    My 9/24 bike ride

    Went to Marquette today to ride the north trails. For some reason I was thinking they are easier than the south trails. Ugh, perhaps not. Actually, I rode 3-4 more miles today than usual; so that probably had something to do with it. I knew what route I wanted to take, so I headed out. It was a little interesting since I had never gone on a lot of it previously, but it was good. On the way back, I knew I had to get on the Penstock trail; so I did. I eventually got there. Problem was that was down by the river. That meant a lot of climbing to get back up to elevation. It's not a long climb, just mostly UP! I'll be honest, I walked a lot. I was quite a way into my day, so I was getting tired. I got to the Blue Heron trail, and that was good. Then THAT trail started going up. Ugh, I didn't remember that much up! By the time I was getting to the end of the Blue Heron trail, my ass was really draggin'. I had already eaten my half a Cliff bar, so I started on my Skratch Labs bar. Ginger and miso; cannot recommend it. So I found this for a distraction. I got to the last half mile of my ride and decided to stay on the gravel road. More uphill!! I ended up walking a little bit. Ugh. I smiled when I saw my truck. I love my truck. I went to the Y for a shower and then to Vango's for supper. Now I'm super tired and would like to go to sleep. Thank you for reading. Nighty night.

    Cross Or Mtn Bike???

    You want to bring the Anthem. Bring the Anthem. You'll be disappointed if you bring the other bike. Make the time for Blue Diamond. You'll be disappointed if you don't (because you sound like you really want to go there.)

    Material things or time?

    I used that fantastic line from that fantastic artist for a while as my signature line in my emails.

    Actually I was thinking more along the lines of Swedish pancakes. Mmmm, almost as yummy as Finnish pancakes.

    New door confused kats

    Ha! Sounds a lot like our screen door. I replaced all the wheels a couple/three years ago. I replaced the screen with pet thickness screen when I installed this cat door. The screen/French deck door was originally installed around 1990 by HoSmudge.
