    That's waaaaaaay too early to be starting school.

    And by the way, those teacher meetings and break out sessions will make a profound difference in your ability to overcome each child's miserable upbringing and the effects of their parents' poor excuse for parenting! :whistling: :bang:

    The tradeoff in our district is 3 weeks off at Christmas and we get out June 1st. It's my last year so I'm just gonna let them all run amuck! The admin will like that because it will be "positive" and I won't escalate the situation by telling little Johnny that he will one day actually have to behave in the real world:rolleyes: and not act like a little :poop:!

    Edit: Don't tease me dammit.

    I travel all around So Cal and bring my bike with me. Today I find myself in Lancaster so I thought about playing in the hills here if possible. It's not a regular riding plan but I do come here often now. I'll keep the Wednesday night schedule in mind when planning travel:cool:

    @Luis you can count on me for most Wednesday rides most anywhere as long as I can get there with enough daylight to hit it. I do have lights now...:sneaky:

    The road is not done. They keep working on it and adding more fill. Looks like they want to make the slope consistent all the way to the top.
    I hope they finish soon so we can link the trails up again.
    Come back and ride soon Luis.
