2013 UTMA Ride to Glady’s Place

I signed on for this year’s UTMA – Cache Valley ride. There ended up being a good size group this year, so we split into three different groups. I elected to go on the Glady’s loop. We had a good time.

Crew: Wes, Colton, Neil, Porter and me.

The Rueben sandwich was tasty after eating all that dust. Towards the end of the video I was right behind Porter when he almost crashed, but saved it, when he hit a nasty rock in the middle of the trail. It couldn’t have been more than a minute after that when I did the same thing, but wasn’t able to save it, probably would have been some cussing if I hadn’t taken a handlebar to the neckā€¦ fortunately it wasn’t too bad and I got back on the horse with just a little less ego.

Sink Hollow to Beaver Creek with kids!

In my mind, we hit a major moto milestone yesterday. After hitting some trails near Copenhagen Basin a few weeks ago, I decided it was time to take the kids on a trail that I’ve dreamed about taking them for years. It was a little slow going, but the boys needed very little help and Logan is really starting to work the clutch well. Landon just bounced through everything on the little 110 like a champ! They were in a good mood and having fun the whole ride, loved it.

Finally, this is the year where I feel like I can start taking them on rides that I really enjoy as well.

I think the next ride I try with the kids will be Beaver to Glady’s, we’ll have mom drop us off and pick us up down in Fish Haven so we can jump in the lake afterwards. If you have kids and don’t mind going slow, join us!
