I've got two: TN and NC

0.

I've been ON the biggest hills in WA, OR, AZ, CA but never to the tippy top.

It tends to get a little dangerous. Check out the stats for climbing Washington's highest peak:

Just got back from a feeble attempt to ride, got blown all over the road by crosswinds, hit a headwind at mile 3 and had to push 325W to maintain speed of 17 mph on a slight down grade. Decided to say screw it and head home, Id rather go when its 35 degrees tomorrow morning. Wasnt really feeling another 12 miles of that nonsense before turning around and sailing home.

Did I show off my knife block here? Oh well, can't hurt to again.

Are there pretty noticeable magnetic "slots" or is the whole slab fairly uniform?

I've got one long line of magnets end-to-end, nine of them, each about 2" long. The knives will stick anywhere but, as previously mentioned, it's certainly weaker when straddling magnets. I'm already thinking about another one, maybe with two parallel lines of the same magnets, separated by an inch or so and with the magnet gaps offset.

Had a bad link above:

I'm within a daytrip distance of six (not sure they all have roads, though)

I'm not in the mood for math, but...


In September of 2008, Willie Benegas set the record climbing from Paradise to the summit and back in 4:40:59.

Iowa might be closer, though somewhat less scenic. LOL

Hard pass.

Hey Bah Humbug - I picked up some of this. I like it quite a bit - very good coffee flavor, but it is, by nature, more with-cream-and-sugar as opposed to as-black-as-my-soul, so I'm not sure how you'd take to it.

There are slots. They're spaced so that a petty or paring will take one, and a gyuto will take two.

Funnily enough, AG made a dairy-free sorbetto of theirs appear in the freezer over the weekend. I will investigate.

For the homeowners and handyfolks, what's everyone's experience with wall-mounted shelving?

Bah Humbug 05-12-20 06:18 PM

Oh and also, all five of those knives have different steels.

MA and DE, that I can remember. I rode, walked, ran, and drove up and over the highest point in DE.

It has it's place.

Spent an hour and a half trying to install a rear toddler seat on my wifes bike. It was a no go. Shes only 5 ft even and has to have the seat all the way down which caused the rear seat to be slanted at an angle and the base of it would rub the tire. We were given a burley bike trailer for free by a neighbor, but so far the offspring is not a fan of it.

I'm sure I would do fine with it. I imagine it is not available in Yucatan. Does Amazon sell ice cream?

Kudos.

Did you rest on the bench after toiling up the slopes?


https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...0e84472b23.png

Also, has the highest point changed since September 2016?
