Pretty sure I saw a Jandro doppelganger at 4:20 mark.

I'm thinking of doing Seattle to Portland this year but have no friends who would want to ride with me so not sure if it will be fun by my lonesome.

I want to do Portland to San Francisco this summer, maybe I could start in Seattle first and do that leg too.

Roommate was talking about doing that too since he has some stuff in storage down there so he could rent a truck to get back. Sounds like a pretty epic ride if you take the 1 all the way down.

If you end up doing STP hit me up, I'll be doing it fixed most likely since I don't own any other bikes.

Alright I mopped up some stuff here.
I think we'll be better off keeping such a subject in the confines of the politics & religion subforum.

Today I put in 60 miles and 12 hours visiting 11 different museums around the city. It was a free admission event despite the fact that most museums don't charge you admission. MOCA is offering a two year membership to people that complete this 10 museum challenge today. Needless to say, I am beat.

That sounds pretty cool. I'm not much of a museum guy, but would have definitely partook in this.

Today I have a day off having worked 18 days straight. Just gonna hang out and do some food shopping. 20 degrees right now means no riding today for me. Tired of winter.
