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

Contrast the above with abshipp's plane parking.

We could park side-by-side in the driveway, but Mrs GeneJockey seems to have lost the ability to park so as to leave space for my car.

I'm scheduled to get both a COVID booster (2nd) and Shingles vaccine this afternoon. I'm curious how that will work out for me.

He is becoming known.

My convos with Bill sure improved after the second booster. My personality has become magnetic as well.

I have 15 bikes in half of my garage. They are on a raised floor I built with ventilation, and then a moisture barrier (plastic tarp) then the wooden floor. This means I can totally cover then with a tarp, and moisture will not come up from the concrete. They never get damp. ...............................well............almost never........It doesn't work if I pull the car in the garage with lots of snow on it.

There’s a story there but not worth telling.
Did your iced coffee not come sweetened? I didn't know that was a thing until I ordered one at Starbucks a few years ago. That fist gulp came back out rather violently.

I believe he dislocated his shoulder in a crash. Might be in some pain tomorrow. It was a fun race to watch.

I drink my coffee black.


No the wanna be college kids working the shop didn’t make my coffee after I ordered it. Three customers came after me and got their coffee, while I am standing around like an idiot. The “baristas” wouldn’t even look at me, finally I went up and asked if I needed to go back behind the counter and get it myself. The response was, I thought the other girl got it. Then why the **** am I standing here stairing at you with no ice coffee in my hand if the other girl made it!!!!!!

They just wanted more time to stare at your bike shorts padded booty. Your demanding self ruined their hopes and dreams.

called air parks. They are all over the place. Used to flight instruct at one in Bull Head City Az.

Dream used to be to live at one, but flying for a living has kind of soured that idea. Last thing I want to do when I get off work is look at a plane.


I also never got my A&P and do not want to pay for an annual inspection or oil change or anything related to MX.

While my 4 cylinder [car] has more horsepower [but is probably heavier], it looks like the ailerons on the plane are operated via Shimano Dura-Ace brake cables that darkened over time.
