    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    Morning monkeys!

    Yesterday, the boss sent myself and another out to get beer for a gathering today. That's right, I went beer shopping on the company dime. Had to get "cheap" beer, because we were told to get "nothing exotic". Since the beer is for people with no taste in beer, we got Sam Adams and :shudder: Miller Lite.

    Today I have a quarry shot, then at 2, a going away party for one of our techs.

    Be safe out there.

    Good morning! Hope to ride today. This weekend is going to be major maintenance time for the Heckler - middle ring, chain, cassette, brake work. The old girl has been getting worked pretty hard this year.

    Morning.

    My wife took our little guy in for his 6 week checkup yesterday (even though he's 7 weeks old). He already weighs 13lbs 1oz and is 23in long... he's growing so freakin quickly. He also got some vaccination shots while he was there so he wasn't a very happy camper last night.

    Good morning! I churned out 15 miles on the bike last night, turning out another immaculate Fells loop in the process. After all of the bike maintenance Tuesday night, holy crap. It was like riding a new bike it was so flawless. I gotta do that more often.

    Still putting in adoption forms for dogs. The process is proving quite a bit more arduous than I thought...

    behind you, don't wait up.
    Good morning.
    Speaking of bike maintenance, my trail bike is overdue. I have a creak which drove me nuts the other night. I hate a noisy bike. Time for a cleaning and a once-over.
    I tuned up my DH bike the other night; maybe I'll actually get to ride it this weekend.

    "If you're not first, you're last"



    Selling my RFX frame tonight, putting my complete XC build from my broken frame on another XC frame for a friend of a friend to use/get into riding, and (hopefully) eventually buy the bike. Just need to sell the stupid DH bike and I'll be a happy man.

    Giving the Jeep another 2 weeks to sell, otherwise I'm just going to take the $1-2k loss in trading it in for a TJ. Eff it. Sucks because my brother had the same exact Jeep in not nearly as good condition that sold in less than a week...for $800 more than I'm asking (had 45k less miles, though). I hate being impatient.

    Morning Monkeys.

    Interesting vibe in the office today. Got some expected news yesterday that we have cut overseas ties (thank gawd) and are taking over control of the project. A lot of work to do, but control will make all the difference. Might actually build something worth a damn. :panic:

    GDI is work busy today. Now I know how Han Solo felt when the hyperdrive on the Millenium Falcon wasn't working. Somehow that must be relevant.
