    It was being extinguished when I went through, but passable. Probably inhaled a bunch of yucky stuff riding by there though.

    The bike part of my commute was as great as usual, but I decided to drive part way of it and that part was terrifying. It is possible to report a dangerously driving vehicle? A car up ahead was...

    It's insanity, but I must admit I have evaluated Dickey Ridge and Sugarloaf as possible options before. My conclusion was "no way", but I'd be happy to join a group effort to support the insane.
