Last summer at South Llano River SP near Junction, Texas. Guadalupe Bass a good sized one for the species. Temp around 103 so I spent most of the day in the water.

I noticed that you are standing in the shale.
And on a bicycle, contact pedals.
Do you really have such a thing?

Shale or did you mean SHADE and if you meant SHADE yes I was as the sun was brutal at this time of the day to even be out in it. I am in Sandals and just had a picture taken with my bike and was not out riding like this... Nope I do not wear cycling shoes like these but do look neat...

Sorry for the bad translation, I meant shoes slates.
And don't take offense at me, it was a joke. I really like your look!

I myself once rode shoes slates in the heat.
I went to such remote places where the hunters made a tower (lab) in a field with oats to bait shoot a bear.
In the thick grass above my height, I tore one of my shoes slates.
Barely got home, almost died of the heat!
One leg was barefoot.

Happy to be in the Hot and Humid Sunny Sri Lanka!

It's not fair to expose yourself as a young 22 year old in the subject of the dead after 50 years!

28 years ago, I survived in Russia.
Then there was the great turmoil and the collapse of the USSR.
He worked part-time at an underground beer factory as a technologist.
There were no bicycles at all.
But I made a homemade narcotic beer for myself.
My wife forbade me to make it.
Because the men will get drunk and there will be grief for the wives.

HAH Very very observant for sure..This is the frigid confines of NW Ohio however in just about a week and a half we finally will be allowed back into Sri Lanka and will be on our way right away.. You could not wear this kit in Sri Lanka even in a air conditioned room..!
