I gotta admit, I was feeling pretty nervous to ride after getting beat up earlier in the week, I’d already wussed out of going up to ID to ride a poker run with Chaz (which ended up being too good for words I hear), but when Rich called on Friday night to see if anything was up, I decided to give it a shot. I’m glad I did, it ended up being a beautiful day and after a handful of vitamin-I and a few minutes in the saddle I started loosening up.
Conditions were fantastic. Apparently I missed the pic-of-the-day when Tunes went down in the pond in Gibson Basin, bummer. Ranger Dip still has a ton of fallen trees, we cut what we could with my little handsaw, but that trail really needs to have a chainsaw run through it. Some of the logs were fun, but it started being a pain after so many. It was fun to ride with a couple of guys I’ve never ridden with too. What started out as just Rich and me on Friday night at 9pm ended up being 7 guys ready to ride at 7am the next morning. Pretty cool what a couple of txt messages can turn up, thanks for the fun ride!
Crew: Rich, Nate, Zac, Brock, Josh, Ken, and me.
