    When Bikers Get Bored...

    Yep its wintertime... I was on a mission to ride something different; to keep the riding fresh, and not let things get stale. I was driving about, when I noticed this magnificent dirt pile begging to have something shaped into the side of it!!!! Below is a vid of my time laps afternoon workin' the dirt.

    I'll post more in the days to come; I was a bit worn out after building, and wasn't very energetic about landing anything.

    Really liked the videos! When I was watching you sculpt out that dirt pile I kept imagining what I would do and I was sorta surprised (not sure why) when you tried exactly what I was thinking. I kept wanting you to stick it and got kinda jealous that I wasn't there to try. I really wanted to see an abubaca, but that dirt looks a bit too soft. Where'd you find that thing anyway? Doesn't exactly look natural.

    Love Day 2.

    Yeah man! We thought about sticking a log in the hill side, just to try abubacas; maybe thats todays project! This dirt pile is kind of in the Juniper Ridge area, where they are piping the canal.
