    Well Maybe Windows is Bearable ! Unix Rules !
    Well I commuted by Bike to work today, and On the way Home I thought the ride was starting at 5:30 and There was no way I was going to get home , switch bikes/shoes/gloves/etc and get there on time. So I just went with the road bike right to the start. I got there about 5:25 and the silver turtle informed me it was 5:45 start , so I boigied Home , Which 2 good climbs in 2 miles, then Changed every thing, on the Mt bike, which felt really wierd after 20 miles on a road bike. then up the big hill to get to the other side were I joined up with PK, Z, Steve_B, IF_rider , the Silver turtle ( dirtrider2 ) and donny.

    (PK is the executive Director of NEMBA , and a writer for Dirt Rag)
    (Z is on the board of Directors of IMBA )

    and we rode, here is the silver turtle dropping with me a little too close




    IF_rider on the same drop with me stepping back a few feet




    Z dropping into the half pipe



    Berkshire_rider has to get in on the action




    Silver turtle , came up a little short off of the kicker



    IF_rider coming off of the rock ( not the kicker )




    Z coming up the Hop up


    PK hopping up a rock. PK is tough to get pics of because he is so dam fast!!!




    Z hitting the jump between the trees



    IF_rider has been eyeing this for a while he finally hit it tonight ! He has been looking so smooth on that AC



    and fianally , Z hitting one of the larger chutes. at this point I didnot have my lights with me so I had to bggie to get out with light.
