Do you ride like that, John?

Here is a video I found showing the trail near where I used to live. I first went up there 30ish years ago. Now there are shuttle services that take you up to 8300 feet. I always climb it and go up to 9000 where the shuttle can't go. Gets too crowded sometimes now that people don't have to climb it.

How do you know, when going up, that there is no one bombing down?

I was picked up far more frequently than me doing the picking. Including by Mrs. Seeds

Lucky you! They would rather stand for 8 stops than sit next to me on the subway. Now my younger brotherÖ

That can be a problem some places but you can see and hear pretty well there. Trail etiquette says the climber has the right of way, but some people don't care. Some trail areas ask you to use a bell.

I made it home before the thunderstorm, so mine was pretty good.

Yeah, it was hot here too. 90F. I made my normal commute wearing my standard kit; denim carpenter pants, t-shirt, work boots, helmet. Messenger bag on my back.

Flight was ok. We all wore KN95 masks. The fellow passengers wore masks but an annoyingly high percentage did not cover their noses. WTF is up with that. Is it some type of protest??

I've called record stores. The last time I did was when Tower Records was going out of business in Portland and I called to ask how much stuff they had left and if they were open regular hours.

I think itís passive-aggressive resistance. ďIím wearing a mask and that isnít enough for you?Ē

Either that or they're just stupid.

I should make "Road Boss" videos where I show how I avoid getting crushed by tanker trucks on the Middlebrook Pike expressway.

Google street view pictures don't count.
