    After Work GMR with Hillbasher (how do I get talked into these things?)

    Well I somehow got talked into riding up GMR after work. Not sure how Hillbasher got me up there but we were there ha ha! I didn't take the recorder figuring we wouldn't see many others, wrong! Heck, I think we saw more familiar faces than on the weekends. Well, Matt and his crew of coworkers. Ended up riding part of the way with the crew as they turned off at Newman's Point while Hillbasher and I rolled on up to the landing above the shack. Matt and one of his buddies had already been to the shack but found it in their legs to head up once again with his crew. Now I know, always be prepared with the recorder ha ha!

    I must say, after seeming to end up on night shifts at work over several years, this had to be my first after work evening ride since way back in about 2006 'ish. Felt good. Body is much warmer and looser than after waking from a deep sleep for a ride after a night at work. Even after a few injuries from battling giant spiders, I felt pretty good! ;-)

    More pics in blog if interested

    Had a great time, and meeting up with Matt and friends made it all the more worth while. Do me a favor and send me that last pic. Beginning to think Annette's bears were photo shopped into that video. LOL

    You big cry baby Beanz - "My toe is broken, my ass hurts, the spider nearly killed me" and two days later you're riding up GMR.
    Glad everything is OK, bro.
    Old people are keen to give good advice because of their inability to give bad example.

    Blame it on me JImmy. The night before, Annette saw some big hairy animals at the first saddle, (no , not Beanz), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4h48...layer_embedded, so I needed Beanz to come along up GMR with me to act as bait,err, uhhh, I mean as a bodyguard.

    I figured there was a reason you stayed ahead 2 bike lengths the entire ride.

    LOL. When it comes to bears, you don't have to be fast, you just can't be the slowest!
    If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!

    So Beanz is more delicious looking?

    Saw a family of 4 bears last week in Alaska and my 9 yr old son asks the bus driver if we can get out (they're maybe 20 feet away).

    mmmmm, no. Siddown.
