So the Duwango Tango Mancation '16... bear with me. The memories are clouded a bit.
It was probably not the best decision, but since our flight was leaving so damn early on Friday, I went ahead and crashed on Bill Nye's couch the night before we left. Many beers were consumed, and the 4:00 AM alarm was none to welcomed. It was a long couple of flights to Durango. Let's just say that and move on.
Matt McFee scooped us right up, drove us to this place, and the bike building commenced, headaches not withstanding.
Matt offered to take us on a short local ride. Probably the most we could handle, given our poor judgment shown in the last twelve or so hours.
Pardon me while I take awhile to binge-listen to some Whitesnake.
Okay, I'm back.
Although the ride was pretty short, it was slightly damaging.
Matt showed us the goods of a recently built trail, and on the way down, we ran into Travis Brown... on his way up... I have no idea why.
Anyways, a mostly uneventful ride, aside from discovering the hard way that mebbe I shoulda checked my tire sealant some time between now and when I first set up these tires/wheels back in... April. Doh.
Back at Matt's, add sealant, tire holds air, drink beer, bed time... I think. Maybe we ate/drank something/somewhere that night. Steamworks Brewery? Mebbe.
Up early the next morning to hop on a Hermosa Tours van headed for Kennebec Pass.
We spent a decent amount of time putzing about and taking pictures way high up there.
BTW: Hotel bacon. It's such a thing.
Carbo Rocket Half Evil everyday, I ate nothing else on every ride.
Back to the narrative, we got wet from rain stuff that came our way.
Good news, I guess.
Pop out at the bottom and one more stop before heading back to the hotel.
I had sorta made arrangements to stop by King Cage HQ to pick up a set of titanium cages for the By:Stickel Meatplow V.6. I've not lost one bottle out of my King Cages on the Vertigo Meatplow V.7 since I got them... two years ago? Anyways, we pull into the driveway, knock on the door, and his wife greets us. Ron had gone into town, but that didn't stop things from happening.
