Update

-Enjoy the winter celebrations. We owe it all to the pagans anyway. -The cheesesteak bailed from his Powell adventure, so he and Ariel came down and we drank some tasty brew last night with… -Namrita and Eddie O’dea. Who were kind enough to let me show them around Granite basin in my idiosyncratic fashion. Great…More

Snow

I’m jealous of the fun the CO crew is having. I love forceful weather, of any kind, but snow storms are the best. Lamentably, I live in the wrong state.More

Soul ridin’

Today was an excellent day. I’ve just felt better and better as the day went on, and got in a good 1.5 hour exploratory ride this afternoon. Headed up an old fire road, then up another, then off on a motorcycle trail up a wash….. Ended up traversing drainage heads, still on the moto trail.…More

Back to work

This morning I work up with my normal first thought: damn I’m hungry. That hasn’t happened in three days, so I’m off to work again. Being sick makes me stir crazy, there isn’t much left to do in the house after the last two days. Now I can go enjoy winter.More

This is where I’d put a picture, if I had a camera. I’m psyched to be derailleurless again. I may be pushing things to run out of town and play in the cold this weekend, on a brand new build, but damn the torpedos… Gotta kickstart.More
