...and now we have rain in So Cal!

Oh well, my new bike has fenders, so I stay much dryer.

Glad you're sunny in CO.

This weekend...ugh, where do I start?

Have to prepare for a Basic Backpacking class I'm giving next Saturday.

Take my oldest son to get his tux for the Senior Prom.

Ride my bike to Orange County to pick up same son's truck from the shop.

Check train schedules. I have a class in Orange County next week, and there's no way I'm driving down there. Plan: Ride from my house to the Metrolink Station. Fold bike and take on the train to OC. Unfold bike and ride to class. Evening: reverse. It will be an adventure, and I'm really looking forward to it.

You know, it amazes me that it's cheaper to drive my Sequoia than it its to take the train!

One of my friends has a birthday on 4/1. What to get him...

Otherwise, eh...not much.

By the way, congrats to your son for getting a house. MsVicki. Glad you can still afford them in TX.

Gonna be 56F today, so I'm going out for a ride. Only 40F now, but I'll give it two hours and it'll be nice out.

I suppose I shouldn't mention that I've had sunny days since the beginning of january I put on 1400 miles during that time. Not going to put even close to that many miles while I'm in ghetto houston though. *sighs*

Warmer, sunny weather has melted the snow here in Maine has inspired me in getting my bicycle out of winter storage, giving it some preventive maintainence, and getting some riding in.

After replacing my helmet, I headed up into the Belgrade Lakes Region for a couple of days and was able to do about 20 miles a day. Not bad for the first times out for the year. Great when considering that one gets a better overall feeling after the exercise since snow and cold temps limit your activities.

After getting a little rain here, I hope that the bright weather will continue so that I can continue to ride and train now that spring is here....May the snow melt soon in your area Snowy.

Well maybe weird for New York but not Colorado. We are in for a storm tonight, tomorrow rain/snow mix kind of thing.
I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon so it won't bother me whatever the weather plans on doing.

Hang in there guys it will get nice.
