Choose Your Battles

While others chose to fight crowds at at Walmart and Best Buy on the breezy Black Friday, me and some of the boys decided to duke it out in G-Dub. What everybody forgot, was that Black Friday is also a big hunting day. When we pulled into the lot, there was a boy of about 8 with his father, decked out head to toe in camo with rifle in hand. The way the boy swung the gun about had us all a bit on edge, especially since most of us forgot our brightest gear to don. Anyway, we all returned, more or less in one piece after climbing up Sherman Gap, riding the ridge over and descending down Buzzard Rock. Plenty of chills and spills to be had. Lets get to some images.




Chad on Sherman...



Poz over a respectable log...




Pat finds a line...



Pat and Andy climb...




Lots of texture out there...



Always a good idea to check the signs...



I always seem to be shooting into the sun...



Andy thinks twice...



The view to the north...



Almost a good shot...



Andy on the steps...



Andy at the bottom of the steps...





Looking to the east...



Click to enlarge and note the expressions...



Pat goes OTB...





The carnage...



Looking south...



Not sure if it had anything to do with the safety orange vest, but I haven't seen Andy shed so little blood on a ride ever...



Poz enters a steep switch back...
