Well a month later and ...

Rode this past Saturday up in Flag. Sweet ride. I recommend Sunset to Schultz down, Who really cares about gong up. Never had much fun doing that but the rewards sure are swell.

Temps finally broke the triple digit basement. In other words it is finally cool enough to ride in the day light in the valley. Working up to riding several days a week before work to lose a few pounds and get back some form. Not like racing form, I just want to lose some of the round shape I have become.

Well I am back I guess. A bit fatter and a lot slower. I have had two crashes this year. Big knock you off the bike and walk funny crashes. Go to the ER crashes. The last one made me hurt. Hurt real bad. It invaded my brain and stuck in the grey matter. In essence, it destroyed my desire.

I smacked the slick rock in Sedona. I actually thought I was going to need an airlift off the hill. Needless to say I rode it out and never went to the Doc's. I guess that was a dumb move as I am now certain I did damage that is permanent and going to make me walk funny ( er ).

I also got a motorcycle and have used that excuse to not pedal A LOT. It has saved me however, from the suffering heat and dismal early morning rides. I get my miles by getting fat and twisting throttle. I see a dirt road and find out where it goes and what neato things it can show me. So far I have seen more of AZ by moto than I could have ever imagined.

Sorry for the go away. I will do better. If you are still there.

Oh yea. I am riding again.

Yea That

I have been amiss in updating the blog. Sue me.
It is the end of winter, or officially Spring ( ala Daylight Savings. )
But who really cares?
It is prime time riding season!!

This year has been exceptionally rainy. A LOT of rain.
I believe the last time it rained like this I was living in Tucson.
Actually, I had just moved there and EL Nino was kicking.
I loved that time in the desert. Great way to spend the first year. Just digging on the green and riding superb trails.

This year is more of that only a bit different. I am older and have an awesome wife who
gets to see just what the hell I was talking about.
It is just starting to explode, the color that the desert hides most often.

Grass does not grow here.
The desert is just a bunch of rocks and dirt.
The plants look like they are dying.
Heard all that before and I am telling you. You are a damn liar.
This place is rad.

I have been listening to a bunch of music as of late. Try it.

Grand Canyon X-Mas

We STILL cannot imagine why our family has not visited us! We certainly do not think Michigan is all that great this time of the year. Arizona has much to offer and plenty to do. I guess our friends will be the only ones to reap the rewards. Too bad our family will only see it in pictures....
