My goal this year since my time is so limited is to get both of the girls riding like they have a brain. Phebes has issues that prevent her from high performance goals, but it would actually be great for her to do some trail work. If I could get someone to ride the spotted monster it might be do-able to get them both trail worthy again. A year off certainly hasn't done them or me a bit of good. Journey is FAT, Phebes is CRANKY, and it is making me feel OLD. Hells bells on that I say! Spring is just around the corner and I can't wait.
