In other van news, I'm glad I never got rid of the $300 2001 Chevy Venture whose transmission started slipping a year back or so.

Turns out the 1-2 and 2-3 springs are pretty easy to replace and less than $50 for the shift kit. I might have 2 fully functional nearly identical minivans pretty soon.

We briefly window-shopped them before deciding we'd rather stay in hotels, and you can get a lot of flights and hotel nights for the price of one. We probably still wouldn't have, but that equation looks a little different these days.

Velo Vol should look into tiny mouse living.

Slow day. Everyone must be resting from Everesting.

Out on Cape Cod some of the beaches allow you to camp so long as your camper is self contained (has a bathroom). There’s a ton of really cool older Winnebagos that have 4x4 conversions, lift kits, solar power. Pretty interesting to see RVs rolling around on 35s

Oh boy! I was listening in on a conference call and making some noises (stomach muslce cramps) and other sounds because I thought I was on mute. I was not.

My ride had 1,929 feet of climbing. If I had done 14 more laps....

I had 3.5k feet of elevation on Sun - I needed to recover from that.

Sure does.

Right out of a Progressive Insurance TV commercial.

The subject matter of the call is actually quite interesting. Wish I could talk about it.

On my prescribed easy week. Went swimming, and the neighborhood pool is nearly a hot tub. Even for me.

I'm impressed, 213 unread emails in my inbox this morning.

Maybe 30% of them substantive :rolleyes:

Can’t believe someone thought “Detonator” was a good name for a pneumatic tire.

I agree.

I was on a low mileage week last week but may go even lower this week.

1. I’m tired; no days off since sometime back in June.
2. Avastin injection tomorrow so I won’t ride on that day.
3. Nothing but 90s and high humidity after that.

Enjoy. I need a light week too and I lack reasons 1 and 2. HRV was in the red zone this a.m. and it's either training or COVID.

Hope it’s the former; the latter means more than a light week!

Me too. And there are so many other terrible things to croak from at my age.:cry:

Now you've done it - you went and edited and now it looks like I've given you a thumbs up for possibly having covid. :mad:
