    This week has the potential to be the longest, ever. I swear to the FSM it should be over already.

    Imma ride my bike to work. 70 damn degrees at the end of November? Climate change, you crazy!

    At work making a mess of things. Whoever worked here before me sure loved zip ties. I've been cutting zip ties off of zip ties.

    But new UPS is up an running, so my life should be a little easier when the power decides to go out again. :)



    Now for the nail biting part. Turning the Nortel phone system back on. Doing a little prayer and have fingers crossed. :rofl::twitch:

    Going riding as soon as I finish up here. woot.

    oy my shoulders and back are letting me know that they do not like me limbing trees then sawing the branches into small pieces with a hand held pruning saw. At least I will not be doing that today. winds have really kicked up, leaves are blowing down the street and the rain should hit shortly. Methinks the wife has a whole lot of indoor projects for me to get really pissed off doing.

    Non-elective holiday weekend call over as of 5 pm yesterday. Elective 5-10 punishment coming up tonight, because that money’s already spent.

    Damn there are more cars parked at this trail head, than I've ever seen before.

    Lots of bike racks. These city slickers better be going to correct way on these trails...

    These Stans Arch rims that came on the Scout are no bueno. Rear rim now has a serious flat spot and you can clearly see the stress marks in the aluminum. Damnit. Maybe if I didn't case every thing they'd be okay. :homer:

    Otherwise, good short, slow and easy ride on some rooty trails today. Challenging conditions, though; some sections of trail was frozen with velcro sounding dirt, but other sections were still wet.

    A little soreness in my neck. Generally, pretty decent.
    The other cars got pulled away on a flat-bed truck. I'm guessing it was the BMW that hit me, based on the color of the marks on my vehicle. Saw a guy getting a field sobriety test, then later walking with cuffs on. He looked okay, if he was the BMW driver, since I could see the air bags were deployed when that car rolled by on the truck. Not sure about any others. There was another car on the flat bed, but I didn't see anyone else on the roadside. After impact, I was able to safely navigate to the shoulder. Everything else was wadded up far behind me at the center divider.

    The CHP was pretty good about handling my situation. They were fast, and courteous. No complaints from me.

    @canadmos I had a hardtail with Arch Ex. It would be noodly by the end of every ride. They were not up to the task

    Just pulled the trigger on a new phone, the lg v30+. Gonna be baddass, but it is coming from S. Korea, so it is gonna be a long and painful wait if they don't send it by air.
    Pretty excited, though.

    eBay, but a seller with something like 30,000 transactions. It is the 128g version for $850. Have you checked out this phone? FLAC files for days!

    The micro sd card is supposed to handle up to 2tb cards, which are probably a few years off anyway...

    Slippery as fcuk - even with a thin case - which eventually led to its demise. Camera is worse than Nexus 5X. Larger bezels therefore smaller display than similarly sized 5X. Curved glass == no glass screen protector works without ugly edges.

    A couple of years since I'd ridden Shorthorn, definitely need to ride it more often.

    Were you skiing?

    No. I think it's almost as warm in the high country.

    Tomorrow's forecast is mostly sunny, 73*, with a strong chance of FTS. I believe I shall take a loooooooong lunch ride up at Deer Crik.

    Filed another glorious golden leaf party with @SuboptimusPrime after our rugrats infiltrated the fancy new playground. Finished the evening off with a finger of brown nectar and what appears to be a flaming metal demon wailing on a guitar...for the glory of Santa of course

    Looks like they say MK3 on the side.
