The Fresco Trail Mystery

After spending Easter Sunday morning listening to Dimmu Borgir and Deicide, I decided to go for a Sugarloaf/ Bare Mt. combo run.  As I was heading up the ‘Loaf, I noticed that some artsy-types had posted engraved golden signs designating this route as the “Fresco Trail.”  Now, I like painting on plaster as much as the next guy, but I had always known this route as the “Sugarloaf Trail” or “the Trail up Sugarloaf” or some times as the “Sugarloaf trail up Sugarloaf.”

Needless to say, it is a mystery as to who renamed the trail.  Perhaps a group of adventure racing art history majors have moved into the Willsboro/Reber area.  Could this be the handiwork of noted hardcore racing art aficionado, David Kvam?

This Thursday's Labor... meet at 1 pm 1812 Homestead.

Regardless of the mysterious trail name. racers will still join me for SLOP FEST Labor #3.. the Erymanthian Boar.  This will be a 3+ mile road race from the Beaver Road to the top of Schoolhouse Hill.  Racers will meet at the 1812 homestead at 1 PM on Thursday.  There will be a carpool from Peru…
