Nose drippings

Say hi to the bridge repair guys, one bridge left to finish from the flood damage of June 08. I've made 53 century trips on this dirt trail this year, so we've seen each other a lot. Good fellas.
Snow mobiles are cutting a trail.

Bar Mitts rock. That every year problem of frozen fingers has been solved. I put one of those chemical warmers in each Bar Mitt. Was 25F out and I rode with fingerless summer biking gloves and was plenty warm. The annual frozen fingies has been remedied.

Only one rider before me. Oh wait that was me from last week end.

How Bizarre. Riding along and saw this pair of sun glasses crushed. Then I realized they were mine. I must have dropped then Sunday after I took them off and stuck them in my neck band. and didn't realized I lost them. Well I was able to salvage the lenses, I have another pair they will work on.

Rode 6 hours today at a whooping 7 mph average. Crunching through snow, on a one horse open sleigh. with the fat studs on. I am out of gas, all that snow riding was quite a workout. My knees are whooped, stiff, I need to look at what is not adjusted right on my recently new hardtail. Back to the trail this weekend.
Good rides to you.

Wow, you rode 6 hours today? Good for you Dave. I wish we had trails around my area, but all the trails close to cross country skiing. Tainter Lake is our only chance for snow riding.

Wow, you have a trail named after you? This trail

that I rode today is open to snow mobiles and skiers too. Today I did not see one biker, skier, or snow mobiler. So the solitude was peaceful.
