Had the day off of work, so I went to Vietnam with my buddy Eric on Monday. We ended up exploring another side of this place that we had never been to before. For those who are wondering: Here is a GPS map of the area http://www.bvnemba.org/images/vietnam_map_1173_x_2244.jpg also here is a link to the NEMBA page: http://www.nemba.org/Articles/VietnamFAQs.html Curious as to the names of some of the drops/sections we were in. So if you can help out and let us know the names, that would be cool.

Anyways, I'm on the hardtail and my buddy is on the full suspension. All in all it was a great day of riding. Let me know what you think. Thanks for looking.

It was a really nice day, blue skies and sun made for good pictures (yay fast shutter speed and no blur!)!


Portrait of Eric:


Picture of me with a reflection of Eric taking the picture:












Steep roller, this one is always a good thrill:


No photoshop, just zooming out while he was riding. I kind of like the way this photo came out:


New trail looks like it will be fun:


Twisty log-ride:










Drops to flat :)


Hitting the jump:

Vietnam has lots of cool rock sections:

495 drop?:


Taken from a tree, eh not as cool as I would have liked, but the shot is still alright I suppose:










All ready for the next episode of Pimp My Ride:


I'm gonna pass on hitting this one for now, camera doesn't really do the drop (or gap) justice:




I really like this shot of Eric, pretty exposed rocky section... don't fall off!






And a couple of Artistic (maybe?) shots I took to end the thread




And one more photo taken by Eric:


Great day!

PS-Curious, is there any info on how long that car has been there

Nice pictures! Looks like a lot of fun stuff there!

Judging by the above picture it's a 92-94 S10 Blazer, doesn't look like it's been there more than a few years, but I've never ridden there, so I have no idea.
