Dude! Thats outstanding ! Weekend adventures like that when your single are the best. And to have a girlfriend who understands your obsessions? Priceless.

Oh by the way. You did better than she did.:banghead:

Me, I've been married 25 years. I think I"ll go by myself.:)

PS Great idea on the frozen steak. I"m going to have to try that one.

When I took the steak out of my pack it was not so cold anymore. But I was hungry and thought of the old saying 4hrs at room temp = no good any more to eat. I ate it lt tasted good. I was fine. She was fine. Maybe more ice in my reservoir will fix the problem, OR BIGGER STEAKS.

Thanks for sharing nakedguy. I think your girlfried is a trooper and even though you're not ready to get married, she's a cutie and a keeper!

We're going to try and do the MCCCT sometime this spring or early summer since we got shut down last year.

You are very lucky to be with someone who rides off-road. You better get a ring on her finger before someone else finds her.

I dig it. You are a lucky guy to have a girl that would ride you. If my "ol' lady" went with me, I'd have to purposly endo off a cliff... lol Here in Idaho, we usually do about 90 to 120 miles a day. But we have a base camp to call home. You 2 are awesome!:thumbsup:

ANG, were both of you wearing backpacks or just you? Also curious about how much all your stuff weighed that you carried. Thanks!

We each had the "hawg" back packs from camelbac. When I get some time I can take some pics because they are still packed with stuff. Her backpack was packed with "filling items". Mine not so much.
