    Well my 4 months of unemployment is coming to an end in a week. Which means I'm going to be riding as much as possible this week.
    If anyone else wants to pair up for a ride this week/weekend, I ride hood river, jones creek near Washougal, or browns camp area.
    I'm planning on hood river today at about 10-11.

    It's the first day of summer, and my buddy and i are breaking out the 640's to celebrate it! Planning on hitting up Wilderness (via short cuts) then bop over to the Powerline trail later this evening. Planning to hit some hard to find single track while we're at it? Maybe we'll come back through Scappoose at the end of the evening...or maybe we'll shortcut are way back home? Who cares, i just want to ride!

    Anyone heading to TSF this weekend remember it's Devils Head weekend and Diamond Mill is pretty much closed for the event.

    Sunday there will be some of us riding in the Jordan Creek area. Probably staging from Ben Smith. (TBD) around 9am. This will be a single track ride, smaller the bike, the better.

    *Edit* 9am, not 10am, meeting at Ben Smith (its in the shade)

    Anyone riding EARLY Saturday or Sunday? Looks like a hot one and it would be great to get half the ride done while it was still cool!

    On FB I just saw a picture of the bridge at the washout. Looks like one end has moved and it might not be usable. NWAdventure is heading up there Saturday to see if it is save able.

    Met some folks at High Rocks on Sunday that rode over the bridge on Abbott. A bit concerning he said, given the condition of it. Ollalie exit on 4220 reportedly still snow-filled but did not see with own eyes.
