Punched out and heading out

Picture of Nate taking the drop during gate practice.

Got done working for the man today and turned off the phone as I'm done for the next 10 days. Can't wait to load the truck and leave the city for the quite country life up by Wade. Got home after another day in the heat and got the fixie out and tossed the leg over it and headed out for a nice 30 mile ride. I just headed down along the lake and it was maybe about 2 degrees cooler but it was a nice ride again. Then got home and mowed the lawn and packed the gear for the race and got my other clothes ready for the next 10 days. I can't wait to get out and relax and ride.

Nate called and said that he is loving the camp and has learned a lot. He also said that they were doing some skill drills in the grass area and he went down. When he picked himself up he grabbed the bars to remount they were broken. I guess the carbon bars didn't like hitting the ground. With that he gets to sit in the car that follows for the last ride in the morning tomorrow, at least it happen on the last day and he does not miss much. Now I have to pack some bars and my wheel set as the ones he had are whacked out a little and I may have to get them to the master nipple twister Russell to get them in line again. In all he said it has been great and that he is glad he went.

Now I need to get the last things ready and load some of this crap into the truck. See you at the Fire Cracker in 10 days. Later..
