Went and rode Day 1 Tech today - the Three Tower power line section. With the shortage of rain, almost all the water sections are no more than footpeg height, if not completely dry. I noticed the deep spot which some people augered into, and I was lucky not to get caught up in it myself, though it was just a deep trough now. No water or mud in it.

Those rubble hillclimbs were tricky on my DR, but not a big problem.

There were hill climbs up there? Huh... Stagehand, do you remember any hills

I'm sure my Rhinoceros will be up for the challenge..... I'll have tow straps with me again




Hope that waitress is still working up there, single now..... I'll have to brush up on my french









Is it June yet?

These are the only two I got.

Hills? what hills? I only remember lots of little rocks in a big pile. Sometimes surrounded by all my stuff :

Oui, je vais parler beaucoup francais, si tu plait.

Looked like that kind of spot... I'm sure it would be tricky after a storm or in the Spring.
