Sorry we missed your bitchin' campfire this year.
Yeah that is what we thought but they really clear cut the trees around it, I think more than was necessary. Actually took trees down. looks like storm blew through the site.

I went up Mengal on my G650X with street tires with no issues.

My track is on the left side here:









If I learned nothing else from watching the Endurocross here in Las Vegas, it was "keep moving in the boulders and keep looking where you want to go."

Good advice there Tim. Just be careful with 'how easy it is' with noobs in mind. It's not easy, some will have a very difficult time. Having lots of experience helps you pick a line where your tires are going to roll. Getting through a boulder field is like eating an elephant...one bite at a time.

For DV noobs I would stress: don't go out there alone.

I just found out that while I wait for slower riders to catch up, I don't wait long enough for them to get the same break I had. Apparently it's demoralizing.

I used your pic in my RR....thanks!!

Now I don't have to get off my butt and post the photos I took someone had been asking me about
It wasn't that bad, but then we were staying at PSR and traveled W to E. Lots of 4x4 people came thru as we were headed out. Lots of shovels and a really big crew calling themselves FBlife.com . One guy said they were going thru in their 4x4's one way or another, and they were prepared to dig.

Good time, great scenery. Thanks again for the pics.
