I must be bored and I don't have anything else to say!

There are two differences from yours to ours, though. Our trails are mostly dry and dusty. You don't slip, but it's hard to stay close or pass.
We also have SERIOUS vertical. There aren't too many trails that just casually roam through the rolling hills. We're talking fierce switchbacks with sheer drop offs and no soft ferns to land on. In an area we ride in summer called Redcone you could justifiably change jets during the loop - 7,000 to 12,500 above sea level.
Last year Milkman made the trip to ride with Bryan. Well, I guess he waxed Bryan riding in mud and roots in Missouri, but Bryan left them on one of our rolling trails. Milkman said it took a while to get used to riding off-camber switchback ledges looking over cliffs.
The only time we come across mud is crossing a beaver bog. It's usually flat and mossy with that real black stinky stuff. Fun to throw on the guys behind you, but bad to get stuck in!
Come out any time. We'd love to show you around.
