no time vid

I've been out for almost a week now and work is stacked up so you'll have to survive on a lame video I shot yesterday while out for a single speed mountain bike ride with the pooch. Can you feel the excitement?

This was my first ride on the new Nokian Extreme Gazza 294's and man did they do the trick. They are a bit narrower than my Ignitors and much narrower than my Rampages but with yesterday's conditions of crusty snowmobile trails with lots of icy areas they were a godsend. If I had been running the rampages I would have either had to go really slow and tentatively or ended up with a broken hip and some serious ice rash. I vote for the extremes.

While on the ride I noticed four bald eagles haning out in an area I have NEVER seen any before and for a while I couldn't figure out why they were there. That was until I turned around and saw this hiding behind a rock...

What a lovely sight this was to see, a deer pretty much stripped clean. You can imagine how fun it was to keep the dog out of this...

And now, what I like to call a Jeff Kerkove photo op...

Man they didn't leave a shred on that thing for a mid ride snack!!

No, no ,no, You're CLOSE to the J.K. move, but we can see your arm. The key is to make it look like you have a photo following you! ;) Don't F with ONE of the photo blog masters. The other being Jason Sager.

Glad to see the studs are working out. We have no snow here, so no need, THANK GOD!!

Seems you are a bit tardy with your '08 bio my friend. Giddy up before Big G// Al rips you a new one! HA!
