Blah. Swapped some gear around and got burned by it.
Playing catch up on posts. I can’t remember why I was solo this day. I was running around the near end of Kapoor, possibly trying to find a way west to Mt Lazar… ran across a brit on a little KTM 150 two stroke.
Trying to play catch up. This was a good run, some snow on the back (north) side of Mt Tood, some new terrain, and lots of revisited track. We did run low on both gas and time. I have video, but that’s the only still picture.

I need a place to store ride ideas. This is mostly places that I haven’t ridden yet.
