Sorry, life got in the way today and I wasn't able to make it out there to drop the pavers off. I will be in Northville next weekend so I will likely drop them at Hines. Will let you know.

I rode to the trail about 2 this afternoon and arrived in the parking lot to meet and chat with a guy from California riding a super cool flat black carbon Yeti SB66. He had just got done riding the trail with a buddy of his. He drove a blue Tacoma very similar to mine, but 7 years older. I then rode all of the loops enjoying the warm fall sunshine, the colorful, crunchy leaves and just being out in the woods on such a wonderful day ! The trail is in awesome shape right now, all clear of dead fall and only a few muddy spots in the Lucky Dawg section. Leaves are falling, but the trail is still easy to follow.
Kicked up a few deer and the other animals were busy doing what they need to do.

Stopped by Super Fine for a refreshing ice cold Canadian beer and then came home to eat a delicious Jet's BBQ chicken pizza with my wife and oldest daughter/boyfriend. Gotta enjoy the little things....(Zombieland rule!)

I love mountain biking because I haven't found anything that is more FUN !!
Of all the paths you choose in life....make sure some of them are DIRT !!

Or, let me know when you want to ride, ibisman, and I’ll meet you out there on my fat bike as well. I haven’t tried it on the MT trails yet. Better yet, I want to try out my light so we could do it in the evening if you’re interested. Evenings work better for me anyway. Obviously going to take like a week though now for it to dry out. Gary, you need to host an evening trail ride!
