Yep. Thanks Guy, I found the pictures. They were from the 1st Annual Black Ice Ride February 9, 2013 at Jeff Munn's place. These shots are from the Germany Valley Overlook.











Here's one from the north end of Blue Grass Valley looking south on the back side of Snowy Mountain I think.



Here's a link to this year's ride report on the 1st Annual Black Ice Ride. I'm hoping we get to do it again this coming February.

You are kind. Apparently I just need to ride those two valleys more to keep them better distinguished in my mind.

Madstrom I'll have to see if Chuck is game to do a winter ride with the old man.
You can count me in old man. Just make sure I don't roll down any more hills.

If I remember correctly we were supposed to stay at one of those cabins until we got an offer we couldn't refuse. Thanks Jeff.

+1, as I missed the earlier chatter about it. I would like to go and I may try and bring the wife and 2 year old also. Probably not, as he will talk during the whole thing and get crazy excited by it.

Guy that's really scary about your neighbors garage.. Glad it didn't spread to anything else. I'm always afraid of my ash bucket. After it sits a few days and bucket get stone cold I transfer to a trash bag and into my big can, I still roll it away from the house.

Straight up, I never knew this place existed. We're not movie folks (too freakin' expensive) and don't get out much. Think the last one we went to was 5 or so years ago..... and I don't even remember what it was.

Such a boring life.

That theater is barely a mile from my house. I am going to ask the MRS if I can go and if she wants to come with me.

Dang what an awkward time for a movie. Pretty sure I will be have church stuff going on. So much for making it out.

I started pricing stuff to fix my bike yesterday. Yikes brake rotors are expensive.

You could try to find a used one. I forgot the site I have used in the past but you put out what you are looking for and for which bike and they send your info to all the bike salvage people and if they have one they email you. Hard to guarantee the condition though.

I was thinking the same thing. I will see what I can do. Right now I am just hoping to attend the showing. We are hosting a family Christmas Party and have only that weekend to prepare for it so I am not sure how this is going to go down. Maybe I can swing burgers and beers before the show.

I was just joking. Sunday afternoon is not a good time for most. I'm not even sure I can make the showing.

But thanks for considering it....
