Sam Reynolds, pro rider, backed off from riding this years Red Bull Rampage competition.  This may have been the most courageous decision of all. Is rising life and limb worth it? Probably not, but its all but inevitable because we cannot help but push limits!  I discuss this and more, such as my Wilderness First Aid class that I took this weekend.

This was about my 30th episode--I think i was just beginning to really figure out the pace and sound stuff. I think I ranted after a ride on one of the rails to trails paths nearby about some roadies doing, well, roadie shit. And I guess I gave some advice on climbing. Enjoy and I should be back live next week!
