Here goes...What do the rest of you grey beards do to dtay in reasonalbe condition to horse the GSA around on the steep dirty stuff?
Last week, I went to Arizona and found a nice canyon to explore. Jeep trail at about 19% grade with run-off gullys running diagonally across the path. Never tried anything like that before but, what the heck, it's why I bought a GS!
No problems except for getting really tuckered out.
The temps weren't high - 92F and humidity around 12% and I was well hydrated and fed. The distance was approx 5 miles up and then back down. So, I was just tired not anymore sore than normal.
What daily routines are being used by you good folks? I can not run due to trashed knees but I can and do (try) to walk.
Of course the bottom line is that it was a blast , no damage incurred and I can't wait to do some more dirt!
