Its been a couple weeks since some local development has occurred. Prime November conditions have let me turn my focus to taking longer trips to some areas I haven’t spent much time at this year. After some awesome sending trips and realizing I feel stronger than ever, I knew I had to be irresponsible this continue reading….
Its November and we are having some really unseasonable weather (I am not complaining!). Time to take advantage and get outdoors.
