I got to Rays in time to ride my Mountain Bike for an hour or so (it was opening night and not a BMX night). My back has been bothering me since the Fall Nationals so taking it easy on the MTB, along with suspension, made for a mellow, fun session.
I spent Saturday and Sunday doing work stuff, including attending this snowboard event. Dudes were landing on the grass and eating crap almost every time. It was rough.
I got back to Rays on Sunday afternoon for the BMX session and it was awesome. Last time I wrote about tears of joy welling up from the awesome runs. This time it was tears of pain from my back, but it didn't seem to get worse as the night progressed. I love that place.
Steven Crandall at Baker's Acres. Apparently Steve took a digger and jammed his wrist shortly after this was taken.
It's hard to believe that a little over a week ago, it was almost 80 degrees out here. Frosty landscape, taken this morning. I really jacked up my back on Monday, trying out a little set from the new roll-in. I need to take it easy for a bit.

This is the Kal-Haven trail. It starts downtown Kalamazoo and goes all the way to Lake Michigan. It passes right near my house. I rode it home yesterday after dropping my van off.
