Is your son coming again? I guess no need for practicing for us any more. I was going to bring my daughter to judge this time but little worried what if Pluric or Infidel will show up. She is over twelve.

If you decide to go, I could pick you up in SLC.
I'm not technically a utard but I have been out that way and did some epic high speed desert riding. I've never ridden trials but maybe in march I could come out and help you with the course and help you pick the best lines.

I was going to bring my son, he seems to be a fair and unbiased judge. As for my daughter, she turns 12 this Saturday so not sure.

I'm a grandfather for hell's sake, now Infidel/Walrus could be a potential concern. Does your
daughter have any pets? Make sure she does not bring them.

I'm a little jealous I sold the trials bikes. The trials people were such a friendly group.
There was competition, but layed back good humor type.

I am sure you could find some room in your garage for one more

Just bring some extra candy. Your truck should hold more than your car trunk.

Broke my leg on one. Vapor locked twice on them. Doctors had no idea what the cause was.
So I sold them. Apparently heat, age and fat don't mix well.

Maybe I'll talk to a couple of my sponsors and see if they'll help me get onto a trials bike. It does look fun and I know I'd be good at it

It's pretty addicting. The thing I like was it could take such a small geographic area to play.
Fano's pallet pile or a front porch with steps can entertain for a long time. I'd see some of the
neighbors landscape rocks and be so tempted.

I was going to be an ass and say "Not as much as your wife did." But as the kinder gentler me I won't.

It actually looks more like Dutch treat at the Vernal Drive Inn movie.
I take that back, the girl has teeth.

By the look on her face I assume you had aready undressed.

She appears to be in camo. So how did the Prom go?

Your car must be a rental, it still has a trunk lid.

( you know I love you man)
