Laugh X-Mas Party 2014!

So, to keep up in tradition of soloing many a Christmas, this cold () So-Cal day, I decided to do it again! Believe it or not, I have yet to this point to ride the Black Bear area... or... wait a minute, i meant, "Big Bear"! yeah, here in SoCal, i guess black bears are "big"

On with the show!



Just an average California hill... where you may even spot the Mooney Temple~



Fun easy trails, just what the doctor prescribed on this lonely day





And the views were quite nice too!



I'm glad i chose this direction... i think climbing that would be a little tougher... not that i wouldn't give it a go



But then the Crow wanted to have a drink...



But stopped just shy of the point of no return

Remember the climb?

Yeah! that uphill that i thought looked menacing on the picture... well... I did find another one... and got a little stuck on it



That is, after getting stuck on this alternate climb... right in this hole down below



No harm no foul... or so i thought... but then the GPS said I'm gonna have a broken fuel line!



But, all that went down is a bent shift lever... those who know the Xch, will gasp....



Shortly after, the appropriate vice and levers were located~



And the situation was completely defused and we were on our way
Upon reaching the top of the top of the trail... i realized i was pounding a black diamond... cool!



Fun has been had by all



Even found some Mendo-quality stuff!





That, surprisingly demanded more than 2-wheel drive.... does One Wheel Drive count?!



Jeep THIS!



Wooo!!! Single-track! I was missing you so much!



Into the wild~



and to the top!

Ice road truckers...

...have nothing on me!







And then, a picture for MOM! who says, there is never a picture with me in it!



So this is how i ride from Lake Arrowhead to Big Bear Lake. It got cold. and dark. and stupid-trafficy....

That's when i saw on my GPS a "shortcut" that lead me to another adventure! (Sean knows! )



"Adventure", you say,.... well... what kind of adventure is complete without a midnight creek crossing!?



Or a washout or two?



This one actually made me get off and scout the trail ahead... can you spot it? (although, better read "reconstruct the trail")



But all is well, that ends well... REWARD SHOT!



SO! HOW WAS YOUR X-MAS!?!?!

Thank you!

The bike did fantastic, even better than I expected! The bent lever was my own goof. So, that said, the bike did perfect
