Trip Details

I'll try and give a little more trip details since we have been posting pics and videos in no real order. Friday was spent building bikes and drinking beer :) We took one break when a customer stopped in he rode his Nishiki alien out to the barn and we all had to check it out. I always wanted one of those weird things. hmmmm not sure why just really liked them maybe i liked the alpinestar better. Later we went down to the local brewery and tied one on! Carried home a 5 gallon keg and had a bonfire under a full moon! Seemed like Chaybo ordered up perfect weather for the lincoln peeps snow the weekend before and snow the day after we left but just down right perfect the entire time we were there!

Rest of the story is in the comments......................................

what can you really say? the pics that are going to be posted from the trip are going to speak for themselves. i guess the only other thing to mention is the drive up. the onslaught of tumble weeds smashing into the van out in the panhandle, mike trying to keep the van in a straight line as we are yelling at every weed that comes at the car. the beautiful sunset in wyoming just before the blizzard during the nightime that i had to drive thru, and then the fog that shawn had to go thru. it was well worth the drive.

Saturday we woke up to a great breakfast! Tre hooked it up! The plan was to ride from the house over to Lake Como then ride the ten miles of single track around the lake, then ride up and over to coyote coolie and then back to chaybo's house.

The picture of all of us together is in front of como lake. Ten miles of beatiful single track with these weird hard things in the trail, later chaybo explained to us that we were riding over rocks! There was a moose towards the back of the lake. He was a purdy far away but as i was taking his picture i had this weird feeling like that moose is real big and he isn't that far away and i'm not real moblie with this camera out and off of my bike. Time to go!

We traveled from lake como over to coyotoe coolie via lick creek road. Chaybo step in if i'm wrong. CC was two four mile loops with a two mile connecter all sinlgetrack yummy! Then back to homebase on dirt roads. We ended up with purdy close to fifty and we were all whooped some more than others. I think that i was one that was beat down the most.

Sunday we left the house again sore but we were there to ride after all. Twelve miles up sleeping child road then eight miles up on forest service road yup 20 mile climb to the trail head. Sweet singletrack down to within two miles of homebase.

Monday was crazy creek. We climed up to a cabin. This trail had a little of everything. It was a whole lotta fun coming down outa of that trail. It sure was a nice way to end a great weekend of riding!

Thanks for showing us around chaybo!

that's the weird thing about trips. once you start, they are over so soon. the aniticpation before you leave is so incredible. then its even better when you are there. like a dream. but you get to the end so quick.

time to plan the next trip i guess.

What a trip! It was so good to Chad and the family. What awesome country! We rode for three days and did not even scratch the surface for the trails. Guess we will have to head back soon. If Chad will take us!

Thanks so much Chad

what...another round of guess that meat ?

Hell yes...the deep freezer is plum full. You guys are welcome anytime.


July/Aug/Sept/Oct are the really good months for riding.. well after the snow melts and all. But hell, we got plenty of miles with just the lower elevation singletrack. And speaking of shuttle runs !! Yippie !!

the highlight of the weekend for me was probably hanging out at the forest service cabin and soaking up the sun, talkin' BS and oh yeah the bigfoot sighting.

Is it really over? I couldn't believe how much fun I had, even wolfman commented on my yelling on the way down from Buttercup. Every time I think of the rides a big grin comes across my face. Chaybo, thanks for the being a great host, great guide, and putting up with our smell. Wolfman, it was your sasquatch call that brought him out...
