    Where's Hip?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but his blog is gone, the Photobucket links from his old pics are missing, as well as the sig. line from his previous posts.

    A link through the station site takes an inquiring mind here:

    Yes, he's on the radio with the Green-man.

    We've been downsized.

    He posted the same on his cycling blog a few weeks ago before shutting it down. His riding has been less and less frequent as well.

    Yeah, I think he had an injury that ended up being worse than initially thought and he had a long time off the bike. I'm not sure that he's still 100%, which might explain the absence.

    Hello men....you too Psimet...

    I'm touched by your concern.

    I just finished doing a story about a guy who was busted having sex with the vacuum hose at a car wash at eight in the morning.

    Such is my job.

    Anyway....downsized the blog effort and haven't been active here or elsewhere in a while.

    That injury was indeed worse than I thought.
    And toward the end of the season I lost a lot of fire to ride.

    Iffy weather conditions that, in the past would have never stopped me, now put me in the mood to simply do other things.

    I bet I'll catch the fever come spring and start a fresh blog.
    People were leaving more and more nasty messages there, having nothing to do with riding and everything to do with politics or other things.

    Hope all is well you guys.
    We shall ride again in '09.
