Harris - Roubaix was super fun

I think I am still shelled from it
Check out my peace out socks!
5 folks ahead that said "peace out" to me

Iron Mountain 100K in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area

The Iron Mountain 100K has some gems
Jerry's Creek Trail is lush and green
Tight singletrack with a steep exciting side hill
The trail has a 10 x 6 ft. divot missing from the tread
A huge tree borrowed some soil for a while
We are going to harvest the soil off the roots
And return it to the tread so we make it though there again
A few rolling grade dips need to be refreshed
We have to keep the water flowing across the trail and not down it
The only place the water needs to be running
Is in the beautiful creek far down below

Camping in the GW National Forest in STYLE!

Met a nice Mennonite couple camping in the GW last week
Pretty darn cool!
They rode 17 miles to get there
Amazing set up!
Beautiful steeds!
Neat ol' wagon from Zanesville, Ohio
Water barrel with fresh water
One as a wash basin
Super cool adjustable grilling rack
They have been coming out for years and years...
Camping in our National Forest is a very fine time!

Dragon's Tale - good long weekend!

A tough weekend at work
two nasty blowouts on the trailer in route to the event
up before the sun getting things going
the moon was nice company
as was Max the dog
the Browns hooked up the #1 support stop
huge thanks to East Coasters and Jeni for running #2
great new maps on new kiosks at the trailheads - super cool!
the fast guys were really fast
note - we did remove the ring of fire this year
