    i was having so much fun riding and hanging out that i did not think to
    take pictures until day 3, when only a couple other people were around,
    so these pictures only show part of the whole story.

  4. I did notice that with the exception of Frank, HOW was devoid of actual
    MUnis. Jim Vadala had the same problem and broke the seatpost and pedal
    of his Onza 20'' over the course of the weekend. I advise them to bring
    MUnis next time ... if they can, of course.

    Overall the weekend was pretty damn awesome. For the first time riding
    serious technical MUni, I'd say I did pretty well (and my new KH
    performed beautifully). I did discover my weak point, though ...
    natural trials. I can't do it at all. I need actual flat, tractionful
    surfaces to ride on in order to do trials well at this point, not
    slippery logs and wobbly, uneven rocks.

    Also, I can vouch for the fact that Kevin's a good deal better than he
    appeared at SSBM. The way he was playing, I could probably have beaten
    him. And that would have been a travesty. I can hold my own, but I'm
    no heavyweight.

    Apparently a really good weekend!

    Except for the car backing over my Muni, It really was a terrific
    weekend. Thank you Joe, you really out did yourself for us.

    i own a muni, but we were cramming 4 people and gear into a single car
    so i could only bring one uni. naturally i chose the trials as trials
    is what i do. so even though i was not equiped to ride trails, i was
    able to do some natty that i would have been unable to do on a 24".
    also, i rode much more trials over the weekend than muni. friday night
    a few of us travelled into town and rode for a couple hours, which was
    great. saturday morning we rode trails but i stopped at every decent
    looking natty line and hit that up. following the muni ride, john,
    nick, joey and myself rode trials around joe's, which was by far my
    favorite part. i landed some lines that i did not know i could do.
    then sunday morning nick, john, and myself rode trials around joe's
    again.

    the trials setup was great. a will explain a few of the lines that we
    frequented the most.

    the first was an easy hop onto a rock, a gap onto a stump, then over
    onto a 2x6 plank (fat side), a hop onto a small landing area onto a
    stump that was connected to a great ladder type skinny that was probably
    20' long. then there was a big pie of logs that was a tad difficult to
    manage, then a short log ride, gap across some perpindicular logs,
    finishing on a pile of logs and off. i never landed the line this way
    but got it in the reversed direction. nick got it the right way and
    joey of course nailed both.

    the next was a ramp up a ladder type bridge thing (similar in the first)
    onto a log, a tricky manuevering through some branches sticking up, then
    either a ride along the log or a ride on some 2x4s. i think all four of
    us completed this line.

    a third one that joey and i did was a hop onto a 2x4 (from the second
    line i explain) then maybe a 6' gap to pedal grab on the log.

    other than that we just played around on all the other stuff.

    friday night we watched joey's copy of spaced out.

    a note on SSBM: it is true that nick won the first match, but there
    were three people playing and he had a much higher percentage when i
    died, so i hardly think that this example means anything. then i beat
    both nick and kevin in 1v1 matches at least 4 times each. they didnt
    win once.

    I had a blast. My kids had a blast. Thanks for the pictures. Can't
    wait to see more.

    I'm sorry to say to those of you that had to leave Sunday at noon, that
    the trail we rode yesterday afternoon was the best of them all. Massive
    amounts of dry granite boulders with all sorts of really gnarly trials
    moves. We'll have to ride that section on Saturday next time!

    Someone left their Minolta battery charger in the dining room. Lmk,
    I'll mail it to you.

    Didn't see the pants yet.

    Sometime in mid February. Considering we had 25 competitors there last
    year, I wouldn't be surprised if we get 35-40 this time around.

  14. I just got back now, that was quite possibly the coolest thing I've been
    to.

    Thanks Joe (and for mailing me my battery and charger :( ) - I'll email
    you my addy, after I go clean out the car...it smells like a weekend's
    worth of sweatty gear in there.

    After the event, I got to get to a NYUC meeting, and out for dinner with
    Dave Stockton and Lowell, what a great night!

    We skipped seeing lady liberty, but did throw a pizza crust to two
    rats.

    I was able to ride a 45", a 12", and one that the seat post swivels
    freely (on purpose)

    It was great meeting everyone, and I'll see you next year.

    That was a great weekend, eh?

  15. I would also like to take this time to apologize to Joey.

    I wish I could have stayed up later drinking with you guys, but I had to
    get up early and go for a MUni ride the next morning.
