Ouch, your riding brethren are hurt by such tough language! It was an awesome ride, fast wet and fun!

It didn't stop all the mountain bikers or hikers we saw, nor the people living in the area from living their life...now crawl back in that hole! Lol

That was still my favorite Pachaug ride ever. It was also when Darius started putting other videos to shame. I'm in for a 9/15 Pachaug ride.

I was thinking of this video yesterday when I was driving down to the lot. It was pouring as bad as the shot in the lot before you guys took off. We waited for probably a 1/2 hour for it to let up before we took off. I think because we've had such a dry summer the puddles weren't that bad. Even the Shetucket tpke wasn't bad. Mt Misery was bone dry going up and the trail after was wet but not bad at all.

The one down fall of the day for was I swallowed a mosquito early on and couldn't cough the fucker up. I had EEE on the brain all day. I was so worried it took me 18 seconds to fall asleep last night and I almost didn't sleep like a baby all night and most of this morning. What were those symptoms again? I think I might be up to 5 of 6 now.

I don't think EEE can survive ingestion. That's just old age.


That rain ride was the best Pachaug ride ever.

So all that bleach I drank yesterday trying to kill it was for nothing?
