  1. Ravine Drop is super easy to just roll as well as drop. The day Josh and I cut it. Mar 2013, almost a year to the date from when Mike and I started building Deception. Interestingly, the guys (I think Jesse and Chad) flagged this without me...it was actually flagged to turn BEFORE the ravine. I came out and F this, we USE the ravine and so Josh and I cut it...that cedar in the ravine was a major obstacles. I hate people...they stole Big Bones and Little Bones 😞
  2. People concerned with RPR, just take an extra 5 minutes and go to the gun range bridge on Graphite Mine Rd and drop a water cache. That's what I do now, since I refuse to were a full backpack. My 2L will easily get me to the back of the trails to the quarry/gun range bridge area where I can refill. 30.79165100460675, -98.35612447015619 I REALLY miss the granite pool at the pavilion that was the BEST after riding an RPR. I can't even remember the last time I was there that it was functional/with water 😞
  3. I always just launch straight down the middle and go up the same way. I have used the cheater line up, exactly once. For me, the timing gets me, I tend to mash and bash vs being light and lifty. When I slow down and go lighter I tend to make it.
  4. I see the image fine on my PC.
  5. We tried, it was off the table. Up to the current administration now. Wilco's default answer is always "No." Even adding Picnic XX to connect Picnic with Rim was a no-go.
  6. The 2 drops pictured to the west are still there, they have no individual names. Basket is at the very beginning of Upper Picnic (the only 2 way area of Upper Picnic). There is a carsonite post that even reads "Basket Drop". It's the perpendicular, not angled drop - most people roll it. Basket Drop is the first thing I hit in the video...and I ride it the correct way, dropping it. Excuse all the other bullshit in the video...I was in that experimental video phase. Basket and both Upper Picnic Drops, as well of Big Ravine...
  7. That's just trail names...Greg is wanting map with feature names. NOTE: Josh's Caltopo includes planned, but not actual trails as well as closed stuff - Picnic XX, Secret Squirrel(rogue, but actual), Meg option, and of course Up and Over (aka 5.0) is closed.
  8. Remember when BCB was going to add a 3rd drop...much bigger next to the 2 on Upper Picnic...oh yea, you don't because the bitch ass Wilco Steward destroyed it. The t-post would have been buried, road base and then dirt to top it off was the plan. Here's the skeleton we got started.
  9. This is the best I can do...I'd need to blow up Double Down to label everything in there and without pics, it'd be kind of pointless I think.
  10. True, they don't have far to fall, less gravitational pull and those rubbery bones help.
  11. Yep... I think you and I both fooling have dropped Cru on our wife's comfort REI bikes, LOL. I rode all of Picnic including Basket, Big Ravine, Beer, and both Upper Picnic drops on my wife's teal comfort bike with 80mm fork. Novara Flirt FTW...look at that "passive dropper post" I did have to replace her seat and pedals.
  12. I feel you. Also, I think most people do simple roll down Basket. I don't see many people drop it.
  13. Cody's youngster hitting it should give you confidence.
  14. I don't bat and eye on Mulligan and even launch it as far as possible, same with SB EtW. Jammer is a goodamn mindf@ck most days. WtoE Grotto, just fugetaboutit... Going from a 29er HT to a 27.5 squish has taking my percentage on EBD waaaaay down 😞 Seems like the Cradle gets in most peoples head...it's so simple both directions if you just commit and don't pedal strike (maybe close your eyes). Yep, I've had those rides that I clear all the tough stuff and then something stupid trips me up cause I'm slippin' or too heavy on the front.
