    it's like an enigma wrapped up in a conundrum

    went down to the river, riding was great...





    wheeling onto the moving iceflows...



    good thing we brought local free range home smoked bacon to roast on the fire...



    set up a couple sap buckets we brought in our packs... and the sap is flowing!

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    When I responded to the thread, all I saw was your link to safety around dams. It seemed out of context on its own. But, I see that there is now more content, and the post makes more sense.

    Ski conditions were still good today, so I did get some fresh air.

    Todays ride was tough but well worth the effort. There was a good turnout of BMBC members on the Humber today. We carried out the annual tradition of tapping some maple trees. Sap was pouring into the buckets within minutes!
    We refilled the suet container. The woods were alive with birds and other creatures. We saw chickadees, woodpeckers,and the beaver. We also spotted a flock of ducks that had unusual markings (black head and white belly) swimming in the Humber I looked it up and I believe it is a Lesser Scaup.

    Fun times on the ice and shore was had by all

    Those damn city folk are all the same. He probably can't gut a fish or skin a deer.

    Yesterday was a great day for a ride. Lots of people out on their "Spring" bikes. Still tons of snow in Waterdown.

    We were out "waterfall peeping" on Saturday too but cut it a little short once the snow turned to rain. It's just fantastic finally riding without a stupid headlamp!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    yeah, at least we know their entry points from the tracks.

    a couple of feet to over your head... you really have to know it very well.
    suffice to say it is better to stay on areas that are a couple of feet deep,
    those ice cakes are 2 feet thick. as they travel down the river, the cakes dig into the
    river bottom exposing veins of really nice pottery grade clay.
