I actually despise north face, however, a former employee left his new hoodie in my truck for like 3 weeks, so I kept it. It was the warmest outer layer I could find to wear over my pressure suit today.

Thanks for leading!

He also gave a school on road side flat tire repair (Notice the make shift swing arm jack )
I can tell from here you are doing it wrong. I spent the day at Briarcliff watching the boys ride and wishing I was riding with you guys.

I considered calling you to come help, I was extra careful to keep the bearings out of the dirt this time....I had a 21" tube and some radial tire patches I had found in a house we cleaned out, I decided to try the patch, rubber cemented the shit out of it and hoped for the best, still holding.

We had a good ride, despite the rain and tire failure. I need to figure out how to link up the roads south of Martinsburg better, had too much pavement in there. I also will say that the log across SQ where is was blocked is a bitch to cross, I almost bit it hard trying to show off....

It was a pleasure to meet you Steve.

And I don't even smoke. Well not first hand anyway.

It must be from all those damn 2 stroke smokers in front of me all the time. :(

It couldn't possibly be from never exercising or being over weight.

That's funny, because Matt's wife made a crack at him for wearing North Face before we left. I believe she called him a douche...was that correct, Matt?

By the way, after watching the first half of the video in high definition I can say, "yes, someone has obviously tried to regrade the road coming up away from the river. A year ago it was much worse."

I've got a couple routes that keep you in max. gravel from Danville down around Martinsburg and on into Dresden...did a lot of scouting to do just that very thing I think I still have them saved if you want 'em.

BTW, love the hoodie...very Chipotle urban-yoot look ya got there.

My hobbies just bounce all over. I'll learn one thing, get fairly well involved, then move on. Jobs seemed to follow suit. Id have given up the driving thing a long time ago if it wasn't for the money and job security. Now days I spend as much time in the office and yard as on the road. If I just drove it would be much less stressful. Ive been under a trailer before at 5-10 below changing brake chamber in a suit with coveralls on over them just to get guys moving and on time before. Washed my hands and headed off to a meeting.

With the size of college girls anymore you'd have to take 10-12 of them to make up for a single girl.
