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

For those who disdain drip coffee, allow me to introduce you to the percolator.

Not sure how many cups of coffee I take in, I just keep drinking until the pot is empty or it’s noon time, whichever comes first.

I did that for a year - cowboy coffee on the stovetop. Then I splurged and got a drip rig. Today was fancy coffee day, but I only got a double shot latte as opposed to my usual triple shot, that's almost like decaff, right?

Over lunch I did some lottery shopping, just in case I buy a ticket this weekend and hit the jackpot. Looked at some wallets, thought "those are nice, whadda they want? $200?"

Nope, $400-500

So one of my cycling friends apparently had a small stroke a couple months ago and was diagnosed with Afib, and put on Eliquis.

He told me his cardiologist told him he cannot ride his bike on the road while on this blood thinner. He is resigned to ride on the trainer for the time being.

I told him I did not really agree with this, but he should listen to his doctor and not his friend.

I'm sure he'd be okay riding. It's the fall that might kill him.

Prolly.

I understand slight risk from severe crash but if it were me, I would keep on riding.

That's not a percolator. It doesn't boil and re-boil the coffee.

I consider it a refined percolator. It boils the water and forces it up through the coffee under pressure.

However, I concede your point.

I have dealt with people on anti-coagulants with lacerations or abrasions in the field. Wound Seal will deal pretty well with external bleeding. Helicopters are for internal bleeding with anti-coagulants on board.

Heavily traveled trail, more a hiking trail than MTB. Only about 4 miles of houses then a few miles of AG ... hmm.

Why do you ask?

Nope, gotta be Camelback, looking east. Figured that AG was too close to be Piestewa after mulling it over a minute.
