Yesterdays (WED) ride with pics!

Went with a buddy of mine. Trails were a blast. There was a mix of hard packed snow, ice, dry patches of dirt and at the very beginning a little mud. I will be returning back there shortly!

I have no clue, it is completely hidden from all road ways and is not advertised in any way. I think it is just a home owner that wanted a castle. What's cool is that is also has a tree castle for the kids and a moat!

Yeah I have thought about a recorder, however I can think of better ways to spend the money!

Plenty warm, it was in the lower to mid 40's.

Not that I have money to throw around but my Flip was only $140 (case and tripod included/pkg deal). Not bad and I'm a po'h dude! Gina suggested that I get a Garmin, but being that I don't ride enough to warrant a Garmin, I suggested the video recorder.
