    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    Yep, Will try to get there by noon, but considering how hard it is to get the rest of my household out the door on time for anything, who knows? But I'm love with Tempest up there.

    I talked to Dax http://www.trekfactorydemo.com/regio...on_id=5&type=7 on monday and he is planning on bringing some freshly minted shuttle huck bikes for the youngins to test their skilz on Bogus with. This is a very unique opportunity as he is taking this brand new batch of bikes to CrankWorks BC the following week. If you fancy going downhill fast buy your ducket at the window and strap on your best armor because it's going to be a hoot.

    See ya on the hill!

    oh yeah, be very nice to Dax and he may show Boise some more love in the future.

    I've got about half a dozen that I'll probably post to the Barneys later this week. Didn't help one bit that I dropped my camera going up the chair. Thank God we found it, and it still works.

    THANKS TO SWIMBA and all its volunteers, and BOGUS, too, for putting this huge festival day on. We had a great time.

    Great to see all you guys at the SWIMBA booth, too. Your Viszlas, Gary, Lua, Terry, Mark IrishB, and others I forget right now. By the time I got to your booth around noon, I got the very last Bogus trail map! Thanks to faithful Barney Sue for cleanup, and I saw a handful of other Barneys and BOMB'ers, too. Fred, Dave, finally saw the Dirt Dart again since he went all top cabin on us... et al...

    What a great day, at least 20degs cooler than the valley. And I loved the bands. I think Melinda and I were the only ones up shaking it to the music. (You lose your inhibitions as you age, you know?) Our own little Woodstock.

    The food was great, too! $2 hamburgers at 4pm were awesome.
