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.
