    Water - I thought I was getting sick but I think I have just been dehydrated. Denmark has never been hotter og drier than it is currently. I found out drinking a cocktail after work did not help either - life is boring :-)

    More afternoon thundershowers on tap. This appears to be the wettest summer on record. Meh

    Crazy weather. We had the same last year. Super cold weather and tons of rain. This this year complete opposite.

    Got woken up at 4:20 AM by some massive thunderstorms that rolled thru. I wondered if it was a sign from @FSM to wake and bake? I passed at that notion due to being a boring adult that had to go to work in a few hours.

    Bikes in the woods tonight. Might be a little slick, but that's ok.

    'Morning. I ran 60 minutes on the high school track yesterday afternoon during the hottest part of the day, which is when I do most of my running. 95 heat index, 72 dew point, with full sun. :dead: That was rough. 7 weeks until my Ironman and I need to prepare for the good possibility of a hot race, so I have not been avoiding the hot weather. 4000 yard swim done in the indoor pool this morning, which was much more pleasant.

    Good morning.
    Garbage is out and a short pedal around town done. I should have got up earlier and hit the trails while it's cool.
    Work work work, shopping for rims, evening ride someplace. The beat goes on.

    Me too, although I purchased a $160 hand pump (lol) so that I can try to inflate tubeless tires at the trail head.

    Side thought; leaving on trip tomorrow night destined for trails that are rox and out in the bush. Is it stupid to mount new tires and sealant and expect to not have to pump them up all the time? Maybe I should just leave the tires as-is until after the trip...

    First day of school today, then work, and a follow up call from last week's call. Tomorrow afternoon can't come fast enough.

    There is now a Jefferson, Madison, and Lincoln in Hannah's class. Am I missing something? Is the new trend in naming kids going after presidents?

    Ill have to ask the wife about this. Though I suspect, this being Colorado Springs, that if a trend exists, it's more towards confederate generals and Politburo members.

    Couple different.

    Some just want a particular projectile not offered as factory for their cartridge
    Some is a full blown chronograph test to perfectly balance a cartridge/projectile/powder combination as well as custom sizing to fit the exact rifle
    Some are looking for reduced recoil
    A lot of what I make...... Is for bear defense

    You mean Halley's Comet? Pronounced Hal-ee. Versus Haley? Pronounced Hay-lee.

    Thank you, try again.

    Mornin!

    Was up for sunrise yesterday and hiked to both of the tea houses in Banff yesterday. Was fine, but we’ve been robbed of the big mountain views by all the forest fire smoke hanging around. Drove through an active fire on the way here and the smoke was so thick it felt like we were in Dante's Peak.

    On the plus side I got to see a real Canadian display of shit talking. Some barbs were exchanged before backs were slapped and sorreys were exchanged. :rofl:

    I used to work with a woman named Debora. She demanded it be pronounced dee-bore-uh.

    Calling here Debby would enrage her.

    Morning,
    Rode this morning with some guys from work. Took the new guy with us, he hadn't been on a bike in 16 years, and never on a MTB. Needless to say, he had a blast.

    Someone brought in Brisket for Breakfast... i love this place.

    There used to be a Clinton in the hangar. You can imagine what a group of blue collar guys called him instead.
