Welcome back sounds strange for me, now that you’re far away again.
Treepotato and her parents are really nice people and we were happy to
entertain them. Unicyclists of all countries go visit each other!
Treepotato has amazing trials powers, clearing a drop of over a foot
in her very first trials session, and learning the beginnings of bunny

Nice to have you back TP, and even nicer to hear your distance riding has improved. I still want to ride the plym valey trail some time, including the bit down to the Hoe to finish with ice creams.
What are you doing on Sunday?
A little late maybe, but here is photographic evidence to back up that claim. We (Treepotato, my daughter Jorga and myself) played around with some trials obstacles (described here) in front of our house. Treepotato had never given trials a try before, so I think it was pretty amazing that she cleared this drop of 33 cm (13"), and in good style at that. The gentleman in the picture is Treepotato’s father, seemingly a bit worried that she might fall.
Treepotato had also brought her 29’er, and we had planned for a fast ride after dinner, but an endless rainshower threw soot in the food, as the Dutch say. So she’ll have to come back for that one day
Jorga rides a line with some outside help. There’s a ramp behind the cable spool to ride up. I think that later on, all three of us did this one unaided but I don’t have those pictures. Treepotato is watching as well as the neighbour’s son (5). “I know how you do that”, he said.
Someone, how do you attach multiple pics to one post??
