  1. You can find them for around $250. Here is a short video review on the camera. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kv5Y8rYfg7Y]YouTube - ‪Pentax Optio W90 Digital Camera‬‏[/ame] I have been nothing but impressed with them.
  2. I would recommend the Pentax Optio W90 to anybody looking for a rugged, water proof, dust proof camera that takes great pictures and HD Video. They are outstanding for the money and tough as nails. The Kodak is a great camera but is not as durable as the Optio. My buddy actually dropped his in the river while shooting a video and was able to catch it several hundred feet down stream. It made for some great video the camera is still working great to this day.
  3. It is a point and shoot Kodak Z950. The scenery makes taking cool pictures easy.
  4. My buddy and I made a quick morning ride to the top of Stukel Mountain. We unloaded about 10min from the house and headed up the hill. This place has a great mix of everything from high desert, big hill climbs, grassy meadows and great views. Starting up, looking North toward Hogback and town. To the North East Near the very top I almost ran over a grouse and saw a lone doe near the top...she must have been lost. A view to the North looking over Klamath Falls and the southern end of Klamath Lake. Looking South to Mnt Shasta We were above the clouds and once in a while one would blow by. I took some video and tried to pan around to show what great views are on top. They don't do it justice.

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWLYb_OdW9s]YouTube - ‪100 2421‬‏[/ame] A pair of bad motor scooters!! We went over a ridge to the East and checked out a few meadows. A small lake All in all it was a great ride!
  5. We took a group of riders back to Bryant Mountain today. It was a cold and snowy day....typical end of May weather. ;D The views are great all around this place. We made a quick stop and took a few pictures. We made our way around close to 10 lakes and stopped at a few to take in the sights. Don with the brightest coat on the planet so we don't loose him this trip. We made our way by some springs that led to a lake so someone had to play in the water. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWRFeyGxlo0]YouTube - ‪100_2391.MOV‬‏[/ame] More of the group We made our way back to a little lake for lunch. This spot is great and a few of the guys found some Morels near by. Lunch by the camp fire...it doesn't get any better. We headed up the ridge to a great vantage point but had to play a little in the snow. It is getting very soft!! The Canned Ham Renegade X tearing it up. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUYRejk-1NI]YouTube - ‪100_2401.MOV‬‏[/ame] Oops...someone found some deep stuff. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPBZJzPf-Mo]YouTube - ‪100_2402.MOV‬‏[/ame] The Renegade tearing it up again. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6o3F1as0Zc]YouTube - ‪100_2404.MOV‬‏[/ame] That is one fun machine, instant horse power! We made our way to the vantage point. On the way out, the snow hit and we took shelter under a big pine for a while. It was cold with snow from time to time but all in all it was a great ride.
  6. I am thinking very seriously about either a Sportsman Touring or Can-Am Outlander Max. I had a touring on order but things fell through. Anybody have first hand experience with both? What are your thoughts and comments? Any useful information will be appreciated.
  7. Well, a buddy of mine and I decided to go for a ride on Bryant Mountain. Neither of us have been up there in 20 or so years so it would be an exploratory ride looking for a route to take a larger group. Dad was gracious enough to let me ride his Polaris 550XP for the day. I must say, I really like this quad! The Views all around the mountain are outstanding. The views near the truck arn't half bad. Now, I had forgotten just how many small lakes are in this area. We passed around 10 different lakes and I quit taking pictures after the first half dozen or so. Some old corrals MANY lakes We continued on to the East side of the mountain and found some great views. We were only able to get about 2/3 of the way to the top due to posted property. The views did not suck. On the way back down we did a little drift busting....and winching. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9Gbf_nkd4c]YouTube - ‪100_2332.MOV‬‏[/ame] This stuff was getting pretty darn soft [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WA1crg_WRo]YouTube - ‪100_2333.MOV‬‏[/ame] The 550 getting it done. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9eR-Tf0CCI]YouTube - ‪100_2334.MOV‬‏[/ame] Mike with some custom wheel inserts More lakes We decided to stop at Sims Lake for a little lunch. On the way back around the mountain we came across a very cool spring that came out from under some boulders. Mike putting the fun of a little mud in the air. We made a quick side trip to check out some views. All in all it was an outstanding ride and a great time.
  8. That is one of my favorite rides.
  9. I added 1" spacers all the way around on my 07 Grizzly 700. It was the single best thing I did on that machine. Handling and stability were greatly improved. I put over 2300 hard miles on that machine, 2000 with spacers and never had an issue. If I bought another Grizz it would be the first thing I put on the machine.
  10. My buddy just purchased a brand spanking new Polaris 850 with power steering and we HAD to take it out and break it in right. We made a quick ride part way up the mountain before we set out on a trek. This quad is what an ATV should be...very nice in all aspects. A nice trail with loose softball sized rocks to make things slick We stopped part way up the mountain to take in the sceenry. It was a quick loop to break the Polaris dream machine in and we headded back. The next morning we meet up with some guys looking to have a fun ride. We decided to make our way down into part of the river canyon for a lunch break. Great sceenry. Boys and their new toys A nice place to stop Up to the lookout we went, It is a nice 2400' verticle climb. A quick shot from the top while the others were catching up. Good times all around. Here was the route and profile.
  11. My buddy and I decided to make the easy ride to the summit of Pelican Butte. The majority of the trails are flat graded roads but it is an impressive 3800' verticle climb to the summit. Ready to go! Several creek crossings on the way. Still a little snow on the way up The cinder in the soil causes the snow to look blood red this time of year. Great views from the +8000' summit On the way down we took a trail that has a little mud where we found two guys on sport quads having a tough time. My tire fell into a very deep rut and caused me to slowly roll over and crawl around in the mud.
  12. We went with a desent sized groop this morning and made a scenic 30mi loop. No exciting crashes or rollovers this time, just some ATVers enjoying some great trails before the Forest disService shuts us out of the land. The mountain on the far right was the one we rode to the top of last weekend. Great views of Klamath Lake. Looking back tword town about two ridges away. A good group and a good place for a lunch break. The locals enjoying our leftovers. A good place to stop. More views from the trail. Things starting to get a little dusty. All in all it was a great tirp.
  13. A very good friend of mine who lives 100mi away and has been working another 100mi further away called and wanted to ride his quad. I quickly got on the phone and we put together the dust bowl ride to the Chase mnt lookout. Getting ready. With the thunder storms at night there were quite a few lightning fires around, a lot of the smoke was coming in from No. California. Dave and his bike. He had a hard time in the beginning but was very comfortable by days end. The tower There was a guy manning the tower that day so he invited us up to look around. Smoke all around Shasta in the background above the smoke We had one minor mishap on the trip. Super Don lost his transmission so we headed back to help him load up. After the load up a few of us ran over to a play area we call the moon. It is very soft and flowery in the summer and EXTREMELY slimy in the winter, not to mention it is steep all around. It is very technical and I will have to get better pictures of it sometime. Jackonager learning to use his diff lock. He is new but learning fast. We had a great BBQ at a buddies house after words....mmmmm Tritip.... Later that night we were treated to a great sunset. Great ride and even better friends.
  14. My buddy decided he HAD to have new Can-Am Renegade X so we needed to get out and break it in. Don afraid to get it dirty. He is not the most experienced rider and we could not talk him into a smaller quad so we came prepared. What a great place to unload and head up the creek. Steve with his happy face. We made our way through a cinder pit and the boys had to climb it. Dad refusing to be cold. Up the creek we found a little snow, some of the roads and trails we have used in the past were blocked off so we made our way the long way around. Here is one of my favorite places to camp and fish, seems like a good place for lunch. What a crew! About to get whacked with a stick for throwing snowballs We had a great ride back down the other side of the creek and messed around in a play area. Don getting over the new quad feel and decides to get a little dirty. He soon realizes being wet is cold. All in all it was a great ride. It is amazing how little snow is here in January.
