That was pretty good.
I shouldn't tease Josh since he is such a superb rider off road. He'll probably use me for traction on the next ride for showing but I can't resist. Part of the video catches a mud hole on the Rubicon Ride that grabbed Josh's bike and just wouldn't let go. We were on way back from Parking Lot in Sky and were all getting a good workout. Hiding in dark water was something serious enough to stop that churning BigHorn2
I had a good day but totally forgot everyone else had not had time to acclimate to 7,000 ft + elevation after leaving sea level. It makes a difference. No wonder everyone slept well that night.
I thought I had trimmed video at 3 minutes for the mud hole, thus the title. Somehow I loaded 8 minutes full raw clip. Oh well, shows more of moderate Rubicon terrain. Other sections can seem significantly more challenging . Enjoy, I found more clips exported from camera into obscure part of laptop memory so I will try to figure how to process and post more.

Long live the internal combustion engine!
You guys make it look so easy....
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

That is a rough trail....you guys worked it great!
Nice to know there is a road worse than the buffalo hump road!
Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
Thanks for sharing the fun - love the videos! There are 2 kinds of TW riders - those who have got their TW's stuck, and those who will get their TW stuck.
My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.
Glad that Fred passed me while filming. I kept putting down my feet and was getting quite tired and sweating away! I would like trying to tackle the entire trail when its a lot cooler....and maybe use an old helmet that I don't care about sweating away in....

I passed all you Sea Level FlatLanders! Or maybe you just let me by since I knew the way home to the cold beer. Come back up and breathe some nice pure rarefied mountain air, acclimation is the answer.
B-dub is so correct, I have had my TW stuck many a time. So much more safe and relaxing now to ride with a buddy or two or six to help get unstuck. I have also turned around more than a few times while alone quoting "better safe than sorry". But not every time...
