First Fall Weekend


Love the cooler temps. Sleeping weather as they call it. The mosquitoes are still around but the cool morning have them also sleeping longer. 

Sunday I pulled a tripleheader. I started with about an hour walk in the park. Then drove out to our local State trails called Greenbush and layed down a lap out the. About another hour. Then I headed home and put in another hour on the Checkpoint. A good day.

Not after having to pump up those damn WTB tires again. The front tire seems to be holding air. Friday I put in another 2oz of stans and it still was completely flat the next morn. Im decided if I should give it one more shot or just tube the damn thing. Im going to maybe change valves today. Last chance.

Ive quietly been losing weight. I have been eating about half of what Im used to. And all in smaller portions spread out during the day. I dont talk about it much to anyone. Just let it take its course and see what happens. 


On the MTB yesterday I saw this big mushroom. Not sure what kind it is but those things must grow fast. It was no more than 2 feet off the trail.

So this is the week where I prep for a short weekend in Marquette. Only my second weekend away from the store since March and since the only weekend in mid July. Im really looking forward to it. Even tho its short. I’ll leave early Saturday morn and be up there riding by noon. Then I have reservations at the local campground to tent it Saturday nite. And after hitting up a coffee shop early Sunday morn will hit the trails again for a few hours before grabbing some lunch and driving home. I’ll be solo.

If I find some time I might hike up to the top of Sugerloaf. Also on Saturday there is the Marquette Mountain Enduro as the south trails. I might stop in a bit there but dont want to waste good ride time. So Im trying not to get too excited. The last time I was excited to head out a weekend plans got cancelled and it threw me for a loop.

Another thing I gatta start working on is my trip out west. That, like last year, will happen the first week of Nov. The store will be closed that week. And thats only 5 weeks away!

Thats about it for my weekend. Better get to work.
