wow, it's been awhile. the packers got wupped by the damn cowboys. not cool. not cool at all. the d needs to get healthy, and rogers needs to get rid of the ball sooner. other new things that are happening are me listening to "Death Magnetic" as much as possible. that shit is good. tickets are already in hand. the Sword and Metallica, the same night!? fuck yeah! it's late, and i'm tired. more soon. for real. g


what a glorious day in b'ham! my hands got tired of filing and sanding some lugs. so me and raz cruised out for a ride. today was pretty much perfect up there. the dirt was primo, the temps were nice, and you could almost smell fall getting closer. if it could only be like this everyday. just have to hit it when it is. new caps and cycling hats are finally back from the embroider snail shop. too bad the camera is in costa rica with jill right now. when i find a way, i'll post some pics. the mt baker hill climb is tommorrow. looks like the weather will be as rad as last year. if i wasn't so outta shape, i'd head up. but the day job is taking up too much frame time. and with the show coming, that takes up some of the ride time. but that's ok. tommorrow will be a good day to mtb. g


it feels like summer is ending. dark earlier, too much rain, football is starting. pretty nice weekend though. kevin came up from salem to do what he does, machine. so i can fit and weld tubes together. joe also came up from seattle to hang and ride and drink beer. good times. went for a sweet four hour ride saturday. now it's back to the grindstone. getting ready for the oregon manifest. too busy for much more right now. late, g
