    MGE is in the zone!

    Dude , I am totally envious. You have been killing it with awesome rides here lately. Hope you have a good one in Buff Creek.

    You should have posted up the ride stokage from your Lair of the Snow Bear Ride. Looks like some great times and some great photos also.

    Oh yeah, riding has been good of late. A fortunate accident made consuming the Coffee Stout at 8am a necessity...I know lucky right?

    I'll post more later....but till then

    Can you give us a brief run down on the clothing you had on, please? I got couple hours in yesterday in the snow and am still having issues with condensation and freezing. It was a great ride though, fresh tracks through the beaver brook watershed.

    Why only 2 beers? I'm totally confused. If weight is an issue add more cans.

    While I hate to steer this away from the ride and the ride stoke as it looks like a fantastic time was had, I've been intrigued by the chocolate milk stout for a while now. How is it?

    clothing optional

    "Head to toe...this is what I usually wear when its below 15 degrees...I had to wear it Sunday and my GPS was reading between 25-32 degrees" - MGE

    That's pretty close to what I usually wear also, but have been experimenting with putting a windproof layer on after a thin base T and heavier weight long sleeve, then I put on an outer insulating layer (usually fleece). It's sort of the same theory as the vapor barrier socks - to keep the moisture from over wicking/wetting through all layers. Sunday it was snowing pretty hard so I added another 'waterproof' layer over the top of that and while I was warm the whole time, I did get freezing condensation inside the windbreaker. Its all part of the fun, at least for me. It may bore others.

    So lets talk about beer then. The Breck brewery Chocolate Stout is okay, perhaps that Lugene would be better. The coffee stout in a can - now that is a good breakfast drink.

    Nice Buff Picture! I look forward to reading your blog post...

    Trying to keep this thread on topic!

    Just kidding.

    I really dig my PolarTec stuff. I now look for this material in all of my clothing. Warm, breathes real well, and feels good against the skin.

    sheesh Scar, just because I make fun of your pink coat too many times and you don't have to go and buy a brown polartec coat.

    PolarTec base layers (upper and lower)

    I think the final straw was when me and Dano where FIFO'ing one morning and he was leading. He topped out on a climb and there was a couple up there that he started chatting to as he was waiting for me to catch up (cause I am old, just ask GIANTkiiler). The male asked Dan if him and his "lady" got out in the mornings much.

    It's stupid good. Having had their milk stout, it tasted like I'd expect, and my expectations were very high.

    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.
