Hey Old Slug...

Great to hear from you again!

You going to be hitting the trails this spring?

I drove up to the Youth Camp after work (2:45 pm) to check on the road conditions on the state forest roads. 6 to 8 inches of snow on top of 4 inches of ice and this is one of the spots that gets sun and melts faster.
If I wanted to drive over the hill to Bill's I'd get a full size 4x4 pickup with extra clearance, new tires, a Warn winch with extra cable, a couple of high school linemen and a case of Bud. Maybe to or three cases of Bud, we'd be wasting a lot of time winching and pushing the truck out of the ditches and back on the road.
Nah, I'll wait. Bill is right it will be a couple more weeks.

But the snow is all gone here??!?!?!

Oh well, hit the road bike for some early season miles. Or really hit the road and go south or west for an adventure.





Asheville will have a high of 74 today and has been dry I hear?!?!?!!?

I flew back yesterday from NYC and while I didn't get my coveted window seat because the flight was full, I still annoyed the guy next to me by craning my neck to get a look. We weren't as far south as E-ville, and I was looking out the north side, but there was snow everywhere until just before we got to Buffalo. My yard in EA is still covered.

The Southern Tier had a pretty solid base left even before the fresh 8 inches from last weekend.

Last year was a pretty snow-free winter

As I went into sunny, snow free work today, I was thinking about asking you Bill about the trail conditions in Eville.

Still covered??!?!?

The temps are still rather low. Last year, you, Ben and I were riding a ton in March on top of the leaves. Removing leaves for the riding season is not always a good idea.

I've got one you can use. Just don't light yourself on fire.

Hey Bill, thanks for updating your avatar, it's like he's not gone at all. Keep the memory alive.

All seasonal forest roads are impassable. We've got to have about 18-24" of snowpack.

Once again the snow has melted, leaving us with just plain wet conditions.

You need to drive around and go in from Mutton Hollow Rd.
