Long Division

Well, it's Friday morning and I am done with work for the week. So, besides sleeping, I'll get the bike ready for a ride tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday. With a couple of nights of camping in there. It's my last weekend off for a while, so I plan to enjoy it. Next weekend, I work; after that I go on vacation.

For my summer vacation, I'll ride to Mexico. Unfortunately, I doubt you'll get any pictures from me. There are two reasons. One: someone else already took much better pictures than I can take. You can see them here. Two: I'll be in a hurry. I have to get back to work in early July, and my ride begins with a plane flight to Calgary.

Oh yeah. It's technically a race. Though I have learned one thing about myself: I don't hurry so well just because I'm in a race. Failing to plan adequate time, however, gets me to hurry pretty well. So that is what I have done. If I don't make my quota of miles for the day, I'm flirting with dropping out just to avoid getting fired!

Wish me luck! I'll do my best to avoid hypothermia, grizzlies, heat stroke, rattlesnakes, and probably some other stuff. When you see me in July, I'll have a story or two to tell.

Wouldn't it be nice...

...if every day ended like this? 
...if I didn't look so goofy?

...if I heard these sounds every time I went to bed?

...if I always had my girl at my side?

...if I could start every road ride here?

...if this little guy wouldn't look at me like this?

For getting a flat right off the bat!
