    Slept like the dead last night. Impromptu oil change on the pressure washer after it was burning oil made the whole task take forever.

    Sunday morning has some xc racing on TV and...

    Rigid trail riding makes one sore, probably related to going OTB and have the bike land on my back.

    In my excitement to get carne at the carniceria I dropped my bluetooth earbuds at the trailhead parking lot. Five hours later I drove the 25 miles back to look and score, unscathed under one of the two cars in the lot.

    Smoked brisket sandwich to celebrate my absentmindedness.

    Moar coffez and off to the trails.

    Did not die last night.

    Someone in the site next to us might have, though. They had to carry him back from wherever they were. I took that as my queue to vacate back to our own site. :busted:

    I think it's time for a wakeup swim and then....stuff?

    could have used more sleep. My dogs beg to differ. It's good to be back home. Kind of tired. I walked 22 miles around the showgrounds in the past two days, barely any swelling in the ankle YAY Going to use the wind trainer as it is dumping rain outside

    30 minutes of easy spinning on the fluid trainer/ road bike. Full range of motion with no discomfort. Icing now. Win.

    Rear wheel just broke right off the lawn mower mid mow. The other appears to be suffering very similar fatigue. Guess I shouldn't be surprised, mower has got to be 20 years old, but FTS. :rant:

    The more i ride my Scott, the more I like my megatrail. To be fair though, the drivetrain needs replaced (keeps mis-shifitng) and the cranks creak. If those don't remedy things, it's on the chopping block.

    sell that xc chit right meow. one bike to rule them all - actually, sell both and get yoself a new megatrail or trail pistol. and yes, i ride my bromad on all our local trails...

    track meet finished early. laid put on the couch drinking some beers before the pork loin goes on the grill.

    will install chainsaw tensioner later...and either tinker with drivetrain on the bromad to see if i can get it behaving better or install the eagle setup sitting on the workbench...

    Didn't ride today. Did a little yard work, planted a chestnut tree next to a driveway, now having the first G&T of the warm season.
    More rain tomorrow.

    American chestnut? We have at least four of them going, and they're producing viable seed.
