    Good. I was in Massachusettes last week, and it rained 5 inches in one night! 3.21 inches of rain is the reason I live in this piece.

    Did you get to ride? I shipped my bike back there two years ago and had an absolute blast.

    No. I was supposed to, but a Nor'Easter* rolled in the day arrived, and it was 35-40 degrees with pouring rain. Not my idea of a good time! Where have you ridden out there?

    *For those of you not familar with the brutal weather systems of New England, a Nor'Easter is a killer coastal storm that comes down and destroys all the beach house in New England once or twice or year. Here's a few pics I took last week, count your San Diego blessings!

    I forgot some of the names of the places, but remember riding Lennox Forrest area and Otis. If I had to ride Otis everyday for the rest of my life, I would not complain.

    Really? Although I grew up there, my riding experience has been limited to the west coast. I'd imagine it's pretty flat right?

    I moved to SoCal from the northeast for the sunny skies, year-round riding, warm temps and lack of rain as well....But this little amount of rain effects a lot more that your tan.

    Wild fires are almost guaranteed to get out of controll, our trails suffer, the hard packed hillsides will become brittle and when it does rain there will be mud-slides, drought....the list goes on.

    The climbs are quick by steep w/rocks and roots. The soil is really grippy, the single track is crazy tight. And the single track, there is just tons of it.
