Yeah, just another 10min away.

Damn, my pillow is that size. My lease is up on my loaner camp gear so I may have to invest soon. I'm on the fence with a 20* or 0* synthetic bag. The 20* has been perfect with the exception of a couple cold nights BUT, I learned later that I was wearing way too many layers for body heat to emanate. So, maybe the 20* is fine.

I was looking for an overnight ride this weekend but it's so damn hot I think I'm heading for the river instead................

How about Big Bear? Wifey wants to go see some friends that just bought a place on the lake. I would love to show up Sunday morning covered in dirt and grime for brunch on their deck.

Aww, that sounds cool but I'm leaving for the river tonight. I don't have summer gear together yet so I roast picking up the Gs on that BB single track. There were a couple riders that flaked earlier that mentioned Bear so I'll hit you up when we actually go!

Next time .... and by the way, we don't ride the single tracks up there, our bikes are too big

I guess I forgot to put in the smiley to indicate sarcasm. There.

I rode Vista on the 8gs... is that 'single track'? I don't want to get slammed for sharing, but I'm pretty proud of myself for making it through there by myself. It was one of my more gnarly experiences on this bike. You guys have ridden with me. I'm no superman. Pretty amazing what these bikes will do with a mere mortal on board. On another ride, I watched a giant Canuck (even bigger than you, T!) get a 990adv airborne over a log and make it look like a trials bike. He has some single track videos on that bike too. It's all relative I guess.

Big Bear overnighter soon. I love our little island in the sky.

Nothing but Starbucks runs for me for the next month + . Time to heal up, not a wreck, just need to mend.

So if'n you guys are doing just street rides I am up for that.

Our central air unit died yesterday...only 97 degrees. A six thousand dollar day.
AC compressor and furnace are only about 40 years old.

EDIT: Anybody got a good residential HVAC guy in Orange County?
