Nice, Billy. Dogs are good, no matter what their nose looks like.
way of shoulders, and is usually pretty well trafficked (both cars and bikes). It is a very green, coastal redwood ecosystem.
Mt Diablo is not nuts, just a really steep climb right at the end, but it is probably more fun on a road bike, IMO,and there are better views.

Survived my club ride. It was supposed to be an A- ride but a bunch of A riders showed up and pushed the pace. Shortly before the halfway rest stop I was working too hard and got nauseated, so I got shot out the back. I caught up with the group at the rest stop but 5 miles later the A guys put the hurt on again. I joined a grupetto with 3 other riders and we finished the 50 mile ride at a civilized pace.
Since we're posting pics of dogs, here's one of my girl dog in a blue dress. She was paralyzed in the hind legs when we adopted her. As you can see she is fine now.
Peanut was smart to resign with the Bears. $3.5 million isn't bad when you made $8 million last year. I remember when the Bears drafted him from Louisiana-Lafayette in 2003. Now, he's one of the best defensive players in Bears history. Take the $3.5, play another year, get hurt for three or four games, and hang it up. 2013 Walter Payton Man of the Year, all kinds of lucrative options open up in the Chicago market.
This is the information someone should have been giving Brian Urlacher. He'd have a chain of restaurants and car dealerships in Chicagoland by now. Instead, he's taking silly shots at the team, further alienating the franchise. Like Ditka did initially.

Given the choice of a dune buggy bed with wheels or a bed with a slide, my kid chose the bed with a slide.
I tried to steer him towards the dune buggy bed. It was far cooler. Then I realized it wasn't my bed.
I've had a few Sam Smith Oatmeal Stouts recently. Pretty tasty.
I did the 10A Saturday ride with the Goon bunch. Good fun and not the hairy scary sketchfest I had come to believe it was.
They do pedal quite hard at times.

Ok, so processing all of the sage advice, I spent some time with Mapmyride and now have a new plan, which I am liking.
Gone is the circle the state plan, and this is more of a six and change centuries ride that has me sleeping in 4 different states, and it lines up so I can spend one night in New Paltz with my boy, and one night with my parents. Six full century days, a 65 mile ride home from my folks on the 7th day. Only one day with more than 8k ft of climbing, which the old plan had two days at 9k. Oh, and there is a ferry ride to cross from NY to Vermont.
I am liking this. And I wouldn't have thought of it with out all of you. You folks are the best.
