I have a fishing kayak you can borrow. They're nailing the Salmon right now off our coast.

Thanks N55! I wonder how long it would take to paddle out 50 miles? That's where they boyz are getting Ablies right now along your stretch of Cali.

I got off my lazy ass and did the Cherry/GSC/Ridge Motorway, in full this morning. Hurt so good. Today was a great day for creepy crawlers. I saw 3 Tarantula Hawk Wasps, a Monarch butterfly caterpillar, two snake tracks, and multiple lizards (4 species). One of the lizards was a Horny Toad. In fact, it's the same one I caught a month or two ago. Same place where I left it back then. :lol:

16.7 miles
7.63 mph av speed
31.85 mph max speed
1325 calories
2618' gain

My bike is badass, huh? :D

Dunno if you guys heard but Garmin got hacked. Their website has been down for a few days now while they repair the damage.

While I am a Garmin customer, I can't keep a grin off of my face.
They have behaved themselves as arrogant as can be, now they pissed all over the wrong guy.


Magura :D

He's getting older, so 32 mph is perfectly acceptable.

LOL! 32 mph is borderline scary on dirt, though. I think the fastest I've done on that stretch of DH is about 34. And you're right, I am slowing down as I age. :lol:

Catching rockfish on freshwater bass gear from something like a kayak along the kelp beds would be A BLAST! :D

You'd need a fast and seaworthy kayak for that. It would be a significant challenge!

EDIT: 10 hours one way.

I might as raise this here: My interest in sea kayak 'foiling' is growing. That 10 miles one way would be quite doable with something like that.

Nice outing, did you tag the Horny Toad Mr. Jim Fowler? To prove it was “the same one from a month or two ago”.

Tough ride today in Big Sky Country. We went deep into Angeles National Forest and rode a few sections of Silver Moccasin Trail and the Mt. Hillyer Trail. The ride took place at elevations of 5000'-6000+' and it kicked my ass royally due to the thinner air. :lol:

Hillyer is a Black Diamond trail but there are portions that should be graded Double Black Diamond. I walked several super tech sections.

Beautiful bright blue skies and pleasant temps. Also a nice breeze blowing. Saw bear and mountain lion prints on the climb up to the top of Mt. Hillyer.

22+ miles
3000' gain

Very nice! When I spent some time in LA a few years back, I was going to head up to Hillyer on a 'day off', but then he called...

Well good. Maybe we can be done with this drama, already. I was tipping into a near homicidal scale of my own over the misplacement of
about $100 worth of herb formulae that ARE ALL-AROUND SOME OF THE BEST SHYTE AROUND in combo for COVID type stuff.
As usual, the little woman "stashed them where they'd be "safe".
Women.

Many places in the desert where folks have ever heard of somebody disappearing, for good? No trace, ever found?

I shore do......

I did a dumb thing this morning, a ride before a day of work. I'm literally ready to lay my head down to go to sleep for the night. Totally spent. And grumpy. In fact, I need a beer. Right now! :D

Cherry Canyon full tour
11.95 miles and the usual elevation gain.

The only good news today is that Garmin Connect is back up and running, online.

Rudely awoken this morning by a moderate quake close by.

After work today, I am heading up to the desert to meet my cousin for a quick two night get away. I'm gonna bring the bike and do a dawn patrol ride up in the rocks there. It's gonna be a scorcher up there since we are in a heat wave here in the Southwest. Forecast highs for the next few days up there are 105 and 106. At least it's dry heat.
