Riding didn't go as well as planned. First of all, I forgot that my bike had problems. Something wrong with the rear bearings or something... every once in a while (often) it locks up and won't allow the wheel to spin free of the chainring... so I have to pedal. Haven't figured out what it is yet, but it is bad enough that I couldn't do the 3 b's ride, because I ended up hurting myself when the thing caught at a bad moment and I slid through some loose dirt and had to step off... right onto my bad knee. Ouch. So, we rode back home. And when I say we I mean Jarr and I, because Josh bailed on us to get his hair cut... or so he says... --------------------

I'm going to plan a trip for Thanksgiving weekend. Not sure where or what yet... probably not a biking trip, so I'm guessing it will be backpacking, but I'll leave that open until I know who is going and what gear I'll have by then. So... anyone open to a backpacking trip (probably) for Thanksgiving weekend? Probably leaving on Wednesday evening and coming back Sunday afternoon. I wanted to make a cool past/future trip page but I like Josh's design and don't want to steal/copy it, so I need to design something else... so it may never happen. I just like the fact that he used pics, and if I were to use pics, I'd have to also use tables to keep it clean on the page, and then it would look like Josh's design. Unless...

2 hours later...

Ok, I think this will work. It'll look a lot better when there are more trips, but hey, gotta start somewhere. Actually, I might go back and scan photos from old trips and add them. The only 2 things I might need to work on are the little nav links at the top of the page and the fact that the images are the links to the detailed pages. Lan didn't even see the nav links, and Jarr didn't realize that you click on the images to see more details. I'll have to change that.
