I’ve spent the (mercifully short) week listening to a coworker mumble-sing (she doesn’t know many words, just the tune) along with damn near every sappy, shitty pop song on the radio, off key and off time.
New-old stock 2018 Transition Patrol, got on a hell of a sale.
Need a shuttle vehicle for two downhill mountain biking in the snow? Miata is always the answer. (18:00ish if time-cut link doesn’t work)
This took a hell of a lot longer than I thought it would to compile, but I’m glad I did. It was a fun trip down memory lane for me.
Had a pretty good wipeout on the mountain bike this morning, which unfortunately gave me a chance to find out how good my helmet
This is where I live. I’m fortunate enough to have the Appalachian Mountains/Blue Ridge Parkway and it’s amazing drives/climbing/hiking/biking essentially surrounding my home.
So I spent my weekend absolutely neglecting my lawn in lieu of playing dirtbag mountain biker (I think I made the right choice). 17 miles and 5400' of climbing (which also means 5400' of
descent fun time), all within a stones throw of my front door.
I started riding single track 27 years ago, with my last new ride being a 2004 Giant VT2 (I’ve been on an 8 year hiatus for bad reasons). Holy shit have bikes changed.
This could double as DC3LS bait, I’m guessing.

I’ve come to grips with the fact that I’m the only one around here cognizant enough to notice that the water cooler is empty, and thus always end up refilling it.
Edit: I should look before I leap, Ramblin’ actually made a couple posts earlier today when I was doing the unthinkable (actually working at work).
Fell down the YouTube rabbit hole and saw this commercial a couple weeks ago, and immediately thought “If Gary Larson did television commercials...”
Did not help.
2017 Mercedes GLS450 left headlamp, with night vision and curve illumination.
The first time I really displayed interest in music was at about four years old, and it was AC/DC’s “For those about to rock”. I think it was the cannons that got me, they were unique and interesting to my little mind and ears.
So winter is approaching, and it’s getting colder outside as it tends to do in mid fall. It’s been warm enough during the day (mid 60s) that we’ve been keeping our bay doors open as long as possible. When my coworkers and I opened the shop up Monday morning, we noticed tiny little kitten footprints in the dust on a…
