welcome to my life, I've been riding for 27 years now and for the last 15+ years, I've only ridden weekdays. Every year for my b-day my wife buys me a mid-week only pass ($249) at Stevens. I'm lucky enough to have a job that I save all but one week of my vaca for the winter, having two of my riding buds work there also, means 95% of the time I'm riding with friends. We always laugh that our sick days for the last 20 years are exactly the same and it looks like tomorrow isn't going to be any different, four of us are heading up.
I guarantee you, this wont be your last day missing work, welcome to the party
