Odd Voyages-to other Forums?

So I'm floating around in Missouri (Mountain-Plains) and who do I find over there! Actually He was talking to people in Utah?... I'll let him confess...

I frequent MissouriNew England and Europe...anyone else float around and what's the climate like?

Missouri? Pretty quiet but in the budding stages and some great racing.
New England? Nothing like the NorCal/Socal comraderie, scattered, great collegiate competition

I like my NorCal

Be sure to have a Garmin or Powertap graph to post. They're a visual group.

What? You don't always check Road and Foo forums? The FOUR forums I always have tabs open for are NorCal, Foo, Road, and CycloCross.

Late Thursday night a bunch of 50+ folks got their pirate-speak going and took over the Road Forum. Yarr!

Is that what you meant by the thread title?

Hello, Mr. Pot. Meet Ms. Kettle.

You certainly don't strike me as cranky, but Old? Dun dun dun -- join the crowd!

I visit the angry bitter land of Commuting. I don't know why they are so angry, but they are.
I visit long distance for info, but there isn't much fun there. Way serious folks.

Road because I like to hit myself in the head with a hammer.

50 plus because someday I'll be old, like Taxi777

Nowadays I pretty much only read here and Foo on a regular basis. I got a bit burned out a while back, and that's how the tree was trimmed.

Well, most of them have brushes with death on a daily basis. That tends to lower one's opinion of humanity a tad.
