I finally got around to editing the footage from the Porcupine Rim trail, it took a while but that concludes all of my Utah/Colorado footage from this spring. I filmed every trail I rode with the exception of one, (dead battery) and produced a video for each one. It took a while but it was worth it for me. Watching the videos always brings back great memories of the ride and the things I'd forgotten.

There was a ton of footage that I edited out or, 26 miles down into just over 10 minutes doesn't leave room for much. It was an awesome ride, easily one of my favorites. I think I've said that a hundred times.

I'd hoped to have the JET back by this weekend with some new, much needed upgrades but it's not gonna happen. I'm really looking forward to giving it a test run to see how the Shadow Plus derailleur will work, I've heard good things. With a hectic work schedule next week it will be next weekend before I get to ride it. Thank goodness I'm a 2 bike kinda guy or I'd be sitting watching everyone else ride this weekend. I'm due for a good ride on the FROG.

As long as everything goes as planned I'll be testing out thee JET next weekend at Tsali, our last official camping trip of the season, in the ECO. There will be one more camping trip at the Knoxville Fall Festival. We've decided to truck camp this year vs. getting a hotel which makes things more fun and safer considering all the festivities going on late into the night. Last year we left earlier than we wanted, missing out on alot of late night mischievousness, 2 more bands and who knows what else. The truck camping was Melinda's idea surprisingly, I thought the ECO had spoiled her but I guess not so I'm jumping at the chance and running with it. We've never actually slept in the back of my truck, especially with 2 dogs all up in our business. I'll totally have to get back in there and do a good scrubbing. My truck bed has pretty much been a dog house on wheels since we bought it back in 2007. It gets hosed out about once or twice a year but it's never been scrubbed and I guess it's due.
This could be interesting.
