What would be the plan for something like that? Stay out there for the work week and then home on your weekends?

Huh. LPLO on the desktop, even though I've posted on the last page on mobile. :foo:

For some reason I seem to be immune to LPLO. I think it hit me once a few months ago. I use chrome on MacBook and Safari on iPhone fwiw.

basically. Iíll have to get a crash pad and essentially live there on my work days and then come back home on my days off. I also pray I have more than 2 days off in between or itís going to really be tough.

Woof. That'd blow. Welp, fingers crossed that it's not for long, if it does come to pass.

Is it ok for someone in your line of work to use the word crash so casually? :twitchy:

So the rubber strap to my Cygolite Dice front blinkie broke. The replacement strap is only $2.95 (which is reasonable IMO) but shipping is $7. I can't bring myself to pay that. Any fellow thrifties have suggestions short of a zip-tie?

Broccoli rubber bands are the new duct tape.

The rubber strap on my Serfas e-Lume 600 headlight broke. Warranty item from Serfas. We keep them in stock at the shop. :)

I contacted cygolite they said it would be under warranty only if 1 year old and this one is 2 years old. I may try asparagus or broccoli bands. Or will try to find a code for free shipping.

Mrs. GeneJockey ordered some fancy dogfood that comes frozen in packets, and they use big rubber bands to put 7 packets together. Those rubber bands turn out to be the PERFECT size for tying up a folded-up tubular tire!

Okay, so that used up 3 of them. Now, what to do with the other dozen or more....

Works best on the bartape, it jiggles around way too much on bare bar.
