The weekend started on Friday afternoon. Made a last minute decision that I would ride over the hill to meet up with Mr. Mud so we could ride up B-OO-B (Bohlman – On Orbit – Bohlman) together. I had to carry our tent poles in a backpack hoping to get them fixed at Mel Cotton after the ride. …more…

My post to Mud 'n Crud forum:
I just had an epiphany: A picture is worth a thousand words. So forget about a longer report. Here are the pictures. But first, thanks F4 for hosting the delicious hotpot dinner and the one of a kind birthday gift! …more…

Mr. Mud wanted the first trip for his new ride to be special, and what could be more special than taking her to his favorite place on earth, the Pinnacles?

Went to the Pins today.  Fantastic weather, warm in the sun with a cool but not cold breeze.  The breeze was not strong enough or cold enough for it to be chilly while in the shade.  Still a few wild flowers out.
Wet Kiss, Big Pucker TR combo for the warm up. …more…

Because we returned home very late from yesterday's ride, we had a late start to the Pinns this morning. Having had to stop at Mud's work did not help either. It was a short day for us at the Pinns because we wanted to get home at a reasonable hour to get important stuff done such as posting trip reports. …more…

The day started out dicey — cloudy, gusty, with occasional drizzles. In the afternoon, there was more sun and it warmed up a little. Finally, the day ended being spectacular.F4, Mud, and I were joined by the Landshark family at Discovery Wall. …more…

It is a beautiful day. I can't believe that we almost decided to stay home this morning when we woke up an hour after our alarm went off.
