|Along Telephone Line Trail|
|Tree with Ferns Along Trail|
|Shelter Option #2|
I spent a few hours yesterday in the am exploring and connecting trails I've ridden with some less traveled unmapped fire trails and tracks and old 4WD roads. Scouting some more for a planned winter s240.

Went on a great ride this past Sunday. Dave sent out a last-minute email throwing out the possibility of a road ride in this warm December weather we have been having. I met up with Dave and Anthony, plus Tristan and Per from Onion River Sports at Positive Pie Plnfld for coffee. We had a great conversation about endurance and Tristan had us all cracking up with a hilarious pain cave digression.
Afterward Anthony, Dave and I headed out for a 40 mile loop up to Hardwick and back.
It's a little bizarre to have this warm weather in December but we are certainly enjoying it and making the best of it.

|Rugged "road" up Hardwood Mtn.|
|Beaver Pond series|
|Beaver Pond with Mukluk|
|Silver Ledge Trail|
|Silver Ledge Trail|
This was a great 2 part ride I did this month. Both times I didn't have a long time to ride but wanted to connect Hardwood Mtn Road and Silver Ledge trail while exploring a few offshoots in the process. This is a nice route out my backdoor for exploring, skiing and s240 camping. I am aiming for a winter trip to camp in Groton this year.
Doing the ride on the fatbike is such a pleasure. I have had a great time on logging roads, trails, ATV tracks and single track as it just absorbs everything. I compare it to riding in a late 60's american car. It feels like biking on a couch.
If you don't know yet, Surly Fatbikes are 50% off this winter!!

It was a great day. Nice temps cool and breezy. The trails were highly varied but mostly rugged wide singletrack. There also seem to be many class 4 type roads about though. Many of the trails around the pond are also ski trails in winter.
Looking forward to further explorations soon.
