    There is not enough rep in this universe... of course, I must spread some before giving it to 'squeeb. :rant:

    Mi gusta. Well played.


    Dude. It was just an everyday Colorado shuttle run. And us CO downhillers always keep our stashes on the DL. ;)

    I can tell you this, though: I got stung by a bee. :D



    EDIt: mayhaps this will help put the pieces of Pesqueeb's sloppy narrative together?

    After a couple of scenes like these I wasn't so sure you'd be thanking any of us for that ride!

    We saw this pretty often...

    Just wait until the next one... when we do a ride with a BIG climb in it.

    :D

    This. Still.

    You know... I was just looking at this on a map this morning... Intredasting. Although may I suggest up Peak 9 to Wheeler Pass, then descending to the junction with Colorado Trail back up and over to Miner's Creek and finish on the Peaks trail either to Breck or Frisco. You know, AFTER riding CT from Kenosha to Breck...

    It aged me.



    Shuttle? Psssssh. Think Kenosh > Georgia > Breck > Peak 9 > Wheeler > CT > Miner's Creek > Gold Hill > French Gulch > Jefferson Creek > Kenosh


    You know, a 'lollipop'.

    No, that is not a truck. It is a malformed station wagon.
