Giving Thanks Ride

I haven't blogged in a while. Here's the recent high(low)lights:

  • Headed out for a ride Saturday, chain broke, no tools, coasted home.
  • Took the remote control airplane out, crashed it.
  • Ate lots of good food for Thanksgiving.
This afternoon Jolene and I head up into the foothills for a ride. The hillsides look dead with all the leaves gone and the grass brown, but the different look has it's charm.

We thought we'd have to stay low, but conditions were surprisingly good so up we went. Betty then Upper Belt (Buckle?), then 051 over to Dry Canyon.

There was still some snow on Upper Belt, but it was still OK to ride. It was warm enough (low 50s) that I was comfy in shorts.

Nice view today.

Coming down into Dry Canyon was mostly good, but the steeps spots were a bit slippery with ice and mud.

Zipped down Dry Canyon then took BST back. Felt good to get out for a ride.

Your RC airplane post piqued my curiosity since my son has asked for one for Christmas. I see that you have now received all the parts and taken it out on its maiden voyage. Any chance you could do a review of your setup?

DB - While I my only flight experience has been crashing, I think I know enough to at least give a parts list and some other tips. I'll try to get a post up this week.
