draw cord and some use light suspenders. It's pretty common in the mountaineering world. trouble is the mountaineering version is usually built for 40 below zero, and I want a highly compressible 3 season setup.

That looks awesome! How do you like it so far?? If I get one I'm going to get the little trailer thingy too, so I can bring in enough beer for the overnight camping......

Congrats!

I've had it for a while. Bought it a little early for my grandkid. Couldn't stand it
it was so cute. She can barely reach the pedals so I got her one of these
until she gets a little taller.

Frog won't get all the bikes, just the best one. i plan to take one in the top ten. I'm going to borrow A1's moped to enter, and I'm going to ambush the dude on the new ADV big bore and then win big!
Good idea! Theoretically I should end up with my own bike and a few rich, cocky, mediocre riders will donate theirs for the greater good.

This is a real possibility actually. I have to see how many hundreds of emails I have waiting for me in the morning though.... I've tried to unplug over the holidays so not sure what it looks like.

I've posted a land use request for north lake powell.


http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...0#post23152550

For anyone who knows the area and feels like helping out, please write in. Also, if you were around pre-94, a lot of this area had further trails that were closed with the national monument. it would actually be great to see some of these opened back up particularly on the far eastern side of the road on the north shore of Lake Powell.

thanks!

Hey GISkev,

Look familiar? Turns out there's a 98 degree hot spring right by the bridge we crossed. We missed out, should have camped here.




Ho Chi Min to the hot springs


The pool.

Well I may need to come down to ride for a weekend if the snow doesn't start piling up! Could you ride some Sat/Sun combo? Any mountain biking to keep my grrrrrrl entertained or is it too soft for a pedal bike?

70 mile continuous single track (Black Canyon Trail) that is awesome and all non motorized.

My schedule goes through February 15 now, only weekend is the 8,9.

I wouldn't change any plans for your one free time slot, but that might be workable if your grrrrrrl wanted someone to hike around with and my grrrrl would be ok w/ trading off with a kid backpack while the boyz were out with their toys... an epic pow storm could change my thinking, but hey...
