I can play tour guide for CO, I need to return to the Rockies and throw down. I have a friend that lives in Boulder that can take us to the local stuff.

More riding, specifically, putting aside more time for riding.

Less stupid injuries. Try to avoid separating the shoulder _again_, and getting run into by other bikes.

Get my ass into better physical shape. Interval and long cardio training. More core work.

Try a harescramble, if I can get my fitness to the point where I think I might have a prayer of finishing it.

Well, you did try the hardest enduro in the Northeast.

Sandy Lane is coming up in a couple of months. That's a fun one, and I bet you could finish it.

I hope to see you at Unadilla again! You should try to shoot some local harescrambles, you seem to enjoy them.

Speaking of media, you might get a kick out of this..


ZimZooma edited this video from a little bit of footage we recored while riding at his house the other day. It's pretty limited, due to not having enough raw footage but He did a great job regardless.

In the beginning, you see a motorcycle in the air..... it was me jumping "the fiscal cliff" jump..... I ended up landing in deep snow and crashed

Winter riding is the best, plan on going again on Saturday.

New years resolutions: Not go to Afghanistan, spend more time with the kids, ride more, fly more, overcome my strange attachment to the wr250r in my garage, create some iOS apps, double the length of the trails at my house, shoot video with drones, grow food, and generally crunch the F&@# out.
