    Greetings all,

    It's been the rainiest summer on the books in Alaska in over three decades. The choices? 1) Stay at home and carp about the weather, or
    2) Ride in mud up to your eyeballs

    This is a video of us sitting on the sofa, whining about the weather.

    Regards,

    Mr. BigWheel

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    The BigWheel is down for a suspension upgrade, which should easily bring it up to mid-level 1988 standards.

    We are just starting to get snow in the valleys, so the BW's will be back in business shortly.

    Can't wait.

    Regards,

    Mr. BigWheel

    Greetings from AK, Ben. The land where snow flurries are prevalent and temperatures drop below freezing at night.

    These are the conditions this week. Enjoy your blue skies and humane temps.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys.

    I especially appreciate that Warren Miller comparison, unless it is just because Mr. Miller is older than dirt at this point.

    How the heck did this thread end up back in circulation again?

    Quite strange. Strange indeed.
