Looks like it was a nice day on I-80 today.

Do tell.

Iíve ridden some of the former right-of-way in MT and ID, including some of what is now the Hiawatha Trail and the Olympian Trail. The former is a must-ride.

OMG. I would probably just move.

That kind of thinking got us here in the first place! We still like the house, but it really is a mess.

I do want to hit the Hiwawatha. Hadn't thought much about the Olympian, but I should hit that too, having never ridden a bicycle in MT.

I hit the Palouse to Cascades (and a couple of other trails) from Seattle to Ellensburg a few years ago, looking forward to doing the rest now that bridges are being fixed up. I read about some guys who did it the hard way, and thought about doing that. including planning on crossing the Columbia at Vantage on I-90 at the least-trafficked moment (like 4am on a tuesday?)

I think I'll ride on 3.0" tires, figuring the soft sandy parts around the Yakima Training Range are still as soft and sandy as they were a couple of years ago, and not wanting to ride road much.

Ha! I believe the gray area is the part of the US where the window meets Energy Star standards.

Enlarge it for those viewing abroad.

Completely friken normal ride tonight. I don't get it. What was different tonight? I have no idea. I was waiting for things to go askew the whole ride, nothing.
Good ride too, I did an extra .5 hour on my own afterwards. 30ish miles and 1800ft of climbing. Set Mt 2 best times on the whole Lotta lava Kom. My legs are smoked.

You should visit there and find out. Take the Horne ferry.

Turns out buying gas, milk, other, by the litre is expensive.

A lot of mention of going insane, kids to put thru college, how are you going to pay for all that, and retirement savings laced with words that my wife doesnít ordinarily use. Of course that was before COVID and the bankruptcy of my largest, most profitable client.

No. There’s usually another cabinet there, back to back with the other one with a skin over the end.

She drily replied, "Two people can both be crazy."


Busted

The ground has finally frozen.

18 km futzing with traffic.

The problem with collections of any kind is that surviving spouses or heirs donít share the same passion as the collector and everything gets liquidated, often below value.
