Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Different infractions have different ban lengths. The mods are actually usually quite patient. If you get a certain number of points or do other naughty things, you might be banned for a week. Or a month. Only really bad actors are perma-banned.

I saw the thread earlier and it seemed the post was deleted, while a lot of talk about the post remained.

Looks like thread has been deleted now.

It was an old post and linked site obviously changed a bit.

Have you been to the gallery lately? Last couple times I was in there, there was some soft porn at the very beginning. Possibly spam.

We can now safely say we've entered rainy season. Three thunderstorms in the space of five days. It is a sudden thing-- not quite as sudden as in Forest Gump, but sudden nonetheless. Hurricane season, of course, follows close behind.

I've been walking to and from the clinic the last few times. Seems like a little over two miles. It wears me out.

That’s what I was thinking. Just last week I was responding to a thread on ACA’s website. Guy asked about camping on the Marias Pass alternative on ACA’s Northern Tier route. The Sears Motel in E. Glacier came to mind because it used allow camping last I checked. Because I had not ridden through there since 2009 I looked up the place. Clicked on the website link. It took me to a hook up site for Montana, complete with lurid photos. Warned the OP to avoid the site. The motel must have given up the name and it got snapped up.

So I found the thread. The link must have been to a site that was hawking knockoff panniers last year.

So fun fact I just looked up the “hill” by my house. It’s 7.357 meters tall. I would have to climb it over 1208 times in order to “everest”.

That sometimes happened to "those" that posted inordinate amounts of memes because they couldn't "articulate" a "response" and they thought it was clever way "around" the problem.

Too bad some folks on the net don't take lightly to hot-linking and they sometimes substituted donkey porn, much to the annoyance of mods everywhere.

So 5 bottles, 3 water 2 Gatorade, one large DQ ice cream, chocolate. A bowl of life before the ride. No food during. Most of a small pizza after. I never think about food during a ride, unless its organized, and right there in front of me. I never feel hungry. I would have skipped the ice cream except its a tradition and it was hotter than heck.
