Hello friends and family. Things are good here in
I was just released from the primary presidency and am now the new young women’s president. I am looking forward to working with the young women. They are all kind, good girls.

The down hill was, as always, extremely fun. It drops down the

The trail isn’t a loop so you have to watch out for riders coming up as your going down, but you can see far enough ahead to be able to get some decent speed.
Your moment of ZEN......
