welcome to my life when I am at work. A lot of walking in small towns.

Ithaca this week has the falls.

The US is never going to win sailing medals when people have this attitude.

Turned into a fun ride but after a coffee stop one of the guys crashed. He got up after a few minutes and finished the ride but couldn't explain why he fell. I looked around and there was a small gap which could have caught a wheel. I was right behind him and I don't know what happened.

A couple years ago I was with him when he tried to follow a car through a gate and the gate came down and hit him in the throat. Last year he crashed when the road narrowed and that time he broke his frame along with some ribs.

Other people have expressed concern about him in the past and today I was watching him and sometimes he seems oblivious to the dangers around him. Everyone likes him, he's a great guy but he worries me.

Glad you made it out for a ride and came back safely.

I would be worried also about riding with your friend.

Looks like the rain is done, if it dries I might venture out for an east ride.

I did. And I got an e-bike ride in. Not quite what I had in mind, but I left the bike at the shop yesterday and needed to get it home.

Had a good ride. A bunch of my friends did a sub-5 hour century in Delaware. It was a little too much of a time commitment for me, but doing a 4:XX century is on my bucket list. Maybe next year.

I did a sub-5 hour century as part of a fund-raising ride a handful of years back. I'd like to do one solo, though, and have been considering the logistics recently. I'd kind of like to get it done this year, but I'd really need to sit down and plan.

I don't know if there is anything we could do. How do you tell a guy he is a danger to himself and maybe others? Is it just situational awareness?

Inconceivable.

They didn't give me a chance to win one.

And yet you fared just as well as they did - kudos!

LesterOfPuppets how long would it take you to get your rig to Tokyo?

Airplane.

I'd be surprised if there were any current residents there.

The US has and will. A friend of mine sailed in the J22 class world championship regatta a few weeks ago with a guy from our area who has won 3 Olympic sailing medals. They won. That's kind of a big deal in sailing circles.

LAJ 08-07-21 05:33 PM

Those hills are about 4 miles away, at the very most.
