behind you, don't wait up.
the lack of posting in this Fitness & Nutrition forum is telling!

I'm going for the Sober October. Posting up here as it goes. I just was pretty sick and hadn't drank for almost two full weeks. Going to dry out for the full 5 weeks starting TODAY and see how I feel. Don't expect much interest as we're mostly a bunch of beer and liquor swilling animals, but for anyone else getting on the wagon for a month. Post away .... good luck!

Day three, low tire (4runner) yesterday, valve cover froze on two wheels, broke one had to go replace the tpms on that wheel, killed the battery while changing the tire, had to replace that also.

I could have used a beer if I had any last night.

I too, remain sans alcohol. Been sleeping pretty good, with the exception of last night where I slept absolutely horribly. Which is weird, given how I punished myself riding up Georgia pass.

Well done, sir - how was the ride? A bit nipply?

FTR - I did NOT drink any booze yesterday... but there may have been some DL involved. :homer:

It was brisk when I got there around 9:30. Clearly nearing the end of the fall season up there. Can't be but a weekend or two of colors left. Crowded as a god damned mall at the trail head, but cleared out pretty quick. Saw maybe half a dozen other riders. West Jefferson was rowdier than I remembered it being. Hardtail probably wasn't the bike I should have been riding for that descent, but I survived. 8/10, would bang again.

Damn - I meant to tell you of the "secret" to avoiding the trailhead shitshow. Sorry.

And hardtail - nicely done. W. Jefferson is indeed rowdy... I haven't ridden it in a LONG time. I should probably remedy that...

You've both seen the invite for the 26th as long as the weather holds.
