Addiction 2023.1

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

Road trip is not the same as sitting on a bus with strangers.

And after injuries from hockey caused him to miss work, his wife asked him to stop playing. I think he still has the motorcycle but I don't think he gets out much.
My son and I got into RC cars for awhile. Of course, it was Porsche versus Ferrari.

Why the F are toys so expensive now.
That’s why we just carry extra Xanax and Valium with us. Goes right into the diaper bag along with a pill cutter or razor blade.

Don’t worry - instead of a 529, we’re contributing to a therapy fund. Doesn’t have the same tax advantages, but whatever…

Where to?

The longest trip I ever did in a bus was when I was a ute and the ute group went to Colorado. Not exactly the same as being trapped in a Greyhound, but the same idea.

Utes are in Utah. Yutes are young people.

You could still smoke on buses a couple years after they shut that down on planes though.
