    And you didn't meet them up on top because.....?

    That morning, I was lying in bed just beginning to recover from a real nasty month long cold, thinking that if Ed can do Kennedy with jet lag, I should be able to crawl up the mountain with a cold.

    Hrrrmmmpf :rolleyes:

    (OK that, and the thought of Carmen's cookies got me up the hill.)

    You can make your Yahoo photos folder "public" and then everybody can see them.

    I was almost 2/3 up the top when I realized I shouldn't have brought the bottle. I was fine with my camelback on the short trip. So I'm glad you called out and it went to someone that needed it.

    Sorry Larry, the other seat in the Burley is taken by Ray's brother next year!

    That was a long pull up that hill, but he didn't complain at all, and had a fun time at the top eating cookies and drinking the other Ray's root beer. Not to mention watching his buddy Curtis do a keg stand!

    I might have been going too fast on the downhill since I had to stop twice to do a diaper change.

    Rensho and JeffH rode their singlespeed Niners. JeffH had a gallon of contraband strapped to his handlebars even.

    Rensho took a turn at pulling my Burley. It would have been all good except I had to ride his SS up the hill.

    Sometimes, a ride just goes right. Some rides just go to hell and then some rides go better than you could imagine it.

    The Turkey ride of 06 was an epic event. It can never be duplicated. It can only be remembered.

    Ok, if you stayed home because of this and that and wa-wa-wah, then you missed it. If you went down from the hill before 10am, I personally yelled at you to 'TURN AROUND!' I mean, what could be so important?? You got 4 days to hang with your in-laws!

    But if you stayed to hang out with mtbr at the top of the hill, you were rewarded with a whole lotta smiles, old friends, new friends, a truckload of food and a touch of alcohol.

    Everywhere you looked, everybody was happy. That's what mountain biking is about. Mtbr is about sharing. Mountain biking is about play. We shared and we played. That was a good day.

    So the gang could not pull together the roast pig aka 'lechon' but we did bring in another Filipino tradition. It's called 'rushing the camera' (aka kodakan). The object is to gang up in front of any camera in sight and get in the photo!

    So there it is. I hope everybody had a good Thanksgiving Holiday. People have already started talking about Turkey ride 07.

    Someone at the top of the wall yelled out, "I heard it was possible, but had to see it with my own eyes." Traction was so good, clearing the wall was easier than past attempts.

    Pulling the trailer was pretty cool; sit and spin. I forgot how nice gears felt. :thumbsup:
    Not enough to go back, but it was a nice trip while it lasted.

    I'm waiting for my turn on that RIP9, without the burley.

    Also, what a good way to start T-day. Good friends and food, and exercise.

    That was so much fun, I don't even know what to say. I just can't believe some people had better things to do than that. Oh, and I weighed the whole setup. 48lbs for the keg(beer and shell), and 13lbs for the trailer. I just wish I rdoe a bike with 3 chainrings on it.

    I'm glad my efforts paid off and everyone enjoyed the beer on tap. I'm just trying to give back to my community who's given me so much. RIDE ON.

    Sidenote: UncleBri and I did a 2 hour ride on Friday that made my knees gobble wobble like a turkey.

    Yeah we did. Awesome. Awesome vacation -- four rides? I don't even remember.

    I had to help my dad move, including a piano, on Saturday, ouch.

    great times! and can't wait til next year!

    I'm one of the so called Pinoy Mafia who joined the fun and our second year joining the ride. We have a splinter group but Francis' is a friend and fun to be with as with other MTBR guys and gals. We are of the same passion, so we'll be back for more. Thanks to all who bring food, booze and fun. Also thanks to everybody who makes that day a blast.Turkey Ride 07 is already in our calendar and yes we'll bring more food and drink. To those who didn't make it, it's only 11 months 26 days left for the next one. Be there.

    I saw Ancient Rascal on his single speed go up the wall with his buddy Leopold on the fat bike last Thursday. It was a thing of beauty!

    I like to think of the spot as Collord's Peak. There's a marker at the corner of the high school nearest Sumit Bikes, with a great view!
