We have never been to Hawaii. Third option is Puerto Rico. Maybe we should just go visit seeds??

Calcification makes sense and is not uncommon. Think phleboliths which are commonly found in veins. Ossification (bone formation) would be uncommon.

Skip PR. Instead, opt for St. John, Grand Cayman, Turks & Caicos, or BVI. Or, one of our favorite trips that is affordable and easy to get to - Matachica resort in Belize.

I was on a flight to hell many years ago in that I was seated next to that one person out of 300 that you never want to be next to on a plane. They guy just went on and on and on about the sad state of the country, frustration with being unable to do anything about it, and wanting to know (at least 100 times) how I could live with the country the way it was.

I just told him that I don't pay attention to much on a national or state level unless it directly affected me, that my primary concern was my business and my family, and that as long as I could take care of them I would be happy and content. In other words, I only cared about what I could control or that would directly impact me.

Maybe. But PR has mountains for cycling and Español for us to practice. And airfare there is reasonable. No firm plans yet. I would still prefer Andalucía Spain but that’s farther away.

Mallorca. Paradise.

You can practice your Spanish, German, and English.

You'd like St. John better for riding. Mountains, very low traffic, and probably the prettiest place in the US.

PR is a place you go to stay on a resort property. It's pretty congested, and I'm not sure I'd be out and about by myself due to the drug and gang issues.

There is a word I had never seen before and suddenly I see it twice within less than an hour. The second time was here. The first was my brother saying he's in the ER with a possible phlebolith, or epididymitis.

Phleboliths are typically an incidental finding on imaging and usually asymptomatic.

It’s in the works for next year. I am plotting to do the 312. Luckily, one of my local cycling friends has a house on Mallorca and plans to do the ride too.

Vein stones. There are brain stones too.

Yup. Although his house is apparently on the opposite side of the island from the 312 start, so we may have to leave at 3AM. Clearly, first world problems.

This would explain some people I've encountered.

There are tonsiliths too. I get them sometimes. They STINK because anaerobes.

Can confirm. The first time I had one of those was before the internet, so I had not the slightest clue what it was.

Climbed up to the Blue Ridge Parkway today. What a wonderful place to ride!

Highest I've ever been on a bicycle, Strava says I hit about 5600' MSL. Overall 61 miles and 5200', with 3300' of that in the first 20 miles.

Fun day :D

My buddy that I rode with last Saturday leaves tomorrow for a week in Mallorca with a friend of his who has a family vacation house there. Unfortunately, his friends are not all my friends. Maybe I need better friends. I don't have any with vacation homes in exotic beachside locations.

I don't either. I wish you'd buy one so I could say I did.

I have to pay for college for my kid first. Try again in (hopefully only) 4 years.

No problem. You got time since I'll be around for a while.

Keep in mind I like warm water on my beaches.

The doors are open. I even have a few bikes you could ride. Is 60cm too small for you?

Edit: Forget it. We live in pancakeland.
