    Are there a decent amount of good pics/vids of us riding through the lodge & basement?

    So far I've only seen a couple that monkeys have posted on Facebook.

    Their effectiveness doesn't seem to include bacon cake.

    This was my view of Crombie1 blowing out his 3.0" Gazzaloddi front tire and crashing into a berm on Jester. He said that he's also going to put together a video edit of his helmet cam and mine to compare the views.

    Next: An early warm-up run down Jester, I think this was run 2 of the weekend:

    Here's a vid I shot while following Idluv2, Greggah, Crombie1, DNA, Sq-Earl, and BadDNA down Jester. It looks cool in sections 2 and 3 where you can see most of us riding the berms all at the same time.



    (Also... other monkeys seen at the beginning of the video are TreeSaw, D.2, and Yelo.)

    This is T and Earls friend Jim. Nice vids. Maybe I'll see you guys in the Fall, like last year.

    In the mean time this thread needs more bacon!

    jester is a lot of fun...and you can get away with virtually any bike, which is nice. Last year I had an FS 29er. This year I had my 8" DH bike. I think you could ride a BMX bike and love it. I think ideal would be like a 4 or 6" travel SS rig. I personally hope they dedicate a little more effort to the DH side of things, as having a fully functional burke mountain would make east burke a true MTB destination.

    BigT rode Jester on her Rush (4 & 4), I rode it on my Craftworks (6 & 5).
