excited-kids out of school, I can ride to work again!

im really jazzed. My Brooks came the other day, and my kids got out of school this week, so tomorrow I can ride to work (new-er job, partly crushed rock trail in addition to paved). This'll be great.

Does anyone have a good source for merino t shirts? My job is uber casual, and we dont have a shower, so id like to coordinate a bit with things that I can either wear to air out, or that I can wear under things and still look nicer when I get there.

A quick google search for merino wool tee shirt yielded two names that I know...SierraTradingPost.com and Backcountry.com.

You might start there....
