    TR: Cow Funk

    A little overnight fat-pack in the desert. We rode some sand and drank some whiskey





    Started out with some dune cruising






    Fine sand and dirty water, bearings love it!






    I knew there was going to be water here...



    ...just didn't think it would look like chocolate milk. We let it settle for about 30 minutes or so and it actually filtered out clear. The Platy grav bag is pretty damn sweet. We sourced the rest of our water from the river which proved to be soooooo much better.



    Overnight temps in the low 20's led to a late start and some chilly riding to start day 2



    Those are chunks of ice...keeping the feet dry






    Some cool terrain






    We climbed up to check out the alcove from the last pic









    We didn't have a super strict route planned, found this trail on our way back and it was too cool to pass up



    Back to dune land



    Freeride fatbikepacking is all the rage

    What's a gravity bag?

    Is that bag where gravity finally applies?


    Also. That looks really fun.

    Let mother nature pump your water! It's 2017 for crying out loud, no need to work hard for water filtration, science.

    Nice! Missed the ice chunks the first time I saw the pics. Brrrr!
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.
