Jackson.....what an awesome town!  I can't imagine many towns in this country have this sign in front of their parking garages!  Pretty telling how huge the sport seems to be getting, especially in the last 5 years.

Until spring...

 THe last moto day of the season for this crew, and it went down as one to remember for a long long time.  

Nate and Me, catching a breather and taking it all in.  

 Our fearless leader Drew, picking up the pieces at the end of the moto train and taking a wide expanse with no humans all in.  

 Hope to be back to this lil piece of heaven come spring time.  

 There were some very gnarly sections.  

Me getting ready to drop off the brink.

King of Kings

 Well, I am pretty sure we have been down to the San Rafael swell close to 20 times now exploring on our moto's.  But...., there is always something new to see, and my hard adventuring bud Drew dialed in a true gem last weekend that opened all of our eyes and beat us down, in the best kind of way.  

The lunch top hill gang.  

 I challenge you to find one form of human life in this photo other than the badass moto!  

 "Is this really happening Drew?  How the hell are we gonna fit 12 grown men and moto's on this knife ridge?"

 Tucker taking the mans entrance to this one way trail.  

 Note.....Tucker's excitement lasted until he ping ponged off the rocks!  ALl the rest of the mere mortals walked their bikes very gingerly.  

 Nate working his way up the burly Chimney Road "road".  

Yea Mike.

 We had close to 15 people over the weekend camping, riding moto, and being awesome from JH.  It was such a great collection of buds and good times.  

Nate getting after it in a lil wash section.  

 Whole bunch of ski dudes down in the desert soaking up what will be the warmest temps for this crew in 6 plus months!  

 Mike, embodiment of what it is to be on your first moto and sending it!  

 All Jackson dude, one big happy lunch stop!  

 Cocktail hour ensues!  

 And continues......

And then turns into this!!!!!

THe Swell being swell

 We left a blizzard and 7 hours later......, it was 70 and beautiful! 

 First off......massive, massive thanks to my awesome wife for letting my moto habit take me away from being a dad last weekend!  4 days down in the desert ripping moto with my homies in one of my favorite places anywhere was a true treat.  

The Jackson crew rolled down hard and had a riot.

One more of the trick or treat gang!

 And once again Dash is the Big Bad Wolf, but to be fair, even though he had this costume last year, he did nothing but cry in it and then take it off. This year, he roared, wore it to school and even trick-or-treated in it, a big win even though he could never remember if it was a wolf or a doggie and we only got him in it by tauting how soft and comfortable it is (two of his favorite things right now!)

 L to R: Trevor's "interesting" interpretation of the WY bucking bronc won most creative award, Chelsea's smiling teeth pumpkin and Dash's "big smile with little teeth" pumpkin

 He's actually a Big, Nice Wolf

 His favorite part of Halloween was hanging out with Maddy (Brown) 
He's a sucker for older women.

I don't even really know what candy is, but this sure is easy! : )

Work Wanderings

 A few days in the car with a couple of awesome lunch breaks seeing kids all over the state last week.  

Riding cross bike on the backside of Casper Mountain.  

 Unreal 15 mile climb from the high desert to the high alpine.  

 The view out the office.  

An empty War Memorial stadium in Laramie.

The team...

This was the first year that I rode for the Fitzgerald's bike team here in town.  Big thanks to the shop and all that supported me in the racing season.  

Whole lotta powerful bikers in this photo!  

Already pumped on next year and racing even more.

It will happen again...

 Not really sure who got higher, the pumpkin and or Dash.  His smile was massive!  

 Pumpkin tossing.

 So good seeing and spending time with these guys.  

Yea, it was that rad.

Out of the higher elevations and warmer climates last weekend fall was still kicking with the leaves in full swing.  

 Dash was all about Uncle Marco and Aunt Anna.  

 The best.

In the middle

 We made a collective realization with Uncle Marco and Aunt Anna a while back that we don't see enough of one another and that one of the reasons was geographical, aka, 12 hour drive between Tahoe and Jackson is way too far to do in a weekend.  

So, we opted to meet up in Twin Falls, ID last weekend for a weekend of good times.  

Such as....., a huge pile of corn seeds and trucks.  

 And pumpkin checkers and a hay slide.  

We stayed at a working beef cattle ranch in Buhl.

A thing of beauty....

That's right....... A new addition to our growing family!  1994 Polaris Indy 440.  Best of all, it can carry the entire family comfortably and it cost the same as two days of a rental sled, so, it is a win win for all!  Dash has already taken to calling it "my snowmobile."  Even Chels was stoked on the new purchase.  Windshield and a large seat....two things modern day mountain sleds certainly don't have.
