    Going to be beautiful tomorrow in the 100 acre wood.
    Anyone want to play hooky and wander around Brandon Byrne a little?
    Maybe meet at Pakim Pond at 10?

    Sorry I couldn't make Wednesday. That's a work day for me. Will try and make your hooky day next week.

    Today was spectacular. 50 degrees, no wind, a little rain last night to "treat" the surface, AND NO BUGS!

    Sorry if anyone went to Pakim Pond at 10. I was a little late because I was trying to find a duck in Double Tree....

    Here are some photos and videos:

    Looks like it was a great day to get out riding - Was your 4th picture taken off of Butterworth road?

    No, it was near the One Pond Canoe access in Double Tree. Did not go on the fire cut. That's illegal, and it went a little too close to the police barracks, where they were doing target shooting!

    Are those pits legal to ride in? The Presidential Lakes Pit looks like it would be fun to ride in.

    The road that comes off of Mt. Misery road that goes by it is legal, but I don't think you are supposed to play in the pits. Except during the BBB enduro.

    Cool. Will look for you.
    Yeah, this time of year, the ride to the start is usually the most challenging. By 10:00, it warms up to nice.

    Had a great ride yesterday with @docgonzo. Weather wasn't too cold and the trails were excellent. One of the last trails gave us a fun challenge since the sand was a bit deeper than some of the other areas we were riding. Doc breezed through on his Africa Twin and I took a few spills on my DR. I had my GoPro out using a chest mount which made for a nice stable picture, but it was mounted too low so the bike cockpit takes up a large portion of the screen. I'll edit together a quick video and post sometime this week.

    I can probably do Thursday morning at 10 at Atsion. I'm on call Wed., so it sort of depends on whether anything is left over that has to be done on Thurs.
    But tentatively, I'll be there at 10. I have a track for the West side of 206 if we need it. Some nice deep sand over there!

    I'll bring the little bike, but you should bring the Cagiva to balance out the difference in abilities! Then, maybe I can keep up with you! :-)
