On Saturday man I found every single stump, rut, branch, etc., that was buried by the fresh snow. Got worked once or twice but mostly it just stopped me/slowed me down enough to make the rest of the run not very fun because I didn't have enough speed... Shit happens.

Saturday is going to be a game-time decision I think. C-burg is not a bad drive but it'/s still 2.5 hours give or take and if the conditions locally are acceptable (no black gunk of death?) then I would prefer to stay at MTH and maximize my riding time rather than spend 5 hours in a car...
