Home...

..and everything associated with it. Nice to be here. Mostly unpacked, even answered some emails, but still not brave enough to pick up the phone...

Funny how long it takes to shed reality and get into character 'out there', yet how quickly it fades and then reality comes rushing back in. Just the way it is, I guess...

I've downloaded all the pics and had time to edit/crop ~50 or so of them. With any luck I'll have time and motivation to start sharing anecdotes along with the photos later this week.

This shot, however, needs no explanation.(I recommend clicking/zooming that'n...)

Twas oh-so-nice to come back to the desert right as spring finally succeeded in nudging winter aside. Ultra tacky dirt sure is fun to ride. Not as hoot-a-rific as pushing 4" tires around at 8psi for two weeks, but it might just catch on anyway...

Cheers,

MC

  1. Welcome back, sureal photo, Martian rover tracks and all. They read like a book, connecting you to where you were going, pulling you along. Then looking up at the landscape seems like you would freeze in your tracks.

    I have the opposite 'problem', I get into character all too quickly out there. It's a problem when I am forced back into reality, my brain resists it mightily.

    Welcome back and maybe we'll see you on one of them tacky trails this weekend.

  5. Mike;

    How'd your food choices work out? Will you ever be able to eat freeze dried food again?!?!

    Also, how much body weight did you drop?
