A buddy of mine works on fire apparatus and was talking with the fire chief at Chester Gap. Said the fire that was smoking out Flint hill yesterday was started by an outdoor wood stove. Evidently they have an automatic ash dump that dumps into a pan underneath the enclosed unit. The pan was full and they figure some embers mixed with leaves and the rest is history.
That fire burned up and over the top of the mountain and down the East slope a ways.

A few pics from a couple old men out riding...


Above Todd Lake, the road was closed, so we went around toward Elkhorn Lake instead.



The roads were pretty good for the most part


There was still ice in some places


Stay in the wheel tracks


Ice receding in reserviour









It was kinda slippery out, but it was fairly predictable and a hell of a lot of fun sliding around out there. We were eating those trails for lunch. Some of you know what I'm talking about. For the rest of you it means we were either wide open or hard on the brakes. I haven't had this much fun in so long it seems like a distant memory. And the amazing thing is both Peacerider and I are 50++ If only we could be this experienced and still have the bodies we had in our early twenties -

That's alright; a girlfriend is more fun than some fancy camera
