David: I can bring it with me, but my point was that I can't wax it. I definitely will if I manage to find time, otherwise I can just bring it and you ride as is. It's not terrible, I only rode it once after fresh wax. Just looks dry to me, but maybe that's what the soy wax looks like after a sesh?

Maverick: For sure, I'll bring the Flows.

This is of course if I can even go lol. Chances are it's a go though.

By the way, I'm literally a mile off of 59 and Adams.

Understood - I was just figuring I'd pick it up from you tomorrow night, wax it over the weekend, ride it sunday or monday, and then return it to you. But I might be tempted to take it for a few turns anyways

I am going to try to be there ~5pm. It looks like the weather might not be the greatest with a chance of wintry mix early in the day (noonish) but it should clear up by mid-afternoon and hopefully if the temps stay above freezing it won't be awful conditions.

Ah, then it is I who misunderstood

Yea, that sounds like a plan. Of course I'll have to ride it if the Evo doesn't get here.

No problem - as much as I want to ride it (soon!) I also want to just get out and lap the park without being in robot review mode. robot "progression" mode, well, that's a different story

If conditions are bad icey, jumps don't seem appealing to me lol. If it's slushy, well, that's A-O-K in my book. Who am I kidding. I'd probably still go for it like last time after seeing you hit it.

I won't touch the jumps if it's icy (something about getting knocked the fuck out when I overshot the 15'er to flat last year still scares me!)




so I'm hoping it's slush because I really want to land some 360s this week. I'm so pumped after landing a few on Sunday that I want to try them again on bigger hits.

Yea, I saw that last year. The thud heard around Michigan. I still don't think that's a 15. Looks bigger.

It might've been 20 but I made it 30 the way I overshot it

Dammit! I can't go tomorrow. Of course tomorrow is the day that the in-laws can't watch the baby. Thursdays are usually okay with them. Looks like I'm looking at either Fri night or one of the weekend day seshes. :/
