At least it's indoors, and close to you.

I'd have to do the second run first. Then the first run second, then back to the second run.
This year is really sucking in Texas. Even the next seven day forecast is cold. Will it ever end.
The last two years, I've had my garden in February.

Today in Vernal, UT. I saw 52 degrees f on the ride.
Notice the lack of snow.

I actually thought about doing the Second Run First.... After the Second Run, I did two more runs. I was feeling a bit overconfident on the last run. I like to start out slow, and get the tired old legs working again, but the snow was very nice for carving, so I pretended I was much younger than I actually am, was doing some very fast high speed carving...... and then my better self got control... so I ran home... It was a good day. I will go out again tomorrow and Sunday. It literally takes me a five minute walk to get from my place to where I can put my skis on and get down to the bottom of the chair.

I want to get the PanHead out to the front office soon in case we have a year like we did two ago..... I was riding in early February. I am pretty sure I am selling the '017 and will take it down to the Dealer. Mark will flog it for me.

Not sure I said this story or not, but last spring when Old Darla was at his shop after I traded it in, some people stopped in and asked him if it was "OldDarla".... some readers I assume. That was pretty funny, the old girl had a reputation.

Beautiful country. I loved it when I went through there a few years ago. Nice that you can ride. The snow here is about 4 ft deep.

52 in Vernal? Seems when I lived in Wyoming and used to travel down that way pretty regularly that this time of year Vernal and Rossevelt would be "fogged" in and cold, one of the few places Id leave Wyoming packing an extra coat for when I got there.
