Oh - language. :o

I used to work with one of the people who started that event. Her name was Eleanor. I did it the first couple of years.

Shes adorable. I did 57 miles yesterday, which nearly doubled my longest ride of 2020. Im feeling it today, in part because we had a headwind a lot of the way.

So far today I've been like the murdering creature, but there's still several hours to go.

erie to philly was one of our longest flights on the dash 8. I imagine its even longer via cycle.

One week. Saw two bears, including one huge one from a distance of about 25'. Earlier he had raided the dumpsters at my campground and left a pile of scat near my tent, in the gear loft of which was a cheddar and jalapeno bagel. I had put it there when I went to shower so rodents wouldn't get it and totally forgot about it. Total brain fart. I got lucky.

Everyone quoting this makes ME want a nap. She looks completely zonked.

Bah Humbug 06-14-20 04:32 PM

Also, the 41 is the dumbs.

I include myself in that, of course, but there's an awful lot of angels dancing on an awful lot of pins here.

We missed our chance to get cheapo tix. A few days ago a RT nonstop from PHL to LAX was $100. Now it’s $400.

We did not buy because not 100% certain on dates.

That sucks, but shes right.

Not this time, but two absolutely fantastic days on the water, despite dragging our anchor through a populated anchorage this a.m. and having to roust long-suffering spouse out in her flannel pjs to drive the boat while we reset.
