11 miles on the Jeremy Ranch Road. It's packed snow up to the Morgan County line and very runnable in trail shoes. Feels a lot like running on packed beach sand which I've done a lot lately. Once you get to the barn the road is considerably less maintained but still runnable for a while in tire ruts. I turned around at 5.5 miles.

So the beach trip was essentially training for snow running at Jeremy Ranch? :-)

Yep. The best part was that it was quiet up there. I crave the solitude sometimes.

From Jake K on Wed, Dec 30, 2015 at 21:10:25 from

Yeah for sure. I bet its really quiet right now.

I have been vanquished for the year. Beware, vengeance shall be mine next year.
