    Not scenic, but significant to me: this is home after my final commute from a job I've held for 5 and a half years... I've been waiting to switch jobs for a long time because I wanted the new one to still be within reasonable biking distance.

    With gas prices on the rise, I still say it makes sense in the long run to try and be close to work.

    I agree, traveling to work is terrible, it can turn an 8 hour day into a 12 hour day for many many people in the the Hamilton area who commute into the GTA for a job.

    When I lived in Calgary, I lived one block away from work

    It is starting to look like winter. Currently 10-12 inches of snow and more on the way.

    No doubt. The sun warmed the goo just enough for it to bypass the fender and go straight to the frame. A nice problem to have.

    Mudflats

    I was finally was introduced to the tidal flats by an Anchorage rider that lives nearby ( thanks Tim).

    Beautiful day, looking North - long shadow at 13:00. Yes the days are getting short here in South Central AK. Not optimum riding today on the mudflats - tho' cold, 15 degrees F, the brackish tidal runoffs were still very soft...

    The Pic: Pugsley, jumble sea ice, the bluffs of Fire Island, and I believe the Tordillos mountains.

    Out and about in Nome...

    Great to see every one out and enjoying winter! The pics going up this weekend have been awesome.

    I spent almost as much time on snowshoes this weekend putting in trail as I did in the saddle. Even my rides were 50 percent hike-a-bike due to dry, unconsolidated winddrift snow. But it's all good. Finally got some snow to cover the sheet of ice we got awhile back. In week or so the sled necks and mushers will have things packed down and more rideable. Superb weather this weekend, if you like it cold. Down to -5F and not too much wind. The backlit photo of the sun over the Nome harbor, where I stopped for a stop of tea, was taken just after noon (cheers mauricio!). Yes... the days are short.

    Mukluk's first ride

    Just did my first snow ride with two friends on their Pugsleys. We rode in White Salmon, WA in the Columbia River George. Had fresh snow coming down with 4" to 10" on the trail. What a blast!!!!!!!!!!!

    White Salmon... we'll have to hook up sometime! I'm in Yakima. Theres 4 fat bikes here now (two of them are mine but I usually don't have any trouble finding a rider for my extra). You guys ever get up this way?

    This is what a forest Tri-Pod looks like

    Couldn't find a decent spot to mount my gorilla-pod onto.. so I made a tri-pod out of logs and branches.

    No snow yet here, but its cold enough. Here's where our fatbikes took us. First some trails like this.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5243524169/" title="2010-12-07 027 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5205/5243524169_bc81cdd625.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="2010-12-07 027" /></a>



    Then some trails like this.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5244122046/" title="2010-12-07 028 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5006/5244122046_ddf78f424d_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="2010-12-07 028" /></a>



    Which brought us here.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5243526041/" title="2010-12-07 031 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5168/5243526041_c5523d256a_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="2010-12-07 031" /></a>



    Where we saw stuff like this...



    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5244125048/" title="2010-12-07 035 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5284/5244125048_bab069d544.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="2010-12-07 035" /></a>

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5244126004/" title="2010-12-07 036 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5203/5244126004_c4e9489659_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="2010-12-07 036" /></a>



    ....and this, poor little guy, wandered off from his pond and probably had no idea what he was heading into. No place for a turtle.

    Cool stuff ICJ! Where is this? We have small areas of "Juniper Dunes" scattered around the desert areas of eastern Washington and Oregon. Haven't rode 'em yet but they're all on my list...

    A big ass storm heading through Saint Paul right now... it's being forecasted as very large. We will see, but just in case, I wanted to get out there before it was bottom-bracket-deep.

    Yup, our snow has gone, but it won't be long before it's back...

    As little bike as possible, as silent as possible.

    Finally I have SNOW!!!

    After 6 months of inpatient waiting and wanting of snow I finally have enough for a proper Christening of Pug Speedman (that's what I named my Pug). Seems where I live is the last place in Michigan to get snow and until last night the snow total was .30 inches while 60 miles west there's 18+ inches of snow on the ground!

    Anyway, here's a pic of the first snow ride of the season! I live half a mile from the White Pine recreation trail that runs 60 miles in length (I'm right in the middle) and links hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails in the winter time.

    Another GR Pug? I had no idea.

    We'll have to get a group ride together!

    I love the colour of your Pug, I can empathise with your inpatient waiting, over this side of the pond we currently have snow but no fat-bikes!! My Pug's not due to hit these shores until Feb/Mar by which time all our snow will be gone! :'-{

    Thanks Johnni and MiniTrail! I had the orange done just after the initial build because I couldn't stand the baby poo brown color. I love the purple too and contemplated going purple but wanted something a little...brighter! Here's one more.
