01/24/21 - STT & Luge are almost 100% dry. Any muddy spots are easily avoidable. Picked up a bunch of stolen mail that got dumped near the bottom of Modjeska Grade Rd. and delivered it to the owners after my ride. Good seeing the Brown's, Stu and Cynthia back at the Cook's lot afterwards.
01/17/21 - Had to get a ride on some dirt this weekend as well. Nice seeing Jeff L. and his son in Aliso. Got to TOW at sunset and it was packed with people up there. There were 2 powered paragliders flying above TOW. Saw them back at their cars when I finished my ride. Told them they had plenty of people filming them at TOW. They take off from the soccer fields across from Wood Canyon school.

07/20/20 - A small group paddle around Lido with stops at 10th St and the Lido Bridge. Lots of nice scenery out, landscape, boats, houses and people. Even the huge megayacht Invictus. An amazing yacht owned by a billionaire now moored off of Lido. Fun times.

07/16/20 - Strong Sun rays with fresh breeze until sunset. Daylight start, night time finish. Lower Joplin after the jail has been abandoned. The trail does not exist anymore. Many fallen trees along the creek. Good ride.

06/15/20 - Ken Burton was overgrown, about 2/3rds of the way down, to the point it was grabbing pedals and handlebars. Had to walk a few sections as the bushes and exposure could have been a bad scene.

05/31/20 - Closing Whiting must have sent everyone to Blackstar - I've never seen it so crowded. Ended up parking in the North 40, haha. Counted over 230 hikers. Guess I was a little bored on the climb in. Great ride, though.

05/15/20 - Nice ride. It’s been a long time since I rode some of the single track off Black ⭐️ and they are getting overgrown. Quite a few others out enjoying a ride. A new chainring quieted down the drivetrain.
05/15/20 - Harding was empty except for a couple deer. A few Jeeps at four corners. Joplin also empty and awesome. After the washout, Lower Joplin is a no go. Rose Canyon is overgrown with poison oak. I had to HAB out. Should have just gone down the Luge.

05/11/20 - Noon ride (bad idea). Not very hot but the Sun was merciless. First ride after hematoma of left leg. My leg did good but I got exhausted because I was out of shape after several weeks not riding due to recovering. (NEW CHAIN)
