    My Final 08 Ride, and YES, Tamales Talk!

    Needed 30'ish miles to kick my BJ miles up to 5,000. Mission accomplished by Jeepers, it was tough! I did this ride a couple days before Christmas and it was easy. Today, the tamales, brownies and peanut butter cookies were fighting me the entire time. I actually wanted to ride further up the mtn but the tamales said,"NO!"......I got to the tunnels and still gave it a thought but the cars were in packs of 10-15. No way would I make it thru the narrow tunnels safely....Just when I thought about it a second time, the cookies along with the brownies thru in their opinion so I headed back down the mtn.

    From home, I have a 2 mile warmup across Rt 66 then up 2,000 ft in 8 miles. It was tough today but oh well, I'm back on track now that the tamales are gone!

    Pretty ride, Beanz. Looks very peaceful, as long as the cars can get around you.

    I know what you mean. I was tasting last night's spaghetti all morning.

    Ahhh...peanut butter cookies. A cold glass of milk and a pile of them sound good about now. Enjoy your pics.

    I could see how good tamales could really sit in your stomach and make their opinions known!

    It's a good thing I can actually go buy fresh made (same day) tamales. Otherwise I would be cursing you for making me want some tamales.

    I think I have found my New Years Day after ride/football watching food. Might have to add an avocado or two in there though.

    Hey Beanz, good on ya for getting the goal all squared away. I had a former co-worker here from Cali, who used to bring me in home made tamales when he & his wife made them up fresh. Man I couldn't wait to get home from work those nights. Good Stuff!!
