OK, given last Thursday evening's "adventure", I am inspired to post this question to all to see who's done the dummest, most idiotic thing while riding. I'll start... Riding in the early evening last Thursday up at St. Mary's Glacier/Central City area...heading up some new trail that we've never been on (matter of fact, the whole area was new to us). Sitting up in a totally exposed area (above the tree line) at about 12K ft, we notice a thunderstorm rolling in from the west. Decision time...do we try to find this different trail up in front of us and try to take it down...or do we simply turn around and head back down the way we came (and are familiar with)? Well, the obvious choice was "forge ahead"! So we sort of find this trail which we think is the correct one and take it down a ways...steep, loose, rocky shale...again totally exposed...and it turns into what I think is the top of St. Mary's glacier! With no more trail in front of us (only a bunch of snow), we attempt to turn around to no avail...as we both get stuck. I dump my bike over about 4 times...and manage to foul my plug. At about this time, the storm's over top of us...lightning everywhere...pouring down on us...and it's now dark. Frantically, I change my plug and somehow manage to get unstuck (with my friend's assistance...thanks again Jim!). Both scared out of our gourds, we get to where we can ride out...and then the Lord shines down on both of us...and the storm rolls on by. With dirty britches, we both ride back the way we came and finally get back to the truck and safety... Lesson Learned: Dont "F" with mother nature...just avoid her at all costs!
