Hit the regular trails tonight and cranked out 11.23 miles in a little over an hour.

Well half a mile or so was me walking as my tire decided to quit holding air. Did not have my patches with (rookie mistake) but a young couple stopped to help. The guy had some slime scans and that held for the last mile or so to the car.

Tonight, getting a new tube and a butt load of scabs to carry in my Camelback.

Picture attached just to get your attention.

 I know the Sonata doesn't have a V8 in it but 12 mph is still kinda weak man....

We've had about a month straight of rain. Hasn't been more than 3 days in a row where we've seen the sun.

Very little snow though.

I am disappoint.

I might be able to go on Monday. If not, I happen to have Tuesday off and I'll spend the morning on my bike.

I've been working on my troll skills. It took everything I had just to be patient enough to wait all of 57 minutes for someone to see it.

Just out of the shot, we have an example of the rather rare flying American housecat.

They stalk their prey with patience and determination not usually seen in normal, everyday housecats.

You may notice, they do well with take-off and flying, however smooth landings occasionally incorporate the use of small human children.

I just sent a work email at 1:44am to answer a question that was asked on Friday of which I have been thinking about since then.

I even spent an hour researching tax regulations and websites for support of my answer.

I am such a nerd.

#myfirstwheels

1976 Olds Delta 88 Royale, 4 door
White with blue vinyl roof
350 V8
4 bbl carb
3 spd auto
Plush velour interior

It was my grandfather's company car that he bought and let my grandmother drive. I got it in 1992 with only 75k on the odometer.
Within a year I blew the engine in it.

That was the first car I ever worked on myself.

My worst was I hit a jump at a weird angle and the bike did not come down straight on the wheels.  I hit hard on my left side and my elbow went into my ribs and cracked them.  It was hard to breathe and lie down for a couple of weeks.

I also sprained my ankle about a year later going down a canal and hit a fallen tree.  I still have bruising on my leg over a year later.

As a teenager I had a bad accident where I broken my clavicle and dislocated my shoulder.  The shoulder has never been the same since.
