Now I'm hooked!!!!
Damn you David!!! Spent the whole morning catching up on your adventure as I should be tending to my routine duties. Loving your updates and was impressed with your reference to Deer Tick,(I catch live shows when I can).
I live out west and have passes to three different Tahoe mountains with conditions either bony as can be or non-existent and no snow in the furthest outlook with temps in the mid 50's every day. Back on the bike again until the snow flies and will find a way to continue on through your Bike Trip Porn.
Stay safe my friend.
