I am done riding until the plague passes. I read the Merida paper yesterday afternoon and decided it was best. Nurses are being attacked, in public places, for being on the front line with the capacity 'to infect us all'. °Sad!
I truly hope it doesn't devolve a lot further. There was another story about a family in a town nearby being isolated and accused of being infected. The husband lost his job over it. Very superstitious.

I've been doing a lot of "virtual" riding. It's fun, and it relaxes me...to a degree. And, in true video game fashion, it allows me to unlock and use "neat" things, which always makes me feel good.

Rest week for me. Tomorrow may ride my age.

Enjoy. I don’t know who U.S. Cavalry is, but that path quote is attributed variably to R. W. Emerson and someone named Muriel Strode.

Horrible. And I thought that the covid demonization facing minorities in the US was bad.

Thanks. Yea, the quote (based on my understanding) is really unknown in terms of origin. There are some persons loosely associated with the phrase who used it at various points in history, but nothing concrete regarding its origin that I've found. That said, the US Cavalry (US Army recon specialty) utilizes that quote as a motivational phrase for the act of "reconnoitering" or performing reconnaissance. When we go into an area, we're often the first there, hence, go where there is no path. Then, subsequently, we leave a trail for those that come after us to follow. But again, where it originated, I don't really know.

Check obvious stuff like gas cap, big leaks. Find the vent control solenoid. It should have battery voltage on the pink wire with key on engine off . It's probably near the front of the tank. Sometimes the wire breaks inside the insulation. If you don't have scan tool with outputs you cold apply power and ground to the vent solenoid and it should click. If that checks out test the purge solenoid. It's on the engine near the throttle body. It should have power on the pink wire too. It should pass vacuum when it has power and ground. If you have data on your scan tool look at the fuel tank pressure sensor first. It should read 0 vacuum key on. If it reads something other than atmospheric pressure with the engine off, it needs to be replaced. The only exception is if you drive a while and stop and open the gas cap and there's a lot of vacuum. This would still see the FTP sensor go to 0 once the vacuum is relieved.
If you drive a lot of dirt roads the canister could be restricted. Let me know if you have any questions about evap stuff.
I didn't see the part about the evap code being consistent last night.

Couldnít she do two years close to home, and then transfer? I think you mentioned before you were worried about her maturity and her being at USC. Two years close to home you could see how serious she takes her classes and make and make a decision from there. I think with most majors, from my experience, the first two semesters is taking most of the required non major related courses anyways.
Just my two cents.

Edit: Happy Belated Birthday!

Bike Content: Single bike out of the van, tandem assault vehicle going in.

Should be 50s with 15 mph wind in an hour or so. I was going to stay in but wife said load the tandem and I don't argue with my wife. Nope. Never.

What do you work on?

They should be banned.

Laying on my back, without my head propped up was the most painful position.

I did have my (thin) pillow. Still, it's quite an unnatural position. I can't sleep that way unless very tired.

Don’t worry about surgery.

Haven't seen them.

Anyway, I never thought this was a surgery problem. My neck has started to creak and make noises, though. Not sure if that's aging or what.

Hard to know for sure, but I sense some outdoor mask shaming here.

I want to ride, too. Nice day, first dry day in a while. Now to decide where/what to ride.

Good news for you. I started my group ride on Zwift with my club. About 12 minutes into the planned 1 hour ride, I got not 1, not 2, but THREE patient pages (texts really, but we still call them pages #RIPPager). I could not in good conscience make those patients wait 45+ minutes even though none of the issues were really an emergency. I did 20 minutes and got off to put out the fires.

True. My daughters love them, though.

Crunchy Cheetos or Puffs?

I rarely post fake miles, unless it's something special.
