The Truck got sick. It is kinda like when your dog or your kid gets sick. You worry about them, you take them to the vet/doctor and then you watch them alot to see if they will puke on the floor because if they start eating grass you know that is coming.
So on Friday, we got up and going early. Took the truck into the Dodge dealer in Hayward. They said they would take good care of it and try to make it better. I gave them the keys, and a few phone numbers that they could try to get me at - told them I would call them in the afternoon. (Liz was proud of me that I just went off and rode my bike, instead of stressing over the truck.)
Given that is our only vehicle up here, we had decided to load up both bikes and take them with us to Hayward - drop the truck and ride the singletrack back to Seeley OO highway and the cabin. After getting ourselves lost a bit in Hayward trying to find our way out to the trailhead, we finally did - and it was a spectacular ride.
Later, the truck was fixed (radiator hose and clamp busted, and probably had busted along time ago). Good as new.
The summary of which is
- 23 miles of singletrack
- point to point
- Hatchery trails - a little more rocky and technical
- Makwa trail from Mosquito Brook (an apt name, do not dally here) to Gravel Pit, to HwyOO - flowy up and down, berms and rollers. Great fun.
- 100% singletrack.
- No right turns.
More to come as a final entry after the weekend. In the mean time, enjoy a few photos and a video.
