Headed to the W.R.T. today with Terry and Debbie. A couple of people bailed as it had rained all night. If i canceled rides for rain i would never ride. Anyway... We only rode a part of this trail from Jones creek, west. Super flowy with some nice wet roots and rocks. Up and down was the order of the day. The last climb where we turned around was one of the longer one's. It's always cool to ride in such a lush environment. We're planning to head back soon and do the whole thing. Can't wait!

Casey and i have going back and forth ,trying to get together for a ride so we decided on the Browns camp loop on a Wed. I picked up flying J and Crazy Jake and his two kids. I also had Otto and Louis with me. The day before Eirik PM'd me and said he would be into riding with us. That was cool to hear from him. We we're behind schedule from the start but we made it to the trail head. E. had been waiting a while ( thanks man) and the last i heard from Casey was that he was close. Of course he hadn't been there before so that was a problem. I took my time getting my kid's bike's and mine ready but no Casey. So we took off. ( sorry man) The ride was really fun. All the kid's did great. No fatality's or anything. Otto and Louis we're riding the tech sections like experienced riders. Great time! Flying J turned back into Crazy Leg's for a while so that was good to see. The goofiest thing was when Flying J's crank arm came off. Still clipped to his shoe!! Crazy. Great evening. I like long time.

The Red Raja and I headed up Fri night and arrived at 4am. Coyotes running around lot 1 which was cool, so we pulled over and slept for maybe 4 hours then hit the mountain. We did one lower mountain run and one from the top before we met up with friends from home, Whiplash, Mtnrider, and Grahmski. Then we did like 6 back to back runs from the top. We rode Freight trail, Original sin,No Joke, Side track, No Duff, A line, Dirt merchant, In Deep. When i was by my self once i rode Heart of Darkness, B line, Crank it up , Ho chi men, and some others. The weather was perfect. Blue sky's and dry dirt. It was so great riding IN DEEP with 4 great riders from home. We we're riding tight through all the roots and rocks (and they're was a lot) not knowing what was around the next corner. That the kind of trails i like. The kind that are trying to kill you. The Raja had the cool move of the day when he hit a pot hole in the parking lot so hard the rear tire of my bike flew off the rack. Funny. We camped down the highway about 6 miles from the village, right beside some railroad tracks. Dirtbag style. Back at the mountain the next day for a bit more riding. I was so beat i called it early. We took off about 2 , stopped by Shannon Falls in Squamish and ended up home around 10 pm.
Just another weekend.
