So I called it a century. Still respectable. Came home and crashed for a couple hours.

Speaking of crash, a clubmate on a different ride went down hard. I am told his pedal came off. I know he just came back here from Arizona, so I am suspecting the pedal was not torqued enough, but not positive. He was apparently unconscious for a minute but came to before the ambulance came. He is at the hospital but I am told no life threatening injuries.

Tomorrow we have a short ride, then heading to NJ for Fatherís Day. My dad is 88, so I donít know how many more Fatherís Days he has left.

Sorry to hear about the fall. btw do you have siblings?

I have one sister. She is not a cyclist.

In 2020 when even the parks had the water turned off I resorted to using a 70oz Camelbak on the road when it was over 100. I tried the bottle in the back pocket, couldn't stand it. I put on a handle bar bag and put 2 bottles in there but I couldn't get comfortable with the way it affected the steering feel and the bag took away some of my hand position. I could never use a bottle launcher (seat post cage) because it would interfere with my badonkadonk.

Do you ever see her? I have 3 sisters and 2 surviving brothers. I only see the sister who lives near here. Our family blew up when my eldest brother passed in 2003.

Could make reefing and unreefing difficult. Or your mainsail could start pulling out of the mast, which could get "interesting"

Yes. She lives in NJ. She had a (thankfully unsuccessful) overdose in the spring of last year and had a very unusual brain injury that made her need lots of care and rehab. It was essentially a hard reset to much of her brain so she had to relearn many basic skills. She spent all of last summer here (doing outpatient rehab and Mrs datlas took care of her), and thankfully has had a good recovery so she is back in her apartment in NJ, we donít see her too often but every couple of months.

Glad it’s just that.

Pulling out your phone to see if there's a notification is a shorter drive than turning around. :fred:

My garage door is manual. And steel. Because steel is real.

You settled for only 100 miles. I don't know . . .

Another 50 miles is a big add-on. Double metric option would've been nice.

My alarm system app on my phone shows me whether my garage door is open or not and, yes, I do have to pull over and check the app occasionally.

My main concern is whether he knows his garage door is open.

My main concern is that we have another person posting those.

Oh I remember some of that.

You can post Honda pics if you want.

One thing that amazes/cracks me up is how turn-of-the-century S2000s regularly go for more than similar year/mileage/condition Boxsters these days.

LesterOfPuppets 06-18-22 10:13 PM

Trying to decide if I should make this my first concert I attend since Covid hit. But dang $63, considering the last time I saw them was with New Order and Gene Loves Jezebel and it seems like tix were $12.

My dentist loves the S2000s. His wife (hygienist) saved her money and found him a really clean one. He had it for a couple years and one day it was parked behind his office and a woman throttled her car into a parking stop and launched it on top of the S2000. Destroyed it.

I am willing to consider posting a Saturn pic of the day, but am pretty sure the interest and/or excitement level would be too low.

datlas 06-19-22 03:58 AM

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.

yikes

S2000 might be in my future - but if prices continue to climb this option might be less attractive

saw them in the late 80's

also saw New Order around that time - with Tears for Fears and one other band (can't recall)
