Since we were deprived of much of early Spring - now we must cram it in. The elk are grazing happily on sprouting green grass and the Collective WE are chowing down on open trails, loamy surface conditions and overall excellence in The Hood. Railed with the "C" today - and that was long overdue. Such a great, fun vibe rolling through - whatever. The Fuzzy Puppy of Death is a long way out - but there was adequate space and time today. Almost 8,000 feet in the last three days..all on knobbys...feeling good. Hopefully we are tee-ing up for a great year. 13. Lucky 13.
