My commute

Thanks to Dominik's example, I got out of my coffin and rode to and from work. And I remembered how awesome my route is...

Boulder Mountain Lodge

This is where we stayed. In a town of 180 I couldn't find a greasy spoon. And we were in rural Utah.

Day 2.

KB and I cruised over to Calf Creek Falls. We thought we were getting a late start but past over a dozen people on our way out. My watch said it was 100 degrees. Most of the people looked as if they were gonna die and weren't carrying any water.

The hike is an easy six miles round trip, but goes through sand for most of it. We thought it was hot when we hiked in at 9:30 with plenty of water. I would hate to know what it was like at noon without a drop of liquid.

Honey moon

KB and I are enjoying the cool weather in Boulder, Utah. We just ate dinner at a restaurant where we were the only ones there. The waiter was a foreign exchange student and was a bit awkward, but the food was ok.

Thanks to everyone for the help, the love and the fun.

Swine Flu

Obama has warned that the Swine Flu may return in the fall.

Well hurray. I was highly dissappointed the first time around. Maybe this second epidemic can rid this world of all of us malignant cancer cells, also known as humans. Or at least wipe out a good 60-75% of us. You know, back to a healthy carrying capacity...

More verbiage later...

Well later has arrived.

I got in three descent rides this week. First up, we hit Sidney Peak to Bunker Creak on Monday with my dad. He was going too fast for me to get a pic, but I snagged one of KB who was slowed down by her hurt wrist. The trail is in good condition, or is in normal condition seeing that the majority of the trail is fall line and is always completely eroded.

This was the first ride after changing the singlespeed set up a bit and things went semi-poorly. I didn't exactly follow directions on the new bio-centric thingy from Niner so, it didn't work too well. In a breaking news update, I followed the directions this morning and it looks to be holding perfectly. The tubeless set up worked as well as I had expected. They stayed aired up for at least the entire ride...

I have to throw this out there. Right now, I don't care how shitty the trail conditions are, if its under 90 degrees I'm stoked to be riding.

Second ride was a morning jaunt up the Tukupetsi. We needed to get the dogs out. They loved it. My only comment: not sure how the chain didn't come off.

Third ride, KB and I got out Wednesday morning for a road ride. I took the singlespeed Tri-cross up Snow Canyon. I've gone up the highway to the top but never the opposite direction. I must say that the ride was nice. Definitely easier than the other way, but still a bitch squared to get up without a granny. KB thought she was going to drop me on the descent, but I held my own and left her behind even with only one gear.

That's my ride report.

Peace. Love. and Revolution.

What is the number 1 thing you can do in life?

To answer that question, I have no answer. I don't think any one does. You can claim high and mighty status but it's hard to live outside of the box. In the immortal words of Operation Ivy, " Success is obedience to a structured way of life. You can't ignore that structure cuz you're always within its sight." But only to top that off try on NOFX, "I call success not having to work."

Reading the immortalized words of Propagandhi, words that I fear few of my fellow brethren have read, I got that feeling, the one that motivates, the one that makes you want to be a radical and uproot everything to make a difference.

To make a difference?

A lot of people think there is no difference to be made. Hogwash. If you affect one life, you have made a difference. There is a philosophy that says that a butterfly's wing flap on one side of the world can completely alter the destiny of life. Help one person to see that there is a reason to try and make a difference, and you have made a difference.

I'm done rambling now.

Be a rebel.

KB and I got away to the mountain for a few hours today. It was nice and most relaxing.
