I've always been one to see what needs to be done, and then do it.
With that being said, I'm sorry to say that I feel it is already time to say goodbye. Instead of a Century, just consider my time here a Sprint.
It was great finding a forum about bicycling -- and a group of folks that have been as great as all of you have been. But I feel I've been spending way too much time going throughout the threads and posting, and to that I must put a stop to it right now. I think I've racked up close to 200 posts in less than a month! I check in here in the daytime, and I check in here at night. Doesn't seem to be a middle ground -- and I don't seem to be developing any discipline with it -- which says a great deal about how great the forum really is, and what a draw it has for me.
I will be leaving a few other forums as well (bodybuilding.com, etc.) for the same reason.
You all take care of yourselves. It was great meeting all of you for the short time that I've had here. I didn't want to head out without saying goodbye.
Have a great 2006 -- and many more years to come.
