Howdy boys and girls. Not that my adv internet presence has been missed--I feel like it's been ages since I poked my head up, but it has been winter, sort of at times, and riding has been thin--I thought I'd peek out from hibernation. I'm hoping my riding opportunities this year won't be too limited given that a sizable chunk of my free time will be spent building our house out here, that Susi and I will then move into, becoming more or less full-time Gorge residents around the end of the year. Over the past 4 months I've been busy designing, getting set up with subs, etc.; and I just picked up my building permits a couple days ago. Below is a rendering of my design. Those who've been by my property will recognize the existing red barn garage that we've been using as our weekend place for years.

When you take Ketchum all the way to the powerlines, you can drop down to Mill Creek on Hedges Grade. That one's a treat, and a good test of your rock riding skills
Sounds like I'll get to test the barkbuster handguards I put on last night!
