Usually I try to ride my brains out during the holidays. Especially when I’m down in “warm land”. This holiday has been kind of sucky. T-day it rained almost all day. Even a tad bit of snow. Friday was epic and warm. I started out with Jen, but her congestion turned her back. In just knee warmers and a slight bit of additional clothing, I decided to get a good gps track of the full loop around the Franklins that we plan on using for the Puzzler (El Paso Epic). Soon I was shedding the hat, vest, and gloves. It was a good turkey burner for sure. I’m glad I did it because this is what we woke up to this morning…..
So much for riding in this crap. If this keeps up tonight, I’m breaking out the old tele-boards and I’m gonna attempt a run down the face of the dam behind our neighborhood. It’s gotta be at least 2 feet though. I don’t have the old rock boards anymore. Just expensive fatties that haven’t been used in 3 years.
If it does melt off, tomorrow will be epic riding. The trails here are sick after a good soaking. Kind of like skiing fresh pow…just not as cold.
