At a Starbucks in Castaic, if you must know. No access in Pine Mountain Club, and I'm now returning to the mountain, doing a brief catch-up. Cheers and huzzahs to Chris Low, Karis Frankian, and Grace Zamudio for their weekend heroics, and to all other SCV racers. Hope to catch up on posting results and pix on my return to Oregon.
I was snowed in over Friday night and into mid day on Saturday.
