I'm wondering if I should have grabbed my camping stove from my storage unit today. Looks like the forecast is for 1/2" (12mm) at least of ice overnight and through tomorrow.

And speaking of Friday night, I was too tired to watch the Expanse last night, so time to brew up some decaf and get a slice of that cheesecake and go into outer space.

I drove ahead of the group today and waited for them near the top of a 4 mile climb which had some steep sections. It's interesting to see who comes up first but also who comes up last. The 2 riders at the back are both mega-mile type riders, 1 coming back from serious injuries and the other suffering from burn out and lack of saddle time.

There are some riders who won't come to a fast club ride unless they are in top shape. One of these 2 was clearly feeling a little embarrassed at being stuck in the back with me. I had to keep telling him I understood. One of the younger guys was taunting him,too,which pissed him off a little.

Oof. More west coast train woes.

Saddest rail news of the west is the demise of Montana Rail Link.

RIP.

I had a Revell kit model of the Challenger 1 when I was about 12. The thing had 4 Pontiac V8 engines.

Not sure if this link will work, but here's the GOES-West Visual/NightIR loop

No. slept through it. The birdsong at 5.30am, not so much.

no. they were much, much harder than mere roadies.

It's partially my fault because I don't do anything half assed. Most people would cut corners and call it close enough. I wish I could because my life would be much easier.

The work ethic I've seen since I began my career in 1985 sucks. People want to put in the minimum and expect the maximum compensation. The ones that bring the least value seem to be the ones who expect the most.

On top of it all I'm busting my ass everyday feeling lousy for the past year and I have to observe the slackers. Getting acclimated to retirement for me will be no problem. I just hope I'm physically able to do the things I want to.

It’s 7F out. Time for more fake miles in the dungeon.

Forecast high of 74A. The cold front has arrived. We hit the road, in an hour and a half, heading for cold country.
