Saturday was sweet!

After I got off work and before the wife returned from her Spring Break I had some time to play. I headed over to Green Mountain to see how far I could make it. For the first time ever on my SS I made the entire climb without walking any of it. That was a first for me. I'm not saying I made it all in one shot, but I am going to work on that. This was also the first time I actually went to the top, I normally just take the single track and continue, this time I weent up the fire road to the peaks. Great views from up there!

After gettting back down to the parking lot I looked over at the car behind me parked in 2 spots and started to laugh after reading the plate. I guess it really is a warning. LOL

Congrats on making it to the top
As for the parking... those that stay in the lines are just conformists
