    New question here. Kind, gentle question for SSO...

    Where in the Wide World of F-ck is SSO issue #5, already? The enduro is in less than THREE days!

    Put down (or at least aside) that homebrew, slide in behind the keyboard, and publish man, publish!

    BTW, the kegs of homebrew are gone, it's on to the Jack Frost bock.

    I'm thinking slush more than ice, so it'll probably be the KM for me.

    These look to be the worst ground conditions I've seen since moving here. Haven't ever ridden there though, so maybe I can't prejudge. But with all the ice and snow, over an inch of rain today and highs in the 40's tomorrow.....yuck.

    Perfect conditions - for the riders or the trails? I'm starting to think the Shed sounds smarter.

    But yeah, I aim to be there if it happens!

    in the same condition, plus large, hard, body-bruising, ice-encrusted objects called "rocks."

    The shed is still buried under deep snow and has been getting ice all night and morning. Sunday temps are forecast for a high of around freezing. Hopefully Ma Nature sticks w/ that plan.

    My weather report says rainy and warm (mid 40's) tomorrow followed by temps just above freezing Sunday. Should make for swamp riding at its finest.

    At ride time, it won't hit the high temp of the day. So I've got my money on it staying just below freezing for the ride. I'm staying optimistic, but bringing fenders just in case!

    We need to rename it the... SLUSSH

    As I look out my window, into my back yard, with 12" of standing water, and 2" of ice at the bottom. I am wonder how many minutes of riding on wet/frozen trails, in below freezing temperatures I could take?
    Should I subject myself and my bike to conditions like that? I will wait until Sunday morning to decide ? It's gonna be UGLY
    I guess there is no chance of rescheduling...again?

    I mean, what the 'ell else are you gonna do in those conditions? If you show, you'll at least be able to answer that question.

    As for rescheduling, the keg won't make it!

    Dude, I was thinking the same thing. From the beginning we should have known we'd get a freak rain storm and the warmest weather of the winter. It was destined to be as soon as the date was set. The curse of the Outlaw!
