Good gear...

My FirstGear Kilimanjaro jacket is probably 13 years old. Aerostich Darien pants about 11 years old. Alpinestars Web GoreTex boots at least 10 years.

Helmets and gloves get used up faster.

Just packing up for a little trip and thought that was interesting enough to post.

A Thankless Job

It is good to remember the fun things in life. It is nice to be able to share those things with others. 

If they can't be there, at least they can watch a video. 
No, the cool air, cold rain, flying mud, and overall excitement isn't the same as being there. At least you can share the sights. 

It takes a little work to capture, view, and decide what is shared.
-just a little work. 

Here I am preforming my camera operating duties while out in the woods having fun.

Skate Punks

Feeling a bit nostalgic for the old skate-punk days I took LMR and the Misfit to the park. 

The secret skate park.
Late at night. 

And yes, the whole thing was caught on video.

A Wet One

We ride the trails in the Tahuya State Forest all year. It does get a little wet in the "winter." How wet? Well, this is a typical post-ride ritual...

White Rim Road (Shafer Canyon)

After all the tarmac, it was nice to find a bit of dirt to ride in Utah.

I meet a 3 KLR riders who had also travelled from the Pacific Northwest to Southern Utah. Two on KLR650s and one travelled from Oregon on an old KLR250. Once on the dirt I was jealous of my KLR's younger, lighter 250-er cousin.

 I'm posting part 4 of the 6 part "monotonous helmet cam along the canyon" video. -I figure that I won't subject you to a 6 minute helmet-cam-iMovie-soundtrack video. If you want more, it is there for you.
