Testing out the knee the past couple of days with some short rides, still hurts to climb or really push a big gear, also each revolution you can hear an audible "CLICK" but it appears to be every other revolution now. During the winter I attempted (notice I said that) some snowboard tricks that I could not stick, now my shoulder is STILL hurting, that one is really getting annoying and frustrating. OK WHINE OFF. Dehns is ROCKIN and firming up nicely, and Memorial day is fast approaching, I'll leave you with some stolen pics from Sylvan Island for your veiwing pleasure.

This is Sylvan Island, somewhere there are pieces of my right knee lying around, I think this is a Trans Iowa 3 ending injury, it sounds like someone is enjoying a nice bowl rice crispy's when I bend it now. More on that later, I just hope its not a season ender. This just in, they are installing a new cell tower at Dehn's, it could effect the "bridge of death" trail, we'll have to see how close they come to it. Maybe the next time I post it will be GOOD news... Also I apologize to any youngsters who witnessed my crash, there may have been a few choice words uttered as I hit the deck right in front of a bunch of spectators...potty mouth anyway. They call me BRUUUUUUCE Amanda alone and out front The "Hammer" and Jeremiah Tryin to hold em off, pre knee plant (photos taken by Conner Brakeville, also on the mend)

Skeeter Park in Burlington "Oh I'm a Lumberjack and I'm OK, I sleep all night and I work all day" Nice and cold this weekend, had to ride in the morning while it was still frozen cause when it warmed up we had GOO for trails. Speaking of trails, Dehn's is lookin really good after team ATLAS and I did massive trail maintenance on Sunday. We were able to remove the last of the deadfall trees, clean the ENTIRE 5+ miles, and we even got to ride our handy work afterwords. Needless to say that without Tracy, Amanda and Nick it would have been a long trail to rake, MANY thanks Kids!!! I will post pics when I figure out my "new" camera, The old one quit working after I drop...oops I mean it just quit working, trying to take a picture of a proverbial flock of seagulls eating turds from the gambling boat, thanks to the walton family heirs for replacing it for me! The Sylvan Island Stampede is this Sunday Hope to see all the usual suspects from IOWA and ILLINOIS.
