Will do. Thursdays I usually work from home which affords me some freedom to take some "personal time"

I'll def be riding on the weekend just not sure when or where yet. Probably won't know until Friday but I'll let everyone here know.

my friend just called me up and see if i wanna drive up north tmr. Which mountain should we head for? I've never been to any of the mountains up north so a little insight might be nice.

Its just gonna be a chill ride. Not doing any park or jumps. Don't wanna get hurt before we head out west next weekend. So where should we go?

we are looking at caberfae, boyne mountain, boyne highland...they are all around 3.5 hr from my place. any reports on the conditions?

Cab will be the cheapest. If money is no object then I'd go Highlands.

In all fairness, I only said that because I was at holly and it's something we'll never forget.

No second guessing which jump when I say that too.

haha, yeah I can't argue that. With four words we all knew exactly which jump you were talking about.

Yeah, it'd be perfect and crowdless. I would have been out.

Yeah, It would have been!! PK was deserted last night! It was great!!!

BTW, after they did the evening re-groom,.. I officially logged my personal bests on speed runs! I'm pretty sure I already broke these speed barriers earlier this year, up @ Highlands. I may have even gone faster, but I didn't have any actual log or confirmation of my speed!

I downloaded the "Alpine" app for my iPhone & 1st I busted 30 mph, then a few runs later, cracked 35 mph!! Last year, with the "Snow Trax or Cyclemeter" App's, the best I could do was 29.5 MPH!! So I'm really Stoked!!!

I also managed a few new Flat land, buttering tricks on that 2011/12 NS Proto CT of Leo's I was checking out! I really dialed in & refined my tail presses! That Proto spins like a freakin' top!! It was really fun! My Pressed turns/spins yesterday were a lot more smooth, complete, controlled & even downright "steezy!!" I actually stuck & held several (slow speed) moving nose presses! I starting down the run, (...on the much maligned PK Black Diamond run!!) pressed on the nose of the proto & nollied out into a good, straight, long tail press, complete with a pressed spin to switch!!!

All in all, I had a REALLY great night at PK yesterday!!! Wish some of you married "Wusses" could have gotten out there to enjoy it with me!! (...just joshing guy's!!! Not hating!!)

Wait... you knocked yourself out the first try and then went back and landed it? Damn. You're tougher than me.
