We do need to pin down a date and meeting location though, so I can finish up the BF C&V AZ flyers! (and post the thread)
I'll be available from the 6th until the 25th of January for planning purposes. Location isn't an issue - well, unless we're doing some outlandish climb, and then my gearing will be a limiting factor (not my legs, of course ).

Hey, when it comes to napping, I have to say it: no animal does it better than a cat (after all, most get in 14 hours of practice every day)

^ If I did, it would be her death sentence; my understanding is they eradicated all the feral felines around 2007 and the last one - protected on the sly by the civilian contractors at the GPS site - passed away due to natural causes this past summer.

My mom will pay her plenty of attention over the next 12 months, though

My daughter is only 3 months old and has not paid any mind to the TV previously. But, yesterday, she was really into the E Street Band and when I turned her away she got pissed. Turned her back to the Boss and she was happy.

My little angel was the same way but instead of The Boss, it was The Minutemen. She seemed to almost be drumming along with the beat! My wife went to take her out of the swing and pee-wee lost it, so she left her and the drumming continued. That papasan swing was great but the supposedly relaxing sounds of nature did nothing but irritate my daughter... I put on some Dead Kennedys and she would fall fast asleep!

(not sure why it flipped the image sideways but you get the idea... PunkRockAngel)

Thanks to D.D. I installed my first set of fenders. Planet Bike version - looks like I'll get to try them out tomorrow since we're getting a good rain/snow mix tonight. Now I just need that repro set of Trek decals to make the bike look just a little better.

You live in Washington, and this is your first set of fenders?!

Apologies for nitpicking (the bike looks great overall!), but the fender line might look better if there wasn't such a gap between the rear wheel and the forward part of the rear fender. Maybe add a little rubber stopper/washers between the fender and the chainstay bridge?

Thanks - I didn't really like the look of that and per the instructions used a zip tie to attach to the chainstay bridge. I'll mess around a little with it. I've moved the tire forward in the dropout a little but had to balance that so I didn't get any tire rubbing.

I've lived in eastern Washington most of my life - much less rain than the Seattle area and typically if it rains one day it'll be sunny the next. The last time I lived in Seattle was 10 yrs ago and I wouldn't ride then. Didn't trust people - today it would be a different story. This spring and fall were different with a lot more rain here in my part of the state so I started thinking about fenders more. D.D. just pushed me that direction a little quicker.

Heading out to try them now.

^using a spacer fixes the fender line but then changing the real wheel is a PITA

use a spring as a spacer... its still kind of a pita but you get a better fender line and you can still take your wheel out

We did - well, actually my artsy brother-in-law did all the rock work. River rock base from the creek and the sides are cultured stone with a concrete block wall to allow us push the stove back closer to the wall but not have combustion concerns with normal wood framing. The mantle is also mortar that encases
a thick styrofoam that can handle up to 2500 degrees F. The whole unit radiates heat beautifully.
