    No slow motion. I'm just old n slow.
    Gary asked at one point.
    Is this a deer trail. I was thinking no but I saw a squirrel run through here once. :D

    Tooks the 250x out on the Knapp Creek Dice run. I'd say bikes were 5% of the vehicles there.
    Some really good hill climbs there. Last 5 miles was super nasty, rutty, rooty stuff that just took your front wheel wherever it wanted. The Rekluse clutch on the bike saved me more times than I can count.

    Hit this deer. She ran out from behind a sign. No time to react.
    All is good. Got 300 miles on the new Kenda Big Block rear. I really like this tire so far.

    The elk were everywhere. I've never seen a wild bull elk before. Not even out west. A few nice ones walked rite across in front of me. When I hit the deer there was a bull bugling in the trees rite behind the church.
