I'll hop fences and ride RR tracks, follow power lines, and ride through empty buildings. After the big storms we had, it keeps you fresh, branches down, ruts, and fresh rocks. I got to the end of the day, and I just wanted to keep riding, a bit further. I'd look over at the sun and see how far above the horizon it was, and calculate how hard, and fast I'd have to ride to catch the last light.
Nothing is better than when someone is right and you've been a disagreeing with them and you finally figure out that they are really right.
Self editing is tough, I want it to be good, it sounds and looks good, but you know its just sorta "joe".
Not so good.
I'm in an excellent mood. Got my nose back down to the grind stone and applied it hard. No lip. Just some back to the basic hard work. Life does not have to be heroic to be big and full. Really, average and real is enough.
just a coulpe of snaps, I always try to get to work early, a chance to look around at the world.
I'm enjoying my cold riding mixed drink, ya know the shot in the gatorade to keep it unfrozen, and also it gives a bit of zing to the rehydration. I go for slivovitz (plum brandy) and lemon-lime, so good... that killin' the bottle at the end of the ride gave me a bit of an ice cream headache.
If you notcied on the side bar there is a new link "stomach and tongue" it's just a blog roll/link list I've created for myself. It contains food blogs/reviews, a list of good restuarants and some other Philadelphia tasty resources. Ones that have good beer, good prices, high quality food and a good selection of vegitarian items. cheers.
Cold Feet.1491 by Charles C. Mann. Its about life in the America's before Columbus "discovering" America. One thing I've felt attached to is the importance of character: the Wampanog's expected men and women to be brave, hardy, honest, and uncomplaining. A family game was of tossing naked children into the snow. so I put my coffee down and took a stroll in our fresh snow, not to bad. give it a try.
got a great 3 hr ride in with friends I've been meaning to catch-up with on riding. Tony and Kevin took me to the D n' R trails in Jersey. We did a nice 3 hr ride of twisty, twisty trails.
that's Tony looking happy to see the parking lot and be done.
Tonight, out to see the Strapping Fieldhands, some beers, hand shakes and more catching up with past peeps. Cheers, dlowe.
