Riding.Millcreek-Dawson Park

Rode into the darkness today and it was a little depressing . Winter which has been here in all it`s cold anguishing glory for a little while now is starting to get me down . I miss my singletrack

place to stop and warm up , or smoke some crack ,
or bring a hooker , or smoke some crack with a
hooker , or hide out after you robbed a liquor store ,
or freshen up in the middle of a hike , or learn how to
play crib , or do some cocaine get really messed up
and try to swim across the river , or dump a body .
the last one actually happened here , and I`m sure I`m
not far off with the others
