damn elves!!!

First off, Mr. Bacastow gets the inaugural "crazy'r than the Dutch" award for commuting from Walnutport to my place in Jim Thorpe to ride on Friday morning. He set out on his mountain bike roughly around 8:30 after his wife dropped him off in Walnutport. He negotiated vicious head winds and very cold morning temps along 248. Then, continued along the Lehigh Canal Rail Trail into Jim Thorpe meeting us at the 903 bridge just in time for the ride. The Dutch Eagle came in a close second by putting up for the night atop of Mt. Pisgah in the cabin with only a wool blanket and a few warm rocks from the fire in 20 degree temps.

A tough ride insued riding mostly singletrack and very little of anything else. North Pisgah had it's revenge on me. That is one narly trail! After resting up after the ride, I made my way to the local watering hole to find Mad Elf's for $3! Can't just have one at that price. Maybe six...
