With the weather being what it has been lately, cabin fever had set in hard. We found a excuse to drive to Boulder and pick up a bike we got off Craigslist. Then ran over and took Jake out on his new(to him) Jekyll. Weather was awesome, trails were pretty much dry.

This was me returning to the car after being informed my helmet was missing. I'm going to use the excuse it was my first real ride in Colorado this year and leave it at that.

Returning triumphant with my helmet intact.

Jake making his dad proud.

When I went back to retrieve my helmet Jake got artsy with his bike.

Here's a bit of video also : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTGyXO5w9Qk

Great ride. I love this trail. Can't wait to go back with my youngest son also. Soon Joab soon!

Backpacking food

Jake and I are trying some new freeze dried meals. Been awhile since I've eaten any. Chili mac was good. The cheesy lasagna wasn't great. You can eat it but you better be hungry.
