I wanted to try out the new G-rides in touring mode in a localized setting to find out if there would be any aches and pains, which thankfully there weren't any.
I took a trip off of my back deck over to a local rock quarry skinned out of my property though some logging roads to the quarry that I have been scoping out from the road the whole season. Its not much, but looked like fun, which IT WAS !
Boots felt great, and I took two runs, skinned up, skins off, turns down, skins back on, back up, skins off, back down, skins on, headed home. I was home by noon, and left the house at 1030am, good Sat trip before taking garbage to the dump, and shovel out the driveway.
Heres the images.
My way in
My destination with two runs of trax on it from me, hard to see bad lighting
I increased the contrast level, so you could see the turns
Just incase that didnt do it for you, I marked them up, red = downward tracks, purple = skin tracks
My tracks headed across the quarry, and out into the woods back to the house
It was not much, but I had a blast, and would do it again. I was cramped for time due to errands but if I had more time, more runs would of been had.
Boots were great, so light, way better than my alpine boots.
