    Got to love MTBr

    I rarely log in, and when I do, it is to find an old picture or lurk around late at night in the dark. I miss being able to "ride like a chica" every dang day! Bike dreams have been especially strong the last couple of months.

    You will get hurt, you will heal, you will get hurt some more and then you will get old enough you can't risk getting hurt again. Ride your bike, you lazy asshats! Get off the dumb devices. Please, pedal - anywhere on anything.

    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died

    2600 posts and you rarely log on? Your a social butterfly.

    you'll note her listed join date, which is nearly a decade prior to yours. so yeah, 2600 posts in 15yrs. yet I know well that her presence here predates that join date, as that's when the forum software switched, and most ppl lost connection with their old posts (and some, like me, forgot their old user names). She was here well before me, and I joined the site somewhere around 1999-2000. A rare few were able to track down their original join dates under the previous software and have the admins make a manual change.

    In the end, what does it matter? I honestly wouldn't mind at all if the join dates and post counts got hidden.

    That's what you're focusing on after such a nice sentiment

    Thanks MUM! that's a lesson that's easy to forget until it's too late.

    Not currently on the agenda but maybe one of these days. Good riding thereabouts? A quick computation reveals getting there & back in the motorhome might cost $1500-1600. Might have to take a few months to get there. Plus a few more to get back home.

    2019 mountain biking targets include the SW desert this winter and Squamish/Whistler next summer. My girlfriend gave me a passport for my latest birthday. Yay!

    MTBr had a chat room and a couple of forums. Can't verify when I found this and joined - was on dial up at the library, but I'm pretty sure it was active in 1998 (?). They had a big changeover and many original folks had to re-register. Old screen names in caps were an inside joke of people "yelling". Good times back then. Many life long friendships made!

    If I can't ride I'll close my eyes
    and coast beneath some sun drenched skys
    On twisty, rooted single tracks
    on hairy steeps and outs and backs.
    I'll make the drops I never do
    and climb a harder hill or two
    then bomb back down at breakneck speed
    drifting corners on my steed.
    I'll change a flat in record time
    swap out parts much more sublime
    I'll kick my partner's butt all over
    and laugh with him when it's all over.
    I'll take on whoops and dips and drops
    like sponsored riders at their tops
    Each one I'll fly with no remorse
    and hustle my intended course.
    My bike and I will feel like one
    the ride this time goes on and on
    My lungs have room to venture farther
    my legs have muscles grown much larger
    Invincible me on my trusted machine
    will find out nothing I can't clean
    as all the dreaded rocks and heads
    disappear beneath my knobby treads.
    Ahhhh the power I feel in this my dream
    hopping over rushing streams
    hardly touching ground at all
    never dabbing and never to fall.
    I am to all a shimmering light
    a wisp of wind on errant flight
    a fleeting moment lost in time
    a journey with no reason or rhyme
    This is my most epic ride
    it's endless sweetness is my pride
    What's left, in the end, depite my might
    is me, my thoughts, my trusted bike.
    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died

    I think the only guy riding BC right now is Harold on his fattie.

    Trails are going to be nasty for a while, probably this whole week. Shucks!

    I wish!

    No way my little car would be able to get out of my neighborhood yesterday. Probably could have today if I had ever bothered to clear it or shovel the hill behind it, but with my wife not working today I wouldn't have needed to. Roads to my neighborhood still aren't plowed (even though the neighborhood itself is, and roads are totally clear). My wife was driving to/from work in her subie through it all weekend.

    Snow conditions were garbage for riding today, anyway. I could spin around my neighborhood, but making progress in the super deep slushy slop wasn't really happening.

    My neighborhood appears to have received SIGNIFICANTLY more snow than the rest of avl got, too. I'm on a south/southwest facing slope of a mtn that looks to catch extra accumulation from storms coming from that direction. Some of my neighbors are saying they measured as much as 20", but I think 15-16ish is closer to accurate.
