Sand Day Sunday

A happy day in the forest. Huntsville State Park is in fine condition. There is a new bridge on Chinqapin. Some fire damage. And lots and lots of sand. It's like riding on the beach at times!

I like riding the sand. It is fun. It teaches me countersteering and drifting. My technique is to keep my reactions and weight through the bottom bracket. Then retain just a bit of light contact with the seat. Keep the butt wiggling like you're doing the funky butt to steer!

Naturally, one cannot write of the doing the funky butt in the sand without mention of the Funky Butt!
