It's almost noon and there are only 9 posts here? Slow morning...
Great ride last night. We had a girl show up who was out for her second time, EVER, on a mountain bike. She freaking ROCKED it, on a bike that was way too big for her!!!! I couldn't believe how well she did!!! She loved it, too, and couldn't wait for the next ride, even after endo'ing a couple times. I love riding with n00bs like her. They are so full of fresh enthusiasm and make me remember why I love mtb'ing so much.
Good morning. Scrambling today to get things ticked off my list. T-minus 19 hours until I leave for the desert race in Reno, and I have things that need DONE. So... why again am I posting on the 'monkey? Because I'm not half smart, apparently.
Hoping for a bike ride this evening with my girl, just to lower the stress level a bit before leaving.
productive morning. after the coffee kicked in that is. Got all of our new ambulances inspected and permitted in Alameda and Contra Costa counties before 10am. Already have them staffed up and running calls too.
Rain, rain and more rain. I try not to ride muddy trails so no riding today. Last week it was in the high 90's. Saturday I did a 2:40 min ride in the high 90's, then Sunday it was 101°, had the trails to myself. Had to stop a lot to wipe the sweat off my glasses.
I dunno. When we were still receiving new airplanes from Bombardier the receiving inspectors were doing 2 weeks on in company lodging up in Canadiastan, then 2 weeks off and flying home. It would seem more problematic to do that from Japan. We don't take delivery till the earliest 2017, so who knows. Ideally for me would be like what they had proposed for Air Mekong, basically foreign resident for a couple years on company dime.
