Sorry for the late start this week, but I've been swamped with stuff at work and home improvement projects.
I'll just say I'm coming to love my touring bike-turned-commuter. A comfortable ride, lots of space and just so cool to be riding a classic. I took my bike into the LBS over the weekend to get a new derailleur cable and even the mechanic commented on what a cool bike. I guess I've found the right LBS.
This week's topic: things falling from trees. Around here, black walnuts are just beginning to drop onto the MUP. Has anyone been hit by one of these natural bombs? I know before long parts of the MUP will be covered in them, making quite an obstacle course.
The only thing I can say is better black walnuts than the fruit of the osage orange or bois d'arc. Those things look like a pebbly green softball and weigh about the same as a bocce ball. There is a tree near the MUP, but the fruits don't seem to land on the trail.
