Camp Lynda Day 3 And Bad News

26 Jan

Camp Lynda 2.0 day three was the driest day and would have been the longest day but I only lasted a few hours because..because..because I was tired OK.

After I turned around it got lonely real fast, at least the views didn’t suck. I didn’t have my GPS (it stopped working after my endo on day one) and I took a few wrong turns.  At one point I thought I was about to have a Deliverance moment when I heard someone on a harmonica.


Some new campers and a few familiar.  Kurt and Chris.

Kenny and Dan?

Lynda and Dave C.  I think there were 6 or 7 Dave’s this year. New name for next year:  Camp Daves.

And Sonya.  Lynda may have to start watching her back.


Thanks again to Dave and Lynda for a great camp and if you didn’t make it this year get it on your calendar for next year now. It’s not to be missed.

And now the bad news. No Gooseberry 100k.

New snow today after all the rain that hit over the weekend will make the trail conditions way too messy to be biking on Jem, Gould’s, Rim and may make it impossible to even bike the loop on the mesa. That is, if you could even drive up there.

I will re-schedule for a later date. Possibly late February or March. Stay tuned.

    Dude. So bummed about the bad news. I really expected you to control the weather a litte better. I’ve convinced my wife to approve this trip already, so there’s no way I’m passing it up. So if anyone else is heading down this weekend, let me know. You can find my email via my blog.

    Aaron-Just about everything except the trails we were going to ride should be rideable.

    Brad….good talking to you on your way back on day 3. If I would have known you were going to get yourself lost, I would have volunteered for guide service! However, you may not be able to ride as slow as I do without falling over 🙂

    Good times.

    And I saved everything to do the Gooseberry 🙂 No, just kidding. I am thinking I will not miss next years Camp Lynda. Shoot, if Dave can make it from Missoula, I can. What was I thinking? Hoping to see you in Montana for one of our bigg-uns. Like Rapeljie 24! Butte 100! 8 Hours of Labor! … Oh yea!

    Yeah, I figured I’d stick to the lower elevation trails. Fortunately San Jorge has a lot of those.

    Damn, I was hoping 2 use this weekend’s ride as the maiden voyage 4 my new Pereira 29er rigid singlespeed, but I will not receive the bike until the first part of February. So this is actually a little like good news 4 me! I will just have 2 “shakedown” the bike until the rescheduled 100k date.

    What kind of rigid fork is that on your Pumpkin Pie Vassago?

    Just curious.

    Bill-I have the Butte 100 on calendar.

    KK-church is always good as long as its outdoors.

    Ronaldo-Waltworks brushed steel with a clear coat. Thanks for stopping by.
