Doug calls it "Jones' Ladder" and the guy we rode with yesterday called it "Jacob's Elevator". I call it "steeper than a cow's face". I also call it "never again".

Here is the elevation profile of yesterday's ride.

You know it's steep when the rock you kick loose passes the guy in front of you.

I’m sorry I didn’t give you a call, but I am glad that you brought that up.

The truth of the matter is that trying to coordinate more than 4 riders quickly becomes a pain in the dick. If no one posts up about a ride I have no idea who is up for a ride. Now I could text everyone but that is where the pain starts. You can image that texting four people an average of four to five texts a piece makes me look like a fifteen year old female with my face in my phone (the skinny pants were bad enough when I am wearing skinny pants AND texting it’s way too much. I’m like “OMG she did not just say that” and she’s like “OMG”; and I’m like “yeah I know, OMG”; and then she’s like “Yeah, whatever”; . . . Next thing I know 45 minutes have passed and absolutely no information has been transmitted ).


On top of that the pastor at our Saturday night church really hates when I text through her sermon.

Now amplify the texting with rider X wanting to ride trail Y at 10:00; when rider P wants to ride trail Q at 10:30. To simplify the whole shebang a bang I plug everything in the equation:


You can image what this process was like before I discovered to utility of the Bernoulli number! Where the sum of i to the p from i to n equals the time and the location of the ride in binary when using the a base 2 mathematical system.*

At any rate I have decided to simplify matters.

If you are up for a ride anywhere at anytime simply post up.

If you want to ride a specific place at a specific time simply post up.

If someone contacts me in regards to a ride, I’m going.

If no one posts up I will assume I am riding by myself.

If you are particular whom you ride with don’t post to the list.

If multiple groups are riding in multiple areas that is great! Try to coordinate it to reduce the chance of a head on collision.

If you never want to ride with me but you still ride in the area and want to post pictures of your epic ride, then post up.





*(I honestly do not know what any of that shit is I just copied it from Wikipedia).
