This is the current bike/set up I'm riding. It's actually @Matt Derrick bike, he was so generous to let me borrow it, so I'm taking it for a tour currently. Thanks again Matt!

fuck man, aaahhh i miss that bike. i'm really glad to see it lives on and is going on some awesome adventures. did you ever go to ragbrai?
Hell yeah man it's treating me good so far. Carrying a new chain and 2 new tires with me, can't believe the carcass hasn't shredded off the rear tire yet. It's cracked along the whole circumference, just won't give up! I'm running it till it goes! Ragbrai is July 21-27, and fuck yes I'm riding it this year! After that I hope to start making my way to the desert sometime mid August. Going to have to figure out how to get some more funds along the way if I want to be a lazy bookworm again this winter! Hope to see you there man!

Did a 1,000 miles this summer thru the NY southern tier Syracuse to Olean and the Adirondacks. I surprised myself being 65 that physical problems. I felt healthier biking 8-10 hours a day, rather than sitting home on my ass. I had a custom back rim built [Rick Bikes Buffalo is the best] with heavy duty spokes and a double walled rim.The back rim takes on such stress you can blow spokes but I had no problems with my heavy duty rims. Double Kevlar Vittorian Randonneur tires kept me flat free. My bike is a 10 year old Raleigh Route 1 with 20,000 miles on it. Everything has been replaced 3x.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

This shit is getting real, under self isolation - no, it's self quarantine now - thanks to some jerk who came to the Plant knowingly sick.
He has judged himself, as for me... my locker has been emptied because I am not putting up with that bullshit.
Looks like I just decided to take an early retirement, so on to greener pastures I go......
Be safe out there, perhaps we'll meet again when times are better.
I hope that y'all are good and safe wherever you may happen to be. Take care of yourselves, may the wind always be at your back <3

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!

aww i really like your new profile picture.
Beautiful day to be alive and listen to the birds chirp, remembering to be grateful for what we have and not worry about what we have not.
Healthy in PDX. Back here after years to keep track of those bugging out and to check in on those still on the road.
Just found out my neighbor died. One day I'm helping him change his starter, the next he's gone. Just walked around inside his house. That would be the first time I have smelled death. The eeriest though was that the UPS guy still left him a package. PS He was a big John Wayne fan!! RIP Rick!
