No, I don't know.

Inability to empathize is one of the hallmarks of sociopathy.

Mrs datlas and I are back from a 4 mile walk.

I did not Strava it, so you will have to trust me. I believe our average speed was right around 3MPH.

The second pic is the house we rented for the past 8 days.

I'm guessing for a majority of naked participants, "cycling advocacy" is a dubious claim.

I checked area meteorological calendar and there is no smoke season therein.

Airbnb?

Yup. We have the whole house. It’s pretty modest by LA standards, 2BR 1BA. I would estimate it to be around 1700SF. For most of the trip we also had older daughter and her 2 roommates with us, but they went back to Pennsylvania 2 days ago due to WCU Marching Band commitments.

Football is back. Well, kinda. The Bears must be wishing they could have made Trubisky look this good in their own jersey.

We watched the first Cards game and it was pretty dull.

OMG, Lacrosse is on NBC now.

Reminds me of my ride yesterday.

I twisted my ankle trail running. Gonna be on the IR for a couple three days.

I thought you were training to arm wrestle?

KOM alert for northeastern East Coasters.

Arm wrestling training takes a holistic approach.

That's why we gave up on trail running. It sounds fun at first...

Nope, but both were epic cycling activities.

Bah Humbug 08-21-21 02:46 PM

The family homestead is basically the center of where that thing will hit. Fortunately my aunt has a generator and huge propane tank.

datlas 08-21-21 02:49 PM

We are at LAX with takeoff t minus 1 hour. Heading towards the storm. My hope is it’s far away enough to not impact our arrival, although tomorrow’s ride looks to be a washout.

I think you’ll be ok. Not supposed to hit here until tomorrow morning. Should definitely be a washout.

When I ran XC in college, we trained on the road and the home course was so dangerous we were only allowed to run it carefully the morning before meets to see the new washouts.

In high school we had the most treacherous (and hilly) course in the state by far. Practice was a sequence of almost-rolled ankles and rapid steps to avoid them as the ground shifted under you. As teenagers we did fine, but no chance I'd do it now.
