From the Washington Post today:
"If I understand the history correctly, in the late 1990s, the President was impeached for lying about a sexual affair by a House of Representatives led by a man who was also then hiding a sexual affair, who was supposed to be replaced by another Congressman who stepped down when forced to reveal that he too was having a sexual affair, which led to the election of a new Speaker of the House who now has been indicted for lying about payments covering up his sexual contact with a boy.

Yikes."
-Orin Kerr
A thought following the indictment of Dennis Hastert.

Couple of us rode in Cashmere over the holiday weekend and it was outstanding. The trails were mint, the dirt was perfect, and we didn't encounter any motos after the first 10 miles. We started the ride at Red Devil trailhead and got in the six mile warmup before the climb up Devils Gulch. Once at the intersection of Devils and Mission Ridge, we rode out on MR trail to the forest service road, and came back, skipping the upper section of DG. After the DG descent we pedaled back down Mission Creek road to the campground. Total mileage was a bit over 30 miles with 7,100' of climbing, per my old phone's GPS. I highly recommend this ride if you've put in the prep for an all day singletrack adventure.

Today I learned that the Beatles took a train ride in 1964 from NYC to DC in less time than it takes today. Less time. On the same tracks. Wait, what?
The most important railways in America keep getting worse, and if we don’t fix them soon, we’re looking at a future of endless delays and tragic accidents.

Yikes. I was just reading an article about the Shimano e-bike technology, and moments later a crowdsourcing ad about e-bikes showed up as a post here in this group. Weird! Well, I removed the post as I don't think that e-bikes belong here. We all cool with that?

Wow. Now THAT is a hearse.  A freaky, steampunk hearse.

The kind of hearse that drives through the town, so everyone can view the deceased...much more akin to the old mortician's viewing carriage, that's for sure.

Anyone else using Trailforks.com from Pinkbike for trail info? Looks like a pretty good site though many lesser-known Washington State trails are missing from the directory.

The ULTIMATE trailside hack: repairing a frame with rebar found on the trail. FSR = Found Some Rebar, anyone?

And yes, he rode it out. I know that for a fact.

Though the ocean-side rooms are recently renovated, the east-facing rooms may not be. If you're staying on the second floor, find out if your ocean view is blocked by an a/c unit, or above the nightclub on the 1st floor. Also be warned that guests above may be loud, and the front desk is largely unconcerned about the noise.
