Next on my list. Looking at rope rescue high and low angle. Full body harnesses 150+ foot of line, ascending and descending equipment.

Should I put a winch on my bike?

If I crash and unable to walk out or climb up, yes a quick shelter. If helps far away or unable to come, and or communications not working.

Its great that in that big bad area of the desert he's in he seems to have found the only rock, pole or tree to attach that winch to.

And we all know that should we get stuck going up that little ant hill, we would just back up a bit and hit it again ATGATT.

Grinchy, that winch must be what's in your pants all the time. I thought you were just glad to be riding.

+1 on the life straw. I carry one now.
What's in your backpack?
I wish I'd had one on my Verplank adventure. The water in Mill Creek was nasty.

Water purification tablets. Cheaper, smaller and you can take the water with ya.

The Life Straw is akin to felching butt mud.

Yep, did the snow ride that left Jimmy's bike on the mountain and went out last Wednesday with Noel, will be up in the SNF next weekend and will probably do the last two days of Warped. Just don't feel the need to post when I ride and I never take pics anyways.

Make that a SAT phone, a cellphone is useless in most backcountry areas.
