And with all the bad luck, whatever became of Melissa? Did all of this adventure chase her off or is there potential for more?

Great read

Way to tell about the adventure.

Hope you have many more and come back here to write about them. Of course, you should remember that most of us are dirty old men, and pictures of women should ALWAYS be included.

I haven't seen Melissa since then. I spoke to her once or twice on the phone, but I believe she's spending the rest of the summer in Massachusetts, so it'll be a while before we see each other again...if ever.

Great report. Now go buy a camera and take pics next time!


btw I used to ride MTB's all over reddish knob. Unless its changed the only motor-vehicle-legal road to the top is the main road. The other route is for hikers/mtbs/horses. It gets more and more technical as you go up. The last quarter mile or so near the top is all rocks and frankly would be impossible to ride on a ninja and extremely difficult at best on a full blown dirt bike. I was running expert class DH races and had difficulty transversing it on the MTB! This was all late 90's though and things may have changed, though your pics look sorta familer....


have fun and keep up the adventures and storytelling

You realize he shared that story in 2008. His children are starting school this year.

And what is it about a GPS screen that convinces people that there are roads where there actually aren't?
