speaking of haters...
you'll never guess who i bumped into while in line at the burrito cart today.

yes, one of the original pirates, our very own - h8r

he's doing well, and although shaky on the idea of getting up "so early", is going to try and make it this weekend for laps at Haines.

man,, it's been a while since he rode with us.
and a lot has changed around these parts.

it was good to see the new faces last nice, and makes me excited for the new people we'll all meet once the weather warms a little.

for the time being it looks like only the toughest remain on the streets.

it must be in our blood.

Some of you pirate people suggested I repost this here.

My girlfriend and I will be traveling to D.C. for the World Can't Wait protest on Feb. 4th and will be bringing bikes. We will only be in town for a little while and part of it will be spent at the protest. What/where should we see/do/eat/ride while there? Will anybody else on FG/SS be at the protest?

boneless chicken. All (most) of the museums in town are free. The National Gallery is my favorite. http://www.nga.gov/
Also the Smithsonian: http://www.si.edu/museums
Asylum is a great shady bar. They also have veg. food. And if you hang with us, you will likely end up there.

I created a DC Pirates "Group Photo Pool" on Flickr. Sort of a pirate central for all our pirate related photos. It's a "public" group, so everyone feel free to add all your pirate pics. or just your favorite ones.

I don't know Hirshhorn would be tied for number 2. It has better sculpture and it's one exterior window has a great view of the mall.

For the record, I tried to edit this to say "tied for number 1" but the system wouldn't let my edit go through. The system was keeping me down, man!
