I don't know, do you wanna make a prediction?

I'm am going to let my dog out for his morning poopy tomorrow about 6am, during that time I am going to venture deeper into my back yard and check for frozen dirt conditions; if they exist I am going to throw my mountain bicycle into my truck and drive to Beverly Park and ride said bicycle on what are hopefully frozen dirt (and ice and snow and deer poop) trails.

Will post pre maybe riding morning assessment here, stay tuned...

The dirt is somewhere between flaccid and firm so the riding window is oh so narrow.

Ride leaves at 8, done by 9; shoulda got up earlier.


*edit: Great ride! In certain spots you could just feel the sponge like quality of the dirt below, the top was just crusty enough and had a fresh dusting of fluff.
