    I'm already looking for the places that I know are good to ride at and
    marking them on maps for next year. I think it would have really helped
    if we hadn't spent so long at serious juggling fixing unicycles but it
    was fun either way... I'm still sore... hopefully if more people come
    we can rent a big van and haul everyone around town to the diferent
    spots.

    Well, we tried this year. Phil took his car in and had the tires
    checked, the guy said they were fine, and Phil asked if they would last
    the trip to Portland, and the guy said yeah, but even then, he was going
    to buy new tires, and for some reason, they wouldnt sell to him or
    something like that.

    Im just glad the tire didnt blowout and send us flying out of control
    at 70mph. There was one point, sitting right behind a semi, and another
    semi to our left, I was just a little scared something would bad happen
    right at that moment.

    Hows the server going?
