I wasn't in condition for the AES Tusayan Tussle event back in August, but doing it as a bikepack sure had its appeal. Mike and I set our sights north for an overnight ride of the 100 mile route with the option to ride up to the S. Kaibab trailhead. Little did we know, simply getting to the ride would prove to be quite the adventure all on its own!!

Good stuff, thanks for sharing. I'm not sure I understand the sniper comment...

Edit: Just read the blog post. Got it.
