That night Jason rolled into town and the next day we set out for a spin with some folks. It matters not where we went. Suffice to say that we had a lovely spin across a lot of terrain.

Big ol' Moab ride: Priceless. Truck and cold beer waiting at bottom of Portal: Exquisite. The inimitable Rally Dawg was there to greet us and chase windshield wipers.
