About MeI travel with my wife, Diane, our three rescue dogs (plus a fussy cat) around the country in a creaky RV, searching for singletrack nirvana. We love to ride and meet folks everywhere and are the producers of Trail TV, which can be seen here on Singletracks.

Sometimes on very long, hot events, like the Berryman Trail Epic or Syllamo's Revenge, I'll start getting the nagging sensation of cramps but never really the full on deal except maybe once or twice. I dismiss most of the things people do (pickle juice…
