Much respect to Chomps, he hung in there, was a trooper and didn't complain...despite not having much of a choice in the matter. He couldn't see, didn't know where we were going (don't think he ever did look at a trail map and in poor judgement---trusted me )...it was a mellow ungroomed cat track leading to the Canyon And by that time was waaay too far/deep to hike out...so down we went . Chomps rocked Blood Alley, survived the Canyon and slashed a double black NorthFace only making 2-3 turns. He did great, kept his anxiety contained....and despite huge a boulder on the road...moguls and death cookies in the Canyon...survived his pilgrimage to the holyland and saw the light.

Thank you, Wrathful, after yesterday and today I can't believe I was considering it!

Was great meeting you again, AND riding with you this time

And Chomps (how do you even do mentions), was great meeting too! <-- he makes a lot more sense in meatspace than on the forums

So bummed work interfered with a Bachelor trip I'd be up for these sorts of meetups, and I'd love to ride new mountains as well. And as my riding improves, maybe go to crazier places on those mountains

....the very least of the hazards @wrathfuldiety exposed me to at Baker!
That boulder appeared in the "going up"
Lane to Baker Saturday morning.

Awesome thread and pictures. Looks like a great trip!

That video was also awesome!

Who's who in the video? Is that Mr. Neni in the blue jacket w/ black/grey pants? Dude fucking rips.
Same for the guy in black w/ the white union bindings. Fuckin' rips.
Whoever is doing those one-footed tricks is ridiculous.
Was that Argo Jr. in the park? He's pretty nasty in the park Argo!

I wish we had those decent conditions when Neni, Chomps and everyone else was here... The conditions were classic bad northwest conditions....


Here is Argo JR, I did do this edit.... no park in it though... I posted it before but I don't mind posting it again.
