I have a feeling this will be a downgrade from the Pro4 it's replacing bit I got it free when the Equinox was phased out for the Equinox 2, so I might as well ride it for a bit.

Note the large oak tree in the middle of the lawn.

You can always identify a dogwood by its bark.

Are you saying that you wouldn’t hesitate to do it again? #telling

That’s a couple of notches better than “He wouldn’t STFU”, because that would have swung the “pleasant “ rating over to “a PITA”.

Looks like Water Oak or Cherry Bark Oak.

My club has a ride today where we meet another club halfway between our two towns. It’s an annual Fall event for both clubs called, “Meet in the Middle.” It’s a fun, relaxing day with no heroics or PRs or other hormone infused riding through there will be a few knuckleheads, I’m sure. :D

I graduated from the same building my dad graduated from. It still stands, though I'm not sure it's still a high school. I also had some of the same teachers my dad had, mostly in elementary school.

It was cool here last night. Two genejockey quotes in a row

That's a white oak. There are several other oak species in your neck of the woods. And in New England.

They're generally broken up in to two categories: Red and White oak. There are several species within each, but they'll share a lot of common traits within those classifications. For trees with foliage, the easiest way to tell them apart is the leaves. Red will have the pointy leaf tips whereas White will have the rounded lobes.

A friend has a place @8300 feet in the mountains and she has been mountain biking up there for the last few months. She's a good climber when she's out of shape so after a summer up there she goes to another level.
She invited me to go mountain biking today and gave me several options. I wussed out and picked the easiest route, I think she was a little disappointed. Not the first time I've done that.
