    I knocked out about 20 miles on the mountain bike this weekend in and around Moab. That place is a zoo, the moon was bright and our campsites along the reef were superb.

    One night above Labyrinth, one night at the Maze Overlook and one in The Land of Standing Rocks. Busy weekend, but so awesome to finally have been at this spot for golden hour.

    I do work as a professional river guide in the Summer in Idaho. There would be no possible way to do that many trips on those rivers if you didn't work on them, the permits are too difficult to get. So perhaps that disqualifies me from the challenge as my employment earns me bad nights unlike that vast majority of weekend warriors that are on this site.

    I wouldn't disqualify it! I just like to see where everyone has been, and I think it's awesome to see how much time people spend out in the outdoors, regardless of the nature of their bag nights.

    Maybe you missed the fine print? Here it is, blown up: ;)

    FINE PRINT: There is no prize other than the one you enjoy by spending many nights under the stars. But then again, maybe sometimes there could be if we have something laying around like a shirt or a beanie. It has happened once, maybe twice in the past. It may happen again, but who knows. All rules are subject to change at anytime and for any reason. May this 'challenge' inspire you to sleep outside more often. :)

    Rain and cloudy skies put a damper on work trails this weekend, but on the bright side, I finally took the time to check out the John Wesley Powell Museum in Green River. I also finally tried out the way over-hyped burgers and service at Ray's Tavern. Still a nice weekend out in the desert. Lots of nice yellow cottonwoods still.
