    The first time at Moab doing Hells Revenge with you guys scared the .... out of me and that was near the beginning of the ride. Now it seems pretty tame.
    The 52 second mark of the video reminds be of some of the areas on Slick Rock.
    The last time I was at Moab, I met an expert rider and he said I should try Wipe Out Hill. Just ride down it he said.
    i think I would rather try going up it.
    I have seen a group of motorcycles ride down it and they made it look easy - Mind over Matter.
    I have also sat at the bottom of the hill pondering the best route up - then Admiral brings me back to reality.

    Well, hell, how hard could that be? It's clearly marked with white paint!

    There sure are lots of good folks attending this year. With thirty some odd attendees (well, maybe not everyone is odd) it may be hard to visit & ride with new and old friends. Going to be epic no matter what.
    Another nice day again.
    The siren song of the slickrock is calling.

    Slickrock is also whispering to ride responsibly, stay on trails and no free-riding through the desert.

    Took a while to find them but hit Dead Cow and the Tubes today. Mary's Trail had a very steep slick rock entrance similar to launching pad on the Spike so we passed on it. Lots and Lots of Sand..

    I just watched a YouTube video of Mary's trail and it is awesome. I hope the MOAB meetup can get out there on the TW's and get some video. That's exactly the kind of trail riding, scenery, I want to go to Moab for.

    Last minute reminder to first time attendees on available infrastructure:

    Dry Camp- Has fire ring and a pit toilet about half mile away. We are on our own, strive for self-reliance in all respects.


    Archview Campground- Gas, ice, mini-store, showers may be rented. A little garbage can be gotten rid of if buying gas.

    Arches and Canyonlands National Parks- Water, plumbed rest rooms, guide books, garbage disposal at Visitors Centers.

    City of Moab- Lodging, stores, restaurants, fuel, waste disposal, Yamaha shop but all are a twenty minute ride away.

    XXXXXXXX
    8pm today. Still nice after sun goes down, bit of snow lingers in the La Sals. If riding getting time to head back to camp.Isky.jpg

    Finalizing Moab preparations.

    Getting the bikes ready. All oil changes done. Purple's Bee has new front tire and a smaller rack for this trip. Took some hammering to get the old rack to fit. Just had to use the correct hammer for the job.


    The after ride "medicine" is being brewed as well.

    Figured I might as well have redundancy so loaded up two today as a test. Little did I know redundancy could also mean two suddenly leaking petcocks.
