    Was wondering the same thing. Especially after reading the description of Slovenia in the newest Outside magazine:

    "Slovenia packs Mediterranean beaches, more than 87 hot sprints, rugged peaks in the 9,000 foot Julian Alps, 6,000 miles of trails, and 40-plus ski resorts into an area about the size of New Jersey." Not to mention Sandra Marinovic.

    I was ready to see if he had an extra spot on the couch.

    He was on the board the other day. Must not be riding or he is riding so much, he can't take any pictures.

    Chuck, I'm with you! I checked it out on the map this winter. Pretty cool variety of geography crammed into a relatively small country.

    You must get some good milage out of your tires seeing that you only ride one at a time. LOL....Love the pictures by the way.

    Okay, you get my vote for the best pictures. Do you know how much elevation change a typical ride has for you? I know it's all different but you are riding some steep stuff in both directions. Thanks for the pics. It's nice to see how other countries look.

    We're in the Nashville, Tennessee area. Usually moderate climate. Yesterday, Smyrna (another Nashville outlying town), had the highest recorded temp in the U.S. at 109 (I guess, excluding the areas in the midst of forest fires). Fortunately for us, the humidity has been between 12 and 20%. It's usually around 90% which makes 90 degrees pretty miserable. It's up to 39% now and to reach 100 degrees today. Hell. We need prayer for rain.

    Are these taken on "public lands" or private? These look awesome! Do you see a lot of cave entrances? I know that some of the deepest (and coldest) caves in the world are in Slovania. Are there many mountain bikers in the area or mostly hikers? If some of us came over, could you show us around??? Yes - I'm serious. Would a 4 inch (100 mm) travel XC 29'er bike be enough, or do you need a more all mountain (5-6 inch travel - 140 - 160 mm) bike? I assume that there are good places to camp in the area.

    On our mountains are more hikers ... mostly on the hills, which are near major cities and are easily accessible .

    On all other questions, the answer is: yes.
    I can also give you some contacts ...
