Also occurred to me that I met the guy once. Don’t look for that Wikipedia link.

I remember when you posted that. Crazy ****.

Oh and a bird watcher set up camp in the middle of the path and was trying to take pictures. Not sure why he had to stop in the middle of the path and not the side.

He was trying to get a better shot angle, gotta do what you gotta do. Could have been a rare bird.

He was still asking for his expensive lens to get bounced of the concrete when someone plows into him. Depending on the bird, it may be worth it.

More bear news: we got a text from our host that there was a bear in front of the house last night, and to be careful.

Some nice bear signage posted today:

I haven't watched the Grizzlies a lot but Ja Morant is amazing.

The athleticism and fearlessness is fun to watch, but he's not going to have a long career hurtling his (relatively) slight frame through the air and at the mercy of much larger defenders.

Does he ever get tired? You're right, though. Smaller players tend to get hammered when they run amok.

I read the article. My DC friend knows some of the women quoted in the story. It’s an interesting article.

I’ve ridden through Superior, MT, twice. There’s stuff there.

In 2014 a train derailed and dumped some Boeing fuselages into the Clark Fork River.

He's a pup and a pro - getting tired shouldn't be a problem. Coming down hard and/or awkwardly, seemingly every other game, ain't good, though.

Should market in LA, PHX, ATL.

And if you're going to cheat, make the win marginal.

Hey MoAlpha - Bike24 has tubed GP5k in stock for ~$33 each, $15 shipping. Seems decent to me, but I'm used to paying bleeding edge tubeless prices.

Trsnrtr 05-04-22 06:55 AM

VeloNews, CyclingNews, CyclingWeekly, and probably others have gone to a paywall after 5 articles a month. Anybody here paying to read these sites, and if so, are the multitude of ads removed if you pay?

I do pay for GCN but the content on GCN is way more than these sites offer.

Anyway, just curious.

He was caught last night. They spotted him in a tree and darted him after he came down. He will be moved to appropriate surroundings.

Wonder if the animal cops ate the donuts.
