Well, look who's still alive.

Hello again everyone,

As you may (or may not) have noticed, I've been pretty much MIA since the end of August. I started going to grad school and have hardly had time to think, let alone go on long rides. I still commuted 2.5 miles every day though, so I was being somewhat active.

Now I have finally started getting back in the saddle in earnest. I bought myself a nice trainer so now I don't have to just take 2 hours out of my day for a nice long ride. Now I can multitask.

I hope everyone here is still doing well and hopefully I'll add to the conversations a little more now.

Joe

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

That's 'cause we're highly mobile! Nothing on earth moves as efficiently as a human on a bicycle, after all.
