Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

In 2000 I had just started living with some interns in the campground at Mesa Verde National Park when the Bircher fire erupted. I was down in Cortez that Friday, but my friends were up there working. They swung by the campground while evacuating and got most of the gear, including my custom panniers, but had to leave most of the tents behind. We were forced to shack up with the rest of the students at the rented house in town. The next morning there was ash falling in town, and there was a weird, orange shadow to everything. I had never seen anything like it.

Happens a lot around here. Woke up to police on loudspeakers telling us to evacuate, had helicopters overhead,and dense smoke. Twice at the last house and twice here. Last time the cop knocked on the door and I could see flames behind him in the hills. I think about a dozen houses were lost near here that time.

Tomorrow is the consult with plastic surgery, for tendon repair. It's been nice operating with two hands for a couple weeks. Vamos a ver.

I also took a walk, so it kind of balances out.

There is a whole sub-culture out there regarding sourdough starter. Get it??

That gets one "heh."

Back when I was eating bread, I spent years trying to perfect a "country" sourdough, with a slack dough, raised and proofed in a linen-lined basked over 48 hrs and cooked in a steam oven. The results were okay. Then my wife made a bread with commercial yeast, one day skin to skin, and baked in a dutch oven. The result was superior in every way: restaurant quality with a crust that could lacerate your palate, a delicately stretchy crumb with holes the size of pigeon eggs, and great taste. Then she repeated it several times. Totally restaurant quality. At that point I gave up.

This was attempt #2 . Both times the results were really quite good. The time and effort required is a bit more for the sourdough compared to regular bread, but I don't mind. I will probably be baking a loaf every 4-7 days at least until we are back to going shopping more regularly. I am trying to get a little more lactobacillus in my culture so it gets a little more of the sour taste. Current version actually tastes about halfway between a "good" sourdough and regular bread.

Yeah, I like that San Francisco style taste. I never quite got that either.

A few of us are going to get our share of Cristobal today. High winds and storms. Looks like wifi is going to get the worst of it with abshipp and I getting a piece, too.
