    The Sweetest Sounding Word...

    ...is VACATION!!!!
    My panniers are loaded for a solo 50 mile ride to the Ohio river to camp overnight. Hope to head out tomorrow. Its over some big hills and I seldom ride loaded.
    Friday is a family trip to Holiday World waterpark.
    Saturday is a 62 miler for Lance's Foundation.
    Man,I hope I survive my vacation

    I am being "laid-off" from work for the next couple of months. I use it as a VERY enjoyable vacation. The unemployment checks cover all of the expenses, and I can cycle EVERY day without being too tired from work. What a great summer it will be. It is great. I am going for a ride now, to see if I can get my first 100 mile week in.

    yeah work sucks it's cutting into my biking time, Saturday I had to work from 3pm to 1am, so to make sure i had plenty of bike time I woke up at 7am, hit the road at 8am and spent 4 and half hours on a 70 mile adventure I wasn't to friendly after 10 at night, good luck with your "vacation" be safe and let us know how it goes.

    I am jealous! Being self-employed, I have not had a decent vacation in over 20 years.....
    BTW, I noticed you have a million posts. I think I just beat you by one.

    George, I'm self employeed also. Only you can make time off. Cross it off on the calender and write "NO WAY" on it. Then run like ****. Get to a place where there is no phones and you'll be allright. Personally, I have to let go to preserve my own sanity. Remember, you can't take it with you.

    Too true!

    I finish teaching summer school Thursday, then the rest of the summer is all mine! I made enough money teaching three weeks of summer school to have some extra spending money so I can have some fun this year.

    I am swimming every day already, riding when I have the chance to, and have a cruise to the Cayman Islands to look forward to in late July. I love vacations, too!
    Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

    It's the tunnel at the Tunnel Hill Trail!
    JUST got back from my ride. Unloaded my bike, made a BIG glass of iced tea and checked BF.(I see I forgot to unlog,oops) I know I should have checked BF 1st but it's 90 outside and I missed my iced tea
    Whoever laided out the Trans-America through Illinois must be 1 twisted mother!! Hill after hill many at least a 10% grade. I had a great primitive camping spot up on a hill overlooking the Ohio River at Golconda. I'll post a picture after I get my film developed then scan them.

    Silly me, I thought the work was, "PIZZA!". I must be hungry!
