Sargents 8/22-24

First off...How the h@!! do you people breathe up there? lol

Melvin and I got an invite from Don for a "Mountain ride" and for the first time in too long we both had the time to make it. WHOO HOOOO!

Loaded up the scooters and off we went to Sargents, CO.

Random pictures from the drive up the mountain.



Met Don Thurs afternoon. He had us set up with a sweet cabin.




Friday, Don took us on a "warm-up" ride (the "real ride wasn't till Sat. and Sun. after Adam and Jeff had arrived (haha))






The crew, left to right: Jeff, Adam, Melvin, Don and Joe




A cool Vietnam memorial



Our ammo


Just a cool picture Sat. night as the sun was going down


Sunday I didn't get the camera out till we we're somewhere about 4 trillion feet (or 12,654 feet) above sea level (I guess the lack of o2 makes ya forget somethings lol)




On the way back to the barn:


This is a cool part of one of the trails....the trail is actually right there in the creek

+1!!! SWEEET!!!!

cool pics.

Glad you guys had fun.

Ssshhh, about this place!

Please write letters/call the Forrest service about keeping the trails open to motorized dirt bikes. Many of the trails are having issues up there, especially Monarch Crest trail. Help us keep them open!

Where are those cabins located? Are they the ones at the new trading post/cafe there in Sargents?

In the picture, the one on the right is the owners house. The one on the left has the owners garage in the ground level and then up at the top of the stairs on the left is the "bunkhouse". If I remember correctly, there is a bathroom/shower, kitchen, a few chairs a couch, small coffee table area, a pretty long dining table, 4 double beds, and 2 sets of bunkbeds (4 beds). All this in one huge rectangular room.

We stayed there last year. I think it was $125 or so per night. We had 8 guys so about $16 per night per guy. Many of the guys just walked over and showered at the "shower place" instead of waiting for the shower at the bunkhouse.

We had a rule that NO GEAR or RIDING CLOTHES come up to the room. Otherwise with gear for 8 people, there would not be room to walk around. We had enclosed trailers that we set up as dressing rooms and left all the gear in there. That made for a pretty clean (not smelly) living/sleeping area.

      Three of us decided to get the heck out of the Midwest weather as we are suffering a bad case of the wife is driving us crazy right along with the cabin fever.  A couple of us have been to MOAB once before but we're only three and we like a bit larger group when the riders are fairly well matched.  However, and this may show what I DON'Y know about MOAB, the one day of riding I was able to do out there last year before having to head home for a family burial, it seems to me that the skill level required for most of MOAB is fairly dialed down compared to Taylor Park so matching up skill level as a group seems less an issue.  Now don't skin me alive if I am wrong, I already said I don't really know the area yet.  So anyway, if anyone is interested in joining us on the trail, we'd like to know about it!

      Weather should be awesome, thinking of taking the day off to go ride rampart or something else close Friday. I'm not one to go riding by myself so if anyone is thinking about it let me know! My usual riding buddy has plans.

      Spring is almost here and I was wondering if anyone has been by pipestone... How is the snow looking?? MTDOT pass web cam is down so I could not get a visual on the snowpack. is the lower area still a bit wet or is it starting to dry up a bit. Looks like we have some really good weather this week. I think I am going to head there this saturday to check it out but if anyone has any updates post them here.
      Also, last year was my first year there and we only hit it in the late fall. We really liked the area and were able to go 4 or 5 times. If you are a regular shout out and lets go riding.... I plan on spending a lot of time there this year.
