Bummer/Stoked… Sad to see your old friend go down, but I’m sure you’ll be stoked to make a new acquaintance soon!!

Not to hijack your thread, but here’s my weekend ‘ooops’…

I pulled off the road to take a picture of the gorgeous blue ice on Caples Lake, which doesn’t show in the photo. 🙁 There was a ton of snowmelt running in the asphalt gutter along the road. I guess the water had eroded about a foot of soil from under the gutter because just as I came to a stop, my left front tire broke through asphalt. You can’t really see it, but my rear tire is 8″ in the air. I had to wait a few hours for the tow truck, but the driver wenched it out in about 3 minutes.

Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.
