One unpopular opinion I hold is that everybody should have a blog, where they just check in a couple of times a week. They/you don’t need to have much of anything to say, just raise a hand and say hi. Here’s what time I woke up this morning, here’s what I had for breakfast, here’s what I thought about when I brushed my teeth. Is it raining where you are? I’d like to know.

I like it and hope I am boring someone or no one with this blog.
Our friends Jen and Derek introduced us to the Mile 18 area for mountain biking earlier this year. Kate is just getting her dirt wheels under control and PBR is a great trail to get started on. However as the description reads below it’s still fun for any skill level.
2 miles of nonstop grins! Nonstop banked turns and features flowing into each other. Very fast and with enough speed you’ll be in the air a good amount of time (though everything is rollable).
This is the perfect trail for intermediates to work on skills, or experts to let it rip. Everyone will be happy with this one.
