Check'n out

It's been fun for the last 4 months conversing with everyone. But today I put in 20,000ft of verticle and it's time to check out until next spring. I'll be back (as Arnold would say) but now it's time to change sports!

20,000 feet of vertical is a very respectable was to check out! Stay warm until spring.

Just because you can't ride- doesn't mean you have to abscond for a few months. Still want to hear your views on rebuilding the bike- what Upgrades to get and what colour socks to wear. And how are we going to drool over your Xmas presents if you don't tell us what they are?

>>> time to check out until next spring. . .it's time to change sports

As one of the Society of Furry Brethren, I think I see all the signs. Ol' Cyclin's "sport" is hibernation [aka, Extreme Sleeping] and he is actually a sleepy brown bear!!! Best not to bother him. . .if you think a wakeful bear is grumpy. . .

You can check out any time you want, but you can never leave.

Hope it's a short winter for you, but whatever you do have fun and hopefully we'll see you in the spring. That does work two ways though. Some of us may not be here.
