We were blessed by the weather fairies with another fantastic warm March day this weekend – so we took advantage of the opportunity with some dirt fun.

It was the first “true test” of our new Ridgeline’s bike-carrying ability and it didn’t disappoint.  Super easy loading/unloading, the bed trunk fits all of our gear and boots with plenty of room to spare for our mobile tool bags and spare parts.

This was another great opportunity for Fuzz to get out and become more acclimated with her Husky, for Glantern to continue to prep for his first Enduro (Sandy Lane next weekend, looking forward to a big review from him on Stayonthegas.com), and for me to practice my hillside tire repair skills.  Thank God we had skilled folks with us, I would surely have pinched the tube again if I were on my own :)  In a blink we had the tube repaired on we were back on our way.  Seriously, I cannot say or repeat it enough – we are so blessed to have such amazing friends.

A tube change that didn't pinch? Impossible!

 

Fuzz had her GoPro taking photos while we were goofing off in the woods, and she happened to grab this one of me practicing some airtime (sadly, she didn’t get one of me nearly looping it a few minutes later ;) )  I love how the other folks are just standing around blabbing to each other while I do my best to maim myself 10 feet away.
