Ride 090721

Dustin and I rode with Stuart today we rode out of Blair range up old buck to severed dick. This is the only pic I got of Stuart, as he is to fast to get in front of him to get a good shot.

Dustin and me swapped bikes at the top of Severed Dick
His Giant Trance was nice It descended really well, he really liked the Hustler. It took us a few minutes to get used to each others rig.

Hyped to Go

I haven't posted for a few days I have been getting ready for this trip. We are leaving tomorrow for a float plane shuttle in the south Chilcotin from Tyaughton lake to Warner Lake by float plane http://www.tyaxair.com/ then ride out 40K. We did the spruce lake trip last year but this year we are hoping to get into Warner lake which is higher elevation and a longer ride out, there are 12 of us going so should prove interesting we are all hyped so check back in a few days to see the pics and tales.
