WTH is wrong with me?

So far, for this summer I've turned down a trip to england, a bike tour of Europe, a vacation in Belgium during the beginning of the Tour, and a cruise in the Baltic sea with stops in Copenhagen, St. Petersberg, Stockholm, and a handful of other cities. Keep in mind that for each of these things, I wouldn't have to pay for anything.

I've turned them down so I'd be able to race this summer. WTF is wrong with me

You need a noogie, a wedgie, a wet willie and a tittie twister for this. What would suck is if you got injured early in the season, and had to sit it out and think of all the stuff you passed up.

Good luck, I hope you have a great season.

Yeah, I better! Knowing I'm missing all that awesome stuff definitely makes me want to make the most of my season.

Maybe you ARE a closet urban thug after all Erik.

You are pyschotic. Welcome to the club.

By the way I won't go on a family vacation without my bicycle. The bike goes or I stay.

Europe's not going anywhere but I'm assuming the free trips are gone after you turn them down. if racing means more than drinking and checking out Europe at this point in your life, then have a good season. If you could take your bike and get a few internat'l races in, that'd be cool

Oh yeah, g-homie, trippin' and whatever else I'm suppose to say. I did pour a little cytomax out for my homies though.

You know, you CAN race your bike in Europe too...and come back to the states a better racer.

Especially in the Benelux - you might want to lay off the "medical" herb.

Jus' sayin' is all.

The hospital?
What is it?


A big white building with lots of sick people,
but that's not important now.

You got a letter from headquarters this morning.

What is it?

It's a big building where generals meet, but that's not important.

Dude, you are missing out. Unless you are confident that all these opportunites will present themselves again, travel a little. When you get a little older <cough> like me, you may regret missing the opportunities.

But if you must stay to race then you better WIN!

What is a 'triangle of foreign passion' exactly?

I went to Europe the last couple of summers and got caught up in a triangle of misplaced luggage. Fortunately the bicycle was never misdirected. THAT would have upset me.

On second thought Penguin, unless you can do all carry on baggage, stay in New Paltz. Besides, what could Europe possibly have that the lovely Hudson Valley can't offer?

I thought a "triangle of forein pasion" was some type of French pastry.
