I didn't have the mountain bike today, but as I rode along I noticed all the sand rut trails seemed to have a hard crust on top. That makes for some very nice mountain biking in sand country. When the sand has a frozen top...it is fun time. I almost went back to get it, but it looks like the next couple weeks will allow for nice trail riding. Then, will come the whitetail deer rifle hunt. I do not have nuts big enough to ride around home when that is going on...although I guess a night ride could be possible...even then you would have to stay alert.
