I'm back.

Most exciting thing, aside from the snow on the passes, was coming 10' from being creamed by a speeding pickup as it made a 50mph turn from SB Federal onto 23rd Ave. Cops had a similar looking pickup stopped across Federal. After I slammed on my brakes to avoid getting hit, and flashed the off-road lights, cops gave up on the guy they had stopped and went after the speeding one. A cyclist lady next to me also was close to this. Welcome back to the city eh? TALK ABOUT COMING IN HOT!

Coming in HOT!!! Hahha...lots of good laughs on this one and amazing scenery. I'm glad the little 40 made the trip without rattling itself apart. Whew...pulled in at 9:30 pm last night. LONG day of driving but totally worth it. That's the first time I have hit 5th gear on a gravel road baja style. Nothing quite like coming over a crest, spying skid marks in the dirt and realizing you have to haul a top heavy 40 down to 20mph to hit the wash in about 60ft! Ouch...really makes me want to go to coils and pnue bumpstops.

Yep pretty cool stuff out there. Long baja style roads, views, snow sledding, wheeling, pancakes, dinner gang, killer propane fire pit, beer, crazy lady on the trail, 9 mile hike, "your wife called", flute playing in the canyons, crapper views, birka siting, tire repair class, burgers at Ray's..

Did I miss anything?

Did you guys hear me trying to call out to you yesterday on 146.460? I started hearing chat once I hit Monticello at 11am. I'm only assuming it was you. I never turned my power up past 5w.
