Back to the Motherland
Travel day today to head up and pre-ride the 7Springs 24 hr course. I stopped up here after Big Bear a while back but had a bit of trouble finding the entire course, mainly because of new construction on the mountain and poor marking. I spent many years in and around PBurgh a while ago and it always feels good to be back. Granted dahnt-on Somerset isn't the Burgh but its close enough to make me smile.
Man I thought I knew how to pack a car for a road trip but I spotted a true master of the trade on the way up here:
He was flyin' in the fast lane up 64, so I caught his wheel and pulled a slingshot off the draft to make a sneaky pass:
Got to give him a 10 on the use of tie-downs and bungee cords, He did save some $$$ by not using a rack.
Reports on the course to follow.
