    The Weekend is coming...Hmmm, where to go

    The lovely Missus Goat has given me a Hall Pass to be home by 4pm for tomorrow. With a 6-7am start at a trail head, this means I basically get to do an all day ride.

    # 1 choice: Kenosha East and if I have time and something left Kenosha west as far as I can go.

    # 2 Choice: Keystone, Breckenridge, Frisco Up the Aqueduct, CT, Blair Witch, some variation into Breck, Peaks Trail to Frisco and back

    #3 Choice: Peaceful Valley...Rocky goodness all around me, oh my!

    #4 Choice: Winter Park and Fraiser


    Fuggin ADD sucks!

    They are all terrible choices, I am not sure how you make it through life with desire and options like those.



    I would vote for option 2 because I have never done it and it sounds like a lot of fun, but then Option 1 is always good as well, as is Option 3. Option 4 at this time of the year (before the summer crowds start to arrive) also doesn't suck. To many choices! you just need a magic 8-ball for decisions like this.

    I appreciate the offer to let me come but due to bailing on the Bailey Hundo and stress at work, this one weekend day I get to do anything thats for me, needs to be a long ride.

    I was thinkin about having my wife drop me off in Buff Creek and ride CT to Waterton Canyon before they close it down for a year. Plus it would be a good ride to test out my chest mount for my hdpro.

    Probably passed you on the peaks trail. We rode it out and back from frisco. Not as long a ride as you but I got two flats and a broken chain. Didn't think that kinda **** was supposed to happen on my birthday Good ride anyway.

    I hadn't ridden the peaks in a few years. It's a lot wider than I remember it and that clearcut area is a bummer.

    Nice pics I need to get up to the high country this season. I ended up doing 6 hours with friends at Curt Gowdy today. We had a grate day other then me almost falling off a cliff on a new trail and my friends wife coming off a rock and landing on her face. But she was ok and landed on soft dirt.
