TR: weekend in tahoe 11/01/2007 . . .
this thread really should be in Ski & Snowboard this time of year, but since it refuses to snow a buddy noah and i strapped the bike rack where the ski rack belongs and headed up to the mountains.
popped out of bed at 5:30 am much easier than i do at 8:30am when my daily agenda involves going to work. headed east and arrived in meyers around 10.
the uphill slog from oneidas had us wishing for dirt
we found the dirt, but it kept going up
at least there were nice things to look at. ran into ja_surf about here. nice meeting you man!
armstrong pass. we met a guy with a black jamis that i thought might be powdork. imagine his confusion when the second person in 15 minutes asked him for change for a nickel (apparently he had just passed ja_surf)
time for lunch. mmmmmm
wait. the climbing doesn't end at the "pass"?
up, up, up
wtf is that in the background? there's snow in the sierra in november?!
it may look like it's only 4", but it's really more like 6. not everybody is kidwoo
we met up with powpig around here. nice to meet you man, good riding!
we enjoyed a nice flowy downhill on the TRT and then found toads in primo shape. not too many downhill shots, between "i don't wanna die" and "wow, this is awesome" didn't have think to pull out the camera. got a few though.
noah near the bottom of the "crux" of toads
exhausted after a long climb and a a great downhill, powpig, noah and I headed to burger lounge for delicious orgasmo burgers and beer. great end to a great day!
we camped at big meadow and woke up to another beautiful (although chilly, 30deg at 9:30 ) morning. drove up to truckee to explore the sawtooth ridge area. didn't take a ton of pictures today, but got a couple of cool ones.
it's a bridge!
i made noah ride the bridge a bunch of times so i could play with motion blur and get a shot i liked. thought this one turned out cool
techy climbing on the aptly-named powerline trail
great weekend in the mountains. couldn't believe how warm and dry it was, but we made the most of it. cool meeting ja_surt and riding with powpig! hope to see you guys again.

Nice TR nbm. I was feeling kinda bad when I saw S upper truckee was already gated but looks like you were able to make due. Looks like up near corral might be the place to camp late/early season. Sorry I was late to the party, got up there Sunday instead.A good friend would come bail you out of jail. A great friend would be sitting next to you saying..."but damn that was FUN"
