100 degrees when I got home, so it worked out. Didn't really notice too much heat on the bike. Glad I stayed close to home.

at least you didn't have a run in with a snippy snarky woman biker that would question why you don't have this-or-that

My house doesnt even resemble "normal."

A baby shower? Is this a shotgun wedding? I thought it was a wedding shower.

Baby shower for a friends daughter. She’s married.

Our kids are not involved or coming.

Geez, fer someone that recently made a declaration about the only way to brew, you're sure not up to date on your beans and processing, are ya? ;)

There are different varieties of beans grown in different regions, under different conditions (altitude being a big factor) and that undergo different manners of processing to emphasize desired characteristics: in addition to the common washed, dry/natural, and wet-hulled methods, "honey" processing is becoming more popular and there are folks experimenting with stuff like anaerobic fermentation.

FWIW, lately I've been in to medium roasts (but would have been considered a light roast, 'specially for espresso, a short time ago) of dry processed beans from moderate altitudes that are smooth, sweet and notably berry-forward.

I am aware that the lighter the roast the higher the caffeine, so this batch is semi-oscuro instead of the full monty. And I am aware the high elevation coffee does not agree with me. I am still motoring along on my single half-size cup from 8 this morning. Yesterday I had a second cup(instant) in the morning and had trouble getting to sleep last night.

Yes, I know all that second paragraph stuff. But RJones made it sound like they're pulling new varieties out of the air. There was a time when I had coffee growing out on the farm and I know it takes years to produce a single crop.

It's a new dawn, since that little debacle when I thought I was no longer addicted. It's been a long road back.

Oh

seedsbelize2 09-03-22 04:18 PM

And I'm still up on that one small cup of coffee, and I had a productive day to boot.I wonder how long it will last.

seedsbelize2 09-03-22 04:19 PM

Moving over to stage 14 just as the first peals of thunder arrive. I might not finish it.

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.

Geez! 93 miles and I'm only 9th on the Leaderboard. Y'all are taking this riding stuff much too seriously!

And tomorrow's supposed to be a hot one. My plan is to get out by 8 AM so I'm done before Noon, then take a siesta. We'll see how that works out.

genejockey 09-03-22 05:49 PM

Today I learned that the trunk of the Dodge WILL fit two bikes, but it would be a lot easier if both riders weren't over 5'10". One of the riders on the C&V ride was feeling a bit off, so I gave him a ride home. He had to lower his saddle, but once that was done, the second bike fit fine.

All you need to do is a nice 145.4 mile ride today, and itís all yours.

Couple of min from yesterday. Short, but 3800 feet of climbing and about 80% gravel

Kudos. I got a 6.

We had a really good ride yesterday. Our “private” group seems to have blown up as friends of friends of friends are now showing up, but luckily everyone was a good and safe rider so it worked out great. I was the unofficial ride leader and was prepared to chew out anyone that pulled a doosh move, but it was all good in the end. We are now at the Jersey shore as mrs datlas loves the ocean. It’s not as bad as a baby shower, but I would rather just be riding my bike tbh.

Johnny Majors classic next week at Pittsburgh. Can the mighty Panthers take 2 in a row vs. the Vols?
