The Rat is now here (He's under the rock he's sitting on in the pic):
Heads up, there are about 2 miles of unpaved road going to the tailrace area. Its nice smooth hardpack though, very pavement-like, so no trouble, and there's a paved parking lot at the end.
It was such a beautiful sunny day today, just begging for a ride, but if it weren't for the rat, I would have gone home much sooner
, I was cold! Even with my heated jacket and grips, I was shivering this morning with temps in the 40s (I needed more layers). You people riding in the snow are made of tougher stuff :)
