping for more from this thread tonight. I need a distraction. But good job Hawg and DJ on the heyyall dash description segment.

    Checking in!

    Katz - Looks like you had a good time.. pretty soon you're gonna love climbing!

    Rod - Good for you on the trail work!

    Good luck with the frigid temps everyone who is in the path of it.

    I took my hardtail out for an 8.5 mile road ride after work today which felt good. Time for me to lose some weight! Since the trails that I ride to from home are closed after sundown I need to spend more time on the road during the week.

    Oh, I can hardly stand it! The suspense s killing me! If Darth Maul pulls out his light saber and slices a leg off of Han, then heyyall will indeed be able to sneak by and take the checkered flag. But 12 parsecs, that's awfully fast.

    Glad to read that you are all still at it. Me too. Tonight we only did an abbreviated ride. About 19 miles. But I did it on my Joker, with the new platform pedals, and I still managed a 12.0 mph avg. speed.
    Not bad for a 1X10 freeride sled.

    In space, distance and time are one in the same because you can bend or fold space to save or change time. But in this case, you are correct and Hawg is WRONG. Hawg is not feeling well. He has had considerable lower back and right hip pain for a week now. Therefore, he is not thinking straight. A cloud pain has surrounded Hawg's soul. It's dark, it's consuming. It fvken hurts. What a wonderful birthday present.

    Rod, I really admire your initiative in this day and age when most people just complain, sit, wait, and expect somebody else or government to address their problems. And it's especially great coming from a guy your age.

    And good work cleaning up the trail.

    The weather was brutal last week. It's back to normal now. Was around low 60s at my house yesterday.

    Nicely done as usual Ray. Your abbreviated ride is only 2 miles shorter than the longest ride I've done.

    At the risk of humiliating myself in public, which I do anyway by simply existing so I guess there's no risk, here's something to start your Tuesday.

    There's this cute waitress at the restaurant I frequent and yesterday, I asked if she wants to go out with me. She gave me what sounded like one of those standard excuses girls use for rejecting ugly guys, "I just got out of 3-year long relationship and I want to focus on myself right now". Being an unattractive guy I am used to being told "no" by ladies, and I would have moved on right there and then if that was all she said.

    But she added "maybe later?"

    I really hate when wimmenz do this. I suppose it is possible she said this last addendum just to make sure I keep coming back to eat pasta at the restaurant. But it kinda made me hung up and finish off a large bottle of Smirnoff I bought only a couple of days ago. It's alarming when my weekly alcohol expense exceeds the weekly gas expense for my 460-powered Eph250.

    So what would OCC do if you were in my flip flops? Move on? Ask her out again later? Go to Pahrump?

    I would go to Pahrump for starters. Any reason is a good reason to go there.

    You should be able to tell by her body language, tone of voice, and the look on her face when she said "maybe later" whether or not to ask her again some time. But do continue go to that place to eat and maintain a friendly relationship with her, that's a huge plus in her eyes. In the meanwhile, perhaps she has a friend who has a friend who has a friend...

    I think you already have one foot in the door to another world.

    Katz - As Hawg said you can probably get a good gauge by body language and if she is just out of a 3 year deal then perhaps it's best to stay away for a bit because some chicks on the rebound go balastic! They can be all kinds of screwed up depending on what they are getting out of.

    You're a great guy and there's plenty of chicks who would love to be with a dude like you.. There is that cliche advice I heard back in the day that if you ask a girl out and she rejects you at least you are playing better odds than not asking anyone out at all! Keep your head up and think of it that way, you won't find yourself in the sack if you don't play the odds.

    I think you just might be right about this. The yellow tint and groovy 70's font gives the Lana pic a hint of the Partridge Family. There's a little bit of Susan in Lana and vice versa.

    Happy birthday Hawg! It sounds like you don't feel a day over 89.

    Seriously though, get those aches taken care of. Feeling bad is no good. Don't hesitate to go see the good doctor.

    That's our man! I think she might be serious. I'd keep going back and carbo load for awhile. See if she gives you any cues in the coming weeks. And if she touches you on the shoulder as she gives you the check then you're in like Flynn!

    If not, well then the Bunny Ranch beckons up the road a bit.

    Thanks guys.

    I'll keep myself open to other opportunities but I'll ask her again later if I don't find anybody else.

    When she said "maybe later?", she said it playfully like she was asking a question (hence the question mark I added) with smile on her face.

    I was gonna keep going back there regardless of what she said so that part is good. I'm half-addicted to one of the dishes they have - bowtie pasta with chicken, mushroom, red onion, and sun-dried tomatoes, sauteed in olive oil and garlic. It's tasty.

    It's actually the same place I took Hawg to after Thanksgivings day ride in Kingman.

    After maybe later...
    A stalker katz could have said.."how about now?" "what about now?" "now?" "Can we be facebook friends?" "Are you on MTBR?" all in the matter of seconds. If she turns and runs to get a restraining order, you can probably safely put her into the no category.

    A confident Katz could have said, "Great! Coffee after your shift it is". You might get some information you could use as a result.

    Sorry about the back. I recall drawing you a completely useless schematic of how to twist your back into shape. I wonder if I could find that. it would make the perfect e-gift given the circumstances.

    If the food's really good, and you would want her a friend, continue to go there, yet do not under ANY circumstance ask her out again. Waitrons, and bartenders get hit on every shift, it's part of the territory, and they rely on your tips. To avoid conflict, rarely do they date customers, but must overtly flirt to earn bigger tips. Their boyfriends / hubbies also must be secure with this reality because it's how they earn $$.

    After she learns you're not there just to hit on her, she may relax. Do not hit on any other waitress, trust me they talk constantly. Pay attention to body language, and if she's truly interested it might show. Remember, her rejection has nothing to do with you, she's getting hit on constantly, must flirt to make cash, and all are justifiably afraid of creepers.

    Pahrump sounds far less complicated, and ease up on the fermented potato harvest.

    Alright for starters this sh!t about being unattractive is a bunch of crap. I've seen photos and if you were a chick I'd be all over.... That's for another show. Seriously your not a bad looking dude and you have an awesome personality.

    With that being said: With your situation with this particular girl I'd just move along. Either she was telling the truth and she just isn't in the right mindset to start dating. Or she's too stupid to give you a chance. Either way it's not worth the headache or heartache to deal with. There's plenty of fish out there, just chill and your dream girl will land in your lap when you least expect it. Now get your arse out and ride and cut back a little on the drinking. Drowning your sorrows just leads to trouble health wise and otherwise.

    Thanks Katz. I know we've never met, but that means a lot. Like you said, in this day and age people, especially my generation, will wait for someone else to do it for them or don't even appreciate nature. I try to solve problems instead of complaining about them. My wife isn't sold yet, but she's knows me well enough that I'm going to do it anyways. She's afraid I will get hurt with the saw. I'm glad she doesn't know it's true destructive force.

    Korn, it's a lot of fun and it's a great workout too. I had to walk 2 miles or more to that spot where all of the trees are down with a saw that weighs 20-30 pounds. I was definitely sweating.

    Thanks Net! I'll have to get you a video of that trail when it's finished. You would like it. Rocky, off camber, not designed for bikes, and it has a nice view of the lake later in the trail.

    CRAZY!

    As I've said over and over my area of Colorado the weather can change from minute to minute.
    That is some crazy weather DJ. We're in the single digits today and the windchill is currently at -6. We have some crazy weather here too, but I've never driven across town and saw the weather change so dramatically. You must've driven through the warm front as it hit your town. A lot of storm fronts clash over KY so it can be beautiful where I'm riding my bike and I can see a downpour to my right or left that I'm racing back to my car.

    I took my hardtail out for an 8.5 mile road ride after work today which felt good. Time for me to lose some weight! Since the trails that I ride to from home are closed after sundown I need to spend more time on the road during the week.
    Thanks Gordon! I'm glad to see you got out there for a road ride. Why are your trails closed after dark? Mountain lions or did something happen that caused officials to close the park after sunset?

She gave me what sounded like one of those standard excuses girls use for rejecting ugly guys, "I just got out of 3-year long relationship and I want to focus on myself right now". Being an unattractive guy I am used to being told "no" by ladies, and I would have moved on right there and then if that was all she said.

    But she added "maybe later?"

    I really hate when wimmenz do this. I suppose it is possible she said this last addendum just to make sure I keep coming back to eat pasta at the restaurant. But it kinda made me hung up and finish off a large bottle of Smirnoff I bought only a couple of days ago. It's alarming when my weekly alcohol expense exceeds the weekly gas expense for my 460-powered Eph250.

    So what would OCC do if you were in my flip flops? Move on? Ask her out again later? Go to Pahrump?

    It's clear to me what you should do.
    First, got to Pahrump. This is a necessary trip, Katz. Only after you go to Pahrump will you be able to consider your situation with the waitress from a more objective perspective.

    This has been bothering me since I've heard this story on the news.

    This news story is misleading considering we do have mountain lions in this area, but they're extremely rare. Pictures have been posted in my local paper of a mountain lion near a local school.

    I agree. It almost seems like there might be a conflict of interest here. If these guys want to bag an occasional trophy all they have to do is leave the tranquilizers at the shop. That way all they have to say is "we wanted to tranquilize the animal but the tranquilizers were too far away". That way the only option is to blast away.

    Katz I don't know who told you that you were ugly, but from one dude to another, you ain't. Don't let that thinking rule your life. I guarantee that there have been numerous women interested in you over time, but your shyness mucked up your ability to pick up the cues. That happened to me a lot. My wife has pointed out several other women who were into me but I didn't pick up the cues. In my case I've always been super skinny, and it mucked up my confidence. Turns out that was only ever an issue inside my own head.
    If you're really interested in this girl, then be open and engaging, without being creepy about it, and give her time. She may have been spinning you a line, but as Flyin Dubya pointed out, they get hit on all the time, often by creeps, and have to deal with it somehow. You're a good catch, and if she doesn't see that, then she's not in possession of all the facts.

    I'll cut back on vodka and stick to beer and wine. Not sure if I can move along right away, but not going to get myself hung up on her either. Actually I'm feeling better than when I was debating whether to ask her out or not (some internal conflict).

    Yeah, be careful with the chainsaw. I'm scared of using one myself. Luckily we don't have that many trees out here so it's not really a necessity for trail maintenance.

    Katz, I vote for Pahrump! And on the way back we can ride down "three mile smile" in Cottonwood, with our three mile smiles!

    My wife tells me all the time that she never liked Asians before me. And she does point out when chics flirt with me and I have no clue. I'm hopeless...

    But you could be the rebound dude for the waitress. Lots of crazy meaningless sex and then she dumps you and moves on. I see nothing wrong with that. You may want to toss that suggestion out to her next time you are eating there. She might just bite. Funny definitely goes a long way.

    Thanks Understater.

    I'm a self-deprecating guy so when I say I'm ugly, I'm just saying I'm just an average OK-looking guy. And indeed I am terrible at picking up the cues.

    As I said in previous posts, I like the food at the restaurant so I'll see her when I go eat there. I'll just be casual - if it goes somewhere, great. If not, honestly I'm OK with that at this point.

    Nope, never heard of him. Apparently my first comment in his fat bike thread sent him off the edge. Seriously! The dude is a few cans short of a six pack. If the mods don't catch on to his banter nothing will get their attention.

    Awww, c'mon.

    They HAVE to be SO used to people who CAPITALIZE THINGS TO MAKE SURE YOU READ THEM, that they would NEVER look TWICE, even though it seems to be one of the most common SYMPTOMS of MENTAL ILLNESS observable over the internet.

    I'm sure if we went to Mt. Charleston I could find you some more of that snow you liked riding in...

    Katz, I've been thinking about the comments above. I think I can help. Here are a few tips I put together for you.

    That's a great point. Katz has multiple cars & trucks, owns a huge chunk of land set in a peaceful environment, and is the owner/operator of a successful business. Damn, he's even sounding good to me!

    Katz, girls are looking for security. They will find it with you. It's them who will be the lucky one so keep your head up.

    I was gonna keep going back there regardless of what she said so that part is good. I'm half-addicted to one of the dishes they have - bowtie pasta with chicken, mushroom, red onion, and sun-dried tomatoes, sauteed in olive oil and garlic. It's tasty.

    It's actually the same place I took Hawg to after Thanksgivings day ride in Kingman.
    Oh really?! Was she there that day when we went? Good food there, I agree.

    Katz I don't mean to sound insensitive to your situation but right now all I care about is where is this fine food establishment. << drooling as I type.

    Either that, or they just accidentally hit the CAPS key and are not in the habit of checking what they type before they hit 'post'.
    Or, in this case, I think it's another 'dum-dum' phenom. This is, after all, nick-named 'eMpTyBeeR..........

    Happy birthday Hawg, hope you're feeling better soon.

    Katz, go back to the restaurant and order some nice dinner from her, only eat about half as you don't want a full belly but you do want some food in there in case it's a while till you get to eat again. Get up, go grab her by the hair, drag her out the back by the dumpsters, and give it to her but good. My take on the situation is that this is what she wants, really wants, and is just too shy and embarrassed to ask for. She'll probably only resist and fight back for 20-30 minutes, then she'll be like putty in your hands, she'll bend to your every whim. She'll end up asking you back to her place, where things will really heat up, you probably won't get to eat until morning, you may want to pre-hydrate too.

    Or.

    Hmmmm.

    Good luck, and go get her, tiger.

    The canceled school here for tomorrow. Something about -40F to -50F wind chills raised concerns. Meh, that's just winter starting to appear. By my calendar, we are essentially 1/6 of the way through winter with the best parts yet to come.

    Pick a day between tomorrow and Saturday. We can either shuttle Bootleg or go riding Cottonwood.

    The place is called The Garlic Clove, and the dish is called "Chef's favorite". I found a pic on yelp.com, though it's missing grated Parmesan for some reason. You can order it with either chicken or shrimp.

    Excellent work. Rewarding your reward

    Glad you enjoyed the video. I'm expecting a full report on its efficacy once katz watches and takes some notes. He'll probably want to wear running shorts, knee high socks, sandals and a polo shirt when he walks around trying the lines. Practice makes perfect after all.

    I feel exactly the same way. That's why I posted this pic. I think it explains the situation better than the story we were fed by the news crew. They made the cat seem like Godzilla and it was going to terrorize the town. How do people in Florida and Cali live with these animals? We are so afraid of them here, they must be shot on site.

    Mookie, I couldn't agree more. If they received this call, you would think a tranquilizer gun would be mandatory so they could relocate the animal.

    Happy belated b-day Hawg. I hope you feel better.

    Mookie, I couldn't agree more. If they received this call, you would think a tranquilizer gun would be mandatory so they could relocate the animal.

    Happy belated b-day Hawg. I hope you feel better.
    I, fortunately, or unfortunately, have been privy to the somewhat confidential data regarding the tranquilizing and relocation attempts with predators in my area.

    I have to report that ALL of the attempts ended in failure, and most of the time the predator suffered a great deal more before eventually being euthanized, than if it had just been euthanized right at the start.

    what I find very toubling are the smiles, when they occur, on the faces of those officials when they have killed one.

    This looks bad....it makes our entire species look small and mean-spirited and petty.

    Taking the life of an apex predator does nobody any honors. it should be a thing to do with the greatest somberness, and humility.

    But as many of us see, today, humility is not a virtue, its' a weakness, and when the 'strong' torture and kill the weak and defenseless our culture rejoices.

    Such pics as that doofus in the Norcal forum posted make me ashamed to be a human.

    Ray, our species is exactly that: small, mean spirited, petty, prejudice, and other horrible things. We harm/kill each other so commonly anymore, that it is no longer shocking.

    speaking about fat bikes... can't wait to stop riding mine... means it's summer and dh has started. well today it's -14c out, though could be worse. the inlaws are experiencing -40c, so it's not to bad. the river is freezing up nicely, time to stud the fatty.

    I don't know, Ray. That's a bit like looking at Ferguson rioters and lumping all blacks in the same category IMO. I like to look at people on more individual basis.

    No questions humans exhibit petty natures you speak of, but many realize that and try our best to restrain ourselves. None of us really had choice being born as humans, we just happened to be - no sense being ashamed of it.

    I don't always agree with you, but you seem like a really nice decent guy. You should be proud of who you are.

    I bet there is a reason you like to live out there in the high desert, Katz, and it ain't because you love the close proximity of other humans.

    It only takes a few doofi to make you want to surround yerself with lots of extra space....so I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about.

    90%+ of the people I know I am just fine with....it's ones who look forward to the next torture opportunity that I have a problem with.

    I only had an hour so I had to take a 7 mile ride. It was extremely wet and cold, but it was summer if you're Heyyall, which is the upper 20s or low 30s. I also got to ride New Year's Day, but no pics. Enjoy!

    I started with this climb for 1/2 a mile or so.

    This is why you shouldn't install water bars in the trails. Notice how it has filled and the water carrying the sediment will just move down the hill. There's no substitute for correctly designed trails. I took this so I can try and bring this issue up at my next meeting with land managers.

    We have some snow today Mook. The first pic was supposed to have shown how wet the leaves and the trail was, but it didn't turn out well. I slipped off of every rock and root that I hit that day, which were off camber.


    Singlesprocket, I'm glad to see you're out there having some fun. Better get those tires studded for some ice riding.

    Fair enough. That's a part of the reason.

    I never really cared for big cities with bunch of buildings, even if there weren't any other humans around, and I like being surrounded by nature, and scorching hot dry climate. AZ desert fits the bill.

    I had to crank up the heater in my house just looking at the pics. You captured the wet & coldness through the lens very well.

    This really reminds me of my former days riding around Seattle in the winter. Wet leaves and slip sliding away down the trail on a damp overcast day.

She gave me what sounded like one of those standard excuses girls use for rejecting ugly guys, "I just got out of 3-year long relationship and I want to focus on myself right now". Being an unattractive guy I am used to being told "no" by ladies, and I would have moved on right there and then if that was all she said.

    But she added "maybe later?"

    I really hate when wimmenz do this. I suppose it is possible she said this last addendum just to make sure I keep coming back to eat pasta at the restaurant. But it kinda made me hung up and finish off a large bottle of Smirnoff I bought only a couple of days ago. It's alarming when my weekly alcohol expense exceeds the weekly gas expense for my 460-powered Eph250.

    So what would OCC do if you were in my flip flops? Move on? Ask her out again later? Go to Pahrump?

    Random response here, give her a card with a "promised good time" in a non-creepy way. Something like "this is good for a dinner at your choice with no strings attached" "Redeemable whenever you want or need a break from life". This lets her know you are a good guy and care about her as a person. You also let her know the door is open but you are not trying to pull her in. If she does take you up on it you get to see her in a different light, and she gets to see you as well (this might not be good, but it is worth the risk).

    Good luck

    This sounds like good advice.....of course, they only have 2 restaurants in town, and she works at one of them.

    I'd say that he could wait for some of his OC riding buddies to come around, maybe some with their wives/girlfriends, maybe even a kid or two, and theninvite her out for a BBQ.
    Show her how normal and stable he is.

    That counts for a lot in the desert.

    It is amazing how adaptable people are to temperatures. Extreme cold to extreme heat. What seems to give first is people's willingness to continue the routine and perhaps a desire for different stimuli. We are taking a trip back to SC for spring break and I'm sure we will find what locally will be chilly mornings to be like life in Hawaii.

    Until then, this is our short term outlook. Fat biking is looking good!

    I'm wondering, US, how is night riding tolerated/allowed where you are?
    Here, a lot of the parks/preserves are technically closed at sundown, but lots of people still ride the trails there after dark. In some ways, they are actually more fun to ride at night.

    It depends on the area Ray. My local riding spot here in Auckland is Woodhill Forest, which is privately owned forestry land. The bike park operators have a license to run their business there, along with other areas designated for motorbikes, quads, 4wds, horses, and hunting. All recreational activities come secondary to forestry operations, and we have just lost a whole bunch of trails to clear felling. But apparently the bike park guys have been allocated two new blocks of land adjacent to the current park to develop new trails. The gates shut at 5pm (I think) but for the bike park at least, Wednesday night is late night and the gates shut at 10pm. So there is always a fairly big crowd there on Wednesdays. Nearby is another forest with a clay base and much more of a raw style of trail. Once again it's on forestry land, but I'm not really sure who administers it. Since the trail head is basically just the side of the road, it isn't ay hassle to go in at night. I don't know if it's strictly legal, but no-one is going to care or try to stop you.
    Down in Rotorua where the best riding is, I don't think anyone cares at all if you go in after dusk, so you can do as you wish.

    I hear you on the night riding. For most of the year, between work and kids, and due to the fact that I have a 40 minute drive to any riding spot I only get out on Wednesday nights. I do 90% of my riding at night.

    That's too bad. I started night riding over 20 years ago, when we would jury-rig our own lights by taking a c-battery-powered Cateye bar light, and installing a different reflector along with a massive, whopping, 6 watt bulb. Man, we were the Kings of the Night! I think they put out maybe 200 lumens, and our water-bottle-batteries weighed 2 to 3 lb.s. Plus, we usually carried an extra battery in our packs. Lots of extra resistance training.

    Now, with a max of 1700 very bright lumens on the bar, and another 800 lumen spot on my helmet, I really got more light than I'll ever need. And the batteries, they weigh nothin' compared to those lead-acid bricks of yesteryear. Plus, these new LED lights are so sturdy, and have a bulb life that's basically a lifetime worth, night-riding is fairly irresistable to me.

    Technically, many of the trails we ride at night are closed, but practically speaking, the Parks Dept. does not have the budget to pay rangers the overtime to enforce an infraction that is minor in impact, at best.

    I've been a bit out of touch with the OC and this thread for the last couple of days. As you all know I've been dealing with someone with a couple cans short of a six pack. A brief catch up was in order.

    This news story is misleading considering we do have mountain lions in this area, but they're extremely rare. Pictures have been posted in my local paper of a mountain lion near a local school.

    Wildlife officials kill mountain lion found in Bourbon Co.
    Yes this is a tragic case of trigger happy power tripping egotistical jackasses.

    Another asshat. That is a HUGE mountain lion and IMO even more so a shame to kill it. The big old tom cat made it to a ripe old age only to be gunned down by an asinine human. Photo below.

    Thanks Katz, I guess I have a knack for finding every knick knack yak yak yahoo on this site and exposing them.

Get up, go grab her by the hair, drag her out the back by the dumpsters, and give it to her but good. My take on the situation is that this is what she wants, really wants, and is just too shy and embarrassed to ask for. She'll probably only resist and fight back for 20-30 minutes, then she'll be like putty in your hands, she'll bend to your every whim. She'll end up asking you back to her place, where things will really heat up, you probably won't get to eat until morning, you may want to pre-hydrate too.

    Or.

Once you're in the shower and Bubba approaches, you'll probably only resist and fight back for 20-30 minutes, then you'll be like putty in his hands, he'll bend your to his every whim. He'll end up asking you back to his place, where things will really heat up, you probably won't get to eat until morning, you may want to pre-hydrate too.

    Hmmmm.

    Good luck, and go get her, tiger.
    All I can say here Opti. is.... Nice work!

    Very cool SS. I've studded motorcycle tires before just like that. It's amazing the grip you get with them.

    I started with this climb for 1/2 a mile or so.

    This is why you shouldn't install water bars in the trails. Notice how it has filled and the water carrying the sediment will just move down the hill. There's no substitute for correctly designed trails. I took this so I can try and bring this issue up at my next meeting with land managers.

    Way to go Rod. I'm liking the photos it reminds me of my short stint back east.

    So they do have pre-drilled holes? Never heard of that type. We just screwed the studs directly into the knobs. Of course those were motorcycle tires.

    I agree 100% although the extreme temps Katz, Opti and 007 face daily might be a bit much for my wimpy self.

    Awesome photos SS, glad to see you out having fun in the extreme cold temps.

    Show her how normal and stable he is.

    That counts for a lot in the desert.
    Hey now, we have 3 restaurants and a McDonald's! Get it straight Supposedly the restaurant at Hualapai resort is nice, but I haven't been there.

    BBQ idea sounds good....maybe if she opens up to me a little down the road. She seems like a wonderful person but I don't know her beyond the customer-waitress interactions. I just wanted to take her out for coffee so we could talk a little.

    So I'm curious, what was the golden pickup line you used on your wife?

    Maybe.

    Uh oh, what if Bubba IS King Arthur???
    You're making me start leaning towards Pahrump idea.

    I got in another ride (road) today but so much for my hopes to ride every other day of 2015. Big Red is officially jealous now since TGM has 2 rides to her one so far for 2015. I will make it up to her this weekend out in the Mojave Desert.

    8.28 miles
    363' elevation gain
    38:38 ride time

    Tootles.

    Yes it is refreshing for sure.

    My doctor said, if I can just keep my nose out of those threads I should recover just fine.

    It seems that DJ's post count and fearsome rep acts as a red rag to a certain kind of young bull.

    For some reason I think this is a great story. Some people meet on blind dates, others at bars/parties, and nowadays others meet through online dating sites. We've heard this all before. But you met in golf class - that's unique and classic.

    I can imagine some pickup lines that could be used in this situation but this is a family site.
