Finally! So glad the red light of summer is about to turn green! The leaves changing for autumn is like watching the stop light for cross traffic turn yellow then red as well. Anxious anxiety! Cannot wait to go! So determined! Still working 2 shitty jobs in hopes of making this winter epic! Screw you summer loving hippies! I was born during a snowstorm and therefor born to shred! I think its time to wax up the rock board just in case! Should probably buy some new tires too! That way I don't end up being "that guy" who drives off of floyd hill on i70 lol Cant wait to ride pow!
