Hi all - - well most everyone's going to be busy with travel or family or festivities or all of that for the next few days, so I thought I'd say right now Happy Holidays to everyone on the MTB forum.
It's been a fun year - - online and (especially) 'on-trail.' It's been fun seeing 'old hands' return or pop in, a bunch of new people show up and everyone getting some lively discussions going. Thanks to everyone who posted pics or vids of their rides so we all could live vicariously through your experiences. It's easy to be so focused on doing our own thing sometimes that we miss out on what else is going on around the world.
To all of you I consider bros, friends and friendly acquaintances, I hope you have great holidays and an awesome new year. To anyone whom I've pissed off over the course of the year, Happy Holidays and a good new year to you too, of course! Please know that most of what I say is in the spirit of either yanking your chain for a bit of fun (at your expense unfortunately) or to play 'devil's advocate.' While you are all entitled to my opinion, gosh, wouldn't it be dull around here if we all thought the same?
You all make up a great community here and it's fun being a part of it
Rubber side down,
Your irresponsible moderator
