That little bit at 1:15 was amazingly energy sucking. Probably 11,000 feet high there, paddling and pushing over that rock, saw gray spots before my eyes pretty fast. It is a familiar sensation

That was a really fun trip. Gotta keep doing this stuff while I still can

The trail leading to that spot on top is rooty, rocky, gnarly and steep, probably weeds a lot of them out before getting up top! A couple of riding buddies said F this and turned around halfway up.

The ride down through the wet woods after the mountain top was epic. Light rain and lots of thunder. It was surreal. Paid for it later though, a full on high country cold mountain rain dumped on us. Had wet weather pullover gear, but it was still shiver city

there were a few scenes in there well above my skill level I'd love to take a trip like that but some of that rocky crap at 1:30 would have had me looking for a go-round...

Funny, the gnarly stuff does not bother me, but the fast riding in the wet woods starting 2 minutes in is pucker city, knowing being off line and hitting a wet tree at speed would suck. The beginning footage is my friend Josh, who is younger, faster and a just plain better rider than me by the way. I can be seen repositioning my bike and paddling like a spastic duck at the 2:45 mark. Josh is on the oldest bike ('01 CR250) that is not really meant for gnarly riding, and of course he smokes us all except for Scott, who is the guy in front of him at the beginning.

While Josh is an "A" level rider, Scott is a trials guy and at the elite AA level. To give you an idea, Scott entered a pro endurocross and finished mid pack. The dude rarely puts a foot down, and to add salt to the wound, had a double knee replacement surgery a few months after riding in this video. His knees were wrecked, and he still kicks my ass and rides like that. Both are dirt bike riding Gods to me, a mid pack "B" rider

Was not going to do a video this time around as I have lots of that area and did not even bring my helmet cam, but my buddies pestered me into it. Glad I did, we rode some new trails and what the Hell. I like having the videos.

For gnarly rock riding, allow me to refer you to my 5 Miles of Hell video. Interesting factoid about this one, note the incredibly tall guy who is 1st visible at 1:45. He is Rik Smits, retired center who played for the Indiana Pacers all through the 90s, and who is 7'4" tall. Rik is also an "A" level rider
