Don't forget to breathe...
... or to blink. I was riding Birdland tonight and a contact lense fell out. I've worn contacts for 25 years and I've had one fall out three times. Two times was while riding trails. I have to remember to blink while white-knuckling it through the sets or the wind dries my eyes out. I worked really hard on the jumps last week before I left so they were sun-baked and running fast tonight.
I built the above jump a couple weeks ago. I used really muddy dirt to shape it and it was taking a long time to dry out. I poked all those holes in it with a rake and it dried right up. I noticed today that my perforations had become pre-fab housing for ants. They were stoked until I came charging through their neighborhood.
