    Photo Friday: Plaid.
    Spring ended some time in the last week, giving way to all that comes after. You know, summer? When life speeds up beyond fast, beyond ludicrous even, and spins out into <a href="http://youtu.be/mk7VWcuVOf0">plaid</a>?

    Feels like we're jussssst shy of that. For now.

    Case in point: Most of these shots were taken in a 48 hour window...

    We're doing what we can to savor each moment; Mundane, spectacular, or vaguely inbetwixt. A bout of silence at sunset; a cool breeze on a 90* day; the sound of water dripping from the dog as he points at quail in the riverside brush. And so much more.

    Summer is wonderful, hypnotic, maddening (from a certain perspective) and above all, fleeting. Hope these pics have inspired you to get out amongst it.

    Summer arrived a month ago, but these days are a bit colder than usual, so we have to take an extra layer with us.

    From a ride last weekend, the skies were definitely hazy from forest fire smoke blowing in from somewhere as our state literally burns this spring/summer.

    This is my first MTB video. I've done plenty of motorcycle and BMX vids, but I wanted to give this a try. Sorry, no hucking off huge drops or anything, just a steady climb up my local technical trail on my rigid On-One Inbred.

    Feels like we're jussssst shy of that. For now.

    Case in point: Most of these shots were taken in a 48 hour window...

    Seeing the dog pics has me awaiting the day she can bike with me again... hopefully she'll never have to deal with another ACL surgery, or my pocketbook for that matter.

    To start things off, I rode with M and E to the coast from Portland, OR. They kept going down to CA, but I turned around and rode back the next day. A good opportunity to test out some new gear though!

    Then back to town. Some riding, but the family was in town so more hiking. For some reason I was okay with that.

    I wonder what's up with Mikesee's Surly dropout......


    Fat front, thudbuster in the back.

    Sub 12 hour overnighter.... should've brought the puffy jacket and pants - a 32 degree bag doesn't quite cut it when there's a hard frost. So I had to keep a fire going all night.

    New seatbag design to test out.
