If you're not riding with a psychedelic gecko on your shirt, you ARE having a substandard experience.
Which Branch?purdue is close enough to chicago for government work.
maybe A Bombs, but not U2 Spy plane Photographs..
We had a series of brutal winters in the early to mid 1970s. Stretches where the daily highs were below 0 F. What has done it for us this winter is the wind. It seems any time it got cold, the wind would pick up. Nothing like being out in -15 F with 20 mph winds.
We have met the enemy and they is us.
Naw. But I'm older than I ever have been and the repetation is begining to chill my love the winter wonder land. I need to either move farther north / rural so there are more things to do in the snowy woods or farther south so I can road-bike and camp all year 'round. The shorter good-snow-urban environment-getting-in-the-way-of-bicycling-the-highways just doesn't cut it. Today is't just right to ride the snow singletracks but it's snowing and I don't have goggles yet... next year though.

It's finally above freezing here, and it's so nice to finally see all that nasty frozen stuff outside thaw!
