    I am moving to washington state

    I am moving to Washington state next week. I have a job and I got insurance.
    I am going back to being a life guard and an instructor.

    the bad part is, I have to leave my bikes for now.

    not even 1?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    not even 1. it cost more than my plane ticket to fly out with a bike.

    thinking I might take groupset with me. and buy a frame next month.

    congrats on the job, for one.
    for two, don't sweat the small stuff. it will all work out in the end.
    besides, its going to be cold there compared to where you're at, and until you HTFU you might not want to ride anyway

    you should just dump all clothing out from your luggage and stuff the bike in it instead.

    Or you could pack all your stuff in panniers and ride out there. Can you imagine how cool that would be?

    Congratulations! If I lived there I'd probably have a frame you could have.

    Heh, seems like a decent idea.

    How about buying something used and just selling it when you get your other bikes?

    what I would suggest as well....just something decent for $100-200 to keep you going ...could always flip it later.

    That's a full time job? And actually pays well?

    Cool....we're gonna be semi-neighbors now. Awesome!!

    We got to get a meet up C0urt!!

    Maybe its time for a Seattle area meetup when c0urt gets here. CliftonGK1, Mill Creek, HardyWeinberg, SteveSurf (if he ever makes it back for a business trip), keithm0 and probably half a dozen others I'm forgetting.

    What size bike do you ride c0urt? Maybe you could borrow my old "comfort" bike (Trek Navigator) for a while until you can get your own bikes up.

    No kidding. How much clothes does a lifeguard and swim instructor need? Just swim trunks right?

    You'll be going nuts with your photography again too, c0urt! This is some of the most photogenic landscape anywhere!

    You forgot me ...stringbreaker, kpug, poppaddio, BengeBoy, and probably another 20 or so who I've forgotten (but I am older than you are, so I can get away with it).

    Yeah, a meetup would be great!

    Sounds like you need yourself a folding bike, c0urt.

    Congratulations on the job and the insurance. Hopefully the new neurologist can give you something more than a shrug.
