been riding a bit since i got back, but mostly being a shiftless layabout and wasting my money buying things i don't need on the internet. my legs were pretty dead from having a month and a half without the bike, but they came around quick enough. went for a hike/scramble today up in independence mine state park. really, really foggy. went as far up the one ridge as i felt comfortable doing with noone knowing my whereabouts. basically that means i got to a point where realized my inner pussy, went a little further, took some pictures, then turned around and gingerly made my retreat to a less mellow grade. it was fun though, and i got some good photos out of it.
