    Into the Blogosphere

    I just launched my first online tour journal on crazyguyonabike.com, with an acount of my recent foray into deepest Indiana. Unlike some of the rides highlighted on the site, my ride is pretty tame--no mountain roads in Outer Mongolia or anything like that. But there was lots of great riding, a near tornado and even a brush with Dan Quayle, sort of. You can check it out here: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/journ...c_id=1750&v=my
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    You look pretty good next to Dan Quayle. I think he needs to lose some weight.

    Your Amish children photos were spectacular.

    That is truly fantastic work there Blackberry. I know it had to be a very memorable ride, and to have captured it in print and pictures the way you did is priceless. That is a very interesting bike!!
