Grab your gondola

We road the gondolas up the mountain 3 times today. We did 3 different rides from the top. One really burly one. Well they were all kind of nutty. But the last one was a death defier.
Oh and let me add this: These folks are serious riders and live it like we do. It's a great group of people. Mark and i are running up front with the guide Chris and the kid. And some of the strong climbers.The down hills. Shoooot! Fugetaboutit.
The owner and guide Chris who runs tours all over the planet. Here, South Africa, Costa Ria, and British columbia. To name a few. Anyway he came up to me this evening after the ride and said you're a really good ride. You rip. Haha yeah! I'm international baby. Ray is really eating up the terrain. Virigina hasn't hurt his handling skills at all. I watched Mark really pull out all the stops on the technial stuff. His tires packed up with mud so bad he had no traction to slow down. It was sketchy but he did it all the way down that crazy steep steep run.
