I missed the Pachaug crew, by the time I was finished with my parental duties which were bestowed upon me at 8:05 AM as I was leaving the house, Pachaug crew was done with the loop and loaded.

Met up with Maat and we explored some RR tracks behind Building 19, ended up in some giant dirt playground in Mass with 2 other bikes. Sand, mud, deep water, trash, jumps, rocks, woods... loads of fun!

Bikes were dropped, I have Video evidence :)

Cool, I had parental duties today as well. My 10 yo won his pack pinewood derby in January and was invited to regionals. We looked over the car, made a couple adjustments then proceeded to get wiped clean by cars that looked like they were made from a CNC machine and 3D printers. Oh well, we were 18 out of 37 for Weblos in Ct. Then I pulled the Rekluse (chainsaw parts as Rob says) out of the Beta so it can go to Maine next weekend. The bike not the clutch is going to Ma.

I love spending time with my Kid while he still not ashamed to hang out with his dinosaur Dad, but I had lined up the Pachaug loop time off in advance. Truck loaded, gear ready, kids transportation arranged (we carpool kids on Saturday to the Russian class with another couple) but apparently last night the other Dad got called in to work (doctor) and his Wife told my Wife at some point late in the eve, my wife didn't bother telling me till I was walking out the door 8:05am... so I was the only parent who was not working this morning and I had to take one for the team.

Just found this today. I have only been to Thomaston Dam and Pachaug on my 350EXC and look forward to more small bike riding. Subscribed

all that snow still at Jerimoth hill in the video, must be because of such a high elevation.

Went for a ride through "the city" this afternoon (it was too warm yesterday ). Had a fun run down Harris Avenue*, passed about 10 "hey doot" lowered Hondas going much too slowly, and two beautiful sportbikes taking that tight turn from Kinsley about to get their rocks off. Looks like levain is having work down at the west side bakery, hmm.

Even found some dirt!


Tucked away for parking when I went to the gym
Just my third time, and I learned that elliptical machines can go both forwards AND backwards. Man, backwards sucks.




*Harris Ave runs along the train tracks and is used for drag racing.

When I was young and beer was very important, I didn't even think Saturday or Sunday started before noon.
