Colorado has the strangest Rules -- Ok to take a snowmobile and smoke everybody out - but hey put a kite up and do some kite boarding in the snow or in one of their lakes and they will issue a ticket -- it makes no sense a totally environment friendly, zero impact on the environment - and the park rangers want to harass me -- but don't mind the snowmobiles, drag boats, jet skis ect - drives me crazy ---

What you doing in Yellowstone? Im going to hit up Yosemite in August.


Get out and Play Harder😛

Guess it depends on where you go . I see plenty of guys kite boarding on the snow . etc . park rangers are the same everywhere and Ca is one of the most restrictive states around ! whats really getting bad is the forest service closing roads left and right for no reason . keep people off the public lands . Happening all over the west

I'll be working at a Mountianside KOA and fly fishing some of the best waters in the country along with plenty of rode trips on the bike .
Wanted to hit Yosemite a few yrs ago when we did a cA coastal bike ride rest of the group wanted to go another way so never saw it . that's what happens when you go with a group , done with groups

Can you tell me what the Hercules tire models and sizes you are going with? I see a small town tire shop in a little GA town just north of me and might just check them out. I really want to get a better tire on the TV, and if I can swing it, the TH, as well.

It's a tacking thing - like sail boats upwind tac downwind tac --- but when you put over 400 kiter together in a race tangles do happen - that's part of the fun ---- lots of RV spots up and down the Columbia gorge - if you plan a trip let me know and I will send you a list.
