I can see why you'd feel that way.wow. that is awesome. I want to ride up the walls skatepark style and huck out of them.
yeah, coming from a guy that dragged camping gear on his motorcycle all the way to Alaska and back (11,600 miles) and didn't use it at all, you can see where my priorities lie...That said, once loaded down with boat/paddle/pfd, tent, sleeping bag, food, etc... your eyes (or at least mine) tend to see things differently. More contemplative and appreciative, less rad.
99% rideable. Just short bits to walk down/through boulder piles or pinches.I tend to try to avoid the "canned" experiences, but sometimes it's unavoidable. That looked great!
How much of that trip was really rideable? It looks like there might've been a lot of short dismounts and short ride sections.
And lastly, how FAT is that frame bag...between your feet/legs? Looks well-stocked.

That more or less describes my focus these days. Way less interested in duplicating stuff, largely because the good stuff is known and crowded. Way more enjoyable and satisfying to sniff out new stuff.This year we were filling in gaps of places we had never been, and it was all universally great.
