Was fucking beautiful.

It started off kinda slow, as I was up til 4 am doing laundry and shit, but then, as I woke up, I really felt out of it, Not sure. why. I don't smoke, if you are thinking it had anything to do w/ 4/20. :)

But I honestly woke up, low blood sugar, and no matter how much coffee I downed, I simply could not wake up.

I was late, late for a day of digging on some trails in my friends yard. thought they would be small, but they are massive. Like beyond my current realm of ability massive.

So, I got my bike together, sporadically looking for parts, threw the shovel and tamper tools on top of my car, and headed out for the ferry.

Little did I know, due to my inherent zombie-like state this AM, i left my pedals, wrenches, and tools @ the hosue.

misse the ferry by a few minutes, then scrambled to my old place of employment for parts, then headed to said friends.

by this time, it's 1 pm, and I am 3 hours+ late. At least its' sunny outside!

So, I wanted to talk to luke, the kid who came out to me, about our mutual gay friend, who I came out to the other night via IM, but he wasn't having any of it.

our friend, who started the trails we were digging today, came out to him the other night, and I am not supposed to know, but it's still eating at me. I just need to man up and tell luke straight up, I am gay, I came out to t, etc...

but haven't yet.

So we dug some lines today, built a pretty solid pump track @ the bottome of the property, and built a sender, that when it gets packed, will be over 30 feet.

It felt good digging in the dirt, and throwing pile after pile of sod and soil all afternoon in the sun. I need to do more of that. It's almost a spiritual thing.

the more you put into a jump, the more it becomes apart of you. And, it will help me get in shape, alot faster. haha.

or not. far too out of shape for that kinda labor...

and if there's no reward in it as far as riding, where's the motivation?

Easy...

They pay you. And you wouldn't be out of shape for long ;-)
