Sometimes it's cold, sometimes it rains, and other times it snows. But it all brings perspective, making the good times that much better! All of which was the norm on the VMBT.

Dang, Virginia ain't no joke! We spent 4 days on the VMBT and got our butts kicked. The George Washington National Forest is home to some old school singletrack, a lot of which was built in the 1930's by the CCC. Thanks to the @chumbausa homies for showing us around their local goods!

Had a blast putting on the Standard Deluxe Dirt Road Century with the @terrafirmacycling crew. Long red dirt roads, mustaches, live music, and plenty of beer, some of it even hidden along the course. Until next year!

As we reached the top of the days last climb, a vehicle pulled up along side us. A shirtless man with missing teeth looked at us and asked concernedly, would y'all like a beer? As he got out of the car, he apologized for his wet pants and handed us three ice cold Bud Light Platinums. It's times like these that I truly appreciate the South.

Big Kahuna on the Cascades of the Nantahala. Theres something about the Cascades, maybe it's the proximity to the road, the crowd of onlookers, or maybe that it only runs a handful of times each year that inspires under-gunned kayakers to give it the ole college try. Whatever the inspiration, it left me at the bottom, drinking a bootie beer with half a paddle.

I'm afraid to report that the trails around Northwest Georgia aren't worth visiting. The singletrack definitely isn't awesome, the gravel roads aren't plentiful, and the scenery's not worth but a glance. Y'all should ride the Front Range instead. Jayjoshing

The Wonderland Trail of Mt Rainier. Only just a morning we spent hiking around the reflection lakes, one day I hope to see the trail in its entirety.

Being able to mountain bike year round sure is sweet. Summer even looks bearable from this photo. Not pictured: 90 degree heat, humidity, and a crotch full of chiggers.

Happy to share the @camp.sorba story with Eskapee. Check the link in my bio. . . The ‘Deep South’ isn’t quite known for its mountain biking. Don’t get me wrong, quality trails are popping up here and there but it’s nothing like the wild west, with its plethora of public land and endless ribbons of singletrack. Here in the south, where public land is as uncommon as fat-free butter, we have to fight for our trails.

A seemingly serene camp. Just before we were kicked out by a herd of cattle, donkey, and their requisite human caretaker.

Our last pass. Punta Olimpica has been described as the granddaddy of Andes passes, standing just over 16,000'. The majority of which is now paved, it leads to a tunnel which burrows through the mountain side. The top portion, which passes over the tunnel has been left in its original state, unmaintained. Now covered in boulders left from landslides and piles of snow left from the last storm. Here @hbirdd8 passes through the notch at the very top.

Our last camp was easily the most scenic. Nestled on a boulder strewn ridge at 15,000 feet. The road on one side and the glacier-strewn peak of Ulta on the other. This abandoned stone house that is now used as a lookout reminded me much of the fire lookouts in the Cascades where Kerouac spent his time cold and alone but inspired nonetheless to write his novels.

|| Among the Cordillera Blanca || . . Pupash, the second and shortest pass on the route, was built at the beginning of the century. Without a doubt it was the quietest road on the route, we quite enjoyed it. One of the many reasons we bikepack instead of road tour is the lack of traffic, which tends to offer a more peaceful and intimate experience with the surroundings.

|| Among the Cordillera Blanca || After an entire night and morning spent underneath Ulta (19,275'), it only revealed itself but a couple of times. In this season, days spent around these peaks can result in... well just a peek.
