New trail in Auburn

So I was up in Auburn last weekend riding. For those of you who don’t Mt. Bike stop reading now. Anyways a friend of mine told me that he tried this new trail. For whatever reason I thought it was a hiking trail and he didn’t really catch my intrest….or maybe I just forgot. Either way as I was climbing up the Stagecoach trail I saw the trailhead and a bunch of tire tracks heading down it. So I comptiplated taking it later in my ride. So after I went through Manzanita and the Upper Stagecoach trail I was bombing down Stagecoach and I saw the trailhead again. I decided what the hell. Well as you are coming down Stagecoach there is a 15 mph sign and right next to it is the trailhead. This trail is basically a switchback all the way down the hill….and it is a smile inducing one. The first few switch backs are tight and sit on your back tire types. Then it has a short but sweet downieville inspired downhill singletrack. It’s short lived but really fun. If you havent’ ridden it yet, keep your eyes open and take it!!!

Oprah inspired me

What is it with this lady? I need to get a spot on her show so I can cry like the rest of the people…hahaha Anyways the truth is I saw a few minutes of her interviewing some writer of her book of the month and it inspired me to start working on my book again. If you are intrested in reading what I have written so far hit me up on the contact page: HERE and let me know. I’ll send you a sneak peak of the first chapter. If I actually get some hits I’ll continue this story, otherwise I’m thinking I’m going to write more of a newer high tech story.

Haven’t written in …. a long time

I know I’ve been a bad g33k. Oh, well…not like too many of you out there actually take the time to see what’s on my mind. None-the-less, I’m just putting this up to let you know I’m planning on being more active on here. I need to figure out a way to script this to post to myspace for all of you out there that have that site as your homepage. 😉
