GSA Noobs with a witness.

Saturday morning, the group of GS noobs (tbarstow, Rebarman, Capt. Barbosa, and LeDakar) plus our witness on the Transalp (Mario), headed out to Titus Canyon.






Mario gets a great shot of me.


















Rebarman before his lack of suspension beat him down for the day.



The Group at the first break


The Frenchman acting like a Frenchman.


Waiting for the rest of the n00bs.


All of the GS's in the canyon.


Mario coming down the canyon.


Rebarman in the canyon.


LeDakar trying to get comfortable standing up.


Mario messes up the salute.




















Capt. Barbossa saluting.




Mario still messing up the salute.











Me messing up trying to use the timer on my camera.























Capt. Barbossa, just after Leadfield.





Titus Canyon was a good ride for us GS n00bs. We brought along a witness to vouch for the fact that nobody put their big pig down! We did all take note that Titus Canyon was infested with non-native species, specifically the Hot Asian Chick. We were unsuccessful in capturing them on film or collecting samples to show to the Park Service officials.

When we got to the bottom of the canyon, we headed back to Stovepipe Wells for lunch. After a good meal, Mario and I were still up for more riding, so we headed out to the Chloride Cliffs.

Here's the two pics from Mario and I going to the Chloride Cliffs. Too much riding, very little stopping, and no opportunties to take pics while riding.





When the wind kicked up at 4am on Sunday, followed by the lightning show to the East, I packed up and got rolling just as the rain was making its way to the campground. I headed out to towards Badwater to miss the snow, but I did hit some rain and a heck of a lot of wind.

Watching the storm roll in from the Stovepipe Dunes.





The thunderstorm rolling in. I rolled out before it hit Stovepipe Wells.


I had a great time and I'm looking forward to the next ride!

Great pics from everyone so far.

Great Pics Tim!

Did not get a lot of action shots, but here's a few of my favorites;

Scotty's Castle after we set up camp




Was a great time of day to see it!





On our way to Titus





Tim (Tbarstow) Not too sure about this guys nOOb status



It was a great day of riding! Next year; better shocks and a rear tire with bite will make it even better

Sunday Morning,

this tent wouldn't make it;





LeDakar thinking it's about time to start packing



Trip was a blast, and the storm at the end of it made it even better

I hope everyone made it out safe, the ride home was definitely on the interesting side with the rain/snow and wind!

Thanks too Redbull for putting this together (I'll try and say hi next time), My camp mates and riding partners Capt Barbosa(Bob), LeDakar(Renaud), Tbarstow(Tim), and CaliforniaXRV(Mario). And thanks to rruger(john) for riding home with me. And of course Joel(h8chains) for doing what he does!

See you guys next year!

Those attempts were pretty sad...haha. I know I could have made it up with relative ease, just needed the right strategy!

Hi Woody.....send the video file to redbulladdict, and if you need help posting pix..email them to me.

I sense that you survived the weekend and made it home safely!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey Tim, Toby, Mario, LeDakar, and Cpt Barb....didn't have the chance to see you guys on the trail but glad you have pictures to share. We now have an idea where you pig handlers been wandering. We have 3 GS in our group too, Zing and Eduardo did well, and Bernie later on got his tempo back and ther rest of the ride went well! It was fun!

Joel

gettin it figured out

Joel,

Not sure how I only saw you for 5 minutes all weekend.
I hope your shoulder is feeling better.
I had a great time in DV and made it home with no problems.
I am loading the 2 videos of KJ to youtube right now.
I'll send the link to RB and I'll send you some of my pics.

Thanks for your help.

Woody
