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

Best wife...

I am very near the mandatory evacuation area of one of the major fires in So. Cal. I had ran in very early in the morning to secure some of our companies IT assetts. While there, I called my wife and told her to wake up and watch the news and make preps for moving out, I'd be home soon.

When I arrived home, both my bikes and all wheel sets were ready for me to load up on my car. In the bag that she has started to pack; she added several of my favorite kits, my sidi shoes, my compex muscle stimulator, and all my spare tubulars.

What a wife!!!!

You should write a manual on how it's done. I know my wife has been throwing away my water bootles on the sly just to spite me or make me think I'm going crazy. I have accused her of "Gaslighting" me on several occasions. She just smiles and calls me paranoid.

Edit- Saw that stuff on the news, hope everything comes out ok.

Best of luck with any escapes you might have to make!


I had an aunt who lived in SoCal back in the day and got evacuated once because of fire - but they had a pool, so they through lots of stuff into it - including all the 'good silver' in a cooler full of bricks.

Well good luck to you! I was watching the news this morning on the Lake Arrowhead fire. Many people driving out with trailers, horses then a car with bikes on a roofrack. That would be me if I were in that situation. Gramma will just have to hope her wedding pics don't burn!

Well my wife just dropped my sorry ***** about 30 minutes ago when we were taking a 1.5 mile pull into the wind.

At least she waited for me when we turned...........


Hope you are OK with the evacuation and all.

At first I though it will be Campy vs. Shimano wife discussion

Best of luck to you. I hope the fire will bypass your area. My sister in law had to evacuate and now is driving North to Bay Area with her three kids to stay with her husband's parents...

Sounds like your wife is my wife's sister !!

"Gee, I know I had a pair of middle weight tights"
"Damn, I can't find that unused 7-11 skinsuit I was going to sell on Ebay"
"Where the heck did I put my shoe-covers ?"

Must've been "accidentally" thrown out when cleaning a closet.
