Although we hand cut a few small logs, I couldn't help but think how nice a day it was to be breezing along without a jacket with predictable soil under my tires and the trail clear of the tangle of downed trees that will be waiting for us again in the spring. I was content to end the season (for Donner) with that ride.

I hope you get good conditions. It's certainly going to be cooler next week.

How could I forget that, I went from a 14 to a 12 tooth on the CRF, changed my lovable woman to a crazy bitch, had me on my back twice in the first 10min. Shearboy was dragging me around by the scruff on my neck all day, picking me up, dusting me off, straightening my helmet, then howling "right there mate, the trail's right there" and "just let the thing tractor" yeah right. One of the best days of riding that year.

But it gets better, the kid might come with! He's never ridden in snow, should be even more entertaining!
