Looks like great fun, I still don't have my bike up here, but when I do get it up here I'm definitely interested in joining up for some rides!

Oh super. I always have at least one spare bike to borrow. You could ride the one in the video!

Oh jeez, temptation!

Did you get the group ride done this weekend? If you've got any others coming up, and I've got a hole sometime, yep I'd definitely like to take you up on that offer!

TinyWheel put together a great ride for us on Saturday. It started out around 32 degrees, and ended up a nice 50! Our day began traveling over miles of gravel bars, exploring some single track, and doing lots of small stream crossings. For the first two hours of our ride-we had the entire river valley to ourselves. After running out of south-bound options, TinyWheel took us north along the river's edge, through sand, gravel, mud-you name it! Conditions seemingly changed every few hundred feet as the frozen ground began to thaw out. Riding in the Knik area offers something for everyone-but-you will get wet! Our TWs handled the terrain with ease-and the only thing that stopped our adventure-was discovering ice sheets in the bottoms of some gnarly mud crossings. Wrestling our bikes backwards out of that mess was comical and TW200 saved me when I went in by grabbing my chest protector! It was a great early spring ride in Alaska! The local bush pilots were enjoying it too and we got buzzed several times during our rides. I didn't capture it on film, but one pilot flew at near water level dipping his bush tires in the river for over a mile. It was a great day and the only casualty was my Jimbo Shield which shattered when I stopped to let a side by side pass and tipped over on the downhill side. Everyone got a laugh--except me!

Wouldn't it be great if we could somehow return all our WWII Dads or Grand-Dads for a while and gather them all in one place?
We could treat them to all the beer or hooch they wanted and just marvel at their stories.
Man, just think of that...

This great WWII GI song is a tribute to all of them, especially the brave paratroopers.
This dark, "gallows humor" helped them look death in the face and spit right in his damned eye.

I have 211 civilian/sport jumps but no military jumps, a whole 'nuther ballgame.
But it helps me understand what it entailed.
Admiration & respect to you all - past, present & future.
