That's kind of fun if you got to play with tools and destroy something. The power company got to do the destruction on my back lawn, several bushes, and pavers to install the new underground service, and all I got to do was watch it happen. Then I did get to ride Idlewild, but it was still a mess when I got back.

Yeh, it was kind of fun, scary when the dinky lift is extended all the way. I didn't break anything, but I was very nervous, the big tree I had to take down was about 60 feet tall and the lift only went up to 40, my legs were trembling when I made that cut.
Sorry about your house Steve, looks like you have some work to do for a change JK!!!

Hope to get to ride with you soon, guys, can't wait!!!

Thanks Bruno! We had a lot of fun this weekend riding and hanging out. Peter's shenanigans had us laughing all the way home. Next time I think Ill just walk around with water inside an empty beer bottle so he thinks it's beer..

Yeah, good job guys. I think Peter was just trying to kill the pain from his big klash

No, that was Aaron. He took a digger on his bicycle and his Slovak doctor prescribed this - so he tells me;

Yep, was very impressed with the whole gang, particularly John, Matt, and Paul. Lots of hard riding, no real damage/pain, some manly partying (until we got tired about 7pm). I loved the trails too - all in all the most fun I have had in a long while!
