Thats why wheelin alone sucks. Nobody else wanted to go? I have never been there but it looks like it would be a good summer trail.

That's some good fun right there. Wheelin solo puts a person to the test from time to time. Glad it all turned out well with good video.

I really enjoy exploring new trails. Wheeling alone doesn't bother me. Its the walk out that sucks. I always get lucky but one day im sure i will have a trip such as yours. We always need luck on our adventures!

Video doesn't load up.

Just wondering, the Usibelli land isn't posted?

I have hauled coal from there before and they were super super anal on safety. We had to have hard hats, vests, safety glasses and be escorted by a worker to get loaded up.

You aren't getting in there unless you have connections.
