    I think I'm getting the black lung.

    Damned forest fires.

    We have 1-2 mile visibility because of the smoke. Training in this **** sucks!

    Tell me. Sherman didn't burn us as badly as we got carbonized this year.

    The news reports that our fires are only going to get worse. "Uncontainable" was the word the fire guy used.

    Outdoor sports practices are being canceled. Sometimes I wish I had stuck with football or baseball.

    As if. My one lung holds more air than a normal person's pair.

    My house isn't in danger thankfully... But I am sick of waking up everyday smelling like a sausage.

    Hurricane, eh? My best friend moved to HI just in time to get sodomized by "Flossie". What a stupid name.

    When I flew to Washington state from Denver the flightpath was over a portion of montana. Egads that was some serious smoke when we could see it from 33,000 feet up.

    If you saw a big valley full of smoke and could sense "anger and scorn", you flew over my house.

    I get done riding and I hack and cough for a while. Thinking about doing a circuit race tonight if they still put it on.

    Ah the abandoned smoke inhalation training regime. All of a sudden you are going to find yourself in the flatlands with smoke free air, not to mention the extra oxygen, and you are gonna drop killaP on a trike.

    What doesnt kill you only makes you stronger..


    (If I has smoky air around me I would curl up and cry like a little baby rather than train.. But we are not talking about me are we?)

    It's bad all along the slope. Going to school in Missoula? If so, I am required by law (almost literally) to hate you. Sorry.

    How about unpacking the trainer?..

    I hear that KP is allergic to latex.. (I did ride the course a couple of years back on a rec ride.. Nice climbs)

    From the second I stepped into my doctor's office for the first time, it was only 23 hours before I was in post-op recovering from knee surgery. It wasn't an emergency situation either, just a routine clean-up.

    Stick THAT in your Canadian pipe and smoke it!

    A 3M half face respirator available at the nearest hardware store will work wonders for smoke with the organic filters that come with it. If I can ride for 40 miles at a time with a mask on, I bet you can too. Granted the rare air in the mountains will make it a pain in the ass, but hey, better training, and no coughing.
    Bring back the Sig Test!
