Bikes, Fire, Dogs, Beer, Smores, Midnight

Last night John, Jim and I rode the JCC as we do most Wednesday nights. This time, however, John was man enough to stash a 5 gallon bucket in the woods near the top of the hill where we usually break. He did this a few hours before the ride. Incidentaly, he locked his young kids in the car as he ran off into the woods with said bucket. Must have been a real scene for anyone who may have happened to be looking out their window as he disappeared into the woods. Don't get me wrong...he's a good Dad....just a little kookoo for cocoa puffs, if you catch my drift....

Normally, each of us carries a can of beer or two for a trailside, nightride break. This time, John's bucket was filled with ice, beer, hot dog wieners, buns, graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, mustard and chipotle hot sauce! After the customary hang-out sesh on John's front porch, we got on the bikes and headed for the hills. Yes, one can ride to the trails from John's neighborhood. How many MTBers are that fortunate?

We finally arrived at the top where the bucket was stashed, Jim gathered dead-fall and made a rippin fire. We each found long, skinny sticks to skewer the dog into the fire. There is no better hot dog than one cooked over a campfire! Not even a ball park dog can compare. It's that good. After a couple of dogs, we skewered the marshmallows and made smores! Mmmmm Mmmm! Tasty!

Oh yeah, the ride was awesome! Great spring weather, trail's in super shape, couldn't ask for better company. Good times. Thanks Jim and John!
