    The living quarters for the wife and I are very small and barely adequate for the 2 of us; however, i'm about haf complete in remodeling the shop under the house and about to fire up the rocket stove I just built.

    You may stay in the shop in lieu of hotel- we haven't found any near here.

    FatNelly wouldn't sleep in the shop at first, so I've fixxed it up real nice with a light bike motif and everything..

    Don't let the anchor and globe decal on Perry's truck throw you off Army dude, but a trip up to his mountain is well worth it.


    When the leg is healed up, I'll come join you for some Big Bear fun :ricky

    bigT-
    somewhere I read that you were stalling/milking this injury...
    A fella was supposed to be sending you healing/positive thoughts and energy.
    Are you taking advantage of that?
    It works

    Fatty only visited me once so far and hasn't expressed any interest in returning.
    When I led, the dust bothered him- i let him lead and he didn't like me on his ass..
    I catered to all those so called cnf fast guys. After a few rides, they all had excuses- and after I got my light bike, no one ever wanted to play again.

    So I moved

    lol charcoal. It is a travesty, and I feel very bad for the forest and life residing within it. Heal fast cnf. (moment of silence and positive thoughts)

    But if this is the new cnf, where are they?

    As incredible as this place is, i'm already looking at the map considering another move to a locale where folks use their bikes for something other than holding their garage floors down.

    Everything points to SanDiego because thats where fatty is and he rides ALMOST daily and he has MAD SKILLS

    POSITIVE ENERGY WORKS! Last ortho visit had the doc checking the x-rays to make sure he had the right ones. Way ahead of schedule :D

    I just got back from a ride over to twin peaks on hwy 18. (rim of the world)

    the visibility was about 100 yards and light sprinkles.
    Fast moving fog coming up from san b valley and over the rim is quite a spectacle!

    when i walked in the door, I checked the weather and Lake Arrowhead under a weather advisory.

    Sounds like riding weather?

    Fellas,
    PLEASE be careful if you are riding the tarmac around the arrowhead area. LOTS of rock slides, many in blind corners.
    Big equipment out trying to clean up and adding to the mix.
    I saw one deposit as big as a car blocking an entire lane
