Working hard at it.

Last night's street situation

Last night's departure time 11:15 p.m. (just for my records)

Got home late on Sunday after driving for a very long time from Minneapolis. We attended the yearly Frostbike show up at QBP. I have tons of photos and a complete write up about that. I still have to let some stuff sink in before I can spit them out. After arriving home last night I wanted to get out and ride. My legs were stiff and the pending date of T.I. were haunting my head. After chatting with the wife for a while she went off to do more homework for her classes and I slipped into some more uncomfortable and set out in a snow storm on the new Pugsley. The snow was driving and nothing was plowed. I followed car tracks on abandoned streets and got in some solid riding. I was spent when I got home. Showered ate something and then laid down and went into a full on coma.
This morning I woke up, had massive amounts of coffee and a bucket of oatmeal and set off on the Pugsley again. You see this bike is addicting. I want to make some comments about it soon. I got in another 3 hours and again drained the life out of myself. I later went grocery shopping and I finally convinced myself that the Specialized prostate popper needed some cleaning and de-rusting. Never disrespect a bike. I am now nursing a tootheache with some whiskey and will be planning a visit to a dentist soon.

That fuckin' tooth has been bothering you for too long. Kill it.

The Pugs is pretty damn beastly. I am sure that will be a bike in the stable for some time to come.

Is the Pugsley thinking ARROWHEAD in the future?

Sometimes the pain of the tooth gives me more anger to ride harder!
I hope not to do Arrowhead but I am sure people will con me into it. My only concern is my asthma. So far I have been riding it everyday. It's the bike that is coated in crack and you just can't stay off of it.
