    Sure that's wise? Have you seen what that guy does to bikes?.. and helmets... and body parts?

    Hell.. last time we rode I had to show him how to finish mounting a trials tire.

    Hey Trev, It's going good, two more months and I should be riding again! I want a rematch with the Gas station quadtrack trail.

    Thump and mylsmkj, you guys always know how to make me sound like I have a brain injury. :lol3

    I'm working with KLIM on a new suit that has bubble wrap shoulder armor, a built in LifeAlert (IFAICGU) bracelet and "body recovery" attachment point. It's called the KLIMberly.

    We might be able to ride the rim, if you're interested in an exploratory mission.

    Maybe a camping trip is in order.
    Are these the closest places without snow?

    Rode Slickrock this afternoon, Fins 'n Things and Hell's Revenge are good to go. Moab Rim and Amasa Back are also good to go. I heard that Poison Spider was open....from a jeeper. Anything with clay is a mess, it's like mud season at a ski town.

    Getting out of inversion hell!:freaky

    uhg!!! figures... I have at least ten straight days of roof shoveling ahead of me. I suspect about the time we hit the last roof it will either dump again or you guys will go into another arctic freeze cycle....UHG! Two of us just spent 5 full days on 1 roof.:huh It is good to see the $/snow finally, up til this storm I was making more playing music than I was working my real job:lol3

    How is the snowpack in the Abajos? less than average still? I've been having wet dreams about a certain trail...:wink:

    Abajo's are way low still. We got 16" in the La Sal's a couple of days ago, maybe Tuesday. At this rate we might be able to ride a certain trail in late Feb. early March. I hope the $/snow keeps coming over there but this weather keeps it up here and we pile up snow above 7500'.:lol3

    Of course, we're shooting for the last weekend in the month (get in on the 28th ride through sun). Waiting to hear if one of the Texans can come along, he's pretty entertaining in a "I can make that" sort of way :D
