Kewl, so I'm not just that ugly.

Congratulations on the ride, looks like every had fun with the exception of the thorn incident. Better luck next time!

Oddly Chipcom does not look at all like Monroe in drag as his old avatar led me to believe

What I really want to know because it concerns me is this? Was Chipcom's jersey saved, or did the blood-stains not come out? It looked like it was an 'event' type - and I hate to have ruined it!

My blood really is safe - trust me, I have all the blood tests to prove it!

Another thing to carry in your kit, just-in-case:

Surgical gloves, in case someone is bleeding - right?

You are joking, correct?!?

The blood should wash out of Chipcom's jersey.

Actually, I've been using surgical gloves for working on cars and bikes for a long time; they're great for keeping grease off your hands, especially for road side repairs when it's tough to wash up. I have a couple of surgical gloves in my rack trunk (which I rarely carry - most rides I make do with a saddle bag).

Never needed them for blood, though.

Well, I am serious about being worried as I do not want to ruin Chipcom's jersey.

Mine is pretty foo-barred. Nylon+multiple snags and 'runs' = fugly

That wasn't a jersey, it was a Vancouver Olympics t-shirt that an old client gave me for a gift. It's soaking now...but I think it'll be fine...but if it's not, I'll take it out on you with butt sweat and guad pain!

Surgical gloves are nice for fixing flats and stuff too....I keep a pair in my commuting trunk bag, but hadn't got around to throwing any in my tiny 'rec' trunk bag.

Hemostats are good too...never know when you might find a roach to smoke.

Chip - your wife is beautiful and you are pretty nice looking yerself (I usually picture you as Marilyn so this is a welcome surprise).

Peter and Cindy - Pete I hope the war wounds heal quickly. Keep them clean. I have learned from experience that those type of scratches do become infected! And I figure maybe 4 months, Cindy will be riding without you... too embarassed to ride with a ****** like you!

Yup! I keep trying to tell her, a few weeks and she'll be faster and able to ride further than me, as she has none of my health issues - just short legs and that's what GEARING is for, right?!

Chip - any Saturday or Sunday - you, Mr DanW, with or without the ladies - I am game! Riding is much more fun with others! And since the house and move is like 95% done, the little stuff can get done on rainy days now, so it's TIME, TO, RIDE!

I really have to see what the day brings. I have an install today and my wife gets off at 4:30ish. We may be able to get a ride in if it isn't storming.
