    I thought you snow skied?..........................................or do you just do that in warm weather? :lol3

    It was 19f when I left my house this morning..............................I'm pretty sure I heard my bike moan when I cracked the throttle on the short stretch of the county road heading into town.

    I'm no old timer here in Boise. We've called this home for about 11-12 years. I don't recall it ever being this cold during that time. It was 2 degree f. on our back deck this morning. As luck would have it, the antifreeze solution in the old truck seems to have lost its -- anti -- I think the thermostat froze. During a run to the store, it began to overheat and the vent hole on the overflow bottle was squirting solution. There was an unusual sound coming from the area of the engine where the thermostat is located. I hope I didn't crack the head or blow a gasket.
    I'm not big on wrenching in the cold. I had my fill of that in the army.

    The road I wanted to ride got about 2" of snow over the last few days. Hiked part of it with the dogs and it was a slippery sumbitch in places where the puddles had frozen over. Can't see 'em because of the sugar snow on them.
    Saw lots of coyote tracks, one fresh set of bobbie tracks, and a probable set of big cat tracks. Was trying to get a close look when all four dogs came over to see what I was looking at..... :huh
    Think I'll go predator calling next weekend.
