Talked to a few riders last night. Trails were excellent to pretty good. Rail grades were light on snow, hitting some rocks but very ridable. 102   I heard was fantastic. We are short on snow right now but from what I heard wet areas are frozen over. Two inches forecasted for today on weather underground but John Dee’s forecast looks a lot more promising. Let’s hope John’s Forecast is coming to us.



This is the story of a young Seattle college student flying in the right seat of a small plane with an old pilot.

The pilot has a heart attack and dies. The young blonde lady passenger frantically grabs the mic and calls out  “May Day! May Day!  Help me!  Help me! The pilot just had a heart attack and is dead and I don’t know how to fly. Someone help me! Please help me!”

     She then hears a calming voice on the radio saying: “This is Sea-Tac Air Traffic Control.  I hear you loud and clear. I will talk you through this and get you back on the ground. I’ve had a lot of experience with this kind of problem. Now, just take a deep breath, stay calm, and everything will be fine!

“Now give me your height and position.  
She replies, “I’m 5′ 4″ and I support Joe Biden.”

“O.K.”, says the calm voice on the radio.

“Now slowly repeat after me: “Our Father, who art in Heaven.”
