    Just dropped my wife and kids off at the airport on their way to Ireland for the Summer. My goal this summer is to do ride out of town every weekend until they come back in August. Flagstaff, White Mountains, CA, CO...it's on. The bike is down right now, but hoping to get her on the road by this weekend with some updated suspenders.

    So, anyone interested in weekend rides, I'll be heading out Fridays after work and I'm flexible on destinations as long as I can be back by Sunday/Monday.

    I am always open sat-tues. and now looks as if my entire summer schedule is open. Ahh fresh single life. So I will be joining in with a few of yours. Especially if your going to do some camping. One place I would like to do is a ride up to Zion National park. So I will have to catch up since you depart on friday, but I get off 530am an sat. so I think I could do it.

    Maybe you can impact test my new Excel front rim. :D

    I'm not much for manual labor, but I'll give you a shout if I'm heading north.

    I'm praying to the UPS gods that my fork springs and seals get here asap.

    The next trials event is August 31st at Jones Crossing. This saturday is national trails day, and our club will be doing volunteer trail work near Old Munds Highway.

    You know, Rick, I still maintain my innocence regarding your wheel. But, if if was me, I blame the bike. I'm not a fast enough rider to dent your rims. :norton

    I got the house in Camp Verde. The deal closes the 16th. If I can bribe the wife I should be able to get a weekend here and there. Let me know when you are heading north and I will try to join ya.
