That's purty good, as far as any context that I have. Anything in the neighborhood of 800kJ/hr is workin' my tail off. For ~3 hours, 700kJ/hr seems to be a pretty good effort. Centuries? Hell, I'm prolly 600 or under.

They usually go to the PO for the zip code, don't they? Can you intervene via tracking number or (5th circle of hell) you could call them.

Wonder what those spindly cranks are!!!?!?!?!?

Topline?

Also my favorite derailleur aesthetically :thumb: I'd love to put together a high end Japanese frame with a 7400 group.

I'd bet it's at a post office and/or mail sorting facility.
It'll probably only be there for 2 or 3 days, so you best get over there.

That's all I can retrieve online. My assumption should be that it went out with the mail carrier and then was returned to the post office?

Yeah, that's what I would assume. If you can't do anything else online, I'd do as LoP suggests and make a trip to the PO for that ZIP.

This was the sunrise at our campsite though.


We may have also crossed some lovely semi frozen streams.

Spectacular! As you may remember, my wife was there in May. What a wonderful place.

Super cute, but do not, I repeat, *do not* play this with audio -

Bring your mask too.

OK, I was thinking they'd just leave it at the old address. I moved a few years ago.

Hand wash in the sink, hang to dry in front of the fan. Good to go.

I did this when touring across the US. Worked fine until the super humid days in the south. There, we couldn't dry things on the bike. I made the mistake of wearing a tee shirt in Missouri and had a lot of trouble peeling it off.

Don't you just hate that?

My father used to travel with (and owned) a very light supply of underwear and would rinse it out and hang it in hotel bathrooms. Fortunately, he was cheap and partial to cheesy synthetic boxers, which dried rapidly.

When I was on the road 3-4 days a week, Id take shower with my running clothes on after going and hang dry them.

Oh, I've done that too, and washed my other shirt and shorts in a bucket on ocean races and deliveries, but you and I are cool and my dad was just an old refugee with grubby habits:love:.

Sounds efficient.

Lots of people getting infected, but (so far) the hospitalization levels don't seem to be in the red zone.

The most efficient person I know is my wife. Last February she did a business trip to Hawaii, then Seattle, then WV over 9 days and managed to only need a single carry on.

When I tour and have access to a shower I start off with my riding clothes on and eventually hang them to dry. Assuming it's not raining out, of course. I will also wash out my off-bike synthetic t-shirt if it's warm enough out because it will dry pretty quickly while I am wearing it. During a two-week trip I can usually find a laundry somewhere and wash the undies and other stuff in a machine.

Without wandering over to another subforum, does anyone here know if pro cycling is still on track to start in like two weeks? The NFL was talking a big game right up until it’s collapsing now as they start to actually come to it.

Luckily the folks currently living there said, nope he doesn't live here, instead of simply receiving it. Look Ethel, we got some free geegaws!

Looks like Ken Block drove his Ford Escort to 2nd overall in Ohio. Gonna have to look for video later.
