Forums Trip Reports The Backyard, Zillertal Österreich Re: Re: The Backyard, Zillertal Österreich November 23, 2014 at 11:05 pm #666334 SPLITRIPPIN 709 Posts TeamSPLiT, Funny you posted the day I was going riding here in the midwest with Brian Wolfe. Brian was a huge part of The Backyard at it’s inception. He’s back home here for the holidays. Funny thing is…Brian lives in Mayerhofen now with his German wife. I miss Austria…I can’t wait to get back! When I go back…I want to live at a hut in the mountains when I do. Do you know of any contacts that allow for people to stay at rustic mountain huts for extended periods? I want to be able to establish myself at a base camp up in the alpine. vs. having to depend on a car to get up to a starting point.
