Default Memorial Day 2014 photos

Driving down I 70 today seeing tons of yotas and watching all the water jugs on the side of the interstate go by I was sad I didn't spend Memorial Day with my wheeling buddies. This thread is a way to catch up with y'all so post up your best pics of the weekend no matter what ya did!


BBQ?

Wheeling?




We went biking




We got pretty rained on too..

I pedaled today too but close to home, no pix. That looks like Utah red dirt where you are riding.

Kokopelli? Did you do the whole thing Marco?

This is what it looked like over in Gunnison Sunday. Rained for about 4 hours Saturday night into Sunday early morning, stopped about 2 hours before the start. Course was goo mixed with abrasive granite for the first lap, dried out for the second but the hail storm turned it back towards the end of my second. Stuck it out and finished, 174 of 350 with 8:49:56. I was 47 of 75 (including 54 finishers, 3 DNF and 18 DNS) in 40-49 Men. Matt Woodruff won my class in 5:41:43, so I was +3:09:13.

Looks like fun Dan, lucky on the cute girls

Travis, you guys did those climbs OK in the rain/mud? looks like it was a nice trip. Soon we'll get to play higher up, I can't wait for that.

Yes, we rode the Kokopelli.. The start was quite pleasant, the middle/end was pretty brutal.. We left the trailhead in fruita at 2pm, by 3:30am that night it was drizzly/real rainy until we finished. At the top of the whole enchilada (which I was most excited to ride) we actually had to carry bikes a few miles and it POURED. uhg. The muddy pic just doesn't so it justice. I got body slammed into the muddy road a few times.. this was after the sticky mud part where we were carrying bikes. Probably the only time I was grateful for the SS.





I wish I'da gotten pics of all the rigs on I-70, lots of sweet yotas pulling some nice campers. Anybody on here?

Saw a lot of Wy. Plates actually.

I made this artist's display booth for my neighbor.

Then I spent the rest of the weekend working in the ER.

Yeah, it went smoothly. Most of the trail was fairly dry. Just a bunch of mud holes down low. But we did all end up pretty dirty.

We actually did the trail on Monday morning. But I was up there on Sunday at my uncle's place in Bailey, working on some stuff for my truck.
