Finally connected farmer to Butler main, with surprise guest

Ryan was cool enough to let me borrow his bike, pickup and gears and take my Montreal buddy for a ride up Farmer road, on my bike.  It took him a minute to get a hang of it, he almost crashed a couple of times but then he go ok and I took him through hell.

We first took farmer all the way to the power lines.  I played under the powerlines a bit with Ry’s bike while Jonathan was still getting a hang of the widowmaker.  We ended up going up toward Thugwell lake, through a trail I though was going to Epic Lake.  You know that river we had to cross right before a massive hill where we all bailed before?  (we encountered a couple of quads there once)  Well I took buddy there.  It’s a surprisingly steep hill…Lots of french swearing involved here…

We carried on to the top, took a right through a path we’ve been on a million times.   We carried on all the way to the top, past two massive ditch and a MASSIVE pile of rock that I never thought we’d cross.  We popped right next to what I think is Butler main.  There was also a couple of cars / pickups on the trail, so I decided to bailed back down toward Farmer.  We got lots a little on the way back (we ended up at Boyd’s pit), but carrying on under the powerlines (at some point its NOT easy because it’s just massive boulders) and found our way back to Farmer, not without a couple of scratches and a flat tire on Ryan’s bike (which reminded me that we need to watch the air in our tires; if they’re too soft, big rocks will hit the rim and blow the tube)
