Its about time to bring out the fly rod and hit some Cascade lakes once the snow melts a little bit more. Went out for the second bike ride of the year. These days I'm pretty much warm weather rider, it has to be over 70 degrees. Will again hit up Yellowstone this summer as I'm a big Yellowstone junkie.
....and of course put some warm weather wax on the board so I can ride Timberline four or five times during the summer.
Expect the unexpected and then deal with it.

Studying chemistry and math for my next semester, and physics for my grandfather. Hiking, internship, and hiking, also hiking.
Figured this was a good place to put a list of links I was able to find and posted on another forum. If anyone feels the urge to learn something new, this should be a good starting list (though it doesn't have everything). Maybe if you feel your summer day is lagging a little too much you could make it a bit more productive.
