    They do have it down, though. But smart shocks are no excuse for a failed suspension design.

    Well, not. We have been traveling and riding together for six years, and while I was infatuated for a year or so, we stay out of that. I wouldn't trade her friendship for a roll in the hay.

    We did Monument Valley last year on the way from Phoenix to Moab, but didn't stop in Bear's ears.

    I've never actually been to Bear's Ears, so I won't vouch for that, but I have spent a lot of time around and in Grand Staircase. It's amazing country, incredibly beautiful. Of all the bullshitery brought to you by President* Harkonnen, IMO this fuckery is possibly the most egregious.

    Lunch break ride was cut short by rain, still some fun was had. Now headed to the office and XMas party. I am hoping for someone laying an upper decker Tonite. :D

    Tinfoil day.
    Wondering what back alley shenanigans are transpiring as the American public is distracted with tax reform issues. Is this issue really the real issue, or are we clueless about some clandestine real issue?

    Probably. I know Trump got the travel ban passed in the middle of all the Tax thing. I think it went into effect today?

    Had grocery store sushi for lunch. (Yeah, I know).
    Musta been a FNG making it, the tuna and salmon were 1/2" thick, whereas they usually are as thin as they can possibly cut it.
    Marginally satisfied.
    Now to get on the rollers...

    Try the Pines Motel in Driggs, or possibly Motel 6 in Jackson. Oh, possibly the Hostel in Teton Village!

    There is almost no BLM land up here, and the forest camping will close up with the snow.

    Do they block you from running exe files?

    If not, download the .zip package instead by clicking the little arrow next to the "Download VLC" button. It'll run without needing to be installed.

    You could hike in and camp, but typically there will be 4 feet of snow on the ground.
    Not yet, though.

    Just got out of meeting with new dept head - lots of changes. New comp setup which is much better, more company monetary support for advanced degrees, more upward positions available, etc. Good stuff, very good stuff.

    I went to Public school then Private High School. PS in North Carolina completely fucked me for spelling in English. It was easier for me to spell in German than my own language. Thanks Public School.

    But with web browsers having some variation of Spell Check, there really is no excuse. If eye kahn dew it, sew kin yew.

    the grocery store sushi at harris teeter is tolerable. i haven’t died or puked yet.

    chaperoned the 7yo’s field trip today...no hanging with him at rugby practice. he’s the youngest one out there but he’s fast, rough, and dgaf. if he sticks with it he could be decent, i think.

    tweaked the derailleur hanger on the uzzi mid-ride on sunday. the helicoiled thread didn’t want to take the derailleur back after i removed it to straighten the hangar (which is a solid piece with the g3 dropout). intense doesn’t have em anymoar. forced to order a new one from australia...oh well.

    went to pick up fenders for my commuter this morning. then proceeded to install them because it is pissing rain. Because they are clip-on, I thought it would be simple. Nothing is ever simple with fucking fenders. Still, got them in in 45 minutes. got the kids to school, came back, ate, showered and got to work only 20 minutes late.

    ^^^ I just found the draft of that post!

    It's now evening. I had to work on my nipples tonight, they are corroding and breaking (not in a mandown kind of way). Because I had to take my tire off, my arm hair around my wrist is now covered in stans. I hate that shit.
