Believing my efforts were successful, I threw my stuff in the car & headed to GM to join in the dirt-diggin' fun, about an hour behind schedule. Hiked up near the top & grabbed a pick & dug in for about 2.5hrs, till storm clouds brought thunder & lightning. Dropped the tools, & hiked it back to the lot, where I pulled my 1st beer @10:34am.
Thanks you for supporting me in my ongoing efforts to drink before noon.

New single-track section instead of the road up top of GM + my 2nd trail day this week = Sweeet!!
Recently replaced the bent chain-ring on the Monkey, so decided to get back on it & give the Honzo a rest & hit some mellow smooth trails. Hooked up w/some of The Usual Suspects at BC & rolled out for a long-ish day.

About 35 miles total, 33 of which seemed to be heading uphill with almost no breaks. After my quads started trying to cramp on me, I decided it was time for my trail beer, despite what the Strava-ites were doing. Laid around for about 15 minutes, with my legs trying to cramp the entire time - finally was able to hop back on the bike & finished it up.
Painful, but good fun (after it was over & we were in the lot drinking cold beers).
Oh yeah, the subie has been rolling smoothly since Saturday am.
