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

Same, but that was after getting no letters on the first guess and only one letter in the wrong position on the second guess.

This is funny. People are scavenging Yeto coolers on the shores from Washington and Alaska after a cargo ship lost a container full of them.

Seems like a lot of work for an overpriced cooler

If you're just walking along the shore and you see one, it's gravy.

But I know what you mean about overpriced. Last year, my employer gave us 20 oz. Yeti insulated mugs. I looked up the product on line. IIRC, it retails for about $35.

For those of us that zwift. I use apple TV since the update last year that rendered my laptop useless.
A couple weeks ago zwift did something, added steering to the app that uses one of the channels on the blue tooth, so that I am short a connectionneccesitatinh my using the connect app. I read that I could get the Ticker X and my cadence would combine with it so I would again have full function without using the companion app. I couldn't get it to work so I have been using the app. Takes forever to get everything to register and connect. Then yesterday, without the app, it all connected by itself upon opening the app. And performed flawlessly. Did zwift change something? I'm not all that tech. But that was just plain weird.

I have a couple of colsters of 12 and 16 ounce can variety, but they were gifts. They’re perfectly fine coolers but I’d rather buy an ORCA

My three new jerseys, randomly purchased from eBay, are all XL. A Gore Wear full zip, Asian sized with the zipper on the wrong side. A Novara full zip, and a Pearl Izumi half zip long sleeve. The latter two fit beautifully loosely. Two out of three ain't all bad. Is it grammatically correct to put two adverbs consecutively?

Thrill of the chase, plus getting something pricey for free.

Thankfully, no. It's best that it's all just virtual. The people who are here may not be really here. They may not even really be people.

I can neither confirm, nor deny, your conclusions.

I was going to say that some of the "people" here have met IRL, but then I realized that they could just be imaginary people describing an imaginary meeting.

Once you get into the https://igbconline.org/programs/bear...tant-products/ Certified Bear Resistant coolers even the "Ozark Trail" coolers get costly. The question is do you need one to go tailgating?
