    Sweet I'm going on two weeks vacation Friday. I really need it this time around. The renovation project has taken it toll on me with the constant stupid mistakes the workers makes that fuck up the time line.

    New bike arrived yesterday in good shape. Need to get a charger for the Di2 and some small adjustments and bigger tires. Its a CX/gravel bike with Di2 setup 1x with XT RD. Its my new school / old school road / mtb bike. Build for 2 hour fun rides where I can ride most of all trials around Copenhagen and still have fun on the road section too.

    My attitude is much improved since my calf muscle healed up enough to allow me to at least get back on the road bike and do easy spins around the valley.

    Time for coffee

    Weekly off road triathlon tonight. I did the race on fumes last week and suffered, coming off my Alaska marathon trip. Today I feel normal again. It'll be hot.

    Son was called to work the fire in Genoa yesterday, d-i-l was asking if anyone could help with grandkids today, and we had to turn it down as the celebrities and lookie-loos are in for the golfing in Tahoe for this week.

    What fun........

    FRIG. If those asshats over in Somalia would stop calling my work phone at 3 and 4am, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Bike is in car. I can go for a good ride on good trails tonight, on the derp'd wheel. Or, go to the bike shop and pick up the new wheel and then ride on MEH trails. Hmmmmm.

    I shall ponder this over coffee.

    Details son. Don't hold out on us.

    Oh hey guys!

    Another day another dol——oh wait. Summer school teachers don’t get sick! No dollars, just biking and fun with the kiddo. Wish I could get the hubby to call in sick for a week so we could all go play! Weekends just get too busy with other things.... usually also fun.

    It rained last night and is supposed to be in the upper 60s/low 70s, with three hours of soccer camp from 2-5. I’m going to find some tacky goodness.

    :think: turn it off?! Or set it to quiet mode so that only certain phone numbers can get through? That's what I do. It has saved me numerous times for those fuckin' mandarin spammers infecting Ontario these past few months.

    I discovered yesterday that there was a bit of tenderness in my thoracic vertebrae. A colleague who just did an advanced wilderness first aid class said that was cause for seeing a doctor. So I did, last night. Doc said everything seemed fine but to get x-rays done anyways. So I went this morning. No news is good news. I'll still wait till at least Friday before getting back on the mountain bike though. a bit of rain this week would be swell.

    Afternoon. Trying to clear out clutter....it's awful. I wish it was storming so at least I would have a better reason to be inside on this lovely day.

    We need more people to get to Monkeyfest this year! Some of our usuals aren't able to make it and that makes me sad.

    Hello monkeys! I stopped by the LBS this morning to see about warranty replacements for my Guide R brakes which were OEM on the base model Yeti SB6c. They are from 2015 - my LBS does not think there will be any issue other than time. Sometimes Sram be fast. Sometimes Sram be slow.

    yea, a chain that worn will generally require a new corresponding cassette ( i remember you posting the other day about how much chain growth there was)

    Chainring was replaced in December. I'm paying for my failure to use the chain gauge frequently.

    Also just replaced the M-647 pedals and my cleats - that whole mess was getting sloppy...
