55 degrees this afternoon - perfect temp for riding! I skipped out of work early since
it's supposed to rain on my regular Thursday ride (again).

The "warm up." Up & down a few hills on the prairie. I'm headed for the woods at the top of
the photo.

Ascending through the clouds - of queen anne's lace. My, what a nice smell, too.

Rolled over the prairie and to the woods, with some nice songs playing in my head. Through luck and work, we (3 local MTB'ers) have ended up with 4 miles of wooded singletrack. A few dozen equestrians keep it packed down, sometimes a little too well.
It ain't an epic, but it's a darn fine short story.

The "shore"

Tight and twisty - I can't wait to ride this new section at night. It will be spooooky :)

Gratuitous tittie shot.

What I didn't notice at the time I took the photo was the nice stand
of marijuana growing right behind her.
Cows won't eat pot - it really has no natural enemies (except for the U.S. congress).

new rule: include town and state and trail name!

I was just wondering myself, where dat trail at?? (Not for pot-procuring purposes, however.)

If not lat/longitude, at least the state!

Sorry to be so obscure, but the land manager doesn't want the trail publicized. I know that must sound heavenly to a lot of people with crowded trails, but I think it sucks. Oh well, we're pretty darn lucky that he lets us ride there at all.

And as far as the weed goes, don't even think about fooling with my stash - my guard cow will fock you up! :D

Hey Simpleton,

Want to work out some sort of goodwill Nebraska to Iowa ride? You show me that trail, and I will show you any of the local rides here in the Omaha area?

That is, if you have not been to them before, and wish to check them out.

Lewis and Clark?
Platte?
Swanson?
Manawa?
Branched Oak?

And no, I don't care about those marijuana plants. There is a ton of the stuff growing at Manawa already heh. Though now that I announced this, they will probably all disappear. last time I saw them they were already starting to form little budlets. No crystals.. just budlets...

Back to riding though... interested?

Shoot me an email - I'd be glad to be anybody's personal guide out there, & I'm tired of riding by myself! Like I said, it's not the longest of trails (It's about 5 1/2 miles one way & we ride it as an out & back) and it's a little rough in places from the horses, but it's a very nice "middle of nowhere" buzz with some pretty nice singletrack.

And, yes, I'd love to ride some NE trails with a local as well - I'd really like to ride Platte. I'm planning on visiting a relative in Beatrice in the next month or so. If you want to play guide please send me an email. Thanks for the offer!

I know from experience, er, uh, it's none of your business how I know this, but lots of animals will eat pot plants. Deer, rats, and rabbits, to name a few.

Probably because they don't have any matches ;-)

Ah………Thanks for that. I was once a lonely prairie boy but then I moved to the big city and the hot desert. There is nothing like prairie riding. Tacky black soil, twist riverbank trails and fun deep tree stands. I miss it, really, even the mosquitos (NOT REALLY). Thanks again.
