Addiction 2022.1

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I think we might have peaked in my county finally. Still too early to tell, though.

Our extreme spike, over the last month, has been predominantly Delta.
Sad!

I do agree that covid cases have peaked in many areas of the country and are likely be down to pre-Omicron levels in a month.

What happens after that is a big question. I am hopeful we won't have big bad waves in the future, but no one knows.

I can't quit the FB Marketplace. Too many good bikes. And cars. I come close to getting one of these babies every now and then but then think an MX-5 or MR2 would be more fun.

Only $2k for this beauty though.

Mrs datlas really wants an MX-5 Miata. She tells me that when the Saturn dies, I will get her Fit and she can get a new Miata.

Both of us checked in for the one hour flight to Merida, leaving at 5:25 PM. Then we will use public transportation to get home.

I recently drove my step-father's '16 Miata for a couple of days. It's a blast. I haven't driven a stick for a while. I had forgotten how much fun it is.
