re: Consider a Pyrenees dog - hogfly
They seem to have a significant issue with wandering if they are kept outside and aren't working dogs. My brother lived in the country and had a pair of them, and they'd wander crazy distances (like 10 miles or more). They're an absolute pleasure as far as temperament, though. I don't think the w...

re: Gravity Mountain Biking - hogfly
First top to bottom POV run released from the Hardline Tasmania course. It's Jackson Goldstone and Laurie Greenland of the Santa Cruz Syndicate. Jackson is leading and talking through the run but it flashes back to Laurie's POV cam occasionally to get a better perspective. Insane that Goldstone can ...

re: Flyfishing question - hogfly
Those saying the reel is just a line holder haven't 1) fished for big trout with fine tippet 2) fished for even bigger fish that make your reel scream. But yeah.. for most fishing with a 4-6 weight, you don't necessarily need a great reel. But when you need it... (above scenario with a big fi...

re: 2023-2024 Ski Thread - hogfly
Did two days boarding at Red River over the weekend. I haven't ridden a snowboard in over 20 years (I'm 50 and moved away from Colorado 20 years ago), so that was fun. :lol: Picked it right back up without problem and had a blast. A little sore today. Red River isn't a big mountain, obviously...

re: Gravity Mountain Biking - hogfly
Yeah. The basic rundown of events: Pure Racing/Timed Events: Downhill: 1 run for time on a single track. Enduro: basically downhill stage racing. You might do 5-10 tracks in a day. You might be "on course" for 8 hours but only put down 30 minutes of "timed runs" as you pedal/transition to t...

Gravity Mountain Biking - hogfly
I thought I'd test the waters on this sport and see if there's any interest. I already participate in a bunch of other forums for this, but I dig the culture here at TD... so why not. :lol: First big global event of the year is going to be Red Bull Hardline in Tazmania which will take place Febr...

re: The new Kanye album is actually good. - hogfly
I have a road trip this weekend and might make myself finally listen to this. Sounds like the distributor is trying to take it down, though, due to some dispute with Kanye. I always think I'm done with him, then he does something like It's Almost Dry or Kids See Ghosts and pulls me back in. Ag...
