Earning Turns (Assload of Miles for Early Season Riding)

With the exception of one DiK, the remaining four of us all put in serious miles for minimal riding, and it was well worth it.

The Boloners:

Myself, Power:  500 miles one way
BP, Dong:  273 miles one way
Kath, Not Pukey:  300ish miles one way
Tim:  300 miles one way
Dan, DiK:  75 miles one way (ass)

While I will continue NOT to break my East Coast news embarago, some comments on this weekend's mega mileage trip are necessary.  5 Boloners in Killington with 5 cars.  That's how BM keeps it green all year long.  Roughly, the gang logged in excess of 2,800 miles for three open trails at Ktown.  I think it would be impossible for ANYONE to question a Boloner's dedication to riding. 

Saturday's mushy sludge was plenty rideable at the higher elevations but quickly rutted out and turned to a color reminiscent of the Mid-Atlantic.  The trails lower down consisted more of rock ollies and avoiding running water and mud than powder turns, but I'll take it at least.

I seem to really be utilizing lists and short sentences, so I'll highlight the weekend via bullets:
  • High point:  First shot of rumplemeinze in the 2010 season - delicious, refreshing, minty.
  • Comedy gold:  Dan nailing himself in the throat, popping a cork out of his wine
  • Drinking achievment:  Dan/Tim for dueley red-eyes at the Wobbly
  • Exceptionally Stylish moment:  BP riding in his girly leather jacket, earning the descriptor "faggy 70s shit"
  • Random Hero of the weekend:  The Hammer hanging out at the Wobbly during the Wild Stallions premiere
  • Sweet Air Award:  Tim's backside 180 to mud plant
