    Here are some pics. They're mostly from the last day when I was too beat up to ride much.

    We're coming in really late, so we didn't make dinner (obviously), but I will see you all on Saturday morning at Sandia Peak, 8:30 or so.

    We're staying in the Turquise Trail campground, which is down the hill (on the way) from the ride meet up spot, so if someone feels like picking me up on the way, that would save my wife from having to get out of bed early

    Hey, thanks. I'm heading back north rather than further south. It's a pretty bad sprain, I felt stuff tear when it happened, thus the xray. No way I'm riding any time soon, I'm still barely walking with a cane (actually, riding would be fine if I never ever had to dismount - I should at least be back on a wimpy two-wheeler pretty quick). We're hitting some more museums, mini golf / laser tag / bumper boats place, and Craters of the Moon on the way home (I'm just going slow and sitting out a lot of it), so the family is not too upset with me.

    uniShark Hey all,
    I'm afraid I'm bagging out. Sprained my ankle on slickrock trail today. Was riding with Ben, and I'm sure he'll be happy to explain how it wasn't his fault (really, it wasn't). We had some great fun riding and hanging out in Moab, and I'm bummed to miss out on meeting everyone else. I'll definitely try for next year.

    It was some good riding until the end, we were 1/2 mile frot the car when James came off and stepped down into a pothole, rolled his "goodleg", was able to hobble back to the car, fortunately the xrays were good, but the ankle is twisted bad, so he's done.

    He was talking about going back early so that he wouldn't burn up another week of vacation and the kids wouldn't miss another week of school.

    After James got hurt I decided to head into SLC a day early, so I'm hanging with the family, getting ready for yet another ride on the Crest Trail to Mill D; my fifth ride in four days

    My wife flew out to SLC to meet me and see ur daughter, so I'm taking the slow boat to Albuquerque tomorrow, so I'll be missing the Friday ride, but we'll be there for Friday night festivities and Saturday riding.

    Another tip: If you will have a car in Albuquerque, DO NOT leave unicycles or other valuables unattended in plain view. It WILL be stolen in under 24 hours. This is true pretty much anywhere in ABQ including the trail parking areas. You can avoid a lot of trouble by simply storing valuables in a locked trunk or keeping them with you. Thanks.

    I want to remind everyone of a few things:

    First: Albuquerque sits at a mile high, and all of the trials that we will be riding are above the city. If you are comming from sea level please bring extra water and don't drink too much. If you do plan on drinking (which I condone ) please drink water while you drink.

    Second: This is going to be an fun weekend, we will all do our best to make sure awesomeness ensues.

    More gear swap stuff:

    Tubes:
    Duro 26 x 3" DH Tubes, work great for 29er DH as well.

    Misc:
    Surly Fixer and Shimano Hub for fixed bike wheel build
    Garmin Foretrex 101 GPS Wrist/Bike unit
    Old School POV Sport Cam Corder by Oregon Scientific

    Will except cash, infants, and fine wine

    Also, I will have a first prototype 36er tire for hands on oogling, it's the pre production version with extra rubber (1800gm), the production version is the same design and pattern but 300gm lighter. I believe the production tires will be available in the next couple weeks...

    And of course, I am bringing the 32er

    Stoked to meet and ride with everyone!!

    On that note, I wonder if anyone would consider swapping their 29" for my 36"...
