Fifty Four

This past Saturday Katie, the Dogs, and I headed South with plans of an overnight somewhere on the OT. Once we arrived at the 32/DD lot we learned of a 275 acre controlled burn on some of the Middlefork and most of Council Bluff Lake loop. It was this that made us decide to hike to CBL, and also the idea of not having to worry about water, camp, fire, and of course toilets! This is the perfect overnight if you want a good 4-5mi hike, but are short on time. It was really amazing seeing the burn in action, and easily the largest burn I have ever witnessed. It turned out to be one of the best trips we have had, and we will be doing this one again soon!

That is all.

Fifty Three

Ouachita was one week ago today, and it was truly another epic experience. I will continue to go down to Oden each year for that race no matter what. It is an early start to the season it's easily still the toughest race I have ever done, but the greatest feeling to complete it. Go here for my Bros report, and go here for my garmin link. I have been so busy it seems and riding/hiking a ton. I can't wait for Syllamo's! Today Katie and I took the dogs on a 10mi loaded hike and we saw Taggart and Gino out enjoying the trails as well. Hope everyone has been riding, and I will see you on the trail!
