Wallowing in the mud of life. Or, Moab rocks.

Mix one cool campsite. One of most mellow ass dogs I've ever seen in my life; until he sees folks getting ready to ride. One Moab riding virgin. You get one good old time.

Who the hell tags a building in the middle of nowhere?


The Moab virgin seems to be liking things.


Well, ok, not nowhere. A few folks are out and about.


The scrubmobile gained a tad bit more much needed frontal clearance this trip.


Mellow gold. Playtime on some slabs near camp.


My last trip entailed arduous hotel conditions. This mistake was not to be repeated.


But that isn't the stuff ya'll are here to read/see about, are you?


You want to see riding pictures.



And bike porn images.

And scenes of utter carnage.


Followed by redemption.


And lost parts photo series shots.


Bright plumeage of bikes.


Challenging lines.



Beautiful scenery.


Images of solitude.


Guys showing their tender, flowery sides.


It's the little details that can make or break a trip.

Like not having a spare hanger for a new bike yet.


Or starting to break through a cable mid-ride.


But at least having nice views helps a bit.


And proper hydration is key.


It all helps one to retain a sense of balance.





The easiest going seem to have the ability to wallow in the joys of living; not a bad way to be.

Good stuff. I'm not an IPA fan at all, and much prefer Black Butte Porter from Deschutes. But that particular riding buddies truck (with attached beer cooler) was the one at the bottom of Portal, so I made do.

My car = loaded with porters, stouts, scotch ales, and brwon ales. His truck = loaded with IPA and the like. It works.

I'm the same way - - Black Butte, Obsidian Stout, Buzzsaw Brown or Rogue Dead Guy. My son is the hop-head of the bunch. Inversion is the only IPA that I actuially found myself liking - -but I've gotta be real hot and wrung out to enjoy it.

I'm digging the cool dog who visited for one of the pictures! What could be more fun than a strong dog who runs alongside for these wilderness expeditions?!

Wilderness? Around Moab? Hee! That's funny!

Aside: the dog is Named Randall, and he kicks ass.

I especially like the touron traffic jam shot on Slickrock. That's a fun climb, when it's not clogged with people walking. That must have felt like riding in NYC compared to your other "off the beaten track" routes.
Yep. We did a short/oddball out and back on slickrock, then went out to play in Tusher with Tim. I'll assume you'll be meeting up with him while out? New stuff is very, very good.

Certainly not what I'd call a bad ride. Still not sure if we'll make it out for the Fest or not. A work in progress.

Oh, that guy. I just found him up there, abiding. It wasn't a bad spot to have a beer, either. I'm not much the White Russian fan.

Great pics, excellent captioning. I am jealous because apparently my dog went to Moab without telling me:
