    Not as soon as I thought, I'll be at UCSD in a year or so, so I'm sticking it out down here for the next 3-4 years.... uh, that almost makes me feel sick. But I'll make the best of it. I'll for sure hit you up though next trip up there. I'm up there maybe 2-3 times a year, and next time I'll bring my bike.

    the cops are all over telling people to stay off the roads... its great when they turn on their flashers and attempt to tell you to stay off the road when they can barly drive.. i don't think the roads r that bad but i guess having a truck makes all the difference ....

    Should have made the 6 hr drive. Almost too cold to ride today in the Bay Area, felt like low 50's....or maybe I'm just getting old. Did manage to get out and do some hucking at the dried up creek bed behind my house, for @ an hour or so. Decent sized hip jumps, and a few 3-5 ft. drop offs along the banks. Have a few more weeks before the creek fills with water again.

    Tomorrow will be out at Soquel Demo @10am, doing Coral and then Braille, anyone else up that way, I'll be on the black M1 with Fox 40.

    Yeah Cancun weather is nice even though I hate humid and heavy air that, Mexico City weather is perfect. City surrounded by big mountains, all year riding, average 20s and 30s, mixed soil with ashes and stuff makes it permeable and not muddy, awesome man.

    I cant handle so much cold, the coldest I've been was a time I hanged around in the Swiss Alps, it was like -10...

    I didn't know you had been. That place was pretty sweet, minus the 20min push out. It's closer than I thought too, only like 30 min from my pad. Super mild yet flowy, worth the push. You'll have to make another trip down.

    You mean where you park up that little peak that's like 200yds up? We just parked and headed down than up the fire road, then took the trail. The kid we were with said it's not worth the extra hike to get to the top top. Maybe he was mistaken, or maybe you know something he doesn't...
