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.
Not that there is nothing left the air is starting to clear a bit.

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.

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.
