I believe there was a saying in the Middle Ages that went something like: When the Pig is good, the life is good. Lotsa fried pig this am and the FIRST day of the year t the rock. Typically I would have about 20 days by now - but the trails have been oh-so-good, and the snow - oh-so-not there that I have been spending a lot of time on the bike - here in the 10th month of this year's riding season here at 8,400 feet. Bizarre. True. Rallied for the hill for Miss Kim's B'day (we love you) and hung with the b'day girl and the man of joe for some sliding and Salto Coffe. A great day. Blummoxed with the dude. Got out for a 2 hour ride and some work....all in all - a fine day. Surf and turf. Does not get better.
