I'm no tri-guy but it's 100+ degrees here and a 30+ mile ride might be 3 water bottles, not 2.

Convince me I don't need the water or give me a rec on what under the back seat water bottle holder is a good deal.

Back pocket.

You are correct; only thing that remotely makes sense is mace and that's for country dogs that are already eating you.

If you told him no search because he didnít have probable cause to search your car, he would not have pushed it. Driving back from Colorado is not probable cause. Should have said, let me call my lawyer and ask him. That would have likely ended it.

I need to just carry around a couple of business cards for some local defense lawyer for times like these; 'this guy likes to answer questions, call him'.

I had a really fun ride today. I was reluctant to go to the club and almost went somewhere alone but a couple friends talked me into it. There were about 25 riders including 6 women. Nice day and it reminded me of the old days.

Oh, and todays ride I felt 100 percent again. Ended up running into the scalpers and basically just pulled the whole time. Went down 143 all the way to Yorktown and was holding 24-26 mph the whole time. Felt pretty awesome. I did burn up all my fuel. I dropped the scalpers off at Yorktown and had to ride back to Willyburg and I was done. My legs have never felt so spent. I wanted to make the call of shame so badÖÖ..

Tour d’Italia in Italy (pronounced “Itly”), TX.

It did not run thru Frisco.

The seas are dangerous. When you head out, you have to be prepared to be fully self-sustaining, and prepared for any risk.

The reasons for turning around would be either damage to the boat, or one of the crew was injured, became seriously Iíll, or, God forbid, died. It could also be an onshore family emergency, but that would not be as likely.

Probably left the oven on at the house. I do it all the time.

I donít either, but that one stood out.

Or left the garage door open. Thatís where my OCD falls.

A lot has changed. Plano is now home to a lot of big companies. Itís rather cosmopolitan now.

Dude! Everyday I have to turn around and go check my house to make sure I shut the garage door. Itís really bad. The best is when I turn around and then forget to look so I have to turn around a second time.

There is no hope for me.

Iíve solved that problem - I now sit in the driveway until I see the door hit the ground. Then I wait a few minutes to make sure it doesnít reverse itself.

Three boats.

The cat was not in their class, so that is probably withdrawing for a different reason. Restive and Jettie could have collided with damage to both boats. Or, they could all be returning for different reasons.

It’s not unusual for boats to withdraw in ocean races. They get damaged, have equipment failures, and people get hurt.

Mo will have to tell us.

The suspense is killing me. Canít Mo shoot out a text or something.

Ive tried this. I get to the end of my neighborhood and I convince myself I forgot to close it. I even tried in enlist the help of my daughter. When I ask her if I shut the garage door she never answers Yes with confidence.
