Mystery overnighter groups

Just got out of the shower and was thinking back on the last 3 kick @ss days.

First, the folks that came on the mystery trail were fantastic. I’ve lead/guided a lot of trails. I don’t think that I’ve ever had folks with such enthusiasm.

We ran one of the most difficult and arduous trails in the area (I knew y’all could do it) and to add insult to injury, a storm ripped through and turned the rock gardens into skating rinks and filled the mud holes to the brim with slop.
The group kept their focus and enthusiasm until the end where we forced them to drink margaritas at 10pm when we finally made it to camp.
We winched, we strapped, we maxtrax’d, we spotted. The teamwork was great, from slinging muddy maxtrax to holding flashlights and to making each other drinks at camp. Big shout out to mix master Amory for killing the bar setup.

It’s was soo great to see the permagrin on everyone’s face while ripping the sand dunes and doing back to back bumper deep water crossings for miles lol. We rolled into camp 3.5hrs late and I didn’t count a single frown.



Y’all are truely what makes this really really enjoyable. Thanks for the great adventure, and give yourself (and your wife and daughter) a pat on the back. I can’t wait to see your lovely faces next year.



If you have pictures I’d love to see them.



Sorry/not sorry for the long post :)

I love reading these kinds of reports.

Busting a grin with friends through the bangs, slips, slides, scrapes, pulls, spins and “oh craps” — is just flat out fun.
