Addiction 2023.2

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

I had it 15 years or so ago. It was pretty brutal.
I found out what it was with an already scheduled blood test. The doc saw the results (low white cell count?) and rattled off symptom after symptom to me.

Same mosquito as Chikingunya. And yes, Chikingunya is debilitating. Our housekeeper was diagnosed with stroke. It took a real neurologist, who was familiar with the disease, to reverse that call, months later.
It seems to hit women, in general, harder than men. My wife has friends who say they developed cancer from it. Is that possible? In any case, they have long Chikingunya or something like it.

It inflamed my ankles so bad I could not walk down stairs until I fully recovered. When it hit me, my wife thought i had meningitis because my neck and joints were so stiff i could barely walk. It hit me on Friday in Antigua. When we got home Sunday, it felt like the fever broke, but it still read 105.

I still have ankle and other joint issues.

Yes, the GT3 is just sexy with it.

On the other hand I don’t know how any of you guys live where you live. Extreme heat, extreme cost of living, too much snow, too much rain, cracked roads.

Velo, Dan333SP and I are the only ones that live in a perfect place.

I'm good with it. The Audi Nuvolari grill is very close to that anyway.

Just went to slide the seat forward 2 mm. Apparently during the ride it slid all the way back, it also scraped the markings off the rails so I couldn’t tell where it was before. I slide it forward and using a tape measure based it off the madone got it where I want to. Also did the knee string test, right down the middle of the spindle. Also with the seat position I think the stem length is good.

We’re only 6 games in. Settle down, Blackbeard.

That said, I’d be surprised if the Red Sox win more than 70 games.
