Re: Emma Long ride....

Had a blast as usual @Emma today. Saw more friendly faces there keeping the inspiration going. Can't wait for things to cool down a little.

Thanks again Justin for showing me how it's done on those steps. That was awesome!

Too large to move by a single person? Do they need a chain saw? Were you able to get around them fairly easily? Inquiring minds want to know.

I'm planning on going out Saturday morning at 0 dark 30 again to enjoy a cool morning. My wife saw a motorcycle in a head on collision yesterday so I know she'll be nervous about me riding.

Re: Emma Long ride....

Weather was awesome this morning. So great to not be totally dripping with sweat every time you stop.

I did notice an unusual amount of large rocks in the middle of some of the trails. Maybe it was just me but there were several spots I came up on where there was a really large loose rock just sitting in the middle of the trail. I moved a few that seemed way out of place.
