Managed to make it through the first day without going bat-shit crazy.

I consider that to be a major accomplishment. Had to work today, so didn’t get a chance to ride but am planning on getting out there tomorrow.

Weather is okay … mid-50s in the day, 30s at night … the local Phoenix weathercasters are referring to the weather as “frigid” … apparently, they’ve never been to Minneapolis or SL,UT in the wintertime.
