    MADISON, WI Cycling swap meet this Sat. 13th

    I've never been there before but Coach Jerry tells me this is a HUGE deal in Madison this Saturday, with lots of cycling stuff and bartering. We're riding out there to check it out this Saturday afternoon.

    Just a heads up....

    Anyone else planning .... been there??

    ....OH.....and when I say "riding" out there....that would mean in his van. Yeah, I'm a winter-weather whimp. The nearest I get to a bike this time of year is on the training down in my cycling room!

    I'm planning on going out there after I go out for a ride Saturday morning (as long as the roads are safe). Never been there before but it looks like it should be worth the trip.

    Mission accomplished.
    At least it's not one of those damn puppets!

    You need me to look for anything for you at the show?

    I'll have my digital with me and post a few shots here in this forum afterward as well.

    Jerry and I will be there about 1:00.
    He's gotta stop at some other bike shop to pick up some stock for his place or something like that. This is gonna be a fun day.

    Wife was not impressed. I said, "Hey, do we have any plans on Saturday?" I ask because I just don't pay attention when she tells me things, and as far as I know we are leaving for a week long trip somewhere exotic.

    She says, "No. Why? What do you want to do?"

    "It's about an 1.5 hour drive-"

    "NO. It is going to snow this weekend."

    10 minutes later..."Where did you want to go? You never did tell me."

    "Uh. Madison."

    "Wisconsin??!! Let me guess, it's probably some bike thing."

    If I keep working on it I might end up there.

    HA!

    No snow.
    Just a few flurries possible and a high of 30 Sat.
    Driving conditions will be fine.

    Light snow possible Sunday night into Monday morning. You should be clear.

    Hmm....I'm really starting to think I might go to this. I've got a lot of parts sitting around that I have wanted to unload to "good homes" I wouln't bother renting space, but maybe have it in the car for the right trade....

    My son is sick so I am sooooo going to pay for this if I go. Let's see....wife PO'd because I went and did a bike thing on the weekend? Why it is already starting to feel like summer.

    Funny thing is she asked me again tonight what it was I wanted to go to. Before I could even tell her she was giving me all sorts of reasons why I shouldn't go. Doesn't even bother to find out, just hates it because it's bike related.

    *begin internal dialouge with God* I know I did some bad things...ok a LOT of bad things in my life, but god do you always have to play the "everyone around me will hate bikes" card again? Why not off one of my pets or something? *shakes head* I know, I know...builds charachter.

    you need to learn how to spin this in your favor, man.

    she knows how much you want to go, but if you stay home, watch the boy for a while, let her go take a hot bath and have some alone time, you will start stockpiling points to be redeemed when it's most important... when you want to RIDE.

    if you want to unload your parts, you know all about eBay....

    Turns out I have to spend all day tomorrow hanging out with her family for my mother-in-law's b-day. Get this for her b-day she wants to sit around and watch the bears....

    So her mom said that my wife "should go to the bike thing with him."

    Packing up now...whole family will be there.

    I think she's going so that there's not enough room to fit any new bikes on the return trip.
