October 2018 MTB Road Trip – Too Many Troubles!

I just returned from Outerbike in Moab and the end of a 3 week road trip. The first part was a visit to Yellowstone and that went well. We rode Fruita, CO a little then over to Moab where I ripped my lower back and was off the bike for five days. Ugh.

That is rare for me but when it happens I’m almost totally disabled.  Even down and up on the toilet because hellish torture.  Living out of our van is no worse than a motel room and at least in the van I have a 360 degree view!

Finally back on the bike for a couple of rides and then the weather turned to rain, rain, rain on the Saturday afternoon and Sunday of Outerbike. The weather looked bad for the rest of the week so I drove home. Fortunately few trips have this level of disappointment.

I was able to shoot some additional video near Fruita and the Horsethief Trails near Moab.  Besides my other problems I forgot my GoPro chest harness at home.  When Katya flew home she sent it to me – $40.  Ugh.

We did enjoy showing off our repainted Yeti SB95c’s! They look so new and shiny! Photo on Horsethief Bench above the Colorado River.
