Default Rubi's Western Adventure '09

I guess Gerbil is involved this year, but he can make his own thread if he wants to. I'm just trying to maintain continuity in titles between last year and this year.

We've been here for 6 days, and it's snowed every day. We've gotten 25" of snowfall since we got here. No big storms, but consistent decent snow since about Wednesday last week. On Tuesday, we rode in really warm conditions. It was pretty fun, but plowing through melting powder that wasn't set up burned up gas at a furious pace. Gerbil got 4.5 mpg, and I couldn't achieve a track speed any faster than 25 mph. We got some fun climbing in though, and it was really nice and sunny until the next storm started to roll in.

A couple days ago, I went and bought a sled. I got a pretty good deal on a 600 RMK that had only been ridden 3 times. It only had a little more than 150miles on it. We rode on Saturday, and there was really nice powder. About 6" at the trailhead, and about 14" near the summit. In areas protected from the wind, the snow was breaking about bumper level on my IQ, and on Gerbil's Edge the snow was coming over the hood.

I'm going to start the adventure story from the beginning eventually, but I need to take more photos and have some time to work on it. Until then, this will have to suffice.

Rubi and I went out riding for a while yesterday and got a few pics for all of you. It was a gorgeous, bluebird day. The sun was starting to do a pretty good job on the snow in a few spots but other places were pretty good.

The pics would be posted right here but I am not being allowed to post them.

I would, but I don't want to sit in a gay cyber-coffee shop for hours like Gerbil seems to love.

Hey! We were having hot animal cybersex while I was in class.

Edited to add that coffee shops really are pretty gay. I've never been in one that hasn't been filled with buttlovers.

To Gerbil and Rubi:

One day when you are skiing, head into the ski shop and see if they've got a Atomic Hawx 110 or 120 in a 27.5. I am striking out around here.

Let me know.

Flatlander, Vert, and the HobbZ clan: we will probably be riding with Mud down in Alpine on either Friday or Saturday the last weekend in March. If you have any interest in meeting up for that ride, get in touch. Thunderstruck is supposed to be filming down there around that time, and Mud says he plans to whoop all over their asses, so the ride could be entertaining!

Someone please take pictures of Mud whooping the Thunderstruck guys. This I have to see! Rich, I assume you will be renting a M with goals that lofty.

Someone make sure and get a sample of what Mud is smoking these days.........

Most of those guys got balls the size of grapefruit and skillz to match. I've seen a couple of them ride firsthand, they live for riding ......

But hey best of luck at handing them their asses.

I answered Mud's PM, if I'm free from work that weekend, I'll drive over there.
