Rail Trail

Mountain biking may not be a big deal to many of you, but if you haven't been on a bike in 25 years it's HUGE. Dee is writing an article about a place that is inaccessible to motorized vehicles, and he'll do anything in the name of research.


Five miles on two wheels, one snowstorm and 120 photos later, he's sitting on the couch with swollen knees and a very proud grin on his face. Good going, dear!

Dee gives all us non breathers hope for better tomorrows. You are both an example of never turning down an adventure.
