Fall is Coming

Big push for the ending of August 2015.  And it was a crazy busy month with work, trips to see my dad in central VA along with various cousins, biking a fair amount, and limited trailwork.

The last week was really the peak of busyness. Work was insane with shipping issues:

CX Practice
Trailwork Rosaryville
Racing at Motormile Speedway (Drag Racing).
Ad-hoc trimming at Wakefield
MORE Summer Picnic

What a great event yesterday.  The MORE summer picnic was EPIC worthy.  Lots of fun and smiles had.  Tons of people sessioning the skinny of doom of Team XXL and tons of folks riding the hell out of Todd B's skills gear!  I mean if there weren't 5-10 people riding it near constantly between 11 and 4pm I'm shocked and later in the day at times there were 20+ people constantly working on skills.

The Poker Race was huge and tons of fun was had I think.  It made the event way more fun than just some natty old ride in the woods.  People talking good natured trash to each other.  New friendships made.  Bike rode.  Tons of food eaten.  Near perfect amount of hotdogs and hamburgers, we only thru away about 4 hotdogs and maybe 5-10 hamburgers.  Took a ton of chips home for future TNR/Fall Camping Trip.

Afterwards lot of fun and games with skills competition, raffles, and general fun.

The slide of doom returned.  Ribs are sore.  Big smile.

Cleanup was pretty painless and we were mostly done by 5.  I hung till 6 and helped a teammate finish de-marking the course for the last mile or so.

Too much fun.  Can't wait for the camping trip now.

Now to only survive the next 8 days of work and get in some bike rides.
