This is very cool! Nice peaceful ride and some food to enjoy. We all need a happy place from time to time. Looks like you found a good one.
Jeannie and I would pack lunches and explore on the XTs. So this brings back fond memories. Now we've expanded into 4WD adventures. We disappear up into the mountains to hike, climb, ski and explore. Ahead of time we make bucket meals and hobo pockets and load them into the cooler. Then fill the thermos will soup. Easy to prepare a nice dinner heated up on a small propane grill.
It can take 1 to 1-1/2 hours to get back into town from the mountains. When you're done exploring that's too long to wait for something to eat. So we evolved this system of a meal in minutes. Also high winds, rain and snow need to be dealt with. From the back deck of the car we can cook. And not a soul around either.
The XTs remain good trail bikes and we just go out for rides on them now. We used to pack dinner and load that into the van for an after the ride meal.
