Met up with Danoinred, Bad Andy, and PBR Me! at Deer Creek this morning for a FIFO ride. Must have gotten some rain as Magic Dirt was present! The conditions and the company couldn't have been any better. Everything is so lush and the humidiity hanging in the air made it fell like we were in a rain forest. Great times fo sure!!





Darn shuttlers!









Thanks for looking. Hope everyone has a great day!

Yes - it POURED for a short while last evening down this way. Glad you guys got out and got some tacky goodness!

Maybe the best FIFO - for you!
I don't even remember you taking that pic!!
Still a great morning even if I thought I may toss my cookies.
Guess 2 eggs and 2 pancakes for dinner last night wasn't enough fuel!
Great pix.

PS - the company prolly would have been better if SS was there. Surprised he didn't inform you of that?!

What no pic of my flat tire! ;)

Great ride for sure! I can't believe I don't ride there more as I'm only 15 min. Away!! That's gonna change!

Which part flatted you? I seem to get a flat at DC more often than ANY other park. Mine always comes on the descent from RM on the final rocky switchback before you descend to the PM intersection...

Nice pics! I'm 5 min away, would you mind if I joined you next FIFO outing?

I was there last night and got caught in that storm. Lightning was striking everywhere and the rain was heavy for a while. I was thinking how awesome conditions would likely be this morning and how I wish I was off work!

BTW - yes, DWF - we went CW on both loops!

:thumbsup:

I'd never done CW on PM before my last FIFO there - last (early fall?)
I had usually gone all the way up the gut, CW on RM, then CCW on PM.
I like PBRs route - CW on both, then reversing.

Skared - that sounds like about the same spot that PBR ME! got the flat.

Nick - You are more than welcome to join us anytime. Deer Creek is kind of a rarity for us though. Most of us work in the Lakewood area, so we like to keep the FIFO rides close to 6th ave and I-70 corridors so that we can just jump on the highway and blaze into work. It always seems like Deer Creek is way down there, but in reality it isn't very far. After this mornings ride we will probably be hitting it up more often. No more FIFO rides this week as most of us are planning to do the TITS/COMBA Social ride on Thursday night. (Man, how can you go wrong with a ride name like that??) Maybe we will see you there Thursday night?

SS: Nope, Golden is on the radar for next Spring. For now we're neighbors. :D

Scar: Thanks! I'll check into the TITS.COMBA ride tomorrow.
