How is everybody today?

All I did last night was clean the f'ing house and do the f'ing laundry.

What's everybody got on tap for today?

Morning stosh, hope things turn out to be better today then they did yesterday. I was sitting in really cold conference room for a meeting, and started shivering uncontrollably. So i waited til the meeting was over thinking it was just the room, well 2 hours later i was still shivering (borderline ER stuff) Drank a ton of juice and put on 2 coats, and finished out my day. Went home found out I have a 102 degree fever :dead:...Woke up again last night shivering, and now im at work :think: sipping on some 7 up.

Morning. Had a quiet night last night. Played with my daughter for a while and then we all watched the movie Robots. It was pretty good. Put the kid to bed around 8:30 and flipped back and forth between the baseball game and MNF. Nice and relaxing! Nothing on tap today except work and then home. I also rented Lords of Dogtown and The Longest Yard (w/ Adam Sandler), just have to decide which one to watch tonight. Planning on riding on Friday and then off to Diablo for the weekend on Sat. morning. Can't wait!

Do you think it's funny that William Shatner played Captain Kirk?

Oh cool, I didn't get a chance to play with the computer last night becuase Aubrey has been needing it for doing her class work.

G'mornin'......

Not much goin' on today. Typical Tuesday, I guess. Just going through the motions and getting the product out the door. Worked on a new logride at the trails yesterday after work. Ordered the front brake for my Preston build also. Grilled a hell of a tuna steak after all that and enjoyed a little Monday Night Football until Indy turned it into a rout. Hell of a finish to that St. Louis/Houston game though.....very exciting. Probably going to get some cleaning done around the house this evening---gonna give the trails a break for a day or so. I need to get some more building materials like nails, a new saw chain and some pressure treated decking to span some low areas on the local loop.

Went for a ride last night... about 6 miles into the trail I got a bad case of chain suck on the rear wheel. The chain was jammed between the rear cassette and the hub. Took me 15-20 minutes to get it out. No biggie, but a huge ass cloud of blood sucking mosquitoes swarmed me. When I got home I had well over a 100+ bites on my back, arms and legs.

I hope I don't get West Nile now....

:(

Not sure... My best guess is that we pull out of here around 6am, which should put us down there around 9:30ish.

My friend asked me to help him chop wood Saturday but maybe I could ditch working with him.
Is there a big race this weekend?

Let me know by Friday night if you wanna ride with us, and I can give you my cell #. There is a race on Sunday, but most of us (there are at least 5 coming down) are going just to freeride. Our team's Pro rider (Jimmy Stoddard) is in 2nd place in the overall points going into this weekend (which is the last race of the Domination Series), so he's racing for the $1000 cash payout. The rest of us will be drinking beers and having a good time. I'm pretty sure we've got a condo right there for Sat. night as well. :thumb:

Wow, thats awesome! Maybe worst case I could come down and have a few beers or something.

I would really like to go and I only gave my friend a tenative yes that I would give him a hand so maybe I could squeek my way out of it.


PS. I'm super slow at riding DH so I'm not sure if you'll want to ride with me. I would only be riding my MKIII which can't take that much of a beating.

Note my "PS." above.
No sweat. We're going tobe taking it relatively easy anyway. One of the guys is just recovering from surgery, he's going to be taking it easy. His wife will be riding with us, and she's a relative beginner. Another guys snapped his fork on his DH bike so he'll be in something like a MKIII as well. No worries....

....day two of rain in the desert. I think they planned it so we'd HAVE to stay in the casinos and drop some coin.

I'm the one doing the screwing though - I'm up $4.50 for the 3 days! TAKE THAT VEGAS!
Bwahhhhhh you go girl!!!

It must be weird to see rain there. Are people freaking out? Are all kinds of cool flowers blooming?
