Addiction 2023.4

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

LesterOfPuppets I love Workingman's Dead. My dad played it lots growing up and I still listen to it every couple months. I prefer their tighter studio albums like this and American Beauty more than the endless jam band stuff, although that can be fun too in the right mood

I like their folky/bluesy/countryfried stuff mainly, so Workingman's and Bear's Choice are the only two Dead records I spin on any kind of a regular basis.

Even though one side of Bears Choice gets kinda jammy it's still killer.

Oh wait, now that I'm on a computer... those are lugnut wounds aren't they? gnarly.

Must've been the front wheel of the truck then.

I have listened to Easy Wind for about 45 days in a row. I have kept my Playlist at work mostly the same for that long. I like that album a lot and I agree with the dislike of their jammy stuff.

That’s a Mansfield bar. Named after famous actress Jane Mansfield.

I was without a bike during the decade of my thirties. I lived on a farm on a gravel road, and mtbs and gravel bikes were not yet a thing. I was in the best shape of my life in my twenties. I was a runner, a cyclist, a Sunday soft ******. I could chase, and throw a frisbee over long distances for hours at a time.

I thought it was the front part of the truck, but not sure. The highway was going from three lanes to two.

Yeah now that I'm on a monitor those look like front wheel lugnut wounds to me.



Hopefully it didn't have these, seems like they might've lifted the car up off the road

We had a good ride. It started out cold with temps barely above freezing. It warmed into the 40’s for most of the ride, and the scenery in Lancaster County was gorgeous. We had 10 riders and everyone behaved so we stayed together pretty much the entire ride.

I had Moby’s ‘Play’ album playing in my truck, in Ohio, for several months. Now it’s Sonic Highways, by Foo Fighters, in the car.
