catching up..

Hey all, yep, still here.
Still making up cogs and
rings as ya'll need 'em.
Spent the summer not
riding like I have before.
A gunked up cranky knee
had me worried, mix in
a bit of pedaling burn out,
and it was a pretty chill
season regarding the two
wheeled mistress. Did
get out to some events,
helping behind the scenes,
always a nice change of pace...

So, I finallt got the MRI done,
and guess I really should've
listened/believed in Dr. Evil,
and saved myself that hit
from the in$urance
deductable. But, damn,
never had tendonitis quite
this bad before. I needed
to see what was going on
inside. No doubts, ya know?

Back to spinnin' a bit on
the road and stretching and
doin my interpretation
of the yoga flow and
rubbing in the arnica.
And, shit, that damn
knee of mine is actually
feeling better, go figure.

Not willing though, not yet
willing to trade my Saturdays
on the stream for pedaling
long distances. Harassing
those trout is great balance
to the elevated heartrate,
sometimes dizzy tunnel of
the Sunday ride....

Autumn is here, colors
are changing in the trees,
in the water. Got up to
explore the Little J a couple
times now. Got turned
onto it after reading about
the recent electro survey.

Survey says that it's pretty
much a wild brown fishery.
Not stocked, not too many
hold over fingerlings, mostly
wild streambred browns, cool.

Great day up there last wknd,
best day of fishin' I've had
in a while. Hungry & feisty
wild fish, best one went 15ish
on the guesstimated ruler,
average was a solid 12.
Freely rising to a dry presented
in that just oh so right way,
good times....

And the local brookies!
BLING! The males are starting
to strut their stuff trying
to impress the ladies and
are soon to get it on, producing
the next generation, sweet.

Meeshow is an amazing place,
world class riding, world class
natives, and it's all right out
the door. Damn, I sure am
lucky to have such an incredible
backyard playground.
