    If you'll allow me a moment of self aggrandizement: reports for fiscal February have landed. I finished number 1 in sales, profit and GPROI to plan as well as to LY. That put me at #44 for total company. Have definitely earned the titele of "That Little Asshoe=le". The snug is thick right now. :thumb:

    I feel ya.

    I rode out here yesterday with the cows and poop. Literally boonie farm country and yet folks were still passing me without moving over even a little. Its not like the oncoming lane was jammed full of cars or horse wagons...

    Trail pallets = KILL LIST. I'd rather just ram into that creek bed and stem shag my way up the opposite bank. They would be easy to source tho as the redneck kids dump them in the woods and use them for bonfires at their Mike's Hard Lemonade fueled sexual assault parties.

    would the riding in Pennsylvania in early April be worth driving 8 hours for? A few buddies are batting around the idea of a season opener roadtrip in April. a four day weekend sort of trip. We're thinking PA & WV. Are there good areas that will be ridable by then?

    No doubt. but we're trying to keep it to about 8 hours. @jonKranked, I don't know... anywhere the riding is good? this wouldn't be a gravity trip, all these guys are into pedalling.

    Whats New Brunswick like? It looked like there could be some wicked riding out there when I drove through last summer. Haven't really heard of much from out that ways though.

    rothrock is good. i met @johnbryanpeters there and a few other monkeys once upon a time (even though he didn't realize it at the time). nice remote region. i believe camping can be done nearby.

    raystown / allegripis is reasonably close to there (less than 2 hrs?) and is kickass.

    both places should be running, weather permitting.

    allegripis is typically open year round, weather permitting. good camping and accommodations to be had as well. dirt fest is there May 18-21 if you wanna plan for that, or avoid it. i'd recommend avoiding because it gets crowded af with gapers.

    I ate asada nachos and now I am pooping, FYI.


    Heading to Boise the first week of April, bringing my bike, can't wait to get out of town and onto some vacation trails. Although I heard the cops killed a hiker/dog killer down there yesterday!

    Taxes are done. Once again we are getting back more after CPA costs than TurboTax said that we would get in general. Cost justified again.

    Got tired of waiting for dirt and rode the Moonlander sixteen miles or so on gravel and pavement. Nice ride.

    No idea. Probably more so lesser known things that he knows to use? The taxes I did on TT were a few pages long. The ones from him are almost 20 pages long.

    His named is tagged to it, so if it goes sideways, he's liable. That's all I care about.

    No such thing as Philly cheese. Philly cheese steak is cheez whiz and some other shit that tastes great when you're wasted.

    Happy Vernal Equinox ! Hope everyone got some dirt therapy in this afternoon. Met some friends at Thuper Awethum for a ride. Some humans do not suck to spend time with in the woods. Was a good day.

    Tomorrow, gnome activities resume. All gnomes are fired up and in full on OCD trail building mode.:rockout:
