Another great ride... oops, not a great ride without an endo.



Nome is notorious for sudden wind and ground storms. That was the theme today, blue sky above ground storm below. It's what can make travel so dangerous and interesting. Many a person has been caught in a sudden whip of a ground storm, including myself, it can be freaky and disorientating any non-windproof clothing you might as well be naked.



There is no cover, no way to block the wind and one mistake can lead to a very quick snowball effect. Today was pretty mild and I didn't go too far but its always good to get out in it.



Then it was a great moose roast with friends! I'm starting to like these Christmas Holidays...
