Just a bit of everything this evening. Witching hour. 5-7. Beast in the garden and all that. Grapple, rain and snow in Ned, trailing me like a predator, but a lovely temp (35) and no worries as I packed this am for heavy, wet weather. Trails are unreal tacky, fast, lovely, empty, grippy and zipppppppppppppy. The Yeti monster is proving itself to be of very high value. Good in really tight stuff, good in medium, good in ripping fast. It is a sick bike.
And as the fam is in NY, I am solo for 4 days. Which means being in the woods until death does me part....or I just pass out...and getting chores done for summer (like starting to build the chicken coop that needs to be done in 10 days), and generally wallowing in silence and weather and light and love.
