    The next day met up with Brett (SqueakyPenguin) in Breck and headed up to Wheeler Lake. I conquered all of the hard lines (with the help of all of my excellent spotters) on the both flopper and the V, Justin should have a pile of pics. We almost got Brett through the V, but he slid off line and needed a little tug to get out, but a valiant effort (maybe a little less throttle next time :D)

    Airing down at Montgomery Res.

    Made it to the lake without too much trouble, the trail is not overly difficult besides the main obstacles, but they have bypasses.

    Parked next to a sick Jeep.

    Next, headed up to Crystal Lake to camp for the night. Cruised up the pretty mellow trail and found a nice spot for the night, and were greeted with a bit of a surprise when Diesel came carelessly trotting back to camp with some new adornments :eek:

    Luckily none of them were very deep, and they all pulled out easily and he seemed like he really could not have cared less.

    Saw Bob's friend from the top of the Cone, and these guys rolled down the hill at him, but he wasn't moving! They were almost touching him before he got out of the way.

    And finally, some trail damage. Somehow either stuffed my tire further than it had gone before, or bent out the sheet metal in the wheel well, and shredded my tire all the way around, luckily not bad enough to flat, and it looks like it should just fine, so I will continue to run it.

    I'm terrible at taking pics, but I do like this one of Justin with the mining stuff in the background.

    Also, I hope the pics will show up soon that explains how I did this:
