Ride
Interestingly, Dave and I took a ride today, around 27 miles worth of steady pedaling. We're not in top shape, but we also didn't spend the morning on the couch eating donuts. I leave you with a couple images of Spring springing.

Morris Lake @ Topsail SP
Jazzed from Sunday's taste, I went full bore and spent a couple hours exploring the west and central portions of Topsail SP, especially along the Morris Trail, which was some of the best fatbiking I've ever done. Dunes, sand, water, exploration, more bogs, ...

Bumbling
It's that time of the year, the tennis time of the year.  This past weekend on Saturday I arranged to ride with someone but he couldn't answer the bell, so I did a nice solo 21 miles on Seafoam under some sunny skies. I topped it off with a coffee at Quills...

Free Flying at the Oscars

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Gravity for picking up multiple Oscars last night. To celebrate, here's a view of Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II seen farther away from the confines and safety of his spacecraft than any previous astronaut has ever been. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Challenger's payload bay, McCandless went "free-flying" to a distance of 320 feet (98 meters) away from the Orbiter. This photograph was taken on February 12, 1984.

Longleaf/Point Washington SF
My "real ride", doing a the Longleaf Greenway and some trails in Point Washington SF. I'm gonna be honest. What should be easy wasn't. It's flat, but the sand requires power and the bogs require more power. My original plan was to do the lollipop back to th...

Sunday beach
Sunday morning along Miramar and Topsail beach east of Destin, FL. Yet more fatbiking, but this time in low-60F, sand, breeze, calm. Highlights include beach riding for first time, mud-bogging on fatbiking, what's around the next corner, almost waist deep h...

Squelching the Stir-Crazys
Yet another snow day due to icy road conditions. With the amount of black ice I saw this morning, I decided to not ride and instead took a couple different walks to keep myself occupied. The first was some mid-day walking and birding. I started at Caperton ...

More snow, More fat
Another 2-4" of snow, sleet, ice and stuff. Another snow day out of school. Another lost day of summer. Another snow ride, this about an hour. I didn't have good legs, good mojo. It was very windy out of the north and the snow had a mashed potatoes vibe. It...
