    Hi lmfao! I don't want to go jinxing things now, but it would appear this may be the first weekend in two months that I will not have to work. :panic: I don't trust it....

    Last nights group ride was interesting. First, it was crazy humid and hot. I felt like I was going to puke at the top of one particular climb. One guy was running late, so we said no problem and waited for him. Then he missed the exit on the freeway on the way to the trail. When he finally got there, he discovered that he forgot his helmet; doh. Then five minutes into our already late start, for some unknown reason, the last guy (only three of us riding) takes a left at the first trail and gets lost. Ended up finding him 15 minutes later deep in the forest. We ALWAYS take the same route into this forest and even when asked, he didn't know why he went left; with a blank empty stare he just said "I don't know....". We lol'd and then continued on into the heat.

    Great conditions out there though, if a little dry. I burped/brapped my rear tire five times, I think I should try more air pressure?

    Morning Monkeys.

    Got the gear loaded up after getting the oil changed. It seems my dipstick has gone missing, that is a little concerning. The wife is taking the dogs at 1 in hopes for a sweet camp spot. The dogs and I are excited, the wife is dreading Friday as I will be in office since reliable internets seem iffy.

    Can I go home now?

    And apparently it isn't as easy as just going to Napa and getting a new one. I need to get the serial number off the motor so I get the right one. I know the location of said number, but reading it will likely be an adventure in and of itself.

    Frita has an alarm and will shut down in low oil pressure conditions. But it would be cool to check levels.

    Stoked for a week and half of paid time off, may even get to ride a bicycle. Taking the kids to the climbing gym for sure.

    Why would you take a Pisgah bike when clearly a beach cruiser is required ? And don't use the excuse that you don't have one. You can rent them. Hell you might even be able to get an e-bike for your leisure time there. Just strolling around on your e-FatBike and working on a fine leatherette tan. What could be better ?
