It's 5 miles if I take the back way, 5 if I take the normal way. Two lights the back way, 6 the normal way. So, i guess, as you can figure, the back way is now the normal way.

Bad Injury, Future Prevention

I'm on crutches and in a splint for quite a while. While throwing my right leg over my top tube, my left leg totally buckled and dislocated at the knee. I'll spare y'all the fun story of my ER visit...
