I'll make a proper post in the morning about my trip. In the meantime I'll leave you with the following signature I saw on a message board tonight.

I'm going to blame thinking that is funny on the jet-lag and the fact that I got on a plane in a city where it was 103 degrees and got off in one where it was 48 degrees.

At this rate, I might be able to ride my favorite trails by the end of August...
Might it be time to invest in a Pugsley?
