    So it is Friday afternoon, it is cloudy, the trails are wet from rain and I am faced with the following questions.

    1. Should I blow off work for the rest of the day? (no brainer)
    2. Should I go riding or should I have a jam session?

    Thoughts?

    Jam session as in a band with instruments and beer, or a jam session as in dirt jumps? Not that it matters, both are acceptable :D

    KT soils don't tend to mud, do they?

    Ride.

    Do both! Do some riding for a few hours, and then come home and do your thing. As long as you're not wasting your Friday afternoon working, it's all good!

    just think: soon that muddy trailed will be completely frozen and covered with snow and ice. The windchill will be killer and you'll be wishing you hadn't complained so much about the mud

    Ahh, yes. It was a great ride and I got another one in on Saturday for good measure.

    Saturday was a pre-wedding ride, but the bride and groom and about 25 others bagged out on account of potential showers. Well, six of us went out and teh trails were dry, it never rained a drop and we had a stellar day on the KT!!! Here is the ironic part...it started raining during the outdoor wedding ceremony! :angry:
