I still believe it is only about the size of your watch.
The rest is just fluff.

F4?

Ahhhh, the good old days of mtn biking illegal trails.
I think most if not all were back in the day.
My buddy had removed the no bikes sign on one trail that went from cabrillo to nisine marks.
This was in the 80ís....89 I think.

Then, they opened Wilder...legal single track? What?

Yeah too many folks out riding. Flow was chewed up bad.
I am stumped at why so bad....

I'm not worthy.

I was looking for you a couple of weekends ago. Rode down Steven's Canyon then back up Montebello.

There is definitely a commonality in behavior among all of those groups except the equestrians.  The equestrians truly have no business being anywhere except on their ranches and I have no problem telling them to go f themselves.

I feel like the problem is people want recognition for mediocrity. They can buy all the gear pros have ,go out and try to experience something they saw in an advertisement. (Everything is an advertisement these days especially outdoor sports movies) When it comes to realizing that there are hundreds of thousands or maybe millions of other people all doing something similar it's a hard pill to swallow.  The fact is they will never get to be in the advertisement.

I want to make some bike jerseys that say "Nobody Cares About You" on the back.


This for what ever reason has been stuck in my head for a while.   I guess I have been over thinking it a bit, which is something I know I can do a fair bit.  I think this can also be thought of as what has been written about and that is, the Myth of the Hero.  We all want to be the hero in some way or form, even if it is the anti hero, which is still a hero.   

The Myth of the Birth of the Hero - A lot of philosophy has been penned here. 

I am now the hero, so I can put this away.  : )
