I firmly believe that blogs are for those with something to say. There are SO MANY COOL PEOPLE out there, saying REAL STUFF -- masterfully! I visit their blogs... and I am SO incredibly moved by what people have to say, and the way they have to say it.

The only real problem *here* is that: I honestly don't have anything to say:)
I no longer know how to tell stories. Or maybe I have none to tell?

So. You're going to have to just deal with PIX only.

Pix from 2 weekends in Salida. Pix from my perspective. Pix of things I love and perspectives I have.

I love the following, in no particularly special order.
Love This.

What i see here... is a VERY smooth path. No seriously. This is ridiculously smooth.

Does anyone else see what I see? Yeah. Tell me about it!

Oh goodness gracious. Yummy, yummy, PIE. Singletrack LIFE pie.

OOOO! More of that! HI ED! Whatchya dooin'?

And that would be TOM -- riding off the front. Into a beautiful afternoon. Linking some KICKASS trail. Juss sayin'.


This would be my HAIL THE UNIVERSE SALUTE ... I'm very good at this. Because the Universe is very good at THAT.

I zee a ZenTree. What do you see?

HA!!!!  What do you think this conversation is about? This cracks me up out ffin' loud. Ed on left -- Tom on right. It's a consultation, I think.

GIDDY UP (down) Honey Butter Cup!

THIS is one of my faves. EssENCE. Don't know why. Just IS.

It can be big out here. Especially when it's windy.

Also one of my faves. It's just such an accurate ... image.

Beautiful Land, don't you think?

Kind of On Yer Knees honorable, eh?

THIS land...

Tom, making FLOW happen

Mmmm... hello, Pony. Thank you, Pony. I love you, Pony.


More to come -- because MIFF is here (for 2 more months) and it's about to get HEC-TIC.





I've changed my mind.
If I have sunshine, trail, pony and friends within the same view, then I'm DEFINITELY winning.
Blog or not.

So, Spring Break days 2, 3, and 4 All.Mixxed.Up.

SpinnBlissed with Ez AND Jen one day!

We are doing a very high-tech test here.

 Scott is WINNING!
 I feel very lucky when friend-worlds collide. Makes me feel like everything is juuuust RIGHT.
 Shazaaam! I now know what Scott's secret power food is. Who wants to guess?
 Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww...... yes. Love the DESERT.
 Seriously. Who is going to guess Scott's extra go-go energy food? I dare you. And no, it's not Mexican food.
 By the way, it's ffin' GORGEOUS in the desert. If you couldn't tell.
 Re-learning to ride. NO VROOMZoom for me. Just straiiiiight up piddle pedal goodness. Right Ez and Scott? :)
 Let's see -- while Ez was off working the Intervals... Scott was showing me around Sagauro City.
 We timed it just right. What is THAT barreling down the paveway?
 It's ESZTER! Last interval done -- down for some warm down dirt laps.
 I might want to leave right near here.
 The real reason Jen, Ez and I sauntered our freebliss way on the AZT (somewhere) -- was to see the kitty and to eat ice cream. DUH.

So I would say: I WIN. More to come! Yes, really! Jj



losing the blogging battle, that is.

i had a spring break this year.
a much needed respite from the concrete and computer chaos that is the center of my current life focus.
oh.... and a break out from REEEECOOOVVEEERRRRRYYYYYY.... which i'm just SO FFING OVER.

THANK YOU EZ and SCOTT for hosting a magnificent spring break. i forgot what those were all about :)

I will start with just a few pix from ... well ... random land. I'll save others and try and become a regular picture-posting mtb ADDICT again. Try.Try.Try.

This is beauty. All lovable.

I arrived in AZ on a PLANE with a massive Pony Box -- thanks to Ez.
We went straight to dinner (Tacos) with Scott. Not his usual tacos, but I thought they were fucking perfect.
AND, we could walk around at night in SHORTS. My jeans and boost were....... uhm.... sweaty.

Ez, taking a moment. To ponder. AZT MADNESS.

Day 1 found us out on a big loop of singletrack.
I've not been able to ride single track since December 8th.
Knee recovery is ... not finished. But AZ Sunshine Dirt was a spiritual MUST. So. It happened.


Our ride was awful. Can't you tell?

This part was fun. But not as fun as it could have been were it not for it being DAY FFING ONE of singletrack. BAH.

Lost. Jeny

Happiness Found
 I miss riding with my friend. A LOT.

Day 1 was perfect. A perfect THOROUGH reintroduction to my singletrack self, my pony, my friends, the sunshine, dirt ... sweat. OMFG. It was IN MY VEINS and on my skin and swirling around with my spirit.


Days 2, 3, 4 + to come....
