Alas, no video this time.
The hill was on a trail I have never been on before, and neither have very many other people, as it was hardly "burned in" at all, and we came to a spot where I couldn't sniff out the trail any longer so we had to back-track. It wasn't really much of a hill but there was no place to get a run at it and it was fairly steep and rocky. Imagine that, a steep & rocky hill............up here. Go figure. Anywho, Chris was running one of those "Terrorflex" sneakers on the back, and as far as I'm concerned, they suck in the rocks unless you have about 3psi in it. 3 tries for Chris (but he was kind of beat at this point), 1 try for moi (but I wasn't beat to death). Chris was a good sport about the whole thing.
As for the "unknown" trail; I absolutely MUST connect this thing to the other end. (for reasons all of you know, I ain't sayin' exactly where this trail is, just that it's in West Milford)

Looks like I'm going riding today!!! (I think)

Chris

Great ride today, you promised rocks and you sure delivered.

Also many thanks for showing how little grip there was in places by spectacularly high siding into a face plant, glad you didn't do too much damage.

Thanks for coming up Jezza! Too bad you had to leave early, you missed the most "interesting" part of the ride.

Looks to be an OK day tomorrow.

Anybody up for a ride??

Yeah!
I just got home at 4:30!!!! I was checking out some more "interesting" stuff up above on the B.B.V. section and then I was trying to get to the overlook above Greenwood Lake on a hiking path, it was going swimmingly right until I came upon an impossible uphill rock section. *sigh* Turn around and head back.
Thanks for going out today. I'm sure we'll ride again soon.

Chris
