Thanks, Bob. Please post more if you have 'em.

I took only jumpy, sometimes really dark video which I need to (learn to) edit. Some of it is pretty fun. Sure flattens everything, though.

Here's a few teasers for now. I'll try to post more tonight.





I had a great time yesterday, and met lotsa cool folks. 60 riders came out, and everyone went home satisifed. It was fun to show off our trails, and I must say, most of them were in pretty great shape. We've put forth lotsa hard work on those trails, and it paid off, with extra miles, and better conditions. There was a little mud, but not too bad. We even got lucky with the weather, and didnt see any rain until we were done riding. It was truly the best ride of the summer. ;)
It was also great to see so many different DOD people, new and old, come together to pull the day off with out a hitch. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Well, our luck finally came to an end, and when we got back to our cars, the rain started. We crowded under the canopies, while Sparty and the General gave away bike booty.

Milt looks a little too happy. What's he drinking?

Nobody in here will fault you for associating with "gearies". Great pics guys! Wish I could've gone. HMMMM...Next Year's less than 365 days away.

great pics guys!! Really great to see so many folks out at this gathering.

I think the majority of us had an excellent time. The Whypass trail system has come a long way for the ACM! It was great meeting some new folks from around the area. Look forward to riding with you all at Barbie Camp, and if you're heading down to the goods,(Oakridge) let me know and we'll ride.

cheers-

Hammerheads are us

I wanted to give who ever wanted it a complete tour of Whypass, so I lead the so called Hammer Head ride. Basically we did everything in the complex and had a lot of fun during the day. 15 riders in total. Enjoy the pictures.

1st set, Buttslide, 1st ever succesfull attempt at making it down goes to Eugene, but i didn't have the camera ready yet, so I got Anthony trying to make it harder. This is a good 45 degree downhill, about 300 yards long, with rut's and plenty of mud.
