    pics from Mililani ride

    Well this beautiful cool morning at 0700 my friends Dan and Devin met me at the Costco parking lot for the Sunday morning ride led by Jimmy. It was my farewell ride here on Oahu as I fly out to kuwaiit next Saturday night for some time in Iraq.

    Here Rob contemplates the route--through the Californ-aye-a grass we will go.


    Allison and Dan at an overlook point. There are several; they all have nicknames but this is the first time I've rode these trails with good "guides" and only the 3d time on the Mililani trail system. Maybe I'll get to know 'em when I return on '05.
    One can see Pearl Harbor and jets taking off from Honolulu International from this vantage point.





    Devin pushes





    Everyone shares the Mililani "illegal" trail system w/no problems. The motobikes were out in force.


    Ride leader Jimmy, and Rob droppin' in.


    Jimmy begs calories from Allison.


    Dan and Rob discuss the fine points of a freeride type downhill suitable enough for the RedBull Rampage.


    3 Amigos at the overlook. 60% of team Cruzin 4 a Bruzin. I'm the cauc overweight Irish bastidge in the middle. I'll fix that weight issue in Iraq.


    So yeah these are mainly a bunch of pics that don't have many bikes or neat trails
    pictured in 'em. But I am a novice mainly w/the camera deal. And these are my friends and they made sure i had a great send off ride. This is the most fun I've had on the mountain bike here---I was blasting down and over stuff that has been giving me fits---this texas flatlander finally figured out that lowering the saddle an inch or two would be a good idea--lol--now I'm outta here 4 a year. Wished I'd figured it out sooner.

    Great day, great folks, great ride.
    Thanks for looking.

    I used to have another vantage point of those planes. They used to fly a few hundred feet over my house when I lived in base housing near Barber's Point. It's kind of sad when you get used to the sound of jets overhead. I'd be talking on the phone, a plane would fly over and it'd bother the person on the end of the line more than me.

    Have a good deployment.

    Good to see you are getting some local flavor. Many of the trails I ride here are illegal motorcycle trails also, hopefully someday we can work together, or at least preserve what they have created.

    Personally I think you'll start missing the jungle riding when you're back in Texas.

    Hope you get a chance to check in to MTBR while you are on the otherside of the globe.

    Leaving so soon......

    I was hoping you would still be around later this year. My wife and I were planning to visit Oaha again and check out more of the trails. At least now I know that it is possible to ride Milliani fron the Costco parking lot.

    I wish you well in Iraq and pray you have a safe deployment.

    If there is any sort of lesson in this, be damn careful of the pills you take. I had no idea why I was replying to thes 12 year old posts. I sort of blame iPads...
    Sorry
