Jackson Day 3

Yeah, these have been a bit slow getting out. Not feeling all that verbose, so just a few photos. Sick Westfalia Syncro (4wd) with truck bed liner paint job. Yes, I’ve got permawood for VW busses of all vintages. Vista Was so windy it blew out a three burner gas grill with the wind closed. […]

Jackson Day 2

Guess I didn’t really update the ol’ blog when I was there. Here’s a quick day 2 recap. After waking up to the below view from my tent was stoked on the possibilities of the day. Rolled from Victor, ID over Teton Pass into Jackson. Cued up the obligatory Modest Mouse for the drive down […]

Jackson Day 1

Pulled into the Teton Valley area around 6PM last night after being on the go since 5AM (and being awake since 2AM – of course was too stoked to fall back to sleep). Long drive made longer by the fact that my Chewbacca had to cancel at the last minute leaving me to roll Solo […]

Trip Report: Surveyor’s Ridge

Short summary: After last weekend’s attempt at finding a different trail resulted in almost running out of […]

Trip report: Forest Park

Just an average, albeit muddy, ride on the fire roads of Forest Park. Distance: Around 15 miles. The iMapMyRide profile is wrong since I forgot to turn the thing off and includes a side trip to Ben of Race Peak Performance’s house. Weather: Typical April 24th PNW spring. Pouring, sunny, pouring, hail, rinse, repeat Short […]

Trip report: Syncline

Spring finally (temporarily) sprung in the PNW on Friday, figured I’d best take advantage before another five day stretch of gray+rain pain. Decided to head out to Syncline again as it is in some weird Bermuda Triangle of weather that allows it to stay dry when the rest of the world within a one hour […]

TR: The Enchantments

After a long, broke ass summer finally had the time to take a little ‘summer vacation’, get outdoors, and check out some sick PNW scenery. Was fortunate enough to have a friend’s name pulled in the lottery for passes, and fortunate again that one of those passes had my name on it. The Enchantments. Overall […]
